About the Author

I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things French. When I’m not on Facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

Jane Linfoot is telling us the story of a little Cornwall village and some of its inhabitants as they navigate returns to their hometowns, find love and careers, and even make some new friends along the way. This is Lily’s story, she’d left town, married and built a wonderful career away from St. Aiden Bay – until the hotel chain made her job redundant, she and her husband split, and she’d returned simply to attend a wedding and visit with friends. All around St. Valentine’s Day. Expecting a compatriot in Jess – another “I don’t need a man” sort of woman, she isn’t prepared for the interest she acquires after landing in the Lily Pond behind the pub during a wedding reception. With Immie soon to walk up the aisle with hot fireman (and former bridezilla’s fiancé), no job, a ruined suit and good friend Poppy stressed out over a newly announced wedding venue in direct competition with her own Daisy Hill Farm wedding venue, there are no shortages of goings-on. And then, Lily’s mother comes over the radio as part of a Brides by the Sea shop promotion on the radio – in which she is engaged! Bad enough that Lily had no clue, but when she met the new hubby to be, in skinny jeans with her mother in varying day-glo workout wear (an unheard of change), Lily is finding herself in the middle of her mother’s plan to match her up with a local developer, Fred. Oh gods this was fun – from a local boy returning to the local great house in disgrace after a failure of the family firm with an idea to use the venue as a wedding site after Sera’s sister’s spectacular wedding months earlier. With a giant billboard, massive plans and ideas without the first clue of how to implement them, a walled garden perfect for Lily to grow her mother’s bouquet (a request), and a take-no-prisoners attitude toward competition, the game is afoot. It takes Jess with a plan to keep Lily around while expanding the business into planning, and hiring Lily out to keep an eye on the new venture. The story, layered with twists, turns and laughs is classic Linfoot – you care about these characters, and can read about them and their lives and if you are like me, have every book on your shelf to read and reread when you need to find that place of comfort. I have ALL of her books in eBook, and every paper copy I can get my hands on, and have read each story at least twice. If you enjoy a story that is full of friendship, possibilities and plenty of heart – grab this one now. I purchased a copy of the title for my own library without requirement or expectation of review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

It’s summer and wedding season, coincidentally while reading this the UK was enduring a heat wave! So Summer at the Little Wedding Shop was the ideal book to read while I sipped cool drinks in the shade. Now I may be a little biased (ok a lot) but Cornwall is the best place for the setting of this story. It’s wonderfully laid back and still catching up with places like London, so the prospect of a wedding shop with all it’s fancy flowers and wedding planners etc is delightful. Poor Lily is having a bit of a crisis, losing her job and accommodation means she accepts the offer to return to her former employer Brides by the Sea. She is highly experienced with flowers but can she cope with planning weddings as well? If falling into a pond and earning herself the nickname Water Lily is anything to go by she may struggle! I loved the scene where Lily listens to the radio around Valentine’s Day and to her dismay hears her mother .. a real giggle moment. Lily is a likeable character, she wouldn’t hurt anybodies feelings but things get a bit tense when she has to work with local guy Kip to arrange an event. He is direct competition with her friend Poppy so her loyalties are torn. She split from her husband so is anti-men .. can Kip ignite a little flame …. or is there a chance to catch a bouquet or find love .. read to find out. With three weddings to organise there is bound to be a few hiccups along the way! There is so much light fluffy content, friendship, humour, mouth watering food to tempt the reader, a real sense of awe at some of the preparations required for a wedding. The highs and lows, pretty dresses, flowers .. in fact anything that makes one feel summery and loved-up. Jane has a knack which allows the words to flow easily and make you keen to read and see what happens to these people she has created and invited you to care about. Summer at the Little Wedding Shop is the third in a series but it is perfectly possible to read and enjoy it as a standalone .. by why would you want to miss the others? Absolutely stunning and likely to be one of the books of summer 2017. My thanks to Jane, Harper Impulse and Netgalley for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Lily gets a job offer she can't refuse, she's being asked to become the new wedding stylist of Brides by the Sea. That means she's back with her former employer, but this time she has much more responsibility. She has plenty of experience, especially with flowers, but has never styled a wedding before. Will she be able to manage? She doesn't even have time to worry, because the first request to help out a demanding bride comes in straight away. Lily's supposed to work together with Kit, the direct competition of her best friend Poppy. Lily doesn't want to be disloyal, but she doesn't have a choice if she wants to keep her customers happy. Kit needs Lily's help, but she only reluctantly gives it. He's offering the family manor as a wedding location to happy couples, but he has no idea what he's doing. He needs guidance and advice, but every time Lily tells him something she feels guilty because of Poppy. It's a great season for weddings and Lily has plenty of customers. Meanwhile she has to keep an eye on Kit. Will she be able to be successful at her job, so she can give her friends, family and clients everything they dream of? Summer at the Little Wedding Shop: Bunting & Bouquets is a wonderful romantic story. Lily is a bit insecure, while she's fabulous, she can be prickly in an endearing way and she has a heart of gold. She's always there for the people who need her and with her clever and creative ideas she often saves the day. She's capable and driven and I liked her very much. I love all the women of Brides by the Sea and enjoy reading about their adventures, which Jane Linfoot describes in a lighthearted humoristic way. Their precious friendship is a joy to read about, which makes the books extra special. Kit's behavior often irritates Lily. She isn't happy with his new business plan and she thinks his family can't take anything seriously and will destroy people if that is what's most convenient for them. Kit has a lot to prove and I loved how tenacious and patient he is. He has a great sense of humor and he's a kind and caring person. I immediately liked the chemistry between Kit and Lily, they clearly have a deep connection and I couldn't wait to find out more about both their history and future and flew through the pages because of this. Jane Linfoot's settings are absolutely amazing. Brides by the Sea is warm and welcoming and it's a fantastic place to read about. Because of Jane Linfoot's expressive and sparkling descriptions the story comes to life incredibly well. The wedding venues are beautiful and I enjoyed reading about the preparations, the inevitable problems that arise at weddings and their solutions, the stunning dresses and the gorgeous garden of the manor with its colorful flowers. Summer at the Little Wedding Shop: Bunting & Bouquets is cheerful, charming, entertaining, heartwarming and fun. I really loved this terrific scintillating book.
