Review of Marrying Mr Valentine
Nadine Roberts smiles for everyone, but beneath it she hides a heartbreaking past that only a few know about. Throwing herself into her new career; wedding planner at The Duck & Goose, a property recently purchased by newlyweds Florence and Hugh, has helped distract her from her loneliness.
When a teary bride suddenly cancels her upcoming wedding Nadine looks to the two year waiting list. Clara Blumenkrantz and Hartley Valentine. It’ll have to be a quick turnaround, but what’s the worst that can happen, right?
This should be like every other wedding she plans, but the magnetism she feels towards Mr Valentine disrupts the orderly life she’s worked hard to carve out.
Can she ignore her intense desires and be a professional? Or will she open up her heart to the one person that has the power to break it? And in doing so endanger not just her job, but her venue’s reputation?
Laura Barnard lives in Hertfordshire, UK and writes romantic comedy or ‘chick lit’ as its so often described. In her spare time she enjoys drinking her body weight in tea, indulging in cupcakes the size of her face and drooling over hunks like Jamie Dornan, Ryan Gosling and Leo Dicaprio.
She enjoys wearing yoga pants and reading fitness magazines while sitting on the sofa eating chocolate. She’s a real fan of the power nap and of course READING!
She writes not to get rich or famous, but because she LOVES writing. Even if one person tells her they enjoyed her book it makes the midnight typing worth it!
I was offered an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 4 Golden apples .
I’m seriously hooked on anything written by Laura Barnard and have read all her books now! The writing style flows so easily again in this book and its full of wit, heartbreak and gives you bags of emotions.
An Adventurous Proposal was the book before this and the story continues in Marrying Mr Valentine, withs Flo’s best friend Nadine as the lead lady. This can be read as a stand alone.
Nadine Roberts is a wedding planner who always on the go but is hiding away her own pain. Along comes Clara, now I really didn’t like this character and I was often tutting at her actions! Nadine accepts to plan her wedding then she meets the groom to be…Hartley Valentine. Nadine struggles to hide her feeling for Hartley while all the time trying her hardest to be professional.
I loved this story. I connected with all the characters, It was fast-paced and easy reading.
Another fantastic book from Laura Barnard and a must read.
