Summertime at the Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James.#Review

I am delighted to be supporting the celebrations for Daisy James' latest, Summertime at the Cornish Confetti Agency.

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?

My Thoughts

What could be more enticing on a beautiful June day than a return to Daisy James' Cornish Confetti Agency? You can read the story as a standalone but you get most out of the story if you have read how Lexie has come to end up as a wedding coordinator back in Cornwall. All the characters who were introduced are back again and there are some lively moments as Lexie's arrangements begin to unwind. You can absolutely visualise the beautiful settings and feel like a silent guest at the wedding. 

    There is a mystery to uncover as before, and some new people to get to know. It feels like a romcom meets a cosy mystery which is a great combination for a light, summer's read. It is always a good sign when you get to the end of a book and want to know what happens next and how the next wedding fares. This is a series with the potential to run and run.

In short: Wedding fun!

About the Author

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.
