A Warm Welcome
Just Say Yes by Maxine Morrey is the most charming contemporary novel that will make you smile and warm your heart.
The book follows a wedding planner to Ireland as she teams up with a best man to plan a wedding. Their verbal exchanges are a delight to witness. They are playful and bouncy.
As the novel is written in the first person from the point of view of Maddie, the wedding planner, we become intimately acquainted with her.
I loved the inclusion of a small dog called Bod. He came to life with Maxine Morrey’s words and was very much a character in his own right.
We see that the past has got a hold of a character threatening to derail present happiness. Events in the past only have as much power as we give them – so leave them in the past and step into the future.
There is a huge Irish welcome for the reader. Lives open up and bond over food. There are some big personalities who open their hearts, lives and homes to others.
I absolutely loved Just Say Yes. It was a really fun, heartwarming read. I always enjoy Maxine Morrey’s books.
I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
Just Say Yes
Wedding planner Madeline lives in a picture-perfect thatched cottage, in a picture-perfect English country village.
There’s only one problem – dream cottages take a lot of work, and with a leaking roof, and not enough money to pay for it, what Maddie needs now is a big wedding to plan.
So she’s delighted when she takes on the wedding of Californian heiress Peyton, to all-round good guy Patrick. She’s less delighted to find out that she’s going to have help – from the admittedly gorgeous, but equally maddening, tall, dark and handsome best man Lorcan.
The wedding is set to take place in a castle in rural Ireland, and so, in no time, Maddie and Lorcan are on their way to Ballalee. Life hasn’t always been easy for Maddie, and work has become her refuge. But soon the warmth and humour of Lorcan’s Irish family and friends start to chip away at Maddie’s walls. And as the big day approaches, it might be time for Maddie to focus less on her clients’ love life and more on her own…
