When newlywed Penny turns her hand to some casual wedding planning she only wants to help other women afford the big day of their dreams.
But taming bridezillas turns out to be a full-time occupation, and what began as a hobby becomes a personal and professional nightmare.
Soon Penny is struggling to keep her day job and prevent her own marriage from collapsing under the strain: tired, stressed and knee-deep in ivory satin, is Penny’s life and livelihood hanging by a thread?
Thank you to Quercus for very kindly sending me a review copy. If you’re reading this review, please not that Don’t Tell The Groom is the first in the series and Don’t Tell The Boss is the second. I’m hoping for a third. Hint hint to Anna…
It was an absolute delight to be back in Penny’s crazy world. She’s always full of life and I love reading about her. Her personality is highly infectious and she’s the type of friend everyone would love to be around. Quite frankly, there’s never a dull moment with Penny. In the second book, she’s started to make a name for herself with an online Wedding blog which is full of tips and interactions with her readers. It was brilliant to read about Penny marvel in something she truly loves.
The blog posts are the beginning of each chapter were brilliant and it allowed readers to remember that Penny is truly wedding crazy. In chapter two, I guessed a little aspect of the book and turns out, I was right. I’m not saying “it’s an obvious plot,” but I had a small incline of where it would possibly lead to and I was spot on. But that’s what I love about Anna’s books, she gets the readers involved and thinking without them even realising it.
Before I knew it, I was at the end of the book and I’d barely made any review notes. It was a true Chick-Lit book and if you don’t race out to your local Waterstones today to purchase it, well it’s your loss. I really do hope Anna writes another Penny book.
