Molly Green has done it again!
A Winter Wedding at Bletchley Park continues on the engaging and fascinating path established by the first book in the series. Green has thoroughly researched the subject matter, this time focusing on the role of the Italian navy's actions and the efforts of the staff at Bletchley Park to thwart the enemies efforts.
The main character of Rosie, whose dreams were shattered at a young age when her wedding was cancelled through no fault of her own and whose daughter was taken by her parents to raise, is well-rounded and relatable as she struggles to serve her country despite active and spiteful opposition from members of her own family. The challenges of unwed mothers, and of women in general, of the time and during WWII are portrayed with a depth of understanding that makes the reader care about Rosie throughout the novel. The other characters are likewise intriguing, as is the job that Rosie finds herself performing at the ultra secret location.
This is a book that draws you in and refuses to let you go. It is in turns heart-warming and heart-wrenching, and I admit to staying up far past my bedtime to finish it.
It seems that once again the book will have a title change, and this time I support the title Winter at Bletchley Park wholeheartedly. Mentioning the wedding in the title is a big spoiler, leaving only the matter of which suiter she will marry in question.
Thank you once again to #NetGalley and #AvonBooksUK for the advance copy of the wonderful #AWinterWeddingatBletchleyPark. #WinteratBletchleyPark

After reading the first Bletchley Park book by Molly Green, I was eager to read the second in the series to see how it compared. You don't need to have read the first, this can be read as a standalone perfectly well although the main character from the first does make an occasional appearance.

I actually loved the storyline of this book more and loved the character of Rosie who, jilted at the altar at 17 has then lived with the consequences ever since. You really feel for Rosie as she suffers through various situations until finally reaching Bletchley Park. Here she bumps into the man who jilted her all those years ago, Hugo.

Once again, the historical elements of the story were spot on and it was fascinating to discover that a real-life couple did work separately and unknowingly at Bletchley Park until they bumped into each other in a corridor!

**Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and author for the opportunity to read an advanced e-copy of this book. All opinions are my own **

WWII without as much of the trauma of the war.
Yes there was bombings and we knew what was happening but the focus was more on the characters of the book. I really liked the relationship between Hugo and Rosie. Also the interaction between the sisters was good. I believe I enjoyed this book better than the first one of the series.

Absolutely loved this book, This is a follow up to Summer secrets at Bletchley park but you don't really have to have read that book to enjoy this one as Dulcie only feature a few times and the book is quite independent, just set in the same place.

The book is about Rosie, who at 17 got jilted on her wedding day by the handsome Hugo. Afterwards she finds out she is pregnant.

Fast forward 5 years and war has broken out, and Rosie wants to do something for the war effort, she really wants to join the Navy but is dismissed when they find out she has an illegitimate child. One of the officers in her dismissal, thinks it's a waste of her talent and sets the ball in motion to get her another chance by becoming a civilian working at Bletchley park.

She meets a lovely man along the way called John and his sister. John falls in love with her, but will Hugo return to make her life difficult, even though no-one but her mam and dad knows about the child, can she stop Hugo finding out about her.

There are lots of secrets and lies, love and romance in this book and I absolutely loved it.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical romance

I have read all this author’s books, and this one has to be the best yet.

Set in the eponymous Bletchley Park, it deals of course with those famous heroes who relentlessly battled to break the codes of thousands of messages sent during World War II.
The characters were very well drawn, and it was a nice change to read a script that was set entirely “behind-the-scenes“ and didn’t deal with the battles at all.
We all should remember that there were more people fighting for us than the soldiers during this war! I look forward very much to reading the third instalment in the series.

Another excellent read by Molly Green. I love to read about heat happened at Bletchley Park during the war and this didn't disappoint. Full of love and friendship, a little confusion and mystery and you have a great book.

I was hooked from the beginning of this story. Following Rosie's story was both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I loved the twists and turns. It really opens your eyes to what the people at Bletchley Park endured during their employment there. There were some really lovely characters who were so helpful and supportive of each other. This was a truly uplifting read.
