This is a follow on from the highly successful Just for Christmas by Scarlett Bailey however, this book can be read as a stand-alone novel but the enjoyment of the story would be enhanced even more if you’ve read Just for Christmas prior to Two Weddings and a Baby.

Product Details (as per whsmith page)
From reluctant bridesmaid, to accidental mother. Tamsyn Thorne has not been back to her home town of Poldore for five long years. But now her brother, Ruan, is about to get married and she has no excuses left. Her plans to arrive in Cornwall looking chic and successful are dashed when a huge storm turns her from fashion goddess to a drowned rat. Worse, she ends up insulting the local hunky vicar – and then finds a tiny baby abandoned in his churchyard.
This book has been on my tbr list for awhile but as soon as I started the novel it felt like home as I was revisiting the picturesque coastal town of Poldore in Cornwall. I fell in love with the town and its characters in Just for Christmas but at the start of this novel we are introduced to a new character, Tamsin Thorne. Tamsin is one of Ruan’s sisters and left the town 5 years ago to pursue a career in fashion design in Paris. Tamsin vowed never again to return to Poldore but felt obliged following the invite to her brother’s wedding and future sister-in-law’s request to be a bridesmaid. Her arrival to Poldore is greeted with the same old characters whe left behind and she soon starts to feel overwhelmed. However, bumping into the gorgeous sexy vicar unnerves her. A terrifying storm ensues and the town is soon engulfed in water and an unexpected find by Tamsin brings out emotions and feelings in her she never expected to happen.
I loved the community spirit Scarlett developed following the tragedy of the storm. Tamsin’s character at first was all designer outfits, ideas etc but we saw her personality grow. The tragedy and townsfolk had brought back feelings in her she had hidden away. Her outlook on life also took a change of direction.
This was a lovely, warm, funny, romantic story with believable characters (even the sexy vicar) and the most gorgeous, intelligent dog. A must have 5/5* read.
I’m now looking forward to visiting Poldore again with the novella Secret Santa by Scarlett Bailey.
