Just For Fun!!

As a special treat for being a part of the blog tour, I can share a few fun pictures with you throughout this review in honour of the beautiful Christmas read that is; Christmas Wedding at the Gingerbread café, by the beautiful author, Rebecca Raisin, whom I am honoured to call my friend xx





THE BLURB:

You are invited to the wedding of the year!
Snow is falling thick and fast outside the Gingerbread Café and inside, its owner Lily is planning the wedding of the year. Her wedding! She never dreamt it would happen, but this Christmas, she’ll be marrying the man of her dreams - in a Christmas-card-perfect ceremony!

The gingerbread is baking, the dress is fitted and the mistletoe’s in place – for once, everything’s going to plan. That is until her mother-in-law arrives... Suddenly, Lily’s famous cool is being tested like never before and her dream wedding is crumbling before her eyes.

In the blink of a fairylight, the Gingerbread Café has been thrown into chaos! Lily thought she had this wedding wrapped up, but with so much to do before she says ‘I do’, can Lily get to the church on time – and make this Christmas sparkle after all?

MY OPINION:



When the final instalment hit my kindle fire, I was eager to read it and catch up with Lily, Damon, Charlie and of course the bubbly and delightful CeeCee.

As with any wedding, as brides everywhere will know, chaos is usually not too far behind the wedding planning. But if Lily is taking it all in her stride.... and Damon is eager for the wedding day to arrive, who could possibly take on the role of Bridezilla?




As the wedding day approaches, the cake of perfection, becomes the cake of demolition much to Lily's sadness, and CeeCee is not her usual self.... the in-laws arrive and whilst Damon's Dad loves Lily to pieces, more than that can be said for his Mother, but if Lily confronts Damon about her meddling, who will he believe? Will the wedding still go ahead?


It seems that even though Christmas is approaching, there is a dark cloud handing over Ashford, as the residents prepare to say goodbye to a much loved resident as she battles Cancer. What I can say is that the scenes involving much loved Janey, moved me to tears more than once.



In fact, I found myself blubbing a lot reading this beautiful book, much to Rebecca's credit for her brilliant writing talent. The characters warm your heart and become a part of your life in ways that you never knew they could. Just today I was shopping and came across Gingerbread cutters, and wondered just how much Lily would have loved them for her café. Ashford is a fictional home from home, a village to escape to, the place to go on literary holiday, but you never want to leave.
