Revenge of the Wedding Planner is the first book I have read by Sharon Owens, a relatively new Irish writer, and it turned out to be a light and enjoyable read, although I have to admit I had some difficulty getting into it at first. The story is told by Mags, who works at Dream Weddings with her boss Julie. Mags is a very amiable character who has a happy but somewhat complicated family life. She is extremely content with her husband Bill with whom they have four almost grown up children who cause her a certain amount of angst, particularly her eldest son Alexander who announces that his anorexic girlfriend Emma is pregnant. The person who causes her the most problems .. Read the complete review

There has been a lot of books flooding the shelves in my local shops lately that I want to read, but sadly I just don't have the money to purchase them all brand new, and its hard to get hold of them on my swapping sites too. So I turned to my good old trusty library and reserved 2 of them straight away. The first of these was a new author to me, Sharon Owens, is an Irish author who has written a few books, but this one caught my eye with its colourful funny cover. So I took it home and eagerly started to read. 'Revenge of the Wedding Planner' is the story of Mags Grimsdale, a 40-something woman who works at Dream Weddings, a small wedding planning business ...

The first book I read by Sharon Owens was Seven Secrets of Happiness, which I absolutely loved, so I requested Revenge of the Wedding Planner off of Read It Swap It as soon as I had finished it. In typical me fashion, I started reading something else and it ended up on a huge pile which I only got to recently. Mags and Julie are wedding planners although they couldn't be more different. Julie is a commitment phobic while Mags is still blissfully married to her childhood sweetheart. When Julie has a mid-life crisis Mags is left to pick up the pieces of Julia's life as well as her own hectic family life. He son's girlfriend is struggling with an eating disorder ...

This review is for the book revenge of the wedding planner, written by Sharon Owens. As a fan of all magical or gothic/horror genre books I was a bit undedcided about whether or not to buy this girly looking book, but as i got it from my local book shop on the offer of three books for five pounds (The works book shop-Nuneaton), I decided to give it a go. I must admit I bought it about six months ago and haven't even picked it up since I bought it, but two days ago I decided that i'd quite like a change from the usual books I read and decided to read this. I didn't hold out much hope for this book as I really didn't think it would be my ... Read the complete review
