Christmas arrives at Brides by the Sea, Cornwall’s enchanting and most adorable little wedding shop.

There’s nothing more magical than a winter wonderland wedding, and the girls are determined to make this festive season their most romantic yet.

The champagne is on ice while the mistletoe is hanging from every nook, and the exquisite lace and pearl-encrusted dresses, glistening like the frosted shop windows, are waiting to be chosen.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and romance is most definitely in the crisp winter air- with promises, proposals and Christmas kisses aplenty…

What will the season bring, in this enchanting fourth book of ‘The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea’ series?

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this novel.  All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

Christmas Promises at the Little Wedding Shop is the fourth book in The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea series.  Each book can be enjoyed as a standalone but to fully appreciate the back history I would whole heartedly recommend reading all books in the series.  The books in the series are:

  • The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea
  • Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop
  • Summer at the Little Wedding Shop
  • Christmas Promises at the Little Wedding Shop

I have been totally captivated and swept away by this contemporary romcom series by author Jane Linfoot.  The setting of a book series around a wedding shop located on the Cornish coast with it’s rugged and stunning vista ever changing with the seasons is so idyllic.  Readers are treated each time they open up any of the books in this series to a cast of warm hearted characters with female leads you want to be best friends with and I’m sure as each book is published the male leads get more adorable.

This story focuses on Holly who is returning to her hometown for the festive period to take photos for her friend’s wedding, which so happens to be taking place on the very beach besides the wedding shop.  Since fleeing from her surprise proposal almost a year ago Holly has been determined to avoid Christmas at all costs to help her get over her break-up from Luc.  However, as she promised to help at her friend’s wedding she has no choice and feels that she can just about manage with one wedding at Christmas.  However, St Aidan and The Wedding Shop are gearing up for a festive period filled with fun, love and lots of weddings.  The Wedding Shop’s regular photographer Jules has unfortunately had to pull out of taking the photos for the forthcoming Christmas weddings.  Emergency reinforcements are needed and the Wedding Shop team look to Holly to help out.  Holly’s self-esteem since the break-up is very low however, she has the help of local beer and wine merchant Rory on hand to help.  Rory also so happens to be her nemesis.  They connected when they were at school, very often Rory would tease Holly but secretly she enjoyed his companionship.

Both Holly and Rory have suffered heartache as a child.  However, Rory was very clever to hide his true emotions and he came across as the village rebel.  When you first read about Rory you can’t help but fall for his cheeky charm but when you see his true persona emerge there is a little vulnerability about him.  The introduction of two of the cutest characters, Gracie and Teddie, also help bring out more layers in Rory’s characters.  There are definitely some gorgeous ahhh moments.

Can two people with a shared mutual affinity of a loss still so sorely felt help each other to find the strength in themselves to tackle their fears?

Another beautiful, charming romance from Jane Linfoot.
