Fab 5* festive read – Christmas at the Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James

Looking for a fantastic festive read? Look no further!

It’s Christmas at The Cornish Confetti Agency!

When Lexie Harrington is asked to choreograph Phoebe and Sam’s Christmas-themed wedding, she can’t wait to create the perfect winter wonderland – elegantly dressed fir trees, glossy garlands of holly and mistletoe, baskets of yule logs and pine cones, and the mouth-watering fragrance of gingerbread, cinnamon sticks and warm mulled wine floating through the air.

With handsome wedding columnist-cum-fledgling scriptwriter Theo Barker at her side, she’s confident that she can create the perfect festive ambience the bride and groom have been dreaming of since their engagement in the Swiss Alps; no rampant hosepipes, no mechanical mice, no confetti-filled hairdryers.

But this is The Cornish Confetti Agency, and the words ‘plain-sailing’ and ‘hassle-free’ do not feature in the promotional brochure. So, when a much-loved portrait of the groom’s father is adorned with pirate eye-patches and black plastic moustaches, and his expensive cologne is switched for toilet cleaner, Lexie and Theo must once again don their metaphorical deerstalkers and unravel the mystery before the wedding dissolves into Christmas-themed chaos and calamity.

A perfect Christmas wedding?
Is there such a thing for The Cornish Confetti Agency?

A glittery, feel-good story perfect for the festive season, and the third book in The Cornish Confetti Agency series.

My Review:

This is a well paced, totally engaging read with great characters, lots of laughs, plenty of surprising twists and even some possible hints at a sequel to tie this series in with another one by the same author. It has a mystery with a saboteur to be identified, a wedding to organise, fun party activities, engagements, family drama, romance, snow induced chaos and even a fashion show! It is a story filled with creativity, from the festive activities at the hen and stag parties to Jasper’s beautiful waistcoats, tasty treats to stupendous wedding gowns, this story has them all so superbly described they are brought to life in the imagination of the reader. It also deals with coping with grief and loss in a sensitive manner.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story with so many different romances developing and lifelong dreams coming true. It is a story to put a huge smile on your face and definitely left me feeling good. Now I can’t wait to read more involving the Cornish Confetti Agency, Lexi, Theo, Jasper and Freya in future and wonder just what they’ll get up to next – and where!

I was so happy when I realised this book was available – I couldn’t wait to read it and it was even better than I’d hoped – and my expectations were high! This is a fabulous, festive addition to this brilliant series, a great read to escape into whenever you want an opportunity to visit Cornwall at Christmas. Having said that, I suspect it would be just as enjoyable if you read it as a standalone but the whole series is terrific and I highly recommend reading them all.

Thank you for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.

Author Bio –

Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.

When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

    Wonderful review Elaine. I have already downloaded this one from Amazon and can’t wait to get to it. I have enjoyed all in the series so far, and with a Christmas theme, I am sure I will enjoy this one as well.
