Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was simply beautiful. After reading the book I felt absolutely wrenched out, exhausted. The emotions ravaged me like the seas in stormy weather. Each chapter was a 2 hour interval over a period of 48 hours.
This was book 3, so my characters were back. Caro was in a panic, something was stopping her from marrying Cammy. Cammy loved her but was at the risk of being jilted at the alter. Josie was the wedding planner but had received a devastating news earlier in the day. Stacey was back to declare her love. Seb had a secret to reveal.
Having read many Shari Low books, I knew that the emotions would be expressed beautifully. What I didn’t expect were the shockers in this, the way they would carry me from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. Happiness, sadness, heartbreak, shock, betrayal, anger, I felt all these acutely.
Shari Low is a master storyteller. Her way of embodying the characters and making them whole was a sight to behold. I loved knowing each of them in every book. But this was the perfect culmination, the perfect end to an epic tale foretold since many years.
The relationship between the characters had me sobbing like a baby, the innocence and their love made the ice around my heart break. They genuinely liked and loved each other. The support they gave each other – I longed for such friends. But all was not sweet, the author had added spice to a few characters where I couldn’t help feel angry.
I loved the way I was nothing but just cells filled with emotions. My heart was full and empty. The beauty of this book just kept me going long into the day, simply thankful and glad that I got to know these characters.
I loved the book, and it loved me back!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Shari Low is the No1 best-selling author of over 20 novels, including One Day In Winter, A Life Without You, The Story Of Our Life, With Or Without You, Another Day In Winter and her latest release, This is Me.
And because she likes to over-share toe-curling moments and hapless disasters, she is also the shameless mother behind a collection of parenthood memories called Because Mummy Said So.
Once upon a time she met a guy, got engaged after a week, and twenty-something years later she lives near Glasgow with her husband, a labradoodle, and two teenagers who think she’s fairly embarrassing except when they need a lift.
One December wedding. One runaway bride. One winter’s day to bring everyone together again.
Today is meant to be the happiest of Caro’s life. She’s finally going to say ‘I do’ to the man she loves, until her past comes back to haunt her.
Josie will do anything to keep this wedding on track, even if it requires tracking down a runaway bride, keeping the groom in the dark and appeasing a variety of family members.
Stacey has one last chance to tell the one that got away how she feels, she can only hope that he feels the same way.
Cammy just wants to call Caro his wife. He’s ready to settle down with her, she’s the one. But can he get her to realise that marriage doesn’t always end in sadness? That they could live happily-ever-after…
