Publisher's Summary

Amazon best-selling author brings you Marrying Mr. Valentine!

Nadine Roberts smiles for everyone, but beneath it, she hides a heartbreaking past that few know about. Throwing herself into her new career as wedding planner at The Duck & Goose, a property recently purchased by newlyweds Florence and Hugh, has helped distract her from her loneliness.

When a teary bride suddenly cancels her upcoming wedding, Nadine looks to the two-year waiting list. Clara Blumenkrantz and Hartley Valentine. It’ll have to be a quick turnaround, but what’s the worst that can happen, right?

This should be like every other wedding she plans, but the magnetism she feels toward Mr. Valentine disrupts the orderly life she’s worked hard to carve out. 

Can she ignore her intense desires and be a professional? 

Or will she open up her heart to the one person that has the power to break it? And in doing so, endanger not just her job but her venue’s reputation?

Spoiler free review

this was a fun story to listen to. i mean, it had its emotional parts, but the overall was cute. I enjoyed the narrator, she was new to me. I love the British accent.

what a circus- three rings!!

I was expecting wild and crazy and got some real heart tuggers too. I empathized with Hartley, but wish he'd would have manned up sooner- like weeks ago!!! Clara was an awful person before thst last tidbit of info came out at
her wedding! Pot calling the kettle black . Great ending. The narrator did a good job.

Very cute and romantic!

This is a very cute romance! Nadine meets Hartley—the groom of one of her wedding planning clients—and hilarious sparks fly! Some of the humor is kinda gross and not for the faint of stomach. Tara-Louise Kaye kills it as a narrator!! Awesomely good! This audiobook was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

fun and sexy

This narrator was a perfect fit for this story. I really do love that Laura's heroines are always very real people who arent perfect but just regular women living their lives.
I found Hartley just as Divine as Nadine does. the ups and downs of the relationship as well as Nadines heartbreak with her former lover mad this feel real and I celebrated the end as I would with any close friend.

A good story.

A good story. The author does a good job of telling the story of a wedding planner falling in love.

Good narration. I would listen to books narrated by Tara-Louise Kaye again

The Wedding Planner

While it has been a long time since I saw the 2001 movie The Wedding Planner, this novel follows the sentiment; falling for the groom. Nadine's life seems to follow Murphy's Law in a humerus and easy going way. She is a woman with a heart of gold and good intentions with some serious losses in her past, making her jaded.

The narrator did an excellent job with all the character voices and while this was a first for me, I will certainly look for more books narrated by her.

Trigger warning: this book does deal with a baby being born a sleeping angel and the mothers grief after a few years.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and am proving my honest review voluntarily.

Made me laugh out loud!

This is the funniest, spicy romance book that I have heard in a long time! The characters are so realistic. I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogue as I could hear my girlfriends and I having the same conversations. Highly recommend this book!

Sweet heartbreaking happy

I always wonder how women cope with such a great loss. This story gives you one site.
Well written full of grief British humour and everything between.
the author does well building up the story and the narrator finish it. Well done.

3.5 Stars - Not my favourite Laura Barnard read

Not sure what didn’t work for me. The story, the characters or the narration. Either way I couldn’t relate to Nadine, I didn’t particularly like her, however, I did at times think she was funny. The good did not outweigh the bad though. As a wedding planner it appeared every wedding Nadine was a part of went completely wrong (personally I think she needs to change her career path), she had few morals, and wasn’t particularly nice. Then we have the groom to be, Hartley, he had no backbone, he was weak willed, and he appeared to be permanently grumpy. Add in bridezilla, Clara, and I thought the trio deserved each other. Sadly, not my cup of tea at all, which is a shame, because I have loved other books by the author.

amazing

You can feel the author puts her heart into the words she writes. Fully of humour and a whole lot of emotion. The book has us on a roller coaster. This is the perfect second book in the series. The covers are as beautiful as the writing. Highly recommend.

Loved it 💖💖

I loved this so much that I've listened to it twice 😍😍
I love reading Laura's books, but having them in audio is great, it means that when I'm shopping or walking the dog I get to listen to this amazing book.
I can't recommend this audio book enough, it's got everything you want, romance 😍, comedy, in fact sometimes I think it made me look a little insane in the frozen section when shopping 😂😂
This audiobook is definitely a 5 star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 plus absolutely love it and will be listening to it again because it's that good 💖💖💖💖
