Book Description

22 Jun 1997

When Tash French's potty grandmother mistakes a Christmas cracker engagement ring for the genuine article, a wedding of astronomical proportions is planned. Swept away by everyone's enthusiasm, Tash and her partner, Niall, can do little but laugh and go along with it. After all, they had meant to marry all along, hadn't they?

As the wedding plans escalate, however, Tash starts to have doubts. Niall, a rising acting star, is always working away from home, forgetting important dates and falling in love with his leading ladies, and her own eyes keep wandering to a roguish fellow event rider. Even if the Best Man wins, Tash looks likely to give away more than her hand in marriage - she may lose her head and heart as well ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Excellent and fun read! 1 Oct 2001
I bought this book along with Snap Happy and French Realtions seeing as it was its sequel, and I am glad I did! Brilliant and witty, I was sucked in from the very beginning. Although most enjoyable when read after reading French Relations, it is one of the most entertaining books I've read in ages. The return of Hugo was amazing, he has a very Mr. Darcy quality about him, but with more shows of vulnerability. Tash was a funny heroine, very easy to sympathise with. I found myself laughing out loud whilst reading it, to which i got some very odd looks. Excellent read, very well written, and one of my favourite books by Ms. Walker. If only i had a Hugo! Keep them coming Fiona!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! 25 Oct 2005
By A Customer
I read this book having read french relations and I have to say that I was gripped from the first page! Very funny at times with a fantastic romance underneath. I only wish that there was a Hugo out there for everyone...
Please please please can we have another book with the old characters in, the latest books havent been half as much fun to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! 26 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This is without doubt the best book i have ever read!
It made me want to move to the country!!!!
Tash French is the best heroine, she is such a loveable character! At first i loathed Hugo, but then fell in love with him too!
I read Well Groomed first then French Relations, i'm about to start Kiss Chase and can't wait, although i'm sure it won't compare to Well Groomed!

I just love all of Fiona Walker's books; this is by far the best! Every woman loves a bounder, and Hugo is certainy that. Who would have thought that name like Hugo could sound so dashing and romantic?
Makes you want to take up eventing in the hope that you could meet him! I always read this book to put me in a good mood- and it never fails to work!
Would love to see more of the characters in another sequel. Can't wait for more books of such a high standard.
By the way, Fiona Walker is much wittier and observant of human nature than Jilly Cooper!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite EVER read 15 Aug 2003
By A Customer
For some reason this is the book for me!
I liked everything about it, and have read it many many times (it has even survived a dunk in the bath!)
Hugo - what can I say? Daft name, a very attractive man, although he reminds me alot of Rupert Campbell-Black.
Tash is normal - good days and bad days, yet, he's hot to trot whatever!
A good, silly, fun and frolicksome read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stayed up until 4:30 a.m. to finish it! 10 July 2001
By A Customer
This was my 3rd Fiona Walker book. I find myself paying huge overseas shipping costs to get her books because they make me laugh and keep turning the pages more than authors I have read from the States. Although this book was predictable at times (as readers we just know it all!) I still thought the character development was top notch. The loose ends were tied up from the first novel and the characters stayed true to their personalities. Hugo was a perfect jerk, Tash was an oblivious mess, and Niall was lost as ever. It's nice to have a heroine who isn't so perfect! .. Loved it and hope she keeps on writing.
