Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my review for A Wedding on Sunflower Street by Rachel Griffiths today. With a big thank you to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
Summer has come to Sunflower Street and there’s excitement in the air…
Lila Edwards is enjoying her pregnancy and counting down the days until her June wedding. Lila’s fiancé, Ethan Morris, has decorated the nursery, and everything seems to be going to plan until an unexpected visitor arrives in the village.
Roxie and Fletcher Walker are enjoying the summer with their two dogs and Roxie is busier than ever helping Lila with her wedding plans. Roxie is determined to ensure that Lila and Ethan have a wonderful day.
Joanne Baker and Max Jenkins have moved in together and are making the most of lazy weekends and country walks. They’re keeping an eye on the property market but nothing they’ve seen is quite right. If only they could find the perfect home to make their own.
Join the residents of Sunflower Street as they prepare for the wedding of the year, discover a long-hidden secret and look forward to a new arrival.
In this book we meet the residents of Sunflower Street and see how their summer is going. Lila is preparing for her upcoming wedding and the arrival of her baby. With a helping hand from close friends Roxie and Joanne, who are eager to make sure everything goes perfectly!
I do love this series! Each book is like a warm, comforting hug with that extra charm of feeling like I’m catching up with old friends. This is book five in the series but it does work as a standalone. The author helpfully weaves past events into the story. Which would easily help new readers become acquainted with the characters lives. However to get a real feel for the characters then it might be worth starting at the very beginning. Plus that way you get to experience every book in this wonderful feel good series.
In every book the friendships hold such a wonderful pull for me and this book is another brilliant example of this. They are right there for each other, providing support and at times guidance. It really does help to create an extra warmth to the story. Each character brings something special but I have to say my favourite is Roxie, I love her relationship with Fletcher and the close bond she has with Lila.
I really enjoyed my escape to Sunflower Street and catching up with this group of friends. You will find friendships, a sprinkling of romance and even a long held secret within the pages of this book. A Wedding on Sunflower Street is both bright and hopeful, which easily made me smile!
