Career minded, Natalie Spencer, had never been in love. She could never understand what all the fuss was about. But when she met Jackson Humphries during Fresher’s Week at university, that all changed. 

Utterly infatuated, Natalie quickly discovers the meaning of love and, before she knows it, she's heading up the aisle – for the first time, that is. 

This is a tale about four wedding dresses, a runaway groom and a girl who got so carried away, she couldn’t see true love staring her right in the face. 

Natalie's Getting Married, was just what I needed as I read it. It was light hearted, good fun and a great romantic comedy.  Rosa Temple is  writing with a fresh voice, that is very friendly and easy to get along with and warm to. 

Natalie is clearly a romantic. She falls in love very easily and is then blinkered to the man's faults, and is determined that whoever he is will be her happy ever after. It soon becomes apparent that she is blinkered to who is her real man of her dreams, but before we get there, we have three other weddings (not all Natalie's), a sprinkling of men and their relationships with our lead female, and lots of fun in between. 

The book is split into three parts, each of them ending in the same way, with a wedding. They are to signify the differing chapters in Natalie's life as she tries to keep reinventing herself. Every chapter moves the story along in time, and the whole book is set throughout the Nineties. 

I knew who I was hoping Natalie would end up with, and did at times get frustrated that neither character had the guts to say what was clear to the observer. 

Natalie's Getting Married is a sweet romance, that will had me smiling the whole way through. I found it to be a pleasant, reasonable length story (not too long, not overly short), and was entertained throughout. 

Thank you to Rosa Temple for the review copy of this book. This was my honest opinion.
