Kate is planning her perfect wedding to fiancée Tim who she met just three months ago. Whilst wedding dress shopping with her mother and sister Bea in the town of Risdale she finds her dream dress a vintage gown which had been left on the doorstep of the shop. Having no clue who previously owned the dress Kate discovers a note pinned inside wishing the new owner of the dress the best of luck with their wedding. Kate is in intrigued and wants to find out more.Kate embarks upon a quest to locate the owner and in doing so is reassuring herself that she is making the right decision to marry Tim despite some niggling doubts at the back of her mind.
The story takes place in a very short time frame in the week leading up the wedding and Christmas , the author is able to fit a lot in to such a short time frame and I felt the characters became really well developed.There was no messing about setting up the story. We are plunged straight into the world of Kate and her family. I got to know them well and felt for Kate and her indecisiveness. Kate who works as a florist does her best to solve the mystery and uses social media and newspapers to try and locate the one time owner of the dress and I loved what happened next as it was such a sweet and romantic story.It is hard to review a novella without giving too much away but I think I have set the scene for what takes place in the story.Married by Midnight had the perfect magical ending. Talli Roland writes with humour and sensitivity and this Christmas novella has got me in the festive mood.I’ll definitely be checking out more books and novellas by Talli as I can’t believe I hadn’t read anything by this wonderful author before.
I read this short story and absolutely loved it. It's different and a really feel good novel which is ideal for the run up to Christmas.
Kate finds the ideal wedding dress, a vintage thirties dream, which has a note attached that Kate finds intriguing. Who was the mysterious woman to whom the dress had belonged? Kate tries, through social media (what would we do with it now?), to trace the woman. What she uncovers is a poignant and heart-warming love story that will have you reaching for the tissues. The very satisfactory ending gave me the same lovely feeling that comes with Christmas.
The stars have aligned, the fates have spoken, the horoscopes have decried it, so Kate is getting married this Christmas. Who cares if the man of her dreams isn’t all that dreamy and he spends more time watching the game than paying attention to her? One thing that is worthy of her daydreams is the vintage wedding dress she finds. But when she finds a note pinned inside the dress, she becomes more interested in unravelling the mystery surrounding its owner than in continuing to plan her own quickly approaching wedding.
As with all of Talli’s books, Married by Midnight is wonderfully unique. I love the premise of the book, and how everything came together. Kate is a funny, spunky character, and her mother and sister made great side characters.
I loved the overall message of this book about following your heart, doing what’s right for you, and continuing to believe in love, even when things don’t work out exactly how you planned. For such a short story, it packed a punch.
Married by Midnight is cute, sweet, funny, and romantic. Another winner from Talli Roland!
