Publisher's Summary

The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the presents are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married – and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day – she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays.

But the wedding isn't the only surprise – there is one more unexpected gift, and it could change all their lives for ever.

With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, The Christmas Wedding is a fresh look at family and the magic of the festive season.

Boring, boring, boring, totally "mills and boon"

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Everything, plot, characters, story sheer pulp

Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson again?

I adore James Patterson and I own or have read all of his books, however this one was a BIG disappointment. Not up to his normal standard

Which scene was your favorite?

None

Do you think The Christmas Wedding needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No I do not, I did not feel an empathy with any of the characters and I do not care what happened to them afterwards. it is important to relate to the characters in a book as I related to Alex Cross and his family

Any additional comments?

Just that I was disappointed with my favourite author
