Guest Book Review: Talli Roland - Married by Midnight

Reviewed by Tanya Phillips

Christmas is coming . . . and so is the biggest day of Kate's life.

While choosing a vintage dress for her Christmas Eve wedding, Kate finds a cryptic note pinned to the inside of a 1930s gown. As doubts about her own ceremony loom, Kate is determined to track down the dress' owner and determine what became of her - and the marriage.

Will Kate find the answers she's seeking to propel her down the aisle, or will her discovery prompt her to call off the wedding for good?

Kate is due to be married in one week, on Christmas Eve, and she has decided that this is the day that she will buy her wedding dress.  When I say decide she has consulted her horoscopes and it says that today is the day to make big decisions as Kate and her mum believe in reading and going by the horoscopes and the stars.  

Bea, Kate’s sister, is “the exact opposite, preferring hard-core evidence to the airy-fairy”.   Bea does not know what Kate sees in her boyfriend Tim who is the exact opposite to Kate, he hardly speaks to her when there is sport on television and would rather play video games than read (lets face it that’s a big no no in most readers eyes!).

When they find a dress there is a note inside which sends Kate and Bea off in search of the story behind the previous owner.  They want to know if the owner had had a happily married life or was there another reason for the note?

I really do not want to describe where this journey takes them and the questions Kate asks herself along the way, all I can say is that the ending of the novella had me ohhh and ahhing in delight...  

Although this is a Christmas based story you could read it any time and you would not be disappointed.  A must read for the coming season though in my opinion as who doesn’t love the idea of love at Christmas?

I'd like to thank Tanya for this fantastic review and Talli for sending us a copy of her eBook to review.
