Stepping in for a celebrity chef, Millie Harper is feeling the pressure to make the first ever Paradise Cookery School classes a dazzling success and ensure that bride-to-be Imogen and friends have an unforgettable experience.
Meanwhile, Millie is trying to play it cool around handsome estate manager Zach Barker. But whenever he is near Millie cannot fail to notice the chemistry between them – until someone from Zach’s past arrives and any potential romance seems out of the question.
When disaster strikes and the wedding is in jeopardy, Millie realises she may have to go above and beyond to make sure the school is a success. Can Millie manage to create a day that dreams are made of, and will she find a way to tell Zach how she feels?
Allow yourself to be transported to the balmy St Lucian sunshine by his uplifting summer read – perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver and Sarah Morgan.
Weddings in Paradise
Confetti & Confusion is the second book in the Paradise Cookery School series, set on the spectacular Caribbean island of St Lucia. In the story we re-join Millie and Ella as they showcase a myriad of chocolate-themed recipes for bride-to-be Imogen and her friends in the run up to their glamorous wedding at a luxury resort on the hilltop overlooking the stunning Pitons. It’s a dream come true for Imogen to be getting married in such exotic surroundings and, as a confirmed chocoholic, being able to attend the cookery school is the icing on the three-tiered wedding cake.
Many couples choose to exchange their vows in a tropical paradise – either barefoot on a white sandy beach beneath the swaying palm trees, in the botanical gardens of a luxury resort, or in a white-washed gazebo overlooking the sea or next to a rainbow-coloured waterfall.
It might sound extravagant, but in fact it can actually be more cost effective than holding a wedding at home. The hotel usually has a wedding co-ordinator who handles all the necessary arrangements, too, which leaves you free to enjoy the run-up to the celebrations with your family and friends. That’s the theory anyway; it didn’t quite work out like that for Imogen and her friends though!
If you choose the destination with care then you are pretty much guaranteed to have a sun-filled day, an abundance of tropical flowers and foliage to choose from for the bouquets and the table floral arrangements, and what about the amazing scenery as the backdrop for the wedding photographs?
Coupled with the gourmet-standard food on offer, it all adds up to a fabulously memorable wedding experience with a ready-made honeymoon thrown in.
Do I sound like a convert? Well, that’s because I got married in Hawaii! Thankfully, our wedding planner was nothing like Fleur Markham in Confetti & Confusion and managed to deliver everything with friendly professionalism, although I still laugh when I remember the music she chose for us!
