A wonderful festive read with a difference. This debut novel from Sara Gibbs is a must read.

The story follows Hannah, Ella and Rachel, whose lives are intertwined in the lead up to Rachel's Christmas Day Wedding.

Rachel is more interested in bagging a new job than her wedding, yet a family secret and how Rachel manipulates it to get the job of her dreams threatens to ruin both th wedding and her relationship with her family.

Hannah lives a care free life much to the fustration of her Mother, but her life is thrown into turmoil when her Father suddenly dies in Tel Aviv. She has to go and pay her respects, right? It's a week till her Cousin Rachel's wedding, she's in a country she has never been to and has more to deal with than she ever imagined.

Ella - finally loses it with her impossible dragon of an employer and quits her job as a wedding planner. She manages to secretly keep one client, Rachel, the weddings in a weeks time, her ex boss will never know, will she? But her ex employer has other plans and does everything she can to ruin the wedding and Ella's dream of running her own business.

I was found reading about Jewish traditions as part of this story fascinating and ut certainly gave a different vibe to the usual Christmas rom com.

We have a new chicken lit queen! Sara writes beautifully, characters to fall in love with, witty humour and romance form this perfect Christmas read.

I was given an early copy of this book via Netgalley and Headline Books.

I loved this Christmas story which develops quickly and filled several people in the lead up to Christmas Day with what appears a catastrophy filled wedding preparation. A great read in different settings which was different but very enjoyable.

Eight Bright Lights is a great festive read,

It tells the story of three friends and throughout the story we get the chance to glimpse into their lives and see their journeys. The characters are relatable and were easy to hope for their happy endings.

Eight Bright Lights is such a fun, funny and adorable romance. I loved seeing Hannah grow throughout this book and also the female friendships were so nice to read and I really enjoyed that this wasn't just romance there's a lot of other elements as well. However the romance is also adorable and heart-warming, you can't help but root for them. Overall this is a beautifully written book with gretat friendships, humour and romance.

I am so excited for this one! I instantly knew I had to acquire this immediately after stumbling upon it. I will share my full thoughts in the near future, but the gorgeous cover instantly drew me in! I’m always so excited to find a new author and I’m sure exciting things are on the horizon for Sara. I can’t wait to read a Hannah, Rachel, and Ella’s stories and I love how they all intertwine together!
