Christmas Weddings by Georgia Hill - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Millie's wish to travel has finally come true. Her café is for sale and her last winter in Millie Vanilla's Cupcake Café is all about the wedding she's organizing. It's going to take place at Christmas and will be located in the café and on the beach. However, Millie isn't having any sparkling and festive feelings. She's having problems with Jed and doesn't know how to fix them. He's keeping secrets from her and she has no idea what he's up to. She only knows it involves her biggest competition, the rivals who are ruining her business. That doesn't sit well with her at all. Is there a way for her and Jed to get through this?

Millie has brought her free spirited friend Eleri back to Berecombe to help her at the café. Eleri is great with the customers and has a certain wisdom that keeps attracting people. Will Eleri find happiness at Millie Vanilla's Cupcake Café? Can she cheer Millie up? It's almost Christmas, will the magic of the holiday make everything right in Millie's world or will she end up heartbroken and alone?

Millie Vanilla's Cupcake Café is such a wonderful place to read about. I love how Georgia Hill makes her setting come to life. I could easily picture the delicious cakes and hot chocolate and the regular customers are fun to read about. I love Millie, she's a sweetheart. She has such a good personality and that's the perfect basis for a Christmas story. I also liked reading about Eleri a lot. She's an original character with a fantastic world view and that gave the story plenty of surprising twists and turns, which made it difficult to put this third novella about Millie and her friends down.

Christmas Weddings is another fabulous story by Georgia Hill. I love Christmas and I'm a big fan of stories about weddings, so of course a combination of the two immediately put a big smile on my face. I loved the execution and the ending of the story is incredibly romantic, which suits the season very well. Georgia Hill has written a sweet and endearing series with a nice number of unexpected events and many gorgeous main characters. I highly recommend the Millie Vanilla's Cupcake Café stories, they're all enchanting, charming and delightful.


Christmas Weddings can be read as a standalone, but I'd advise you to read all Millie Vanilla's Cupcake Café stories if you want to have Millie's complete story. They're perfect for readers who love small town romance and delicious cakes.

About Georgia Hill

I’ve always written – journals, diaries, some really bad poetry! And I’ve always talked a lot about writing a novel. When I moved house for about the ninth time in as many years and lost my precious notebooks, I decided the time was right to write! So I began a long short story based on two characters who refused to leave my head. I completely rewrote that story and the result was my first novel Pride and Perdita. It has many of my favourite things in it – a difficult but charismatic man, shades of Pride and Prejudice (my all time favourite book) and is inspired by the wonderful county of Herefordshire.

I’m currently working on a series of fun novellas set in Devon.

When I get the chance, I love to take the spaniels out for long walks. They don’t seem to appreciate the amount of time it takes to write a book and, when they see the laptop coming out, sit on my feet trying to distract me!

Thought this might be fun – five ‘interesting’ things about Georgia Hill!

1. I have an extensive collection of elephants – on mugs, cushions and pictures. Sadly, Hubs has banned me from owning the real thing, saying the garden just isn’t big enough for an elephant and two very naughty spaniels.

2. I’ve travelled widely, visiting Asia, the USA, much of Europe, Africa and the old USSR. Favourite place of all? Lyme Regis, Dorset.

3. I used to work in the theatre.

4. I spent four days on the Trans-Siberian Express with a film crew.

5. I once taught road safety to the US Navy.
