Reviews for White Wedding
I really enjoyed all the previous Milly Johnson books that I've read so I was looking forward to reading this one which is her latest novel.
I loved the idea that these three women, who had never met before, came together in a bridal shop and ended up forging a really close, strong friendship. This friendship was very natural and, at times, comforting which made me feel that fate had brought them all together.
I really liked all the main characters, Max was so enthusiastic and I loved that because it was very entertaining to read, she was a strong character who knew just what she wanted and how to get it.
I felt incredibly sad for Violet - just reading about her life made me feel like a bird trapped in a cage. I loved her vision for the ice-cream parlour and as it was all coming together I found myself wanting to go there, to experience the delicious-sounding ice-cream she was making. She had a lovely Nan who I really took to because she reminded me of people in my own life, one part that I particularly enjoyed and giggled at was the bottle opener incident so look out for that if you read it!
Bel was a fun, cheeky character and I had a feeling she was up to something, I had a little guess at what that might be and was pleased to find out that I was right! What ensued was entertaining and explosive so keep an eye out for that part too! I also thoroughly enjoyed the time she spent in her family's cottage, it was funny and I felt like it helped me understand her better.
There were many things in this book that had me laughing out loud and a few moments that made me feel very sad, sometimes I did find it a little bit predictable but that didn't affect my enjoyment of the book in the slightest. Actually there were a couple of big shocks towards the end that I really hadn't seen coming so it wasn't all predictable.
Had I not already been married I think I probably would've felt very nervous about the whole idea after reading this book, this might be worth considering if you are planning a wedding yourself!
This is a fun and, at the same time, emotional book that I really enjoyed. by Kate Verrier
