The Cornish Cream Tea Wedding By Cressida McLaughlin
‘The Cornish Cream Tea Wedding’ is the fourth book in the ‘The Cornish Cream Tea’ series by Cressida McLaughlin.
Wedding planner Ellie Moon is dreaming up the most beautiful bespoke wedding for Charlie and Daniel, owners of Cornwall’s favourite cream tea bus. Even though her own life has been turned upside down and she’s had to rent out her charming Cornish cottage with its climbing roses and lavender beds, Ellie is determined to give them a day to remember. Her new tenant, handsome mechanic Jago, keeps popping up around the picture-postcard seaside village of Porthgolow. When they’re thrown together in the effort to help his elderly father get a spring back in his step, she discovers that he is full of surprises. Can romance bloom and give Ellie the fresh start she’s been wishing for?
This was the first book that I’ve read by Cressida and it truly was enjoyable and heartwarming story.
The story is seen through the perspective of Ellie, a busy wedding planner who’s organising the big wedding for power business couple Charlie and Daniel. But, whilst she’s planning the wedding of the year, she’s distracted by her handsome new lodger Jago and his turbulent relationship with his father Arthur.
I adored Ellie, she’s such a kind and warm-hearted woman. Recovering from her own divorce, she’s determined that every moment of her client’s day and the moments leading up to it are absolutely perfect and no job is neither too big or small. Jago is also a lovely character, charismatic and handsome, it’s obvious that Ellie and him have a strong attraction. I loved Rose, Ellie’s sister who was quick to speak her mind and give Ellie a gentle push in the right direction of finding love. Whilst Arthur was a grumpy character who was at his most happiest when surrounded by plants.
The setting of the story is absolutely stunning and so picturesque. Cressida’s writing is so vivid and descriptive with the wonderful insertions of the floral and horticulture of the area, that made for really lovely reading.
Even though this was the fourth book in a series, I read it as a stand-alone and it was perfect to get absorbed in. But, I do hope to read the rest of the series and meet more of the characters.
Beautifully written with engaging characters that was glorious to curl up with, ‘The Cornish Cream Tea Wedding’ was the sweetest story I’ve had the joy of reading this year.
