About the Book

Four years after her life-changing summer, Gigi Goldstein thinks saying goodbye to Camp Chinooka means saying hello to a brand new life. Now faced with a second chance at her career, she is filled with more hope than she’s felt in a long time. Her design house is taking the fashion world by storm, even attracting notice of Victoria Ellicott, the fashionable British socialite who just happens to be engaged to the future king of England. When Gigi is chosen to design the royal wedding dress in London, she is forced to confront her ex-fiancé, Perry Gillman, now a successful composer with a hit show on the West End.

But when Gigi learns Perry’s been dating Victoria’s sister, who rivals her in looks, style and sophistication, Gigi can’t help but feel inadequate in everything. Her world begins to crumble as she develops a creative block so debilitating, she fears that a wedding dress of royal proportions is never going to happen. Even a budding relationship with the handsome, wealthy, and rich Viscount of Satterley can’t make her forget about Perry and her inability to get over him. As the world gears up for the wedding of the century, Gigi is on the brink of buckling under the immense pressure of the uncertainties of her future and failures of her past.

Will she be able overcome her creative paralysis to design the dress of Victoria’s dreams, or will she break down now that she has even s’more to lose?

My Review

Rating: 4 S'More Stars!

To be honest, I was rather hesitant to start this book particularly after the ending of book 1 (which seems perfect actually) because I've grown to love Perry and Gigi, and I couldn't bear the thought of them not being together. Of course, curiosity lured me in - I couldn't resist returning to the warmth of Camp Chinooka! 

What I did not expect was to fall completely in love with the series for the second time, and even though it ended with a cliffhanger that left you pulling out your hair (at least it was to me), I wouldn't trade those hours reading into the night for anything else. 

I was legitly torn between Perry and Gideon, and I typically avoid romance with two love interests, but somehow Beth's works are like a charm that enchant me to keep on reading this series. However...shhh...because I fell in love with Perry first, I'm still rooting for their HEA. 

I can't wait for book 3! 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book generously provided by Xpresso Book Tours and the author. Thank you so much for the reviewing opportunity!
