One of the great things about browsing for books online is that it’s remarkably easy to order a copy of a book by a favorite author that has not yet been published in this country. Katie Fforde’s “A Vintage Wedding,” a # 1 Sunday Times bestseller is a case in point.
For those looking for a cozy read that entertains, Katie Fforde delivers. This is the story of three youngish women living in a quiet English village, who meet at a village hall event.
“’My mum assumes because we’re almost the only people here under fifty, we’ll become friends,’ said Lindy, leading Beth through the crowd. “She means well and was so pleased when she told me she’d sold programmes to two people she didn’t know. She might have discovered oil on the village green, she was so delighted.’”
Beth – a newcomer to the village who is planning her sister’s low-budget wedding via Skype – soon bonds with single mother Lindy and divorcée Rachel to provide “vintage weddings” to couples on a budget. For them, while a vintage wedding saves tons of money, it’s not necessarily cheap. The trio works together to plan uniquely stylish weddings, while embarking on their own new romantic beginnings.
Theirs is a business of happy-ever-afters. But will they find the ones to settle down with for their own happy endings? There are, after all, three love stories in “A Vintage Wedding” – and each is told with Fforde’s signature light touch and breezy English charm.
“A Vintage Wedding” is available through amazon.com.
