Matilda Parker is flying to France for what should be the wedding of her dreams but soon discovers she is about to star in her own private nightmare.
Freda has spent a year planning her daughter’s perfect wedding and nothing is going to ruin it. Not even a house full of relatives, the imminent arrival of her feckless son-in-law-to-be or his irritating parent’s will be allowed to spoil it.
On the other side of the village, Anna has problems of her own. She loves Daniel with all her heart. With all her family about to descend, including her precious sons Joe and Sam, Anna has vowed that nothing will ruin their much-awaited summer holiday.
Beneath a sweltering summer sun, two clans, a naughty dog, a gaggle of relatives and friends gather in the Loire. But when a visitor from hell pays a surprise visit and Joe bumps into Tilly, it looks like all of Anna and Freda’s plans are about to go up in smoke…

This is such a beautiful, interesting, heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking story.
Tilly ( Matilda Parker) arrives in France two weeks before her marriage to Luke Crawford, but after a rather shocking and surprising accident she is happy to find that Joe, the person and his family who she met a couple years previous when in France trying to make sense of her broken relationship with Luke after finding out HE has cheated on her. Although the book Tilly is overwhelmed and confused with her upcoming marriage to Luke who she is no longer in love with and has found her soulmate and love of her life in Joe Harrison. There are many subplots woven into this story. Although it’s part of a set of books, I’m reading this a stand-alone never having read the previous books. And it works absolutely perfect, I don’t feel like I have missed out of anything from the previous books, but after reading this outstanding book I WILL be reading the three books which are already safety sat on my kindle ready to read.
I also loved it was set in France, it’s like it was a 3d film playing in my head, that’s how nd I especially loved the few French doted hear and there. Which made me look up so I’ve learnt a few French words\quotes.
Oh Tilly, Tilly and Tilly, I fucking love her. She is extraordinarily realistic. She is kind soul struck in what she thinks is an absolutely impossible situation, and caring about her friends and family so much she is prepared to whatever to make them all happy and not be a disappointment to them.
Joe he’s such a sweet, lovable and epic soul with a heart full of gold and goodness. Book boyfriend anyone?
Every other character is flawless, likeable and epically brilliant. Patricia definitely has the knack and a fantastic to draw such incredible, all-around likeable characters and brings them to life every step of the way. Each and every character has there own spotlight within this story. Even Lady Louise!
I love Patricia’s writing style, it just flows so exceptionally beautiful. She has a way with words which grabs you and pulls you in.
The pacing is perfect, not to fast and not too slow, with just the right amount of build-up, tension throughout. And it’s one of those books that sucks you in and doesn’t let go.
Oh my fucking God, when I was sent this cover I was left utterly speechless, It is sooooo beautiful. And it is completely perfect for the book in question.

Patricia Dixon was born in Manchester where she still lives with her husband. They have two grown-up children and one grandson.
Ignoring her high school reports and possibly sound advice from teachers, Patricia shunned the world of academia and instead stubbornly pursued a career in fashion. Once the sparkle of London life wore off she returned north and embarked on a new adventure, that of motherhood.
Now, almost thirty years later she has acquiesced to the wise words of her elders and turned her hand to writing. Patricia has written a total of eight novels; the latest is due for release in March 2019.
