Katy Peacock lives a life as colourful as her name.

As a wedding photographer, she spends her days making other people smile as she captures all sorts of fun and capers at celebrations that range from the wacky to the wild.

But her own life isn’t looking quite so rosy. Her mum is acting out of character, her menacing ex is back on the scene, and she is torn between two gorgeous men. And that’s before we even get started on the trouble her sister is causing . . .

As Katy weathers the ups and downs of the season, she revisits problems from the past, discovers new friendships and finds that four weddings and a fiasco have the power to change her world beyond measure.

What an incredibly enjoyable story. Four Weddings and a Fiasco has come just in time for the summer wedding season, and it takes that idea and expands on it in an entertaining way.  And its not all light hearted either, there are a few more serious themes running through the book too, such as debt, charlatans and sisters that haven't spoken for two years. 

Katy is a wedding photographer that is trying to get her business back on track, and trying to stay clear of men too. So of course when very early in the book, she almost impales herself on a fence and then falls into a gorgeous man, that man is going to pop up more regularly in her life from that time onwards. 

And then not long after that, she meets another budding photographer, who takes a liking to her, and I'll say about him, is its also quite a memorable first meeting, while Katy is taking photo's at the "celebrity" wedding. 

Katy is a very likeable character, who is holding a grudge against her sister, for it turns out quite good reasons, she is trying to sort out her messy financial situation including paying an ex-boyfriend back and also provides a much needed ear to her many potential brides, and her best friend. 

I loved as well Katy's mum and her mum's friendship with a pair of sisters, who have in their past a story that resonates with Katy's current situation. 

Four Weddings and a Fiasco is a very easy read, I found the pages were going past so fast, I couldn't believe how fast I finished it (and I wasn't trying to rush or anything). I found I was losing track of where I was, while enjoying this story. I am enjoying Catherine Ferguson's books more and more with every release, and I hope this continues, as they are so pleasurable. 

Thank you to Helena Sheffield at Avon for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.

  1. It's an excellent location, right in the heart of the city near public transportation. The wedding venues chicago have coat hangers right at the entrance where you can leave your coat, and a lobby where you can set up some cocktail tables.
