The third book in the bestselling series, ‘The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea’.
When the owner of Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s cutest little wedding shop, offers Lily a job as their new wedding stylist, her first thought is – can she possibly pull it off?
Before she’s even sourced a fairy light or tasted a cupcake, Kip Penryn hires her services – but he’s opened an exclusive wedding venue in direct competition to her friend Poppy!
Lily feels like a traitor working for Kip, only everyone knows Penryn men are gorgeous but unreliable. All she has to do is sit back and watch him mess it up…doesn’t she?
Love is in the Cornish sea breeze this summer as the girls tackle their busiest wedding season yet. There’s plenty of bunting, bubbly and baking – but who is going to catch the bouquet?
This is the third and final book in The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea series. Each book can be read as a standalone but to fully appreciate all the characters and the storyline setting I would recommend reading them all in order as follows:
- The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea (you can find my review here)
- Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop (you can find my review here)
- Summer at the Little Wedding Shop
Jane Linfoot has created the most delightful and delicious book series. I have simply fallen in love with the characters in each story and have drooled over the delicious sounding cakes that Poppy makes. The stories leave you with a warm glow of happiness, hope and belief. You want to grab the creativity, spark, charisma and love from each individual character and bottle it up to be released when you are in need of book comfort.
This story focuses on Lily, whose left with no self-confidence and her belief in marriage is non-existent following her failed marriage. However, she’s returned to the Brides by the Sea shop in St Aiden’s Bay, Cornwall, her former workplace as a florist, to attend the wedding of one of her friends and former colleagues.
Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day with loved up couples proposing live on air on the local radio station. Lily gets a shock when she listens to one of the happy couples; her own mother has just been proposed to! Lily is furious and upset, her father died years ago but she is still devastated to hear her mother is moving on.
Lily loves being back with her friends at the wedding and her own woes of being single and now jobless are pushed to the back of her mind. Lily soon catches the attention of two men; Fred a local builder and Kip one of the Penryn boys who she remembers from her childhood when the Penryn brothers spent each summer at their uncles’s mansion. The Penryns were known as bad boys, unreliable with love them and leave them attitudes. Kip was now living at his uncle’s mansion turning it into a wedding venue in direct opposition to her best friend Poppy’s venue of weddings at the farm with Rafe.
Lily if offered work as a stylist at the bridal emporium and she is soon in demand with weddings planned at both local venues. With wedding wars amongst the brides to be and venue proprietors life gets a little complicated for Lily as she’s left working for both teams. With mishaps and major bridezilla demands Lily and the girls at Brides by the Sea have just a few months to prepare and organise weddings for the summer season including their friend Immie and Lily’s mother.
This was such a gorgeously fun story. I’d highly recommend this book series for all that love heart warming stories with lots of love and laughter. The whole series read back to back would be a fantastic holiday treat.
