The Winter Wedding Plan brings us Charlotte’s journey as she works on rebuilding her relationship with her sister, Kate, and settles into motherhood. She’s working with Kate in her event planing company now and things for Charlotte are about to get interesting. As Kate’s own wedding is approaching Charlotte offers to take on a major holiday party plan. It will bring her into the circle of Greg Frost, and it will also put steps in place for her own future… should one man who doesn’t believe in love change his mind, and one fake engagement becomes the truly forever kind.
Charlotte has made mistakes. On the level of Julia Robert’s comment in Pretty Woman “Big mistake. Huge.” She’s been working on mending her relationship with her sister, as well as all the craziness of being a single mom to her adorable baby Audrey. It’s not easy, she knows it’s not going to be but she’s trying. This event will, in her mind, go a long way to show Kate that she can be trusted with something big. She didn’t see becoming pretend engaged to a handsome man in that future, but sometimes fate offers us things we never expected. As pretend slowly turns to real feelings Charlotte has even more on her plate. Watching Greg and Charlotte work their way into each other’s hearts was a sweet journey. Truth is Charlotte’s feelings of self worth, seeking redemption that has already been given and balancing baby, love life often leads her to not communicate or to not understand what someone else means. Often she is hurt from her own misunderstandings than from actual intent. Charlotte once made a huge mistake and she’s paid for it. Now she needs to learn, with a loving man and family around her, how to let go and enjoy the future that’s right in front of her.
I enjoyed The Winter Wedding Plan very much. A bit of romance, lots of sister and woman to woman relationship building and seeing one young woman come into her own worth and life… all of that makes a fantastic story. I’d highly recommend this story to any Romance reader. While strictly not necessary perhaps, I would recommend reading One Week To The Wedding as all the background you’ll need is there, plus it’s an amazing book as well.
