    4. Although this is the second book in The House on Camden Square series it absolutely can be read as a standalone novel but to be honest WHY WOULD YOU?! Ruby Tuesday was the first in the series of books that have played with my emotions and made my mascara run and I would love it if you started with that one so you can meet the friends and get some more background on them. And then if you enjoy Ruby Tuesday you will HAVE to read Nice Day for a White Wedding as I think it is…EVEN BETTER! A.L. Mic [...]

    5. Nice Day For A White Wedding is the second book in the House on Camden Square series, but thankfully it can be read as a standalone book, ideal for anyone looking for an exciting read with humour, sadness and a fantastic backdrop. The first book in the series Goodbye Ruby Tuesday is worth a read as it's both a good story but also gives a great introduction to the characters but not absolutely necessary if you just want to read this one. Following the story of Chelsea Donnolly, the reader is take [...]

    6. *Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*Nice Day for a White Wedding is the second book of Andi’s The House on Camden Square series. I haven’t read the first book of the series, but that was ok. I think it just took me longer to get into the book, because I had to get to know the characters first. I didn’t have the whole picture, which made it a bit harder and I think it’s probably a different reading experience if you have read the first book.Chelsea is in a really [...]

    7. Nice Day for a White Wedding is the second book in the House on Camden Square series, and this time tells the story of Chelsea and her boyfriend Kit. I really loved what I’d read from both these characters in the first book of the series and Chelsea’s past was already something I was intrigued by so this book ticked quite a few boxes for me. Nice Day for a White Wedding realistically draws upon the ways many people feel about their past and their upbringing and how no matter how hard you try [...]

    8. I have been following A.L. MIchael's writing career since she published 'The Last Word' and she has become an author I turn to when I need some feisty, female driven fiction to lift me up. I've ended up rationing her books for this reason!

    9. Guys, A.L. Michael has very quickly become one of my favourite authors this year. I absolutely loved the other two books of hers I’ve read (If You Don’t Know Me By Now and the first The House on Camden Square book Goodbye Ruby Tuesday). I still have a few of her other books to read (yay for me!) and she’s one of those authors whose stories you can just slip into. I very rarely get caught up in third-person books, there can sometimes be a detachment there, but both A.L. Michael & Victor [...]

    10. "Nice Day for a White Wedding" is a second book in The House on Camden Square series, and even though I haven't read the first book, I didn't have any problems to get directly into the heart of this story - I'd say it could easily be read as a standalone book. There were some flashbacks into the past but to be honest they only roused my curiosity what happened then, so I'll be for sure reading "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday" sooner rather than later. The story follows Chelsea. It very quickly becomes cle [...]

    11. I received an electronic copy of this book for free from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. It was the second in a series by A.L. Michael. I loved the first one and loved this one too. I really enjoyed learning more about Chelsea. This was a cute, feel-good book. I look forward to reading the third in the series.

    12. I really enjoyed reading Goodbye Ruby Tuesday which is the first book in The House on Camden Square series. So I was wondering if the next book in the series would be just as good. So what did I thinkMy attention was caught straight away and I felt as if no time had passed since reading Goodbye Ruby Tuesday, it was like revisiting old friends. I have to admit in the first book it took me a while to take to Chelsea. I felt more of a connection to Mollie and Evie out of the three friends but that [...]

    13. Nice Day for a White Wedding was the first A.L. Michael book I ever read, but after speeding through this warm, witty and feel-good romp, it certainly won’t be my last!Growing up on a council estate, Chelsea Donnolly’s prospects were pretty bleak. Like most of her peers, Chelsea was meant to end up saddled with a dead beat husband and eking out an existence working in a dead end job while trying to stay out of trouble with the law. But Chelsea has always liked to defy expectations. Much to e [...]

    14. ​Another fabulous book in this series, I really enjoyed the first one but think I loved this one even more, even though Chelsea wasn't my favourite character from the previous book.As before, the story is about four friends from school, who all lived on a really rough estate, who had dreams of getting out and making it big in their various ways.This book is about Chelsea and her partner Kit. Chelsea had a really hard life growing up. Her Mum is a horrible person and doesn't care about any of h [...]

It can easily be read as a standalone, and this time features Chelsea as the starring character.

    16. Nice Day for a White Wedding is the second instalment in The House on Camden Square series, this time focusing on Chelsea Donovan, aka Chelsea Donnolly from the estate – Badgeley’s success story, bad girl turned Oxford graduate. You can find my review of the first instalment, Goodbye Ruby Tuesday here.Whilst this could arguably be read as a standalone, please don’t as you won’t appreciate what the girls have already been through together both 10 years ago and now, or really understand wh [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this book. It was quite a light read and even though it is book 2 in a series I didn’t actually notice. I like this because it means that the story can be enjoyed as a standalone or as the series. Without reading the first book I can’t say whether I will have missed details and information but I don’t feel like I did on the whole. It was an easy story to grasp and I think Chelsea is quite a relatable character for a lot of people. The way of her childhood being unhappy and [...]

    18. All reviews can be found on my blog at thewritinggarnet.wordpressThis is one series of books that I have been extremely excited about, unfortunately though, the author has had me pestering her wondering when I would be able to read more! It is also bittersweet as the next book is the last one in the series, sniff sniff. That said, what better way to turn your frown upside down, than with a wedding. Right? As Billy Idol says ‘it’s a nice day, for a white wedding’!In this book we follow Chel [...]

    19. Chelsea was a former bad girl from the estate [ which was like a slum] she got her self into Harvard and she know is a business executive. But Chelsea keeps her past hidden. Chelsea’s mother Carly was not a nice person at all and she did not care about her kids. Chelsea’s father is an ex- con and in and out of jail right now he is out. Chelsea changed her last name so she wouldn’t be linked with her father. Chelsea keeps her past from everyone including her boyfriend who she has been with [...]

    20. This is book 2 in The House on Camden Square series. I enjoyed the first book, Goodbye Ruby Tuesday but i have to say i enjoyed this one even more. Here we focus on Chelsea Donovan, once a bad girl who grew up on an estate, with a useless mother who only cared about herself and a father who is in and out of prison. Chelsea cared deeply about her brothers and has always felt bad for leaving them behind. After changing her surname and wanting more from life she is now a business executive. She doe [...]

    21. Last week when I was teasing and rambling about the first book in the series, Goodbye Ruby Tuesday, I mentioned that at the time I wasn't so sure about Chelsea but was holding out hope for her. Well, by the end of that book I had warmed up to her a bit and right now I'm absolutely loving Chelsea and I totally get why it was kind of necessary that I spent so much time being unsure of her.Poor Chelsea. She spent so much time and effort trying to put her past behind her and become new and improved [...]

    22. This is only the second book I've read by A.L. Michael and I've come to appreciate what a joy and delight they are. Once again I feel inspired, optimistic and happy after reading this book.Nice Day for a White Wedding is book 2 in The Camden Square series. I would encourage readers to read book 1 first as you get to appreciate how the characters got to where they are now.This story focuses on Chelsea's life, we time hop back to when she was a teenager living on the rundown estate, her friendship [...]

    23. This review was first published at M's Bookshelf - mssbookshelfFrom the outset, it's clear that there's more to Chelsea Donnolly than meets the eye. She's a contradiction that's both impressive, and could almost give you a headache - imagine how she feels! Bad girl gone good? If only it was as simple as that.Everything about her childhood and teenage years and environment screams "give up". But she didn't. Not only does she fight for what she wants, she's strong, sassy and independent. I love a [...]

    24. This is a much more serious book than the cover implies= and that's a good thing. Chelsea pulled herself away from her roots, went to Oxford, and developed a real career but never ever let go of caring for her little brothers. Kit initially seems terrific but then Chelsea meets his family and, well, all their differences are exacerbated by one of the evilest mother-in=laws-to-be in recent memory. Liked the way Michael rolled her back story out slowly; I didn't even realize there was a book one u [...]

    25. Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for this copy.Looking at the reviews I'm probably the only person who didn't enjoy this book. I hadn't read the first one, so perhaps this is why I didn't connect with any of the characters. I thought it was going to be a feel good chick lit book, but it wasn't. There is quite a lot of bad language in it, and it feels like quite a dark book. I didn't really like the writing, for me it didn't flow very well. Chelsea comes across in parts as a shy meek thi [...]

    26. 'Nice Day for a White Wedding' was a great read! I loved A.L. Michael's writing style, it flowed beautifully and kept me engaged in the story the whole time. I really loved the strength Michael created in Chelsea, evoking such emotion from me when she was in the presence of Kit's awful family. I love when an author can make me hate characters and it made the drama in the story quite real. Also, the setting was quite beautiful as well. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more i [...]

    27. Cannot get enough of this series its like meeting up with old friendsWhen I read that there was a sequel to goodbye ruby Tuesday I couldn't wait to read it.It was so lovely to catch up with all the girls again. The storyline was so different from what I was expecting. I loved getting to know more about chelsea and kit and Celia and Tyler although this Is a series it could be read as a stand alone book. Can't wait for the next one.

    28. ReviewI absolutely loved this book. It had me laughing and crying all at the same time. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series, which hopefully won't be too long coming out.

    29. eARC: NetgalleyGreat book! So much more than just a simple romance. Can't wait to read more about these great characters.
