Katie Fforde’s books have been welcome reads to me for many years, starting with The Rose Revived a number of years ago. Now, annually, I look forward to her latest title. Ms. Fforde writes the perfect escapist read with just enough drama, along with the promise of a happy ending. Just right for when life is just that little bit too overwhelming.
In A Vintage Wedding, three women living in the same small village meet and form a business together. Vintage Weddings will hopefully offer the perfect day while not breaking the bank in costs.
Readers follow Beth, Lindy and Rachel along with their male counterparts, family, and friends in these pages. Beth is house sitting; Lindy is a mom with chaos around her; Rachel is her opposite as the story opens-she is neat and clean and hates mess. Watch how each of them experiences life and grows over the course of the novel. It will give you a most pleasant read.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this title. All opinions are my own.

Laverne Cox is an icon to many. She has shown us how to live an authentic life. How did she come to live as her true self and to be comfortable with her identity? Young children will find out as they explore this latest, excellent entry in the ongoing series Little People, Big Dreams.
Any child who knows that their perceived sex does not mesh with their identity will be reassured by this book. It will also be a wonderful tool in teaching acceptance and respect for others. It belongs in nursery school and home libraries. Well done!
Many thanks to NetGalley and Frances Lincoln Children’s Books (Quarto Publishing Group) for this title. All opinions are my own.
