request to view the title via Net Galley Thank you And to Scarlett Bailey of course, the wonderful creator of this charming story set in the adorable little town of Poldore that I have been missing since reading Just for Christmas which, by the way, was equally beautiful I was ecstatic when I read that I had been accepted for this title and I downloaded it to my kindle as soon as I possibly could, although with a mountain of a to read pile beside me, it took a while for me to actually get around to reading it This is the second novel that I have read that is written by Scarlett Bailey and I was delighted to be taken back to Poldore, the charming little town hidden away in Cornwall Tamsyn Thorne s story begins during her taxi ride back into Poldore, the rain pouring and the sky above a stormy grey, reminiscent of the day when she left,than five years ago Scarlett gives us a little background information about what Tamsyn has been up to whilst she s been absent she s now a glamorous, sophisticated woman with a Parisian apartment and a job handling the business and PR for a fashion design company, who s also currently having a very grown up affair with her boss, Bernard du Mont Pere I loved Tamsyn from the get go Although she wasn t exactly the brightest bulb in the box, she had a knack for creating beautiful designs and a hero like quality about her Upon Tamsyn s arrival back into Poldore, Scarlett repeatedly hints towards something that blew up between Tamsyn and her brother, Ruan, before she left the town all those years ago I thought that this was a fabulous way to open her novel and really grab the reader s attention, beckoning for me to read on and find outTamysn was beautiful, creative and had a cute tendency to put her foot in it , which we ve all done at one point or another, haven t we The contrast between her Parisian life and the life that she was returning too was brilliantly shown to the reader by Scarlett s comical and true to life descriptions Poldore itself was as delightful as ever, even if it was in the midst of a raging storm as Tamsyn returned I particularly loved this description, it brought the town to life in my mind instantly Poldore looked, as ever, as if it was tumbling down the hill towards the Atlantic as if one good nudge might be enough to send it floating out to sea, like a sort of picture postcard Atlantis Scarlett made it sound like this perfect, hidden away town that, as stated above, wouldn t look out of place on a postcard I loved everything about it, including all of it s quirky and vibrant characters from Sue Montaigne to Buoy the dog It was cosy, comfortable and I just wanted to snuggle down in the local pub and watch the characters carry on with their lives I cannot put into words how happy I was to return to Poldore beside Tamsyn, although I should say that Tamsyn didn t seem the happiest about returning home As I found with Just for Christmas, Scarlett s characters were just impossible to not love There were so many of them, all with their unique and colourful personalities, and I found that I never found it hard to keep up with them This was probably to do with the fact that Scarlett was writing from a third person perspective and stayed with Tamsyn throughout the entirety of the story, so I never found myself muddled up with who s who There was Jed an unbelievably hot vicar Tamsyn s mother and sisters, a whole bunch of Thorne women who never failed to entertain me or make me giggle Ruan, Tamsyn s gorgeous brother who was the groom to be, and Alex, Ruan s bride, the woman who Tamsyn had never met before I loved witnessing Tamsyn being reunited with her brother, and again, the distinct hint of something that had happened before was constantly hovering just above them It was like waiting for something explosive to happen Scarlett s characters brought the town and her fictional story to life I m not including a spoiler here as it is already mentioned in the blurb, but there s also the baby aspect too I did wonder how on earth Scarlett was going to manage to include a baby within the story as Tamsyn didn t seem to have a daughter or son with her when she arrived, so I was a little confused, but then BAM, it happened It was lovely, warm and so moving, and Scarlett incorporated it within her plot like a true author smoothly and just so damn believable I think this added such a deeper depth to the character of Tamsyn and I just wanted to squeeze the hell out of her because it made me so freaking emotional And of course, let s not forget the whole wedding theme, right What girl doesn t love a wedding I certainly do, and the wedding that was about the happen in Poldore was just brilliant Scarlett chose a fabulous way to include some dramatics and catastrophe within her novel by letting loose the worse storm that Poldore has seen in years Not only did this throw all plans up into the air but I was very intrigued as to how Scarlett s characters were going to overcome the chaos that was thrown their way I really don t want to ruin the story for any would be readers out there by giving the entire plot away, but believe me when I say that this is definitely one to add to the ever growing to read list It was beautiful, heart warming and just downright gorgeous From the idyllic setting to the multitude of fabulous characters, Two Weddings and a Baby is definitely one to add to your summer reading pile Becca s Books is handing over five delicious cupcakes to Scarlett Bailey Not only do we get to catch up with Ruan and his wife to be but we are also invited to their wedding And Tamsyn I guess you could call her a fairy god mother Well done Scarlett, I loved it Nice light hearted easy read but a bit predictable. First book I have read from Scarlett Bailey and it was definately not a disappointment Even though it was a little predictable I couldn t help thoroughly enjoying the storyline and the characters So many laugh out moments as well which just made me enjoy itGreat read. from reluctant bridesmaid to accidental mother tamsyn has returned reluctantly from paris to her home town of poldore to be a

story, really well told, with familar and new characters merging seamlessly and both characters and setting vividly drawn One much loved character is still at centre stage the wonderful Buoy the dog, a little older and quieter, but still overflowing with doggy personality and carrying out his everyday acts of heroism.I absolutely loved it, and devoured it in one glorious sitting This really is chick lit at its very best superbly written, real characters to engage with, the romantic elements combined with a rollicking good story, a vivid sense of place When you pick it up, I guarantee you

hits the village and pushes them all closer together, helping each other and trying everything to make the wedding still possible It also brought Jed, the vicar, and Tamsyn closer together Their chemistry was something special from the start The two of them being very different, with different believes made it difficult for them to see the truth However, the most important thing was for them to see in the same direction concerning love Well, let s just say it was an interesting journey of passion, feelings, the past and finding their true self.Jed was a great character, not a typical vicar and very very gorgeous I think he s perfect for Tamsyn new book boyfriend 3Well, the thing I enjoyed most about the book was reading about Alex and Ruan again I loved their story and it found a

hold up my hands and admit that I ve not read any of the previous Scarlett Bailey novels, but I do adore the books that she writes under her real name of Rowan Coleman I m not sure how I ve missed these books before, I m guessing that it s because they ve all been Christmas themed and although I always intend to read themed books in December, I rarely get around to it I m sorry Scarlett Rowan,

previous novels Just For Christmas I didn t realise that, and it certainly doesn t matter this is easily read as a standalone story.Tamsyn Thorne has returned to her home town of Poldore in Cornwall for her brother s wedding It s clear that there is some bad feeling between them and the reader soon learns why Tamsyn is a strong character, she says exactly what pops into her head, pulling no punches and often offending but I liked that I especially loved the conversations between Tamsyn and her twin four year old nephews What do you want from me I ve got no sweets, no toys, no money, nothing I m no good to you To be honest, I d rather wear something nylon and with an elasticated waist than go anywhere near your sleeping bag You have the personal hygiene habits of, well, a four year old boy, to be fair Tamsyn s return to Poldore is the beginning of a warm, funny and very entertaining read Expertly paced, the writing flows so well and the characters are really vivid and recognisable as real human beings warts and all.As Tamsyn arrives home, so does a violent and quite terrifying storm that affects the whole town, also making an appearance is a sexy and fairly mysterious vicar and a one day old baby girl who floats upon the floodwater in a Moses basket.I m not going to go over the plot, but suffice to say it contains a little bit of everything and works very well there are family relationships, romances, rivalries and jealousies, old scores, new loves, storms, babies and oh those twins Two Weddings and a Baby is a story with a bit of a wallop and I enjoyed every excellently written page, I hope that Scarlett Bailey decides to writeabout the residents of Poldore I d love to find out This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view
