Wedding bells are ringing and gossip is spiralling in Whispers Wood…

Single mum Gloria Pavey has a bad habit of saying exactly the wrong thing at the wrong time. Determined to make a positive change she can’t say no when her best friend, Emma, asks her to take on the role of her wedding planner. The only problem? Gloria’s co-planner – best man Seth Knightley.

Gloria is on a self-imposed man ban but pulling together the most beautiful wedding Whispers Wood has ever seen alongside gorgeous Seth is pushing her to her limits. As every interaction increases the tension between them Gloria finds herself wondering…could the happy ever after she never thought she’d have be in her future after all?

It was such a delight to be back in Whispers Wood, after what felt like a long gap between the releases of books 2 and 3. 

Really didn't take long to feel back at home amongst the characters, especially with the very handy character list as the start of the book - great for those new to the series, to get to know a small bit about the key players before you start - and for a returner to the series, a nice handy reminder, with enough of a hint that had me remembering. 

 This time our main character is Gloria, who we saw quite a bit of in book 2 if I recall correctly, and she was rather unlikable then, however she is on a journey to stop being a complete bitch and to embrace her own happiness, which means I really started to warm to her. 

Although she absolutely hates romance and weddings, can't see any more of that in her future, and the last thing she wants is to be named a bridesmaid at Emma's wedding, much less be in charge of wedding planning with Seth.   That is Seth, younger brother to the groom, and man that Gloria has struck up a friendship with - but is denying her true feelings for. 

It was great to catch up with Oscar, Emma, Jake, Juliet and Kate and everyone involved in the Clock Tower, and in Whispers Wood.   I'm loving how this friendship group of ladies is growing, and how Gloria fitted into it. 

I also loved Persephone, Gloria's daughter, and just how concerned she clearly is about her mum, and the purity of mother and daughter love that is inspiring Gloria to change for the better. 

I was completely and utterly in love with Seth, he is sexy,  and just wonderful, he couldn't put a foot wrong as far as I was concerned.  Certainly my latest book boyfriend, long before any romance develops in the book. 

Another lovely addition to this story, I just hope the next book doesn't take so long to appear, as I really want more!! 

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
