If a holiday book publishes today that means it’s not too early to be reading them, right?! What’s great about this one is that while it’s set right before Christmas Day it’s not actually super holiday heavy so you can easily read this a bit early and still enjoy it like I did. While the weather and the small town setting gave me cozy holiday vibes, the story itself focuses more on the wedding itself and the relationships between the various characters making it a great read for

A book about two of my favorite things, Christmas and a wedding? What could go wrong?

Apparently every thing a reader can possibly imagine, a broken down vehicle in snowstorm, candle decorations and flowers destroyed, and peanut butter on bridesmaid's dress. And that's just the beginning, there's a lot more, one disaster after another got to be too much. But worst of all is the mother of the groom asking the bride to sign a prenuptial agreement the day before the wedding! Her bitter a

I love romances, but this story (or should I say stories, as there are multiple arcs) was a little complicated to keep up with if you aren't reading all in one sitting. The main character seems to be Jen? with a plotline that involves Beth & Tom's wedding, interjected with mini subplots involving Winston & Sylvia; Jen, Jared, & Ed; Gloria & Ken; Destiny & Carl; Nadine & Uncle Charlie. Chapters randomly zigzag among the various storylines - with each new chapter, I

**I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.**

I spent most of the book hoping that Tom's mother would get her head out of her butt and stop being a jerk to Beth. However, I also spent most of the book wishing that Beth would get some guts and put her mother - in - law to be, in her place. She wouldn't have to be rude, but she would need to be firm.

Mitzi, Jared, and Jen are my favorite characters in the book. Nearly every scene with Mitzi made me laugh. Espe

I'm a sucker for a really good Christmas romance. Throw in a wedding and some rekindled romances and I'm completely hooked. I will say that there is a lot going on in White Christmas Wedding and a bunch of different characters but Celeste Winters (isn't that just The perfect name for the writer of a Christmas romance?) makes it work. She seamlessly integrates the numerous goings on into one great read. Then characters are full of personality and a realness that is very appealing. The writing has ...more

Beth is returning to her Midwest roots so her grandmother can attend her wedding to the love of her live. When Tom's family wants her to sign a pre-nup the prospects of a wedding diminish. This book has many sub-stories and several romances. Michigan weather plays a big part of the story and adds some excitement to the story. I think Tom's mother was a little overboard but I'm sure there are lots of mother-in-laws just like her. Lots of laughs and smiles within the book. I received a copy of thi ...more

This story is filled with lots of energy and fun. Beth and Tom live in New York but Beth wants to have her wedding back in Michigan where she grew up. Plus they decide to have a Christmastime wedding. There's usually lots of snow in Beth's hometown in late December and that causes some very interesting complications for the wedding. I really enjoyed reading Beth and Tom's story and getting to know their family and friends too. The wedding was beautiful! I am sure readers will enjoy finding out h ...more

This story is about Beth and Tom’s wedding at Christmas. The wedding is being held in Michigan at a farm. Tom comes from a wealthy family. Beth decides to have the wedding in her hometown because of her mom and grandmother. Her friend Jen plans the wedding and it looks like it’s going to be perfect but then everything starts to go wrong. I loved the characters and hope this becomes a series because there were a few cliffhangers.
Thank you NetGalley and Howard Books for an advanced copy. This is

This is definitely my first feel good read of the Christmas season. The author's wry sense of humor shines through and makes the characters even more relatable. You get enveloped into the families in the delightful, fun romp of a book. The only thing that keeps it from getting 5*s is for the length of the book there are too many characters to fully develop them. If this were turned into a Christmas series it would be given that opportunity.

I had never read anything by Celeste Winters, but I will in the future. White Christmas Wedding combines the story of not only the bride and groom, but also his parents' marriage story and the reuniting of high school love with the wedding planner. There were many characters in this book as friends and family travel from NYC to a Michigan farm for a wedding in an unexpected snow storm. The author did a great job of clear storylines with all the characters. I would add this to your Christmas read ...more

This book was cute & funny & sweet. A winter wedding in rural Michigan is always a gamble, & this one was no exception. The characters are likeable & relatable, & the situations were realistic. I suspect this book was longer & an editor came back & asked that it be cut down as some parts felt like there had been more to them at one point. I hope this is a series as this title left at least three unresolved story lines for which I'm dying for more!

This was an easy to read story that just left you feeling good. The friendships between the women in the story was nice to see. The romances, both established and blossoming, were realistic and I liked that the story portrayed that while it wasn't all smooth sailing in love, love is worth working for. I was left with a smile and a contented heart after reading.

This was a feel good winter Michigan book! I didn't think all the side stories would get wrapped up but thankfully it all came together. One thing I didn't agree with completely was Jared went for a Cherry Coke that he missed as his drink from being away in Texas... anyone knows Michigan pop is faygo and vernors! Minor detail though!
