I love books set at Christmas, and A WEDDING IN DECEMBER had not only Christmas at its core but also a lot of wedding planning. It was a quick read set in both England and Colorado with wonderful scenic descriptions. The story is told by either Maggie, Katie, or Rosie, and I loved the cover!
I could feel the gloom in England, and it wasn’t only due to the weather. Maggie and Nick are having marital problems and are now living apart, but neither of their grown daughters, Katie or Rosie, have even an inkling about it. Rosie calls from the United States where she’s gone to live for her schooling and drops a bombshell that’s she’s about to be married, and quickly too. Katie’s own life as a doctor is in turmoil, which no one in her family is aware of, but that doesn’t stop her from meddling in her sister’s engagement or her life.
As the family upends their lives to go to Colorado for Rosie’s wedding to Dan, whom they’ve never met, things take an interesting turn. I loved the characters, the wedding planning, and Snowfall Lodge, which is owned by Dan’s family.
Rosie has changed a lot, being on her own. Yet protective Katie finds it difficult to see her as an adult. The story is filled with secrets and romance, family and friends. From Rosie’s parents’ relationship to her sister’s involvement with Dan’s best man, love is in the air. The ending is nicely realized, though I would love to read more about this family in a future book.
Ms. Morgan is an author whose books I’ve enjoyed. I’ve only read a few of them and have added more to my always growing TBR pile!
