Book 18 in my Goodreads Reading Challenge is A Vintage Wedding by Katie Fforde.
‘In a small Cotswold country town, Beth, Lindy and Rachel are looking for new beginnings.
So they set up in business, organising stylish and perfectly affordable vintage weddings.
Soon they are busy arranging other people’s Big Days.
What none of them know is that their own romances lie waiting, just around the corner…’ (Thanks Amazon!)
Beth, Lindy and Rachel are three very different women who are thrown together in the small village of Chippingford.
Beth has recently finished university, and finds herself in the village of Chippingford with the mammoth task of arranging her sisters wedding on a very small budget, whilst seeking some form of employment to enable her live more comfortably (and to stop accepting money from her Dad).
Lindy is a divorced mother of two, and a whizz on the sewing machine. However, with a three and six year old, she has struggled making time to see friends and as a result has become quite lonely.
Rachel is a little older than Beth and Lindy, and definitely more cynical when it comes to matters of the heart. She is efficient and organised in every way (useful, given that she is an accountant), with a touch of OCD thrown in for good measure.
Together the three of them form both a friendship and a business, as they create Vintage Weddings, not only to organise Beth’s sister Helena’s wedding but others too. Like any good chick lit, we have some romance thrown in for good measure, as the girls get to know Angus, Raff and Finn.
As chick lits go, A Vintage Wedding has the right mix of love, friendship and drama. It’s a great, easy read – perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon with a cheeky glass of wine! Give it a go!
