This is the sequel to the Game of Scones and we are back in Taxos for what should be the Greek wedding of the year, however the cracks are appearing in Pippa and Nico's relationship. Henrik , Pippa's former boyfriend makes a surprise appearance on the scene reigniting Pippa's feelings and yearnings for her old life in london. Where will this all lead? Read the book to find out.

Another wonderful read from Samantha and this time she deals with surprising ease and sensitivity the refugee crisis engulfing the island of Kos, interweaving it in the story to make it one of the key dramatic events of the book. I loved the return of all the characters in the first book and in a way it felt like I was returning home giving me quite a warming feeling in the process.

The thing I liked the most about this book was the way I could completely relate to the way Pippa was feeling firstly when Henrik appears and then when she works out what she really wants. I felt myself going through the same feelings as her while reading, the attraction to Henrik, the nostalgia and yearning for the bright lights and then discovering what is most important in life. This made a really nice change from some books from other authors I have read where inside I am fighting and disagreeing with everything the main protagonist is feeling and doing. That can sometimes get quite frustrating but there was none of that here.

This book is Samantha's most mature venture yet but handled with amazing ease and filled with warmth, humour and love! Oh and I mustn't forget the Scones which is really the answer to all of life's problems! :)

If like me you fell in love with the character of Pippa Pattinson in Samantha Tonge's brilliant Game of Scones earlier this year then you will be delighted to discover one of your favourite characters is back just in time for the Christmas season. My Big Fat Christmas Wedding is a follow up to the adventures of Pippa and new fiancée Nico living in the tiny Greek village of Taxos. Even though this is the second in the series it is stressed that it can be read as a standalone but truthfully to get the full value, experience and enjoyment from these wonderful, friendly, realistic characters I would suggest you read Game of Scones first. Sequels or books that continue on a story can be hard to write. Sometimes the writer has run out of steam, yes they may have needed a second book to finish part of the story if there was no room left in the first. But then the issue is resolved too early and the reader is left to read pages of endless filling in just to complete the book. Not so here, Samantha Tonge has created another witty story with romance, friendships and community spirit right at its heart and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. It's obvious the author knew right from when she created these characters there was plenty in their story waiting to be told. Book two is just as good as book one despite some predictability but I pushed that aside and enjoyed the story of Pippa, Nico and the villagers as Christmas is just on the horizon.

What I thought was great about this story was that it was set just four months after we last left Pippa. It really felt like we just had a little holiday from the characters and now the reader was easily able to pick where we had left off. This was a refreshing change as often sequels carry on two or three years later.

I had my eye on Samatha Tonge's fabulous books for a while, and I am quite shocked it took me that long to grab a copy of her book because I have been missing out on Samatha wonderful way of descriptive writing and seamlessly flowing storylines.

My Big Fat Christmas Wedding is a standalone sequel to Game of Scones. I haven't yet read Game of Scones, but I still felt right at home with all those delightful characters and quickly find my way through the story without being confused about " the who is who" game.

Pippa Pattison, the former city high flyer, is enjoying her new love in rustic simplicity, running a quaint teashop on a sleepy Greek island with her fiance, Niko. But it has been a rather quick change to slow living, and you can't blame a girl for wondering, "how did I get here?"
Pippa is very excited about her Greek wedding, but a quick trip to snowy England for her ex's engagement party makes her wonder about a few important things. So what is it going to be for Pippa - a glamorous woman with a city lifestyle or a wife of a fisherman?

I can honestly relate to Pippa. She is a leading lady with a determined personality and high intellect who happened to find the love of her life in a charming yet sleepy Greek village. Although I am not in an exactly same position as Pippa, I understand how hard it must have been for her to give up her city lifestyle and relocate to a different country where she had to adapt to a different set of rules. I delighted in watching Pippa being smitten with not only Niko's family but with so many other residents of the small Taxos community.
