‘Save The Date!’ is the latest book by Allie Spencer.
Family weddings can be hell and, marooned in Italy for her cousins wedding, Ailsa can be forgiven for thinking that this one is worse than most. With the bride and groom at loggerheads and the guests in uproar, it is a million miles away from the rest and relaxation that she had been hoping for. And, then suddenly in the middle of mayhem, she comes face to face with Nick, the man she walked out on just a few months earlier. How can Ailsa help get the wedding back on track when she and Nick can’t stop arguing? But if they do, she might remember why she fell in love with him in the first place and then there really would be trouble.
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Save The Date!’, I thought it was a gloriously upbeat story that was just the perfect accompaniment to a summer evening. Filled with lovely, playful, interesting characters and hilarious scenarios, it was hard not to read this book without a smile on your face. Ailsa, the lead character in the story, is a sweetheart with a kind and caring nature. She comes to Italy for her cousin’s wedding even though a family feud has thrown the family apart, she replies to Jess’s pleas and turns up, hiding the fact that she is dealing with her own secret heartache, so she puts on a brave face to help her cousin, Jess deal with her controlling and demanding wedding planner, Veronica. Jess is a breath of fresh air in the story, with a sweet innocence about life, her and her husband Justin, see life through rose-tinted glasses which gives the story an endearing flow to it. And with the addition of Nick, Ailsa’s handsome and artistic ex and a mischievous and hyper Jack Russell who goes by the name of Arthur, who reeks havoc wherever he goes, there is plenty of fun and drama in throughout this book.
A refreshing, light and warmhearted love story, ‘Saved By The Date!’ is the perfect summer pick me up!
