Everything is going according to plan and as Erin’s parents live in Australia, she’s determined that she doesn’t need any help from either her family or Jay’s with her arrangements. She wants everything on their special day to be perfect, with lots of surprises for both families.
Then Jay’s parents arrive to take them out to lunch with the intention of discussing a few plans they also have for the wedding. Erin works for her uncle in his antique business and her biggest worry up until this moment has been coming across an unexpected spider. Now she has to contend with Jay’s mother and her determination that Jay doesn’t forget his Indian heritage, as well as beautiful, glamorous Nalisha, a woman from his past who arrives in the village supposedly to help find a way for Erin and Jay’s mother to somehow calmly incorporate their ideas.

Having been to a
‘fusion’ wedding a couple of years ago, I
was especially looking forward to reading this book, aware that the vibrancy of the ceremony and reception was extra-special. I wasn’t disappointed. Christina Jones manages to incorporate both cultures well in this book and the differences and problems that can arise at any wedding bubble away under the surface and occasionally explode. The characters are funny, clever and this book had the same feeling I always get with this author’s books that of warm, sunny days and the knowledge that I’m in for a treat when I settle down to read one.
