It’s the career move of a lifetime, and Julianne can’t believe it’s hers: a position as an event planner at a country house in Cornwall, England, beginning with the wedding of a celebrity! If her old firm’s senior planner back in the States hadn’t fallen suddenly sick with the chicken pox, Julianne would never have found herself chosen for a life in one of England’s most beautiful coastal counties, surrounded by rugged shores, quaint cottages, elegant gardens and a house to die for.
But life in Cornwall isn’t exactly as Julianne imagined it. Her first bride-to-be is a resentful, petted snob, the groom is immature and bored, and the Cornish staff of Cliffs House has a difficult time believing that an event planner from a mid-level position can handle a wedding this big. And then there’s a personal matter — the handsome, sometimes charming, sometimes standoffish gardener Matthew Rose. He and Julianne have a strangely complicated relationship somewhere between friendship and attraction. But with a secret in his past, and a scheming bridesmaid plotting to have Matthew all to herself, will Julianne find a way to untangle her feelings and the problems of planning a perfect Cornish wedding?
This is the first part of a series, each part is novella length. To be completely honest I was surprised I hadn’t heard or read anything by this author yet, and I absolutely hope she has some full length novels out. Saying that, I also enjoyed the way she managed to pack everything into such a short read and leave readers feeling as if they had read a full length story.
Julianne just can’t believe her luck. She has landed a great job as a wedding planner all the way over the ocean in Cornwall, despite not being exactly qualified for said job. So it’s hop on the plane and wing it time.
Her first job is making wedding wishes come true for a celebrity couple, an obnoxious bride and a groom who thinks the suns rises and sets in his own aura. Sounds simple, however there are a few mishaps along the way. One of those mishaps happens to be a very handsome, but very grumpy gardener.
I loved the attention to detail when it came to the flora and food, especially the flora. The research and extra detail was remarkable for what is considered an easy read. It took the whole story up a notch.
It’s a contemporary romance, a feel good read for every occasion. Briggs is definitely an author who deserves a place at the romance and contemporary fiction table.
