Who 's meddling with happily ever after?
The Wedding: it’s a set up.The Break-up: it’s a con.The Reconciliation: it’s a trap.
When high society bride, Samantha Carroll, devises an ingenious plan to ditch her meddling matchmaking mamma’s groom of choice, the banker’s son, instead of the ordinary Irish guy Johnny Belen she’s pining for, all pandemonium breaks loose.
In the meantime, Johnny has devised his own plan to thwart monster-mamma-in-law’s matchmaking for the wedding of the season, but it is soon clear that Sam is not the type of girl who can be scooped up by just any man…
Now come on who doesn’t love a book cover with some pink wellies on! I am sold! Given that and the blurb of the book, you are onto a winner.
Sam, aka Samantha, comes from a family where appearances mean everything, and she is everything destined to marry Michael Scott.
Johnny comes from a family with little to no money, but he has a huge heart and is willing to go to lengths to show Sam how much he loves her. Plus, it helps that Sam is just crazy about Johnny.
Some people will just do about anything to get out of marrying someone, and then here comes the opening chapter, it is chaotic and so funny, to say the least, but Sam and Johnny get married…. or so they think!
I have seen a few grumbles about the prologue of the book, but like with any book, the prologue is just a teaser to the book, to get you gripped and this one is the exact same…and when you find out what the prologue is about well it just wet my appetite for more! It made for a great twist in a modern love story.
With this book, you need to leave your inhibitions at the door and go with the flow, this is a book where you need to persevere and not give up. There were secrets kept by both parties and most of the time I wanted to hit their heads together, so much drama, no need, why do it to yourself! But it gets the flow of the book going and adds to the humour of the book as I found myself chuckling out loud a few times!! Plus, who can turn their nose up at a bit of divine intervention?
