A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds
What could be more festive than a winter wedding in the picturesque English countryside? Join us for Christmas in the Cotswolds with the bestselling Lucy Coleman.
Imogen Tolliman and Gray Adams can’t wait to get married after getting engaged the previous year, when they were stranded by snow in a blizzard. Now they are busy planning their wedding, but when the date slips six months because Gray is working on a huge film project, it seems like fate that after their snowy start, they will end up getting married at Christmas.
The couple are living in Immi’s grandfather’s picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage at the Aysbury marina in the Cotswolds, which they are renovating to become their forever family home. As well as building work, full-time jobs and wedding planning, Immi is in charge of raising money to build a children’s playground, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Santa Ahoy Cruises – her grandfather Tollie’s life work.
When Gray is suddenly forced to travel abroad, Immi is left to cope with everything alone, and before long, even the best-laid plans start to wobble. When a terrible betrayal is uncovered, the whole community of Aysbury is left reeling, and Immi is left wondering if there will be a wedding after all…
Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to an unforgettable Cotswolds Christmas full of romance and laughter, friendship and family and much-loved festive traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.
Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources, Boldwood Books, and Lucy Coleman for inviting me on this tour.
A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds by Lucy Coleman is a delightful look at small-town life with lively characters and a lovely story. It’s not a series book, however, A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds would be better if read after Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage, as it’s a continuation of that story.
A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds has Immi and Grey working on getting married at Christmastime. They’ve been engaged for a year after Grey’s proposal in a snowstorm last Christmas. But, Christmas is a busy time for Immi, as she also helps with her Grandfathers, Santa Ahoy Cruises, she’s fundraising and project managing the new playground for the village as well as renovating their new home, the Lock Keepers Cottage. Plus she’s dealing with her fiance’s work schedule. He has to work in London, and she only gets to see him on weekends, for now.
This is a sweet, charming tale set in a gorgeous location in the Cotswold. I loved the descriptions of the canals and the longboats and the longboat tours. I also enjoyed the sense of community and how everyone helps everyone else out and they all work together to make the community stronger.
Although a Christmas story, the book starts out in the heat of summer and progresses through fall to Christmas. I like that it’s a holiday story, but we’re not hit over the head with Christmas, but instead, just get a general feel for the holiday at the end of the book that was very satisfying. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a sweet holiday story set in a delightful small village. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
