A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan
Goodreads | Book Depository
Synopsis (from Goodreads)
In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding.
First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret about their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.
Rosie’s older sister Katie is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself. If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…
Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiance but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived – how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget.
A Wedding in December was such a fun read, it was exactly what I needed to get into the Christmas spirit! I hadn’t read any novels by Sarah Morgan previously but I had heard of her so my expectations were quite high. I’m pleased that the novel turned out to be a very entertaining romcom with plenty of secrets and drama.
The White family have just received the surprise bombshell that Rosie, the youngest daughter, is engaged to an American man she’s only known for a few months, and the wedding is Christmas eve! Everyone is suddenly in a panic about flights and desperately trying to convince Rosie to not be so hasty. But we soon find out that the White family are not as contented as they seem, Rosie’s parents are on the brink of divorce and Katie has secrets she’s refusing to share.
Filled to the brim with drama, this was a very entertaining and engaging read. It was also a surprisingly quick read despite the 400+ pages! I enjoyed this novel from start to finish although it’s not a genre I would usually choose.
One thing I adore in novels is multiple POVs, in A Wedding in December the chapters are split between Maggie, the mum and Rosie and Katie, her two daughters, perspectives. I enjoyed reading the events of the novel from each of the main characters perspectives but I enjoyed Katie’s POV the most. I loved the bond she had with Rosie and how fiercely protective she was.
A fun, seasonal read packed full of hilarious and dramatic moments, if you’re looking for a Christmas novel I would definitely recommend this one.
