A Groom with a View by Sophie Ranald

A Groom with a View

From the author of the # 1 best-selling romantic comedy It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't it?) When you’re tying the knot, you can end up in a tangle… Nick and Pippa have been an item since forever, but they’ve always said marriage isn’t for them. That’s until, in a moment of mad romance, they find themselves engaged. Pippa knows she’s no bridezilla – and she’s definitely not expecting Nick to get swept of...

    I was looking for a fun and light read and this book came out as a recommendation while I was searching for Sophie Kinsella in the search bar. I gave it a try, not really expecting too much because it was my first time to read something from this other "Sophie", and was conveniently satisfied when I was done. Light and fun it indeed was and I enjoyed several scenes (especially the ones involving mom-in-laws haha) although I was looking for someth...

    For some reason, I had trouble getting into this book, maybe because in the first few chapters there didn't seem to be anything wrong with their relationship and I didn't really see where this story was going, but I'm really glad I stuck with it. I related to Pippa and I love how Sophie Ranald wrote about mother in laws, wedding plan stress, and women not wanting to be Bridezillas or taking their husband's last name. It was so refreshing to have ...

    Easy to read, all about a wedding, the planning and the bride's feelings. Also lots of miscommunication. It makes me wonder if there really are people out there like that but I suppose there must be, as she says in the acknowledgements that it's based on stories of the ladies from her book club. Not the best book I've ever read but certainly eay enough to read.

    Review first posted on my blog: http://spoonfulofhappyendings.blogspo...Pippa is happy with the life she leads; she has a great job as a chef and she has the perfect relationship with her boyfriend Nick. Everyone always mentions how great the two of them are together, and Pippa knows she doesn’t need a ring on her finger as proof of their love for each other. Yet, after a few too many drinks, Pippa suddenly finds herself engaged to Nick and bef...

    It’s getting harder and harder to find worthy “chick lit” books lately, and there are so many books I start but never get to finish because I get bored or I find the plot line too predictable. I usually try to give books one hundred pages and that’s it. I usually steer clear of wedding-type books but Sophie Ranald’s “A Groom WIth A View” had a very interesting premise – what if the groom was more excited about the wedding than the...

    Full review at nicolehasread.blogspot.com.auPippa and Nick get incredibly drunk at a friend's wedding and one of them, neither is really sure which, proposes to the other. And there the fun starts. Nick takes on most of the wedding plans and wants to give Pippa her dream day, but Pippa's dreams don't quite match Nick's, and when his mother descends on their tiny two bed flat, the stress is almost enough to end their relationship.Ranald's writing ...

    Sophie Ranald has nailed this genre. She has given us another heroine who could be one of us, not a pathetic mouse needing a makeover which has been the cliche of commercial women's fiction. Pippa is funny, sweet, confident, ambitious and multidimensional. Her back story - and indeed those of the other players - is utterly convincing. There are no casual tropes here - even the evil mother-in-law (and be warned, she's a doozie!) is subtly drawn av...

    Not bad - well-written, not completely straightforward, and with a good ending. I don't think I'll go back to it, because there wasn't quite enough for me about the real relationship between H & h - a lot from her side, but not enough from his. But this was a cut above other stuff I've read recently.

    Yes!! I'm so glad the author didn't mess with this perfect couple here! (view spoiler)[Even though she nearly so! (hide spoiler)]Love her writing style and humour. Definitely looking forward to more of her works.

    I haven't previously read anything by this author but when it's a freebie you can't really complain, I am really glad I took a chance I was a bit annoyed with the main antagonist at times however I liked reading her story as it went along and the blog by her husband to be

    Easy to read, engaging and light. My only bugbear is the language, I'm not a big fan of sweary books, otherwise perfect chick lit.

    Thoroughly enjoyable read about planning a wedding. Twist is the groom is a groomzilla and the bride isn't so interested. Twists and turns and funny.

    Witty, well-observed chick lit with an intelligent female lead. Laugh out loud funny and touching in equal measure.

    I loved this book! Very easy read with likeable, believable characters. It wasn't as predictable as I thought it was going to be, but wrapped up very nicely which is how I like books to finish.
