I’m thrilled to share my review for this gorgeous summertime read by Daisy James, a new author to me. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for a digital proof copy so that I can read and review for the upcoming blog tour. My thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift.
It’s Summertime at The Cornish Confetti Agency!
When Lexie Harrington is asked to co-ordinate Kat and Dylan’s ‘English village fête’ wedding, she’s determined that this time everything will go according to her carefully laid plans; no ice bucket challenges, no whoopee cushions, and absolutely no googly eyes attached to everything in sight!
With gorgeous journalist-cum-wedding columnist Theo Barker to offer a helping hand, Lexie is optimistic that she can deliver the fairy tale wedding her clients have always dreamed of…. until the best man Noah is targeted by a loose hosepipe, the wedding rings go walk-about, and his beloved scarlet Porsche takes on a distinctly unpleasant aroma.
Can Lexie and Theo uncover what’s behind the mysterious goings on, or will the Cornish Confetti Agency be forced to close its doors to the future brides and grooms of glorious Cornwall.
I hadn’t realised that this was the second book in a new series, the first was published in March 2020. However I quickly picked up on the events from The Cornish Confetti Agency and the blossoming friendship for Lexie and Theo.
I’ve still not visited Cornwall in person, but Daisy James brought the area to life for me. The book is set during the week of the wedding of Kat and Dylan, a very busy week for temporary wedding planner Lexie.
I loved the story – just what we need in the middle of a global pandemic to make us smile. Great characters, although some were more loveable than others, a gorgeous setting and a lovely theme for the wedding.
The story was uplifting in many ways and I loved the extreme ironing competition discussion. There are secrets to discover, mysteries to solve, new friendships to make, old issues to resolve and a wedding to prepare.
A book to enjoy with a glass of Pimm’s or with a cocktail during the summer months. I’m already looking forward to the next book – Christmas at the Cornish Confetti Agency.
Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.
When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
