I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
All she wants for Christmas is a second chance . . .
Charlotte Daniels has made her share of mistakes, but now that she's a single mom, she vows to do better--and that starts with a new career. Working at her sister's event-planning company is just the fresh start she needs.
Kate Daniels has finally forgiven Charlotte for her betrayal, but forgetting it is harder. But as the holidays approach and Kate has her own wedding to plan, she has no choice but to turn to Charlotte for help to throw a high-profile client the holiday party of the season.
Charlotte leaps at the chance to redeem herself . . . until this irresistible client asks her to pretend to be his fiancée for the party. She knows their charade won't come without consequences--not just for her fresh start with Kate, but also for her own daughter.
As Kate's wedding draws near and Charlotte's fake romance starts to feel more and more real, will she fall back into the mistakes of her past, or finally prove herself to Kate once and for all?
In the vein of New York Times bestselling authors Susan Mallery, Robyn Carr, and Elin Hilderbrand, comes the second in a women's fiction series about the complicated ties of sisterhood that bind us together and sometimes tear us apart.
I fell in love with Olivia Miles writing with the release of One Week To The Wedding and am thrilled to finally have the follow-up. The Winter Wedding plan is the story about the reconciliation of the deeply divided Daniels sisters’, Kate and Charlotte.
Charlotte certainly has much to make up for and this story focuses on her life as she works on reconciling with Kate and making a home for herself and her daughter Audrey. She’s had a hard time as a young mother and the situation that created that circumstance made it hard to believe I’d feel much sympathy for her. But in the end Charlotte is a character who is certainly worthy of Kate’s forgiveness and in finding some happiness of her own. But Charlotte faces an identity crisis and needs direction to get her life back on track.
“But then she didn’t know the real Charlotte. She had no idea that Charlotte was a single, unwed mother. A townie from Misty Point. An event planner.”
Also playing a large part in this story is their cousin Bree. She’s experiencing her own recent breakup that’s left her a bit lost and envious of anyone partnered off. At times it’s painful to be privy to her thoughts and seeing her move through the holiday season:
“It seemed to Charlotte that Bree wasn’t so much as physically sick as she was heartsick. She knew all the signs by now. Lack of sleep. Lack of appetite. Crestfallen expression. Broken spirit.”
I enjoyed getting to know both Charlotte and Bree. Miles does a really great job putting us in both characters heads and moving their lives forward – getting passed the past and creating their own futures. Of course, the big event that the story leads up to is Kate’s wedding and securing a holiday filled with family and friends. 4.5 stars – series and book recommendation!
