¸.•*´¨)¸.•*´¨) The Wedding: A Finding Melodie Sequel by Laura Rossi ¸.•*´¨)¸.•*´¨)
Once upon a time, whilst playing her guitar under The London Eye, a crazy, pink-haired hippie met and became friends with a very, very special guy.
*Sighs with heart-shaped eyes*
And what started as a game—a love game—soon became something more.
Well, you’ve heard this story before, haven’t you?
You know how we became friends and fell in love.
What you don’t know is what happened when we decided to get married. It hasn’t been exactly easy to get everyone on board with our relationship.
Let me tell you… From ‘once upon a time’ to ‘happily ever after’, quite a lot has happened.
Buckle up. It’s a roller coaster ride
“Quirky, funny and sweet” Louise
“I laughed non stop, couldn’t put the book down at all.” Shabby at Book Bistrot
“Fabulous! A wonderfully, light hearted sequel to Finding Melody… I smiled, laughed, frowned and smiled again all the way through.” Sue John
“It’s a perfect romcom story to put a big smile on your face!” Stina Andersen
The Wedding is a continuation of Finding Melody. We rejoin Melodie now that she’s got her ‘office guy’ and we follow them through another chapter of their life together.
You’d think now that they’re together it’d be plain sailing for them, you’d be wrong.
Melodie is a loveable, quirky, sassy little firecracker. Isaacs is her nerdy office guy. In some ways they seem like polar opposites, but they do say that opposites attract.
Whilst Melodie seems to be all sass and confidence, she has to deal with her own inner voice; just like we all do. Not only that Melodie has to deal with her future mother in law too, not an easy feat.
With Christmas fast approaching, knowing they’re spending it with Issac’s family, Melodie tries to hunt down the perfect presents to help win over her potential mother-in-law. The world, however, had other plans. Melodie and Issac end up have to travel to his parents separately, Melodie going up ahead of Issac. That’s when things begin to go wrong.
By the time Issac arrives his mother has come up with the ‘perfect’ plan to get between the two of them. Melodie after reaching breaking point flees back to her father’s home to try to understand and accept her fate.
Is this the end for Melodie and Issac?? I guess you’ll have to read it for yourself and see!!
For a book entitled ‘The Wedding’ you’d assume that it’s all romance, hearts, flowers and happiness; for some authors this would be right; for this particular author: no. Why write all hearts and flowers when you can grab a big stick and stir in a whole heap of emotional turmoil to spice things up! Bravo Laura, bravo!
This book is mainly written from Melodie’s POV, but it also does have some chapters that are written from the POV of Melodie’s Mother-In-Law to be, this offers a whole new perspective to this incredible story.
Laura’s writing style is a compelling, cleverly thought-out web of love, lust, emotion, lies and sass. Laura gives you all the details, all the emotion that you need to be drawn into Melodie’s world and feeling as though you are a part of her life and part of every event that takes place.
This was an incredible follow up to Finding Melodie. I loved every page and I would highly recommend these book to anyone looking for a rom-com feel good read.
