Did I Mention I Was Getting Married? by Julie Butterfield

Best enjoyed on a cosy chair with a large mug of tea and some biscuits.


Two years ago Rebecca Miles won the lottery and ended her marriage to her overbearing and unpleasant husband Daniel. She had every intention of putting the past behind her and starting again, but it turned out to be so much more difficult than she had imagined.

Then Daniel announces he is getting married again and as Rebecca broods over how he has found it so easy to move on her daughter phones with good news – she’s getting married too! Determined not to be left behind Rebecca throws caution to the wind and finally meets someone who can give her the new start she so desperately wants.

Now her ex-husband is back in her life, the future Mrs Miles wants to be her best friend, she has her daughter’s wedding to plan and a ramshackle old wedding venue to renovate to its former perfection in just a few months, if only she can find a builder who will take on the job.

There are challenges, surprises, love and heartbreak ahead but at the end of a long, hot summer, will there be any weddings?

I was lucky enough to read Julie Butterfield’s first book, “Did I Mention I Won The Lottery” a few days ahead of the author releasing the sequel “Did I Mention I Was Getting Married”.  I enjoyed the first book so much that I was very excited to hear there was more to the story and couldn’t wait to download and start reading.

In this book the characters have moved on from the shock lottery win and are now living their new lives the way they wish.  The author has been good enough to recap so don’t worry if you haven’t read the first one – although you really should, its great!   This time around I think I actually felt sorry for Daniel from time to time which I definitely didn’t do in reading the first one – funny how things change.

This is an easy read (285 pages) and very enjoyable captivating romance which keeps you wondering what will happen next. As normal, no plot giveaways here,  My advice is to read them both and, please, do let me know what you think!

Julie Butterfield belongs to the rather large group of ‘always wanted to write’ authors who finally found the time to sit down and put pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard.

It has to be pointed out that ‘Did I mention I won the lottery’ is a complete work of fiction and she did not in fact receive millions in her bank account and forget to tell her husband – even though he still asks her every day if she has anything to tell him!
