Goodreads: At the first wedding, there’s a shock
The second wedding is unexpected
By the third, Delphie thinks nothing could surprise her. But she’s wrong . . .
Delphie is enjoying her brother’s wedding. Her surprise last-minute Plus One has stunned her family – and it’s also stopped any of them asking again why she’s still single. But when she sees all the missed calls that evening, she knows it can’t be good news. And she’s right.
Delphie has been living her best life, loving her job, her friends, her no-strings relationships and her dream house by the sea. Now she has to question everything she believed about who she is and what she wants. Is her mum right – is it time to settle down? Or does she want to keep on trying to have it all?
Each wedding of a glorious summer brings a new surprise. And as everything Delphie thought she had is threatened, she has the chance to reshape her future . . .
Ope’s Opinion: This is a slow moving story with details that are some times distracting from the story. The middle of the story stalled a little – keep reading.
I was invested in Delphie, as a strong, independent woman who has relationships ( male and female ) that are important to her, but don’t change who she is. She has a family that is very involved in her life.
I absolutely loved how Sheila decided to end the story. I would love to see her write another book about Delphie’s friends.
