A Vera Wang dress, the reception at a sophisticated London venue, and a guest list that reads like a society gossip column are all the ingredients of Anna Whitehall's perfect wedding that never was...Spending the summer uncovering hidden treasures in a vintage shop, Anna can still vividly remember both her childhood dreams; the first was that she'd become a Prima Ballerina, and dance on stage resplendent in a jewel-encrusted tutu.
The second was that at her wedding she would walk down the aisle wearing a collective-gasp-from-the-congregation dress.Years ago Anna pirouetted out of her cosy hometown village in a whirl of ambition...but when both of those fairy-tale dreams came crashing down around her ballet shoes, she and fiancee Seb find themselves back in Nettleton, their wedding and careers postponed indefinitely...Don't they say that you can never go home again?
Sometimes they don't get it right... This one summer is showing Anna that your dreams have to grow up with you. And sometimes what you think you wanted is just the opposite of what makes you happy...Don't miss this brilliant sequel to THE PARISIAN CHRISTMAS BAKE OFFPraise for Jenny Oliver'I thoroughly enjoyed this book it had a sprinkling of festivity, a touch of romance and a glorious amount of mouth-watering baking!' - Rea Book Review'With gorgeous descriptions of Paris, Christmas, copious amounts of delicious baking that'll make your mouth water, and lots and lots of snow - what more could you ask for from a Christmas novel!' - Bookboodle'The baking part of the book is incredibly well written; fans of The Great British Bake Off will not be disappointed to see all their favourites in here!
