WEDDING SEASON IS THE perfect summer read, or perfect read for anytime of the year. I rank this right up there with THIS CHARMING MAN and THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES. This is story of Sarah, Bron, and Elsa who seem to have the knack of pulling off the perfect weddings and organizing everything . . . but their own lives. The contrast between their Swiss-watch perfection in making other's dreams come true, and the funny events that ruin and run their own lives is refreshing and somehow real-life-like. The dialogue is great and the characters are three dimensional. What was the one thing I didn't like about WEDDING SEASON? I couldn't put it down.

I've been a great fan of Katie fforde: her dry humour, everyday women in situations not unlike those of my own or my friends, and they've given a light, relaxing read. Unfortunately, this one doesn't work for me. There is far too much detail about how wedding planning companies work and I have the impression that in her desperation to meet a publishers' deadline Katie fforde just put down loads of the research she'd done for the book. There's almost none of the humour which made her books special. Maybe I've just read too many but it was all so predictable.

Oh dear, the pressure that this author is under to deliver a novel a year is showing. This is not a very good novel. It's rushed, no character is sufficiently deeply drawn, and it lacks humour. It's also really badly edited; there are repetitions and typos and lots of other inconsistencies. Katie would do better to write less and revert to the charm and humour of her earlier novels.

Another hit for Katie Fforde. I'm a big fan, have read all of her books. But Wedding Season rises to the top as just about my favorite. It's fresh and funny and just the right touch of pragmatism and escapism. Not too sweet, but not depressingly stressful either. This must have been a tricky one to write, because it's really the story of three women - Sarah, Bron and Elsa. They're all brought together by Sarah to work on a celebrity wedding, but they each have their own unique story. It all comes together at the end, but not without some turns. Another nice touch is the balancing of the big over-the-top wedding with the smaller (but equally complicated!) wedding of Sarah's younger sister. My review will not do this book justice - it's a wonderful way to spend time away from the real world, I can't recommend it highly enough. Well done!

I was quite disappointed by this book. I couldn't warm to the main character at all, the storyline is very predictable, and everything is just to "convenient" to be believable. I got through it quite quickly and it was an easy, lighthearted read, but I've read better.

I have been a fan of Katie Fford's from her earliest works 'The Rose Revived' and 'Stately Pursuits', but this one, like the last couple of her's, have made me decide I will not read any more. This one was trite, boring and so horribly predicatable - right from the beginning I knew what was going to happen to all 3 women - and the only reason I kept going was to prove myself right! It gave every indication of having been written to a formula by a once funny and clever writer who obviously feels she no longer needs to make an effort - her name alone will sell it. The dialogue was stilted and unbelieveable, the characters left me completely unmoved. Thank goodness for the library I say! At least I didn't buy it.

I discovered Katie Fforde's books only last year and I have enjoyed all that I have read so far. With my own wedding fast approaching, I thought I would give Wedding Season a go.
Sarah Stratford is a wedding planner with a secret, she doesn't believe in love, her skills are tested to the limit when she has to organise the celebrity wedding of the year plus her little sister's tiny budget wedding, all on the same day. Luckily she is able to enlist the help of two new friends; Elsa is a dress designer who prefers to stay out of the limelight and Bron is a hairdresser, among many things, who is embarking on a new and exciting life. So from sourcing the perfect venue, making a fairytale dress and constructing an impossible wedding cake, these three definitely have their hands full. As with all of Katie Fforde's books, there is always time for a little bit of romance! The suave and extremely handsome Hugo has his work cut out persuading Sarah to take some of her barriers down; Elsa drops her wall-flower status to go on a date with Laurence and Bron is getting extremely frustrated with her neighbour, James who does not seem to realise that she exists! With two weddings to organise and an extremely tight schedule, the reader is left wondering if these three lovely characters will ever find true love?
I really enjoyed Wedding Season, Katie Fforde always delivers a good story with believable characters and the perfect sprinkling of romance. The book is very funny in parts but also captures all the stress and anxiety involved in organising a wedding. I think it is a perfect summer read, especially for anyone getting married or going to a wedding this year!

Format: Paperback
Where previously Katie Fforde has concentrated on a single character, in Wedding Season there are three leading ladies. Unfortunately, this means that there is much less depth in any of their stories and very little ever seems to actually happen. If the book were twice as long and allowed for more development, it would be much better.

The editing also seems much worse than previous Fforde novels as well, there are a disturbing number of simple errors.

Jolly the completionist and outright fan; there are better Fforde novels if you're neither of those.
