The Christmas Wedding Guest by Susan Mallery was published last week, 30/09/2021 and already it has made a pretty impressive mark on the Christmas reading market. We were lucky enough to be sent a copy of this one by the publishers and are proud to be part of the blog tour TODAY! (Head on over to Instagram (link here) to check out what Mills and Boon and the other bloggers on the tour thought of this one!)
Dena and Reggie are sisters from a small, quirky town called Wishing Tree. Wishing Tree sounds like the kind of place I want to live. It’s cosy and community centric, it’s also completely Christmas mad!! They have rules and rituals regarding when things can happen, what you have to do, who you have to help etc etc and it all adds to the charm of this beautifully written festive read from a new-to-me author.
When Reggie comes home for the holidays, after a long absence, she doesn’t anticipate her teenage sweetheart being back in town as well. Things ended badly for them and when she starts to have feelings for Toby, her head starts spinning.
Dena on the other hand, has total control of her life – she has recently decided to have a baby, by herself, as she doesn’t need a man to follow her dreams. Or so she believed…. when Micah – a hunky ex rock start turns up to stay at her B&B she starts having second thoughts about giving up on love.
So with the two sisters working their way through their respective tangled love lives, we get to enjoy the back and forth, the Christmas atmosphere and of course the secret star of the show – Belle. Reggie’s dog is in practically every chapter and wears the cutest little doggy outfits 🙂
I read this one really quickly and it has that kind of heartwarming feeling you get when you read any festive book. It makes you want Christmas to hurry up and arrive, and everything that goes with it. I’m a hardcore thriller girl myself, but I branch out for festive reads about this time of year. There’s something so cosy and comforting about reading a Christmas novel, tucked up in bed with a hot choc.
I can 100% recommend this book to get you in the mood for the best time of year. Read it now to kick start the merriment.
Happy Christmas reading! 🙂
