Review: 

Honestly speaking, I wasn’t expecting much from the book and I wasn’t going to write a blog review about it. But the book managed to surprise me. There is a sweet charm about it that is quite endearing.

The main reason why I loved the book is mainly because of the characterisation of Christopher as a globetrotter. It’s a role that I personally relate to because of my wanderlust and hence I loled him more and I could understand his dilemma and appeal to a homebody loke Emmy. The plot is actually quite simple and sweet with zero over-dramatisation or overhelming lust cloud. The second thing which appealed to me was the whole setting of a quaint town with a community that is involved completely without being nosy and petty. The vintage wedding planner concept was something that was quite elegant and in tune with the setting.

Considering the setting and how the series has been named, I expected the cover image to be equally quaint and contemporary, which was not in this case.

My opinion: A charming quick read that does help in refreshing your palate.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
