The Wedding Party is the first book I have read by Tammy Cohen and it was an excellent read. I was drawn to the book because I lived on Kefalonia for over twelve months.
Lucy is marrying Jason and wants her day to be perfect so books an elaborate, expensive wedding in Kefalonia for her close family and friends. She utilises the services of a wedding planner, Nina, who has an excellent reputation.
The mixture of guests and secrets provides electric twists and turns throughout the novel. Lucy’s parents both have secrets which spill over into the day and her sister, Jess, brings a stranger to the wedding who is not who he claims to be. Lucy’s best friend, Shelly, is hiding her background and the reasons she is at the wedding whereas Jason and his mother, Cora, have a dark background.
The tribulations between Nina and her husband add to the disclosures providing an insight into living on a Greek island.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Random House UK, Transworld Publishers, Black Swan for my ARC of The Wedding Party in return for my honest review.
