Ellie Browne is looking forward, with her partner Max, to hosting Christmas Day lunch at The Dog & Duck, but heavily pregnant now and with a snowstorm brewing outside, it seems that things might not go quite to plan.
After the dramatic events of the holiday season, Ellie settles into her new life at Max’s country mansion Braithwaite Manor, juggling work and family as best she can. When she’s asked to help organise a summer wedding for one of her best friends it’s only natural that her mind turns to her own, non-existent, wedding plans!
With Max decidedly lukewarm on the whole subject and other family complications threatening to disrupt life further, Ellie fears there’ll never be wedding bells at the Dog & Duck after all.
Funny and heart-warming continuation of Max and Ellie’s story at the Dog and Duck.
With the imminent arrival of their first child Max wants to get married but for reasons of her own, Ellie does not. When assigned the role of wedding planner for her best friend, Ellie finds herself surround by all things romance and soon feels the bug, however Max seems to have gone right off the idea.
Ellie and Max are such a wonderful couple. They are not massively into personal displays of affection and even moments of jealousy and soon brushed aside. They are definitely a couple who will stay the distance, even if the bells are not ringing for them this time.
A feel-good story full of laughs, romance and caring with a few surprises along the way. This book is just what you need when the sun is shining on a chilly Spring day.
