My Big Fat Christmas Wedding - by Samantha Tonge

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Things don’t always run smoothly in the game of love…

As her Christmas wedding approaches, a trip back to snowy England for her ex’s engagement party makes her wonder if those are wedding bells she’s hearing in her mind, or warning bells. She longs for the excitement of her old London life – the glamour, the regular pedicures. Can she really give that all up to be…a fishwife?
There’s nothing for it but to throw herself into bringing a little Christmas magic to the struggling village in the form of a Christmas fair. Somewhere in amidst the sparkly bauble cakes and stollen scones, she’s sure she’ll come to the right decision about where she belongs…hopefully in time for the wedding…

My Big Fat Christmas Wedding is the standalone sequel to Game of Thrones, perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk and Debbie Johnson. Don’t miss the Christmas Wedding of the year!

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

My Big Fat Christmas Wedding brings us back to Pippa and Niko, who we know already from Game of Scones. It can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading Game of Scones, because it’s the start oft he story and it makes you understand certain things better.

So, we are in Taxos with Pippa and Niko. The are enjoying their life there and they are about to get married. A trip to England changes everything. They are invited to her ex’s engagement party in London. Pippa is back in London, so close to her old life, she enjoys being around old work colleagues and in this festive London atmosphere. At the party Niko feels left alone and in the wrong place. After a heated argument, Niko rushes back to Greece!

After spending time with Henrik and Olivia Pippa goes home with their booked flight and finds everything tob e in chaos. It’s a storm, there are refugees and Niko cannot be found. When he is found and in hospital, he still wants to cancelt he wedding. They question now was, if the wedding was still on. For Pippa that time was a journey if figuring out what she really wants in live and where she will be happy.

I loved how passionate and excited Pippa was with her new projects. She put all her heart in them and it also opened her eyes to what she really needs in life.

The atmosphere in Taxos around Chritmas is great and Niko’s family is just adorable. There were many wonderful moments in this book and I think it transports a great message.
