Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Summertime at the Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series so was delighted to receive an invitation to read and review this book.

About the Book: It’s Summertime at The Cornish Confetti Agency!
When Lexie Harrington is asked to co-ordinate Kat and Dylan’s ‘English village fête’ wedding, she’s determined that this time everything will go according to her carefully laid plans; no ice bucket challenges, no whoopee cushions, and absolutely no googly eyes attached to everything in sight!
With gorgeous journalist-cum-wedding columnist Theo Barker to offer a helping hand, Lexie is optimistic that she can deliver the fairy tale wedding her clients have always dreamed of…. until the best man Noah is targeted by a loose hosepipe, the wedding rings go walk-about, and his beloved scarlet Porsche takes on a distinctly unpleasant aroma.
Can Lexie and Theo uncover what’s behind the mysterious goings on, or will the Cornish Confetti Agency be forced to close its doors to the future brides and grooms of glorious Cornwall?
This second book in the Cornish Confetti Agency series has Lexie back planning another wedding, solving another mystery and hoping that things will go smoother than the last wedding. Kat and Dylan’s ‘English village fête’ wedding is taking place at the vicarage and the whole village will be invited. The best man, Noah, is not very well liked by the group, except for the groom, and someone has targeted him as the recipient of a series of practical jokes. As Lexie tries to sort out what is happening and ensure that nothing happens on the wedding day, she finds several people who are keeping secrets and have reason to get back at Noah. Theo is back in this outing, trying to help Lexie out as much as he can, but he also has a secret that he is keeping from Lexie. Marley, the owner of the Cornish Confetti Agency is also going to be home at the end of the month so Lexie has to decide what she will do at that time.
I love the relationships in these books. Freya and Jasper are back planning and working the weddings as well as adding a bit of humour. I love the closeness between them and Lexie as well as others in the village. The practical jokes played are hilarious and had me laughing out loud with the characters. I love reading about the chaos that seems to surround Lexie wherever she goes and how she is going to solve it. The romance between Lexie and Theo is so sweet. It is not in your face, but sweet and romantic. I love how it is developing and I am so looking forward to seeing what is next for them. The story is well developed and plotted. All the characters are well developed and I would love to meet each and every one of them, even Noah. I love how this story ended and set up a wonderful story for the next book in this series. Each wedding is so well planned and has such great themed activities, as well as delicious sounding food and beautiful flowers and decorations. If I ever get remarried, I would love to get married in Cornwall with my wedding planned by the Cornish Confetti Agency. I received a copy of this book upon request from Rachel’s Random Resources. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
About the Author: Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.
When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.
