But life in Cornwall isn't exactly as Julianne imagined it. Her first bride-to-be is a resentful, petted snob, the groom is immature and bored, and the Cornish staff of Cliffs House has a difficult time believing that an event planner from a mid-level position can handle a wedding this big. And then there's a personal matter -- the handsome, sometimes charming, sometimes standoffish gardener Matthew Rose. He and Julianne have a strangely complicated relationship somewhere between friendship and attraction. But with a secret in his past, and a scheming bridesmaid plotting to have Matthew all to herself, will Julianne find a way to untangle her feelings and the problems of planning a perfect Cornish wedding?
Clare's Review 4 of 5 starsI was excited to read this novella after reading the blurb, a sweet young American with a thirst to prove herself and where better to do but in Cornwall, England.
Julianne is warm and friendly from the beginning and sometimes comes across as a bit naïve although I found this makes her more likeable! Her character and her feelings are very relatable and she has a strong steady storyline throughout the novel.
I also found the story as a whole to be a nice, easy read and would love to read more from this author in the future.
The initial feeling from this story is that Julianne is going to get into lots of trouble and that the bride is going to be extremely difficult although I don’t feel that this was really the case, however if the story had been longer there would have been room for more drama. This was my only really negative about this beautiful little story.
