Lovely community drama and romance – A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds by Lucy Coleman

What could be more festive than a winter wedding in the picturesque English countryside? Join us for Christmas in the Cotswolds with the bestselling Lucy Coleman.

Imogen Tolliman and Gray Adams can’t wait to get married after getting engaged the previous year, when they were stranded by snow in a blizzard. Now they are busy planning their wedding, but when the date slips six months because Gray is working on a huge film project, it seems like fate that after their snowy start, they will end up getting married at Christmas.

The couple are living in Immi’s grandfather’s picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage at the Aysbury marina in the Cotswolds, which they are renovating to become their forever family home. As well as building work, full-time jobs and wedding planning, Immi is in charge of raising money to build a children’s playground, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Santa Ahoy Cruises – her grandfather Tollie’s life work.

When Gray is suddenly forced to travel abroad, Immi is left to cope with everything alone, and before long, even the best-laid plans start to wobble. When a terrible betrayal is uncovered, the whole community of Aysbury is left reeling, and Immi is left wondering if there will be a wedding after all…

Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to an unforgettable Cotswolds Christmas full of romance and laughter, friendship and family and much-loved festive traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.

My Review:

Thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this lovely book, here's my honest review:

Escape to the Cotswolds in this delightful read
To the fantastic Aysbury community helping others in need.
The story takes place over a very special year during which
Imogen Tolliman and Gray Adams plan just how and when they'll get hitched!

The story has lots of different threads with Immi and Gray at the heart
And folks around the canal and marina all taking part.
They're raising money for a children's playground to be made
But can they make enough before the money has to be paid?

Wedding planning is definitely not Immi's dream
But she learns to delegate to a lovely team
With help from friends and relations, too
Maybe she'll have her dream wedding come true?

With Gray's job involving him working away
And Immi really wishing at home he could stay
There will be pressures galore as the wedding day nears
Let's hope all goes well and there'll only be happy tears.

This is a story with plenty of community spirit and drama,
With Immi at the centre, trying to stay calmer!
Will they raise the funds they need? Will the new romances grow?
Read this entertaining book for yourself and then you will know!
