Where’s a Fairy Godmother when you need one?

If you won a fairy-tale wedding in a luxury hotel, you’d be delighted – right? But what if you didn’t have anyone to marry? Cat Aston did have a fiancé, but now it looks like her Prince Charming has done a runner.

Adam Lawley was left devastated when his girlfriend turned down his heartfelt proposal. He’s made a vow never to fall in love again.

So – when Cat and Adam meet, they shouldn’t even consider falling in love. After all, they’re both broken hearted. But for some reason they can’t stop thinking about each other. Is this their second chance for happiness, or are some things just too good to be true?

The Wedding Diary is book 4 in the Charton Minster Series (The Silver Locket, The Golden Chain, The Penny Bangle and Magic Sometimes Happens).

Available in paperback in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Dubai and most English speaking countries plus online bookstores. Ebooks available on all the major platforms.

    Coffee Time Romance & MoreThis book tickles my toes and warms my heart. You will want to get a warm cup of chocolate and some nice tasty cookies or wafers to enjoy while reading this wonderful tale. Having such illustrative words gives you the total picture of what is going on as the plot thickens in all the right spots. This book naturally leads you in the direction your heart yearns to go. It has enough conflict to remind you that even characters’ lives have chaos, which is not always so easy to figure out. It is realistic yet very much like a fairytale. A movie, audio book and most definitely a sequel would be welcomed as it is rich with memorable events and makes you smile with understanding. The cover is very indicative of the story…magical.

    In this wildly passionate, touching and sometimes funny story, James portrays two brokenhearted souls who connect and magically find a way to love again. Most of the book has an offbeat, almost fairy-tale feel, but it’s uplifting and satisfying. James spins her story with hope in mind, and her characters help us believe in castles in the air without equivocation.

    …I love this story, because it made me feel good all around. So if you like well written, funny, happy and feel good romances, go grab this one.

    The writing is also great. The story was written from third person POV, but it follows simultaneously Cat’s and Adam’s story, so that reader knows what is going on with both of them. The story flows smoothly, all ends are tied up and the hero and heroine’s HEA is believable. Furthermore the descriptions are so well written that I felt like I was in London, England countryside and Toscana while reading this story.

    So if you like well written, funny, happy and feel good romances, go grab this one.
