Books on Tour 9th October 2021
Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for Tilly Tennant’s new release, My Best Friend’s Wedding. Thanks to Noelle Holten at Bookouture for inviting me, I’m delighted to be part of it.
Another absolutely yummy book by Tilly Tennant, her books grab me straight away and I just couldn’t stop reading. I can feel the Christmas spirit coming already!
After a rubbish six months, suit shop worker Libby is to be chief bridesmaid at her best friend Willow’s wedding.
Before the wedding we get to find out why the six months have been rubbish, namely ex-fiancé Rufus dumping her. Libby’s big worry is that he will turn up as a wedding guest, as he was originally invited as Libby’s partner. She is obsessive about everything and needs to be in control, so when Rufus does turn up she can’t cope. She should just ignore him after what he did, but she still keeps an eye on him around the wedding reception.
During the reception Libby catches the eye of a handsome man, Noah, an old friend of Tomas the groom. As the day progresses the snow falls, which makes the Christmas Eve wedding feel extra special, and guests start to worry they won’t get home. As the snow continues to fall heavily, the roads are impassable and there is a power cut. The party carries on in the candlelight. The little bridesmaids who Libby christened the ‘trio of torment’ added a lot of comedy moments to the story, dancing and playing in the snow in their posh dresses. Noah and Libby kept the trio entertained while they got to know more about each other. They get chatting and are actually a perfect match.
Everything was on the same set, so I could really imagine the lovely stately home of Lovage Hall.
Lighthearted and easy to read, certainly a wedding and Christmas Day to remember.
A very sweet story which I devoured on holiday. It drew me in and I couldn’t put it down.
I thoroughly recommend it.
Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the review copy in which I give my honest opinion.

About the book
Falling snow, sparkling champagne and an ex that Libby would rather forget…
Everything was in place for Libby’s own wedding day – the ancient church with roses around the door, the frothy white wedding dress of her dreams… That is until her Mr Right, Rufus, turned out to be Mr Wrong and dumped her out of the blue. For her cousin.
Six months later, Libby is the chief bridesmaid for her best friend Willow in a Christmas Eve wedding at stately home Lovage Hall. Despite having to wear an enormous fuchsia dress, Libby knows she has to look her best, as the wedding is the first time she will see Rufus again…
As the guests sip champagne at the beautiful reception, and Libby does her best to avoid her ex, the snow outside falls faster and faster, making it impossible for the guests to leave. Snowed in at Lovage Hall, Libby is charmed by American Noah with his dark cropped hair and dimpled cheeks, and the two of them share their dreams and a very passionate kiss.
But when the morning comes, and the snow melts, a shocking revelation about Noah comes to light and Rufus reveals a devastating secret. Can Libby trust her heart to make the right decision for her own happy ending?
A gorgeous, romantic heart-warming read with characters that will find their way into your heart and stay there. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Shari Low and Jenny Colgan.
Meet the Author
From a young age, Tilly Tennant was convinced that she was destined for the stage. Once she realised she wasn’t actually very good at anything that would put her on the stage, she started to write stories instead. There were lots of terrible ones, like The Pet Rescue Gang (aged eight), which definitely should not see the light of day ever again. Thankfully, her debut novel, Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was not one of those, and since it hit the Amazon best seller lists she hasn’t looked back. Born in Dorset, she currently lives in Staffordshire with her husband, two daughters, three guitars, four ukuleles, two violins and a kazoo.
I am also very happy to call her my friend ❤
