After reading Katie's Dating Mr Darcy trilogy last year I was more than happy to see her bring out a second trilogy with the same characters. I really like that idea of going back and seeing what's happening especially when they all are great chick lit reads.

Book one in the Marrying Me Darcy trilogy is this one And The Bride Wore Prada. The cover is bright and perfect to catch the eye of the ever-growing chick lit fanatics. For me I must be brutally honest and say that's were the love ends. I kn

Having loved Katie Oliver's previous series Dating Mr Darcy, I was looking forward to the start of this new series. Especially since it features a lot of old characters. And yet, I was ultimately disappointed by this book.

It was great to pick up on the stories of Gemma and Dominic, and also Rhys and Natalie, but yet I barely recognised Gemma, since she has turned into a complete bride-zilla. I just didn't get the same fab feeling from this book, than I did from the others.

A lovely read- lots of smiles, twists and turns and relationship issues!

A torrential blizzard results in an mismatched group staying in an isolated Scottish castle! Now two of them, Natalie and Rhys, were due to be there visiting their friends Tarquin and Wren but they, very kindly, offered a lift to Natalie’s ex, the rock star Dominic and his fiancé Gemma. Then the blizzard results in Helen’s car skidding off the road, necessitating her joining the castle crowd. Throw in the fact that Gemma has turned into Bridezilla, that she and Dom are trying to get married away ...more

And The Bride Wore Prada, by Katie Oliver, is the first book in the Marrying Mr. Darcy series, the follow-up to her successful and absolutely lovely Dating Mr. Darcy series. All of our favourite characters are back, and with the introduction of new ones, this is a fun and incredibly delightful book.

This book is just as good the other three. These are great characters that you will want to invest your time in and the same goes for each new character that gets introduced in. Helen and Colm are a g

This was recommended to me by Katie herself as I haven't ever read any of her books and she said this was one of her favourites. Having read it, I can understand why....yes now I'm hooked and shall be reading the rest of the series !! Considering that Katie lives in the US and this was mostly set in Scotland I was a little surprised (though pleasantly), especially considering the title. One doesn't usually think of Scotland in that way, most of the news concerning that part of the UK doesn't tou ...more

More twists, turns, highs, and lows than a roller coaster. It was great to have Natalie, Rhys, Dominic, and Gemma back, this time in the Highlands of Scotland - stranded at Draemar Castle, home to Natalie's friend, Tarquin and his wife, Wren. I found myself laughing, crying, and shaking my fist throughout the book as we meet new people and witness their near self-destructiveness before learning from their mistakes. Katie really knocked it out of the park with the first book in her new series.

I think this is my favourite of Oliver's books. It was great to meet up with some old characters - wild, complaining Dom, Bridezilla Gemma and lovely Natalie and Rhys. The setting was lush - up in the Highlands with plenty of whiskey and snow. Oliver's writing is fast-paced, vivid and funny. And The Bride Wore Prada twists and turns as it goes and was unputdownable. A Fab-u-lous read!

A great book.

This book was absolutely nothing that I thought it would be was BETTER! The introduction of new characters and keeping with original characters from the original series is great.
