Long and Short Reviews, (US) Sept 2013
Oh, what a joy it was
reading this story!
When I started to read it I
thought that it would be yet another predictable book about fake
boyfriends. I was wrong, very wrong to be exact. The Wedding Diary is
anything but predictable. So if you like
well written, funny, happy
and feel good romances,
go grab this one.

fabulous story of love, friendships & relationships that made me laugh
out loud. Fast-paced, hilariously funny. Impossible to resist,
The Wedding Diary proves
that, regardless of genre, if a book has got Margaret Jamesí name on the
cover, then a first-class read is guaranteed!
RT Book Review Magazine (US) July 2013: In this
and sometimes funny story, James portrays two
broken-hearted souls who connect and magically find a way to love again.
Most of the book has an offbeat, almost fairy-≠tale feel, but itís
uplifting and satisfying. James spins her story with hope in mind, and
her characters help us believe in castles in the air without
LoveReading From the author of a successful historical
romance trilogy, this is a

silver linings and second chances.

Such a Fantastic love story!
I absolutely loved The Wedding Diary!
The way I would describe it is that it is
such a happy read! I was genuinely delighted as I read it
and I always looked forward to returning to it on an
evening. The Wedding Diary is a fantastic story full of
love, romance, funny moments and happiness.

Rea, Rea Book Review This was a very fun and
light hearted read. Both Adam and Cat were
very well developed
who were both genuine and
lovable characters and you could see from the moment you met them that
they would be perfect together I was just hoping that the outcome of the
story was all I hoped it would be but it
turned out to be that and a whole lot more.
Anne, Being Anne Reading blogspot My 87 year
old mother tells me that The Silver Locket (free on Kindle
at time of writing) is one of the best books she's ever read
- sadly I can't endorse that because the book (along with
its sequels The Golden Chain and The Penny Bangle) is still
languishing on my Kindle, awaiting its turn. But I was
intrigued to see that Margaret James had written a book with
a present day setting, read it in two sittings, and have to
say I absolutely loved it. ...This is one I would highly
recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of escapism and
romance, but likes it really well written. Lots of funny
moments, highly entertaining and
a joy to read.

Bookalicious Travel Addict This book attracted
me from the start with its cover. Until I found this
publisher, Choc Lit publishing, I wasnít really a chic lit
kind of reader. I have to say so far Iíve not been
disappointed with any of the authors Iíve come across and
this book was no exception. ... The authors description of
people and places really brought them to life, and you just
romanticised as you read through the book. This is another
book that I read in two sittings. I have now bought the next
book by Margaret James, The Silver Locket, which is part of
a trilogy and I canít wait to get started on it.
