I can safely say that Milly Johnson has done it again. She’s written yet another class act book which will keep you guessing from start to finish, and keep you on the edge of your seat. This 5* story revolves around three young women who meet at the White Wedding store, all on the lookout for things that they hope will make their day 100% perfect. Bel is heir to a chocolate dynasty and is all set to marry the charming and wonderful Richard, who seems to be to good to be true. But when Bel discovers some of Richard’s dirty secrets, she may have to rethink her original plans.

White Wedding

Violet is engaged to agoraphobic Glyn, who spends his days doing nothing but watching TV, cooking and cleaning. Violet was never really in love with Glyn, but felt emotionally blackmailed into getting engaged to keep him happy. Rather than being excited about her upcoming nuptials, Violet is simply going through the motions. Instead, she is throwing herself into her new ice cream parlour and the extremely dishy young guy she is paying to help her decorate the place.Max and Stuart have been together for seventeen years, and seem like the perfect couple. For both of them though, getting married is more of a formality than a romantic occasion. They have both decided on a low key wedding with no extravagant add ons, but when Max watches My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, the words ‘simple’ and ‘no fuss’ go straight out of the window.

Whether you’re looking for a light hearted read that will get you laughing your socks off, or something just to pass the time, White Wedding is the book for you. Filled with likeable characters and realistic situations, it’s sure to become one of your favourites
