Better Off Wed by Portia Mackintosh


Better Off Wed by Portia Mackintosh is another delightful contemporary offering that will warm your heart and leave you smiling.

There is a wonderful light-hearted tone to the story as we follow the preparations for a double wedding.

All the characters are realistic and likable, creating a warm atmosphere that envelops the reader.

The leading lady is charming and hilariously funny with her jokes and one-liners. There was a wonderful chemistry between her and the leading man.

We see that new friendships have big hearts. Characters bond over food and companionship.

Family is important. We see a big-hearted family who contrast sharply with a cold, business-like family who make calculated alliances for personal gain.

We are treated to the Cornish coast where the sun shines and the beaches are beautiful.

I thoroughly enjoyed Better Off Wed. I always adore Portia Mackintosh’s novels.

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.


Better Off Wed

Save the date…!

Olivia can’t believe it when her boyfriend, Teddy, proposes out of the blue. She loves him (of course she does!) BUT it does seem sudden, especially when they don’t even live together yet…

There is only one place that Olivia has ever wanted to get married – a gorgeous venue on the Cornish coast, built by her grandfather. The problem is they only have one date available – and it’s only a few weeks away! Olivia isn’t so sure about rushing but Teddy jumps at the chance to be married within the month.

Thrown into a whirlwind of wedding planning, alarm bells start to ring for Olivia. Are they doing this for the right reasons? Why is Teddy in such a rush? And when he fails to help with any part of the preparations, Olivia must find help elsewhere, with unexpected results…

As the countdown begins, will the wedding go ahead? Or will Olivia find that her future happiness lies elsewhere…?
