    One thought on “Four Weddings and a White Christmas”

    1. 5 Words: Christmas, weddings, design, food, family.I love Cherry Pie Island. I'm definitely going to miss my regular trips.This book really did have a very "final" feel about it. A bit like the end of an era. But it's not all sad. In fact, this is a very uplifting story full of happy endings and guaranteed to make you smile. And it's absolutely perfect for Christmas.This book made me so hungry though. All of that food!Despite this being part of a series, it could easily be read as a standalone, [...]

    2. I'm sorry to say that although I read the first of the Cherry Pie Island series, I somehow missed out on reading the others, and at the point I spotted this Christmas book, I just haven't had the time to go back and catch up, and decided to see how much it mattered that I had missed out on parts of the series. Thankfully Four Weddings and a White Christmas does work as what I have to assume is the series finale, to Cherry Pie Island, as a standalone. From my point of view, its a lovely story hig [...]

    3. I really can't believe that "Four Wedding and a White Christmas" is already the fifth book in the "Cherry Pie Island" series! I also can't believe that I've only read the first instalment, "The Grand Reopening of Dandelion Cafe", which I, by the way, truly, truly loved. So I really have no idea why I didn't read the other stories in the series - shoot me :) Of course I can see now that it wasn't a wise decision to read "Four Weddings and a White Christmas" before reading all the previous parts - [...]

    4. I can’t believe this is the fifth book in this delightful series! It all started with ‘The Grand Reopening of Dandelion Café in March 2015. You don’t need to have read them all to appreciate this delectable continuation of the sagas of folks from this island. In this story, there are four fantastic weddings as folks from the island marry - but not all on the island.This is a delightful festive read - though events take place throughout the year. The thawing of the male lead, Harry, is bri [...]

    5. This was a lovely festive return to Cherry Pie Island. Although this is part of a series, it could be enjoyed as a great Christmassy stand alone read. Hannah is designing wedding dresses for some of the local brides and you get caught up in the family atmosphere getting the dress ready for the first brides big day. She also meets Harry, who is a chef working in America. Their first meeting doesn't go that well- but there is a spark between them and it's great to see a relationship possibility ru [...]

    6. Although this book is the fifth in a series I hadn't read any of the preceding ones and it didn't spoil my enjoyment of it at all. A very cosy, comforting read that takes place over the course of a couple of years but where Christmas is the focal point for biggest events. Best enjoyed with a mug of mulled wine whilst listening to Bing Crosby I would think, tucked up under a cosy blanket. Lovely portrayal of a close family, some great fashion and description of the slow build of a relationship.

    7. 3 words - Family, Christmas, HopeI really enjoyed this book, It is a wonderful easy read. It has a lot of content really lovely and cute characters and a festive warm feeling to it. I read this book wanting to know what was going to to happen between Hannah and Harry. I loved both the characters both so different yet so very similar. I can honestly say I LOVED this book and i will definitely be reading this again!

    8. The fifth and final Cherry Pie Island book introduces an altogether new character. Hannah has a little girl and has just recently started designing her own clothes. Word gets out and she ends up designing the wedding dresses for all of our four Cherry Pie Island women. Having a child, falling in love and taking risks isn't exactly on her to do list. So when she gets to design all these dresses she is over the moon. If there just wouldn't be Harry who is all about taking risks and never being tie [...]

    9. Deliciously DelightfulThis cute little romance doesn't at all feel like a romance story, which is what I love. The title reminds me of the Four Weddings and a Funeral movie with Hugh Grant, but the story is really engaging in a light yet realistic way. The relationships between characters are relatable, even the parental ones. I enjoyed the events all happening with the backdrop of wedding and Christmas season festivities. Looking forward to more books by this author.

    10. This is the fifth, and I suspect the final book in the Cherry Pie Island series. In this one four of our couples are married, not all at once, but serially. It's a sweet series but pretty light and frothy. It includes a lot of food and fashion. This could easily be read as a stand alone, but if you enjoyed any of the rest of the series, might as well save it for last.

    11. Harry and Hannah both have to find their own way in life. They come from very different worlds. But learning what you really want in your life can be quite a journey. The characters are real, well written and likeable. Cute story.

    12. At first, a bit confusing, but the I had to see what was going to happen. I gave it 3 stars due to the confusing beginning. It gets better.

    13. Brilliant storyAn enjoyable book. Easy read that I didn't want to put down. A good storyline with a feel good factor.

    14. Having not realised this was actually the final book of the Cherry Pie Island series, I started reading and instantly connected with the characters and their tales, there's enough detail given to understand who's who and who they are marrying etc. That said, I would like to point out at this stage, this is a really good book, and the story reads perfectly well as a standalone book.Hannah is a lovely character, she's just finished her degree and making her way in the world of fashion, her mum pro [...]

    15. 3.5 stars. When did this series get so big? I read the first book back in May when it had just come out, now it’s October and this is the fifth installment – and I had no idea the others existed! Luckily the books don’t have to be read in order and each story can stand alone, else I’d be lost. However, with this book in particular, I think some knowledge of the other stories will help, because those weddings in the title provide lovely glimpses of the previous happy couples. (The ceremon [...]

    16. Welcome back to Cherry Pie Island the most delicious place to spend Christmas!This time, it is Hannah turn to tell her story. Hannah usually spends her Christmas nibbling chocolate coins, sipping a stewed tea or arguing with her sister whether they are too old for stockings on Christmas morning. But this year, she has been offered the dressmaker's dream job: creating a one-of-a-kind dress for her school friend Annie's Christmas wedding. But then one thing leads to another and Hannah discovers th [...]

    17. This was a delightful story full of romance, family life and some humour. Apparently it is the fifth book in the Cherry Pie Island series which brings the main characters from the previous four books together, but I have not read any of them and I still enjoyed this bookThe main character in the story is Hannah. She is a talented dressmaker/dsigner, who has just finished getting her degree, and is offered the chance to make Annie's Christmas wedding dress. Based on this success, she gets further [...]

    18. I received this book from NetGalley.I've been in the mood for some light romance and some Christmas reading. I don't know why. It's not even Halloween. Maybe it's because of the recent shooting here in Oregon, and I just needed some happy, sappiness. Four Weddings and a White Christmas by Jenny Oliver was a pretty fun read and generally I liked it. The key thing is that it was really light and not a lot of deeper emotional stuff.So the story, as you might have guessed, revolves around four weddi [...]

    19. First reviewed at Keeper BookshelfWhat an absolutely charming and delicious Christmas story, as well as a return to Cherry Pie Island.Spend some time with the wonderful mix of residents on Cherry Pie Island as they prepare for not only four separate weddings but a beautiful Christmas celebration as well. Hannah is neck deep in wedding dress materials as she creates wedding magic for not only her best friend, but three other brides to be. Expect chaos, laughter, tears and some lovely couples who [...]

    20. Four Weddings and a White Christmas is the 5th book in the series but I have not read any others at the time of reading this book. This book was an easy heartwarming read. I found that the characters were developed well and that the story of each of them intertwined nicely.This book centered on main characters Hannah, her 5 year old daughter Jemima, and Harry. Four Weddings take place over a period of a year with Hannah being a piece of the magic for each of them. As of the first wedding Harry a [...]

    21. This was ok. If you like reading about dress designs then this would be a good book for you. As the title states, 4 weddings happen in this book and for me it was hard to keep the characters straight. 4 different couples along with Hannah and her family and then Harry and his family; just a lot of characters. Now don't get me wrong; the book has a great message. Hannah didn't really have a plan for her life. She gets pregnant 5-6 years before the book begins, she doesn't know the father but she [...]

    22. I liked the characters in the book. Some of the characters seemed a bit pointless. A good example is her sister and brother and his partner. I can only guess that they featured a lot in the previous books so had to make an appearance here. I liked Hannah mostly for the fact that she did not let her situation as a single mum stop her from chasing her dreams. Also I like that she did not settle for anything but the best. Sometimes we tend to settle for what is in front of us because we think we ca [...]

    24. This book perfectly combines fashion and cooking around weddings and Christmas! Hannah the dressmaker designs wedding dresses, party dresses and theme dresses for herself and her friends — so fun to read the fabric descriptions and “see” the final product in my mind. Jenny Oliver did an outstanding job using precise detail to paint the picture – or sketch the designs, as the case may be. Hannah thinks she’s happy, until she feels chemistry with brooding, work-obsessed, famous chef Harr [...]

    25. I love this time of year because books like this one come out! This was such an easy read, the characters were really well written. At first I was a bit confused with so many different characters, but as I read further I got to know each one and really got into the story.I enjoyed that each of the weddings featured was given their own part in the book, and that Hannah was integral to each one in some way.I actually loved the character of Harry most of the way through. There was one particular po [...]

    26. Another visit to Cherry Pie Island!The story takes place over 4 linked weddings. Hannah is an emerging fashion designer and the weddings are linked by her dress designs. She meets Harry, our reluctant hero, at the first wedding and then at the subsequent ones.I found the whole story delightful! Two socially awkward people, obviously attracted to each other, but no idea how to resolve it! Being a bit like that myself, I could easily sympathise with them!It was lovely to watch Hannah grow in confi [...]

    27. Christmas! Don,t we all love it?????Another lovely Christmassy story. I loved how Jenny wrote of the clothes Hannah made - her descriptions brought to life an image of beauttiful garments! The storey was great too of course - wondering if it too could be a "Happy Ever After" I like Jenny Olivers books and recommend it to all lovers of Chriatmas and stuff That goes with it!!!

    28. This was the final story in the Cherry Pie Island Series and I have to say that I have loved each of them. Each book is about a different friend but I love the fact that they all overlap, so you can still keep up with their stories.
