Book Review: A Christmas Wedding By Paige Toon

Blurb: The short story eBook sequel to Thirteen Weddings, from bestselling author Paige Toon.

Four years ago, following that fated thirteenth wedding, Bronte fled the UK and has been happily burying her head in the sand ever since. But when an email lands in her inbox from Alex, it seems her past might be about to catch up with her right here in Sydney. Is it time for Bronte to finally face her demons?

Review: I can’t believe I’m actually finishing this review before I do Thirteen Weddings justice. I was lucky enough to meet Paige earlier this year at YALC and we spoke about me needing to catch up on Thirteen Weddings before devouring her Christmas offering. I listened to Thirteen Weddings and truly adored it, I will review it as soon as possible. I always feel like I will never do it justice. I love that I still have a fair few of Paige’s gorgeous books to devour I will enjoy every second of them.

Where do I start….I had such a mixture of emotions in both books for Alex and Lachie just like Bronte but A Christmas Wedding had me from the off. I’m so annoyed that I didn’t inhale this treat when it pinged through on release day but I will say it’s been totally worth the wait. I started reading it in between a busy day but I must admit I have enjoyed longing it out slightly.

It was great to reconnect with Bridget and all the characters from Thirteen Weddings alongside the newer characters although there were a few I weren’t fond off Fliss for one.

Paige has a way of writing emotional scenes that leave me breathless. I find myself breathing out realising I had been holding my breath momentarily.

Now I’ve read both Thirteen Weddings and a Christmas Wedding I can see why there was outrage originally. I kind of agree but I must admit I had a rollercoaster of emotions for both men in this novella. Although one came across far more gently and thoughtful than the other – and at times in Thirteen Weddings I had thought the opposite.

A gorgeous festive read that will sweep you along and take you away from you own stresses in life. It can be read alone but some references you won’t get if you haven’t read Thirteen Weddings.

Paige thank you once again for enhancing my belief in love, even though it’s elusive for me right now. Another rollercoaster read that I truly truly loved.

So Paige and Cat the final question is what Paige book next?
