*AD-gifted: I was gifted a copy of The Cornish Confetti Agency in exchange for this post
Today I’m on the blog tour for The Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James. What drew me to the book was the Cornish theme. I love to read anything with Cornwall mentioned. Especially at the moment, it reminds me of what’s out there down in St Ives a few miles down the road, ready to explore when we can get out. (St Ives is where The Cornish Confetti Agency is based)
The first in a new sun-filled series from the author of the Villa Limoncello trilogy.
Welcome to The Cornish Confetti Agency!
When the grand finale of Lexie Harrington’s catwalk show ends with a disastrous twist on the ‘ice bucket challenge’, she knew her highly-strung boss would fire her on the spot. What she wasn’t expecting was to bump into her fiancé cosied up with an attractive blonde in the restaurant opposite their apartment!
Desperate to escape her heartbreak, Lexie flees to her childhood home of St Ives to hold the fort at The Cornish Confetti Agency for her best friend Freya, leader of the yummy mummy network and firm believer in ‘happily ever afters’. Little did she know that delivering a Caribbean-themed wedding in sunny Cornwall would rival the fashion industry for drama, tantrums and mysterious goings on.
Who is responsible for dousing the bridesmaid’s dress with tomato ketchup? Or hiding the bride’s beloved Jimmy Choos? Or attaching googly eyes to everything in sight?
The perfect Cornish wedding? Is there such a thing for The Cornish Confetti Agency?
What I Thought
Set in beautiful St Ives, this novel drew me in right from the start. I can imagine a gorgeous Caribbean themed wedding set down there by the blue sea and golden sands.
It’s a Summer read for sure with food, sun, gossip, romance and mystery thrown in. It’s the first book in a series from Daisy James and I love it!
The main character is a lovable one called Lexie. She’s a hard working event planner that has a tough boss who expects the world. Something happens and he fires Lexie. She heads home to discover her fiance with someone else opposite their flat. At this point I’m devastated for her and want to give her a huge hug.
Luckily Lexie has a wonderful friend in Freya who invites her to go down to St Ives and give a hand with her business as a wedding planner for The Cornish Confetti Agency.
But the Caribbean themed wedding Lexie is planning is not as straightforward as she hoped when sabotage is on the cards.
I’m not going to say anymore without spoiling the whole plot for you. But you are in for a beautiful read of wedding talk filled, foodie treats in the stunning Cornish setting of St Ives – one of the counties own tropical beauty spots.
4 out of 5 stars.
