My #Review for Marrying Mr Valentine by Laura Barnard @BarnardLaura

Nadine Roberts smiles for everyone, but beneath it she hides a heartbreaking past that only a few know about. Throwing herself into her new career; wedding planner at The Duck & Goose, a property recently purchased by newlyweds Florence and Hugh, has helped distract her from her loneliness.

When a teary bride suddenly cancels her upcoming wedding Nadine looks to the two year waiting list. Clara Blumenkrantz and Hartley Valentine. It’ll have to be a quick turnaround, but what’s the worst that can happen, right?

This should be like every other wedding she plans, but the magnetism she feels towards Mr Valentine disrupts the orderly life she’s worked hard to carve out.

Can she ignore her intense desires and be a professional? Or will she open up her heart to the one person that has the power to break it? And in doing so endanger not just her job, but her venue’s reputation?



Marrying Mr Valentine is the second book in Laura Barnard’s One Month Til I Do series, and despite not having read the first book this one was fine to read as a stand alone and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

I really enjoyed the plot and the characters were very likeable and I loved the story.  The writing style was great and the story flowed really well.  Very highly recommended and I will be looking to get the first book in the series ASAP!!

4.5 stars from me, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon!

She enjoys wearing yoga pants and reading fitness magazines while sitting on the sofa eating chocolate. She’s a real fan of the power nap and of course READING!

She writes not to get rich or famous, but because she LOVES writing. Even if one person tells her they enjoyed her book it makes the midnight typing worth it!
