Bride Without A Groom Blog Tour

I am delighted to be hosting this Blog Tour as part of the "Wedding Season" during May and June on my blog. I mentioned to the author Amy Lynch that I wanted to read as many wedding themed books as I could during May and June and she very kindly agreed that I could take part in the blog tour! Thank you Amy!!

About the Author
Amy Lynch is an author of women’s commercial fiction and writing is her passion. She loves to write humorous romantic fiction, but not always with fairy tale endings! She has published fiction in magazines, and has worked in the charity sector for twelve years. She is married with two young children. When she is not writing, Amy can be found juggling school lunches and two Shetland pony-sized rescue dogs. Now, how’s that for multi-tasking? Amy is the author of two novels, Bride Without A Groom and Does My Bump Look Big In This? Her third novel is in progress. 

Single, coupled-up or married, this laugh-out-loud summer read is the perfect anecdote for the wedding season!
Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered, wedding cake. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for a first dance he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. She has fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?
There’s one teeny tiny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of a kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – Rebecca is a bride without a groom!

Well, what can I say about Rebecca, other than she would win any award for “Bridezilla of the Year” hands down but surely you should wait until you are asked first!! Although saying that, my husband never proposed to me properly so sometimes you have to take the bull by the horns (so to speak!).

There were some really funny bits in the book and one of my particular favourites was when Rebecca goes to a zumba class with her Mum. I love the way the author tells the story using Irish language and “feck” does pop up now and again and this always makes me laugh!

I did feel the middle of the book sometimes repeated itself but on the whole it was a light hearted, funny look at a woman who is just desperate to get married. Her intended, Barry seemed a bit of a drip, but in the end he did things his way and on his terms, which made Rebecca realise what she was doing and to slow down a bit!

I didn’t warm to Rebecca at all and found her quite irritating and the fact that she is so untidy would drive me mad! 

Even though Rebecca drove me potty sometimes, I did enjoy this book and it had some great laughs in it and would definitely like to read Amy's next book!! Well done Amy and thank you for letting me read it.
