One Day Like This: A feel good summer romance

ONE DAY LIKE THIS                                     LAURA BRIGGS

Tessa has always dreamed of her own business. And when a beautiful tumbledown house comes up for sale in the Southern town of Bellegrove, she knows it has perfect potential to be an amazing one-stop wedding shop. 

Teaming up with wedding planner to the stars Stefan, cake-baker extraordinaire Ama, and dress designer Natalie, they’re ready for big things. They’ve even found their first client – a sweet old lady called Bianca, who’s desperate to give her grandson a spectacular wedding. (Even though he’s equally determined to keep it simple and romantic.) 

But as the big day approaches, things start to go wrong. Handsome handyman Blake Ellingham breaks the news that the building needs re-wiring and the bill for renovations is longer than a royal wedding train. And then Stefan suddenly quits… 

Can Tessa pull off the dream wedding? Can Blake be convinced to help? And if the electrics are broken, why are so many sparks flying between him and Tessa? 


I thought this book was going to be so much more. Tessa wants to open her own bridal shop with a wedding planner, dressmaker, cake maker. Sounds great and she goes out and buys a building that is or should be condemned. They find a handyman Blake Ellington who actually adds some fun moments but every time when I thought this book was going to take off it did not. When I thought something might happen between Tessa and Blake nothing. From a guy’s perspective or at least mine, I get that it is about the wedding, but there was no romance. Every time someone made a pass at either of the women they shot them down. I did like Natalie though she was a dressmaker her family owned an Italian bakery so I could relate to that. I just had a problem when a book is under romance and I just did not feel like it was a romance, none of the main characters ended up with anyone. The story of the couple grandmother’s marriage was the only romance. Maybe the other books will be different. I received this book from I gave it 2 stars. Follow us at
