She’s found the perfect man. Will she get her perfect proposal?
Dog hotel marketing manager Alex has always dreamed of having a fairy-tale proposal: the glorious sunset, iconic backdrop and rose petals – the whole shebang. She’s found her Mr Right, and life with sexy paediatrician Miles is wonderful, except for one thing. Despite saying that he’s ready for marriage, Miles seems no closer to putting a ring on it.
After a romantic getaway to Paris ends in more disappointment and Alex receives news that sends her world into a spin, she decides that her dream proposal won’t just fall into her lap. So she hatches a plan.
Although she’s convinced her methods will lead to Miles popping the question faster than she can say ‘I do’, Alex’s friends warn her it will end in disaster. But a little bit of hint dropping can’t hurt, right?
Will Alex get her happily-ever-after, or is there a reason why Miles is dragging his feet?
Order this fun romantic comedy now and join Alex on her exciting adventures as she attempts to speed up the proposal process, with hilarious results!
When’s the Wedding? is the sequel to Only When It’s Love. It can also be read as a standalone novel.
My heart does go out to her though, she's in a perfect relationship, all the signs are pointing to serious commitment so where is the ring and when will it be her turn! Cue a proposal quest on the verge of sheer derangement and we have a storyline close to what happens here. My mouth dropped in 'oh no honey' reactions more than once or twice I must say but I was rooting for her happy ever after. Alex is a loveable character with her heart firmly worn on her sleeve and she absolutely deserves her fairytale but at what cost? Miles is an absolute dreamboat who I've loved since the moment I met him in book one.... for that reason I was tempted to push Alex out of the way and bag him for myself. But where is the romance in that? Clearly these two belong together but how far can a relationship be tested when the 'proposal blinkers' are firmly held in place?
This story has everything you could possibly want from a romance including probably one of the best proposals I've ever witnessed....there were tears and goosebumps and even a little air grab in triumph for good measure. I honestly didn't want it to end. This maybe book two but I'm still not ready to say bye to these characters just yet....I'm sure there's more to be heard from Alex and Miles in the future.....hint hint!!! So please do give this book all of the love that it deserves, I can promise you, you won't regret it.

About the book
As a man holds his wife's frail hand, he recounts a journey like no other...Daniel and Olivia are destined to be together. At least, Daniel thinks this the night he sees Olivia across a sea of people. As he backpacks through Australia, Daniel and Liv continue to cross paths, yet never speak. Until one night, Liv joins Daniel for a drink. And that night everything changes.
Back in London, stuck in a monotonous routine, Daniel finds himself daydreaming of the woman with green eyes and fiery hair. Armed with only a name he vows to find her, yet with every passing moment, Daniel's hopes begin to disappear. What if it wasn't meant to be?
But then fate steps in, and Daniel and Olivia’s story can truly begin...
This is a tale of serendipity, missed chances and the power of love.

True epic love stories, that will stand the test of time, don't come around very often. But when they do, boy do they take your breath away.....this is certainly one of those moments. The Night We Met threw everything and more at me in terms of love and life and I'm still trying to process the effect that this book has had on me.
The story captures your heart from the word go and I instantly knew I was in for an emotional roller coaster that would end only in tissues. The beautiful narrative doesn't reveal its treasures in a linear format instead it is woven together by patchwork memories that create a blanket so rich in emotion that I was moved to tears. You can feel every tiny nuance of detail that the author carefully places to allow Olivia and Daniel's love to burst off the page with fierce strength and I felt myself being pulled further into their story with the turn of each and every page.
I don't want to talk about the story in any detail as that would spoil the way the narrative is played out, which is a big part of the beauty of this book. Everything you need to know is in the book blurb but I urge you to dive in and soak up every last drop that this story has to give. As someone who has come out the other side I can safely say that this is one journey you do not want to miss. The heart and soul laid bare between those pages is raw and ready to be experienced. So grab your tissues, take a deep breath and jump in.
The Night We Met is a stunning love story that traverses the test of time showcasing strength, resilience and hope and I for one am changed for having read it. I'm a huge Zoe fan and this book was everything and more. A true treasure that will capture the hearts and souls of every reader.

Lost in Christmas Wonderland,
by Annabelle John-Ligali
When ten-year-old Bella Matthews and her mum, Isabel, visit Granny Sylta in the snowy village of Lakersfield for Christmas, it turns out there is more in store than just Christmas cake and a ton of presents.
When she arrives, she meets her cousin Rita and a boy called Tommy for the first time, and catches up with her friend Iris again too. Together they discover an exciting attraction is in town: A giant Christmas Wonderland Theme Park. They are dazzled by hundreds of decorated Christmas trees, a Musical Nativity, a Santa Parade, an Upside Down House, and many more attractions.
But Bella ends up having an unexpected adventure of her own as she dances with pot-bellied Santas, discovers a palace made entirely out of glass, wanders into an intriguing puzzle room, and treks for miles to find shelter on a snowy night.
Can Bella find her way back to Granny Sylta’s house in time for Christmas dinner?
Lost in Christmas Wonderland is a story about courage, kindness, friendship, the importance of family, and the magic of Christmas.
Annabelle is nine years old and lives in London. The inspiration for her book came after she visited Winter Wonderland in London’s Hyde Park in November 2019 with her mum, dad, little brother Andre, and Granny Sylta.
It was here she first saw an Upside Down House and had heaps of fun filming and visiting all of the rooms. Annabelle was so fascinated that she decided to vlog about it on her Youtube channel. Click here to watch the video.
Shortly after her visit, she thought how fun it would be to write a story about a girl who visits a Christmas theme park with some friends and goes on a little adventure.
Outside of school, Annabelle enjoys playing with her brother, vlogging about books she’s read, and places she’s visited. She also likes making up dance routines to songs that are trending on Tiktok. When she wants to have a giggle, she plays Guess Who with her mum.
Her favourite authors are Alesha Dixon, Trish Cooke, David Walliams, and Ben Miller. She also likes reading magazines like First News For Kids and Cocoa Girl. This is Annabelle’s first book, and she hopes you like it.

Finding Love at the Christmas Market by Jo Thomas
Residential-home caterer Connie has had one online-dating disaster too many. Hurt in the past and with her son to consider, now she's feeling hesitant. Then one of Connie's residents sets her up on a date at a beautiful German Christmas market - with the promise she'll take a mini-bus full of pensioners along with her...
Amongst the twinkling lights and smell of warm gingerbread in the old market square, Connie heads off on her date with a checklist of potential partner must-haves. Baker Henrich ticks all the boxes, but when Connie meets Henrich's rival William, she starts to wonder if ticking boxes is the answer.
The lead up to the big day, otherwise known as Christmas, is generally viewed with mixed emotions. Missed loved ones or lonely circumstances can hinder happiness that others find with sheer abandon. But in my opinion this story captures each and every one of these true emotions to perfection.
The Christmas celebrations creeped along at a cosy crescendo from the out set. But my word when the festivities presented themselves it was like a huge Christmas cracker to the face. Gluhwein here, gingerbread there, German markets in the middle and a sprinkle of love, hope and new wishes to wash it all down with. I fell in love, hook, line and sinker with this eclectic cast of characters and I was fully invested in their festive tale.
The writing was like a comforting cup of hot chocolate, warm, sweet and soothing and in my eyes a perfect pick me up for this 2020 time of year. I fully recommend this gorgeous read and I know you will all fall in love with the seasonal scents and aromas waiting for you between the pages. It's definitely a treasured tale not to be missed.
