Review: Four Weddings and a White Christmas by Jenny Oliver

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25618917-four-weddings-and-a-white-christmas
Hannah’s holidays are normally spent nibbling chocolate coins with her daughter and praying she’s not too old for a stocking on Christmas morning. But this year, she’s been offered the dressmaker’s job of a lifetime: creating a one-of-a-kind a gown for her friend Annie’s Christmas wedding on the picture-perfect Cherry Pie Island.
Many mince pies and one hot-pink organza dress later, Hannah is set to snuggle back into her old routine… Until she discovers that there are three more weddings to come – and not a dress in sight!
Four themes, four brides and four parties spent avoiding chef Harry Fontaine, whose cynicism is as much a wedding day guarantee as confetti and cake. Hannah has her work cut out for her! Yet, with a sprinkling of snowflakes and Christmas magic, it could be that this is the year when miracles really do happen… If Hannah will let them.

I love Cherry Pie Island. I'm definitely going to miss my regular trips.
This book really did have a very "final" feel about it. A bit like the end of an era. But it's not all sad. In fact, this is a very uplifting story full of happy endings and guaranteed to make you smile. And it's absolutely perfect for Christmas.
This book made me so hungry though. All of that food!
Despite this being part of a series, it could easily be read as a standalone, as we meet a new character, Hannah, and it mostly focuses around her and her meetings with Harry. That said, it's the perfect culmination to the series with all of these weddings and un-engagements so if you've read the previous books you'll likely love this.
