Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to read and review Wedding Vows and Cornish Ribbons by Laura Briggs.
Thank you to Rachels Random Resources for today’s book blitz tour. Now, without further ado, here is my review!!
When I first started reading Wedding Vows and Cornish Ribbons, I didn’t think I would like it as much as I have, but I found I enjoyed it.
One aspect of the novel I particularly enjoyed is the authors attention to details. The way she set up the scenes around preparing for the wedding and incorporating minor details without overwhelming me in minutia made me enjoy reading this novel. For me, there is a fine line between too much and not enough detailed information, and this one worked for me.
There are many likeable characters in this romance. For instance, Julianne, Nathan, Kitty, and Matthew are passionately hard-working people. Matthew and Nathan, while both also hard working, family oriented husbands thay are loving and supportive of their wives. I enjoyed reading them all, but Diedre is by far my favorite. I loved how ecclectic and passionate she felt when she talked about her work. I really liked this passage from the novel.
“I love finding out who they are through their things. Things tell their stories. You could probably tell me a hundred stories about what was pulled out of this closet alone.”Wedding Vows and Cornish Ribbons by Laura Briggs
I rate Wedding Vows and Cornish Ribbons, by Laura Briggs 4 out of 5 stars. With no vulgarity or explicit scenes, I can happily recommend it to all romance readers.
