Behind the Book
The book’s set in London and Iceland. Actually, the whole idea started in Iceland: we saw a bride at a church when we were doing the Golden Circle tour. A day or so later, at the black beach of Reynisfjara, there was another bride. And then we saw a third bride by the Skógafoss waterfall (which was also used in the film Thor: Dark World), with all the rainbows behind her. Clearly I needed to write a wedding planner book, and she needed to set up weddings in Iceland.
Even cooler, the US cover features Skógafoss – I was *so* thrilled. (And guess where my bride has her wedding photographs taken?)
Add in a single dad with a tragic past, a very cute child who enjoys art stuff as much as my daughter did at that age, and a proposition… And there we have Sophie and Jamie’s story.
Sophie is a stepmum, so I could only dedicate the book to one very special person – my own stepmum, Gay Sewell, and I’m very privileged to have her in my life.
You’ll enjoy this if you like office romances and/or single dad stories, small children, weepies and strong heroines.
