Rating: 4/5

A torrential blizzard results in an mismatched group staying in an isolated Scottish castle! Now two of them, Natalie and Rhys, were due to be there visiting their friends Tarquin and Wren but they, very kindly, offered a lift to Natalie’s ex, the rock star Dominic and his fiancé Gemma. Then the blizzard results in Helen’s car skidding off the road, necessitating her joining the castle crowd. Throw in the fact that Gemma has turned into Bridezilla, that she and Dom are trying to get married away from the paparazzi and that Helen is secretly a journalist for one of the most notorious publications and with the past coming back to roost and you’ve a recipe for misunderstandings, misgivings and mischief! You still need to add Tarquin’s sister, parents and grandmother to the mix, along with a taciturn gatekeeper and the Bridezilla with all her demands and this can only result in a great story. Will Gemma manage to get the wedding of her dreams, complete with Prada wedding dress or will the snowy blizzards make this wedding a total whiteout?

The story isn’t only about the potential bride and groom but also explores the relationships of others in the castle area, with pregnancies, problems and the past all thrown in for good measure. There are secrets to uncover and hearts to be healed as well as romances to bloom in this delightful story filled with lots of twists, turns and obstacles along the way. Get out your skis, this is going to be one heck of a slalom ride to the conclusion!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
