4* Review: The One with the Engagement Party- Erin Lawless – (Bridesmaids #1)

28504409

BLURB

Nora Dervan is getting married… but her four bridesmaids are more full of secrets than champagne.

Bea has barely gotten past the fact that her two best friends are seeing each other, and now they’re engaged, and Cleo is rather distracted by the hot new colleague she absolutely, definitely must not sleep with. Daisy is dreading the singles’ table, whilst Sarah’s own marriage hasn’t turned out to be all she hoped it would be…

Flowers - My Review

The One With The Engagement PartyWell it is the ‘wedding season’ and this short introduction to the ‘Bridesmaids’ series, captures the atmosphere perfectly. The vivid and image rich characters and dialogue in this novella, make it an enjoyable read. All the bridesmaids have an interesting story to tell and this introductory book makes you want to find out what happens next.
There is a refreshing realism about this story, which many who have organised a wedding or been a bridesmaid will recognise. The overbearing ‘mother of the bride’ and the ‘best friend who hasn’t been asked to be a bridesmaid’, are particularly well portrayed.
If you enjoy light hearted contemporary romantic comedy, this is for you.
I received a copy of this story from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

5* Review The High-Street Bride’s Guide Samantha Birch

Brides-to-be, this one’s for you!

You can say your vows in a catwalk gown so beautiful it reduces your mum to tears (and not because she paid for it).

You can style a reception so stunning your guests won’t believe you didn’t hire an A-list planner.

And you can sprinkle the day with personal touches that make everyone feel like you gave them special attention before they even got there. Without spending a house deposit on it. Honest.

 

 

My Review

 The High Street Bride's GuideI have to admit that when I saw ‘The High-Street Bride’s Guide on NetGalley I thought it was a ‘Rom Com’. On reading the blurb I realised it was a non-fictional guide to achieving the wedding you want without having to take out a second mortgage and I was intrigued.

I got married over thirty years ago before the infinite choices provided by the internet and the modern preoccupation with designer weddings however I have a daughter in her twenties and decided the opportunity to update myself on today’s wedding choices was too good to miss.

The guide is user-friendly, full of anecdotal humour which presents the factual information in easy to read bytes. Broken into key element chapters with links on the contents page it is possible to easily dip in and out of this eBook a must requirement for any guide. Packed with options and cost cutting tips this guide is a great aide memoir for whatever type of special day you want and caters for all budgets.

Brides-to-be can save hours of research and disappointment by following the guide’s advice and finding the right shops and websites immediately. ‘The High-Street Bride’s Guide’ uses professional research and personal experience in every chapter. With regular updates it should be a bestseller.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Collins UK Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
