Review: Thirteen Weddings by Paige Toon
Another scintillating tale from the bestselling author of The Longest Holiday and Lucy in the Sky.
Last year, Bronte left Sydney for a wedding in England, where she met newly single Alex. After a night of passion they parted ways, and Bronte returned to Australia.
Now working on a picture desk for a magazine in London, Bronte is about to meet her new colleague, who turns out to be all too familiar. Although awkward at first, as Alex is now engaged to the girl he was on a break from when they met, they soon become friends.
But as the two get closer, and the wedding day looms, it is clear that Alex and Bronte have unfinished business
I am a massive Paige Toon fan have recently discovered her books earlier in the year and then reading her entire backlist in the space of a week.
I loved this book as much as her previous for a variety of reasons. Firstly I love the characters that Paige writes. They are easy to relate to and you find yourself really rooting for them. This was definitely the case for Bronte. I adore the cameos within Paige's books of characters from her previous novels in an incredibly geeky way and this book includes them so I loved it. The story line itself was engaging throughout and I needed to keep reading to see how things would turn out for Bronte.
