Freya Scott is getting married. Her wedding to Matthew, her long-term boyfriend, is the first of eight in her calendar this year, and as someone who prides herself on being meticulously organized, Freya is intent on making it the perfect day to remember.
But when Matthew calls things off hours before they walk down the aisle, Freya’s entire life plan goes up in smoke. Humiliated and heartbroken, the last thing she wants is to attend a summer of other peoples’ nuptials on her own.
Fortunately, her friends have an idea: together they devise a series of outrageous challenges for Freya to complete at each event, designed to distract her from Matthew and what might have been. From getting stuck in an old church bathroom and needing to be rescued by the vicar to making out with a barman at a French chateau, Freya realizes that despite herself, she might just be having fun.
By the time the final wedding arrives, she will discover that the road to a happy ending sometimes has unexpected detours, that “I do” is only the beginning––and that perhaps her own love story isn’t over just yet.
Cute, amusing, and highly entertaining!
The Wedding Season is a lighthearted, feel-good tale that takes you into the life of Freya Scott, a young woman who, after recently being jilted at the altar, endeavours to tackle a wedding season survival task list created by her two best friends that will challenge her to be more, do more, and perhaps provide an opportunity for a meet-cute with a man she could never have dreamed of liking but who is actually absolutely perfect for her.
The prose is flirty and fun. The characters are friendly, lovable, and sweet. And the plot is an engaging, push-pull tale of family, friendship, tricky situations, playful banter, embarrassing moments, humorous hijinks, self-discovery, happiness, romance, and love.
Overall, The Wedding Season is another charming, smart, enjoyable tale by Birchall that I thoroughly enjoyed and which, in my opinion, is the perfect choice for anyone who loves romcoms that have a whole lot of hope, heart, and humour.
