It’s Christmas! And this year Cherry Pie Island is covered with confetti as well as snow – as the island gets set to celebrate four weddings, as well as the most picturesque Christmas in memory. Nowhere does a deliciously warm and wonderfully festive Christmas as Cherry Pie Island!
Welcome back to Cherry Pie Island…the most delicious place to spend Christmas!
Hannah’s holidays are normally spent nibbling chocolate coins with her daughter and arguing with her sister about whether they’re too old for stockings on Christmas morning. But this year, she’s been offered the dressmaker’s job of a lifetime: creating a one-of-a-kind a dress for her school friend Annie’s Christmas wedding on the picture-perfect Cherry Pie Island.
Many mince pies and one hot-pink organza dress later, Hannah is set to snuggle back into her old routine…until she discovers that there are three more weddings this winter – and not a dress in sight!
Four very different themes, four demanding brides and four parties spent avoiding chef Harry Fontaine, whose cynicism is as much a wedding day guarantee as confetti and cake. Hannah has her work cut out for her! Yet, with a sprinkling of snowflakes and Christmas magic, it could be that this is the year when miracles really do happen…if Hannah will let them.
Read on for my thoughts on Four Weddings and a White Christmas. No true spoilers, promise.
What an absolutely charming and delicious Christmas story, as well as a return to Cherry Pie Island.
Spend some time with the wonderful mix of residents on Cherry Pie Island as they prepare for not only four separate weddings but a beautiful Christmas celebration as well. Hannah is neck deep in wedding dress materials as she creates wedding magic for not only her best friend, but three other brides to be. Expect chaos, laughter, tears and some lovely couples who simply want their marriage vows ceremony to be unique to them and completely magical.
I’m not going to give away any of the fun and mayhem that putting together these wonderful events will bring to this community. But you should expect to run into friends from previous trips to Cherry Pie Island and to make new friends as well.
I enjoyed this visit so very much. And if a certain chef just might be thawing a bit, all the better. A story that is full of Christmas wonder and the love of those who are ready to pledge their lives together – and perhaps a little bit of romance for unsuspecting townsfolk. Discover for yourself the lovely people of Cherry Pie Island. I would highly recommend Four Weddings and a White Christmas for anyone who enjoys a small town setting, with interesting characters many who you’d probably recognize from your own life and the absolute magic of a Christmas wedding and celebration. I wouldn’t mind moving to Cherry Pie Island myself.
