A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan


First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret about their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.

Rosie’s older sister Katie is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself. If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…

Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiance but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived – how can she tell them she's not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget.

I have actually managed to read all of my 2020 Christmas book releases already this year for the first time ever! With the most wonderful day of the year still a week away I wasn’t ready to leave the festive books aside so I decided because I loved One More for Christmas by Sarah Morgan this year I would go back and read A Wedding in December which was her Christmas release last year which I ran out of time to read.


The White Family always come back together for a cosy traditional Christmas every year in their family home and Maggie was so excited about having her daughters’ home and had begun preparations when her youngest Rosie calls and announces she is getting married at Christmas to a man the family have never met.

Katie is determined to stop her sister’s wedding to protect her from future heartbreak but should she be worrying more about herself than her sister?

Sarah Morgan always creates such stunning and idyllic backdrops to her novels, I don’t think there is a more suited place to escape for Christmas than Snowfall lodge with the snowy treetops and dogsledding to enjoy.

In true Sarah Morgan style we have three main female leads, Maggie and her daughters Rosie and Katie. I loved all three ladies and they are all very family orientated which is lovely to see but we do see the troubles that sometimes comes when you care so much for those close to us and all we want to do is protect them which means keeping secrets which the characters felt would prevent each other from worrying about them and also shows that sometimes we need to let others make their own way in life even if they will make mistakes.

I loved the humour that Maggie and her husband Nick both to the storyline, what were rather awkward moments for them and embarrassing moments for those around them it was pure entertainment for me!

As well as romance and humour there was also a little intrigue and mystery too surrounding Katie, we know early on she has been through something devastating and with each little nugget of information that is dropped through each chapter my mind started trying to piece together what little information we had to try and work out what she had faced.

There is a festive feel to this novel with it being set at Christmas time and the characters spending but I would say it was more a wintery treat that can be read even after Christmas has passed.
