Two weddings and a baby…but who will get their happy ever after?

So when a wedding invite arrives from her oldest friend, Beth Williams, Emily is thrilled. Not only will she get to return to her childhood home in Scotland, but best of all – Beth wants her to bake the wedding cake!
However, her excitement is cut short when she discovers that Greg has cheated on her. Devastated by his betrayal, Emily flees to Glendale Hall, Beth’s grand estate in the Highlands, and tries to distracts herself with helping with the wedding plans, but that’s not easy when Greg keeps hounding her to forgive him. Then she’s introduced to Glendale’s new young and handsome vicar Brodie, and things become even more complicated.

Escape to Scotland and fall in love with this gorgeous and inspiring romance from the bestselling author of Coming Home to Glendale Hall! The perfect feel-good read for fans of Holly Martin, Heidi Swain, and Jill Mansell.
Emily Prescott cannot wait to attend her oldest friends wedding in Scotland. She is excited to return to the village she grew up in, and she cannot wait to introduce her boyfriend Greg to her friends.
In the weeks before they are due to leave, Emily discovers that Greg has cheated on her. Distraught, she leaves immediately, seeking refuge at Glendale Hall. She throws herself into helping Beth with the wedding and planning a beautiful cake for the happy couple. Her life becomes even more complicated when she is introduced to the young and handsome new vicar in Glendale, Brodie. However, as Greg’s betrayal deepens, Emily finds herself alone facing the most unexpected life decisions.
Full disclosure – I have not read Coming Home to Glendale Hall. But now I will! Having not read Coming Home to Glendale Hall though I can confirm that it is not necessary in order to enjoy this novel because I loved it! It was easy to read, but packed full of likeable characters. Glendale was the perfect setting, it was the kind of friendly village that makes you really want to live there. There are very few surprises in this novel, but that isn’t why I chose to read it. As far as chick-lit goes, this one is definitely up there! This is an ideal read for a Sunday afternoon with a hot chocolate and piles of cake!
