Sundays in bed with is a meme hosted by Midnight Book Girl but I came across it recently on Jill’s Book Blog. It is simply a chance to share the book that is by your bed at the moment (or that you wish was by your bed). This week, the book on my sofa is A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan.
In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding. First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret of their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.
Rosie’s older sister, Katie, is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself! If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…
Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiancé but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived—how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget!
I haven’t got very far with this yet and no-one has actually arrived in Aspen. The book is echoing my life a bit at the moment though. Rosie has just phoned her mum to tell her that she is getting married in the US. Maggie realises that this might mean that her daughter will not come home but will settle out there and as her marriage has also ended, she is beginning to wonder what meaning her life has. My daughter is also moving to the states shortly after Christmas and having retired, I can definitely get on board with how Maggie is feeling at the moment.
As this is by Sarah Morgan, I am fairly certain that the story will end well and am looking forward to finishing it later on today.
