Hazel never set out to be a wedding planner. She was just helping her stressed sister Lila with cakes and décor for her big day. But when Lila and Ollie's summer ceremony is a runaway success, with guests raving about the food and styling at the pretty venue, word about Hazel's expertise soon spreads.
But Hazel's clients expect the very best - she's promised lawyers Gemma and Eliot a snow-covered castle in the Scottish Highlands, and laidback couple Josh and Sarah a bohemian beach wedding in a Caribbean paradise. But as weather, in-laws and wilful brides conspire against her, can Hazel get two very different couples to walk up two very different aisles to say 'I do'? And will she find her own happy ending if she does?

My review - I love, love, loved this story!
In this story we follow Hazel, she lives by herself after her twin sister, Lila, moved out with her fiancée, she didn't get the promotion at work that she was promised and she hardly speaks to her best friend Sam anymore. Then one day, Lila ask Hazel to help plan her wedding and Hazel didn't think it would of been as fun as it was. It was very stressful but she loved being able to help plan her sisters wedding and make it a special day. Then two of the guest at Lilas wedding ask her to help plan their wedding and also a guy at work, Josh ask her to help him and his fiancée plan theirs. She soon realises it is a lot harder than she thought with both of the couples she is helping going through a tough time, and why does she always have butterflies in her stomach when she sees Josh?
This was not only a romance story but a very beautiful family story. Hazel and her siblings have a lot of problems but when they come together for Christmas they all seem to let loose and have a wonderful Christmas time together.
This was the perfect read for Christmas. This book had me laughing, sighing and occasionally awing at certain moments. I really loved the character of Hazel, she was always trying to help all the people around her and do what she can for them but never really took time for herself or find romance for herself, but that is what she does in this book and it was so wonderful!
If you are looking for a fabulous Christmas read then I cannot recommend this one enough as I really loved every second of it!
