Today I bring you a review for the book A Vicarage Wedding by Kate Hewitt. Thank you to Kate and Jenny from Neverland Book Tours for inviting me to take part.
Rachel Holley has always dreamed of a wedding—the white dress, the fairy tale, and of course, the happily-ever-after. But when her fiancé breaks it off the night before, claiming she doesn’t love him, Rachel’s fairy tale ends in ashes.
Homeless, hopeless, and feeling like her life has been completely derailed, Rachel must start over in all sorts of ways—and hold her head up high in the fishbowl of her tiny village. The last person she expects to become a friend is Sam West, the taciturn owner of The Bell, Thornthwaite’s rougher pub, and a little rough around the edges of himself.
But as Rachel gets to know Sam, and sees him caring for his orphaned nephew, she finds herself drawn to this enigmatic man. Nothing about Sam is what Rachel expected in a life partner, and yet she can’t deny their increasing closeness. But can love flourish on the rebound? And will there be a vicarage wedding after all?
This is the 3rd Book in The Holley Sisters of Thornthewaite series. I have read the first one in the series and am happy to be back for the 3rd (not sure how I missed the 2nd one, but it doesn’t effect the storyline).
I love the way Kate writes and draws us into the world she creates and makes us care for the characters she establishes. I’ve read a few different series by this author now and I am never disappointed in how much I enjoy them all.
This book is such an easy and enjoyable read. Perfect for a lazy day to just let your mind flow with.
There are a few little twists which make the book unpredictable and without giving any spoilers it ends in a great way.
The characters are so well written and each brings something totally unique to to the story.
I would 100% recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little romance in their lives.
A solid 4.5 stars from me:)
