Julianne Morgen, an American, has landed a dream job as an event planner in an historic house in Cornwall, England. Her very first event is a celebrity wedding – piece of cake, right?
This author has a wonderful comedic touch in her writing, slipped in where the reader isn’t expecting it. A couple of times I had to go back to make sure I HAD read what I thought I had (confused? I am when I re-read that sentence!). Even when I find humour in a story, I very rarely actually laugh out loud, but with this book I did a couple of times, so take a bow Ms Briggs. There are also some really poignant moments in the story, that didn’t bring any tears but did make me pause and think.
The author has a deft, light hand in her writing and this makes the story very easy to read. She paints pictures with words and brings the ‘Manor’, gardens, and countryside alive in vivid prose.
The story flows well, the pacing is good and the characters are “real”. As far as I noticed, the book is well-edited which is always good to find and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be reading more books by this author
This was a sweet little novella that I would've easily devoured it in one sitting if life didn't get in the way.
The author admits from that start that she's never been to Cornwall and this did fill me with apprehension, but I need not have worried. There were one or two details that might leap out at people who know the area well, but for me I was transported to Cornwall. I especially liked the visit to The Lost Gardens of Heligan, which is a family favourite of ours.
The lead character, Julianne, was likeable and her story flowed from scene to scene. There were no chapters, which I found unusual but it helped keep me involved in the story and I didn't want to stop reading. I also really liked the love interest in the story, Matt.
With Julianne's job being an events planner, there were lots of little details like the types of flowers in the displays and food being served, touches I really enjoyed.
The story built up to a satisfactory conclusion and I've just seen there is a sequel - A Christmas in Cornwall - perfect for this time of year.
I recommend A Wedding in Cornwall to those who enjoy a light romance story and who like a quick read.
The story takes place on the majestic cliffs of the Cornwall countryside and is truly a love letter to the rugged landscape, delicious food, and beautiful flora found there.
The writing is remarkably descriptive. The plot is well-developed, with a good mix of drama and romantic tension. And the characters are intriguing, likeable, and incredibly charming.
Overall this is an adorable, quick, easy read that is perfect for the beach or a sunny afternoon.
Thank you to Laura Briggs, the author, for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.
A WEDDING IN CORNWALL by Laura Briggs is a delightful, light read, that is perfect for your lunch break or on the beach. Even though this book is short, nothing about the story is lost. With rich imagery, Cornwall comes alive and this story has a light, romantic feel that will make you smile. Julianne is determined, caring, and sweet, while Matthew has reasons for his gruff exterior. All in all A WEDDING IN CORNWALL by Laura Briggs is a sweet story and I look forward to the next in the series.
