Review: Wedding Bells at the Signal Box Cafe by Annette Hannah

Here comes the bride...

Lucy Woods has always dreamed of running her very own wedding venue. After moving her eight-year-old son to the countryside she's surprised to find the perfect location and her best friend, Abbie, eager to help make that dream a reality! Too bad Abbie's older brother Dominic isn't keen on Lucy or their big idea!

As a divorce lawyer Dominic doesn't believe in love at first sight or wedding vows, he's seen them broken more times than he can count. But when Lucy arrives back in town, his hardened heart begins to crack.

Making her dream come true is a huge undertaking, but Lucy knows that The Signal Box Café is her chance to finally make something of her life. If only the irritating (and oh-so-gorgeous) Dom didn't make her imagine wearing a white dress and walking down the aisle...

Can Lucy and Dominic find a way to each other this summer or will the wedding bells chime for another couple?

Review: Oh this book gave me some serious butterflies of my own. It is funny and romantic and provided some lovely escapism from the world right now. 

I loved getting to meet Lucy and her determination to follow her dreams. She is a guarded person except when it comes to her family, she will do anything for them. I loved her gumption but also the fact that she was a little bit scared to let people in. 

She moves into her grandfather’s cottage whilst he is recuperating in order to help him and he is such a character. There are some real laugh out loud moments when it comes to his care home and the other residents there. Take care you're not taking a sip of your coffee at that point because you will be spitting it out. 

Then there is the romance. I loved this enemies to lovers kind of trope we had going on and it was achingly slow getting to a point where anything was going to happen for Lucy, due to the prickliness of the man in question but also due to her own stubbornness. I really enjoyed reading these scenes and found myself racing through some of the signal box cafe moments in order to read more of the romance!

I enjoyed this book and enjoyed being able to read something from one of the nicest people in the blogger world. I can’t wait to see what Annette Hannah writes next!
