Summary

Christmas. A wedding. Family. It’s the perfect storm....

For Rory Kincaid marrying Jack, the youngest son of the aristocratic De Lacy family, on Christmas Eve, is a dream come true. Handing over the wedding planning to Jack’s mother, the strong-willed Lady Diana, is turning out to be more of a nightmare.

As their big day approaches, the pressure’s on and the strain is beginning to show. Announcements in society magazines, a guest list that’s growing and growing, and fittings for the best bespoke tailoring in London, it’s all a far cry from Rory’s humble upbringing. Piece by piece, Rory and Jack’s dream of a simple winter wedding is fading fast.

Rory is Jack’s everything. Sweet, kind, and totally adorable, Rory is all Jack has ever wanted. And what Jack wants most of all is to give the man he loves the wedding day of his dreams - which means taking a stand against the indomitable Diana.

Warning: this story contains two gorgeous men, a mountain of festive food, a punk rocker Christmas fairy called Bunty, and a snowy Christmas wedding. No cliff hangers, and 100 percent Happy Ever After guaranteed.

Wonderful story, characters and audio performance!

I love everything that this author has written but have to admit that the Rory & Jack series may be my favorite, or at least tied with Barista Boys. ❤ A Christmas Wedding was brought to life all over again for me by the talented Dan Calley. He had me in tears more than once and I am so happy I listened to this book!

I pretty much said it all when I reviewed the eBook back in November 2019. My review from then is shown below.

I really love Rory and Jack. ❤

I fell in love with Rory and Jack a year ago when Ms. Ryecart wrote her first Christmas story, A Kiss Before Christmas. Next, she wrote a follow-up Easter story for them, An Easter Promise, which I also loved.

A Christmas Wedding has Rory and Jack getting ready for their big day, a simple wedding on Christmas Eve. Things don't go exactly as planned after Rory and Jack agree to let Jack's mother handle the wedding arrangements. You really can read this book as a standalone but you will be missing a couple of great stories if you don't read books one and two first.

The blurb for the book gives you the details you need. The other things you need to know are how absolutely devoted to one another Jack and Rory are. They've made a good life in the two years they've been together and their business is flourishing.

Ms. Ryecart usually likes to have a good bit of angst in her stories so a part of me kept waiting for something big to happen. I don't think it's spoiling anything to say that there is no major angsty event – just a few little bumps in the road – enough to keep things interesting.

The last few chapters of this story really got to me and started the happy tears flowing. There is the best surprise ever during the wedding but I'm not telling what it is.

A copy of this audio book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Delicious Listening

I was so excited to read this as I enjoyed the previous two books and was eager to hear more. Rory's delicious cakes made me want to rush out to my nearest baker's to stock up. Rory and Jack are now the proud owners of their own bakery and they couldn't be happier. They are heading to a Christmas wedding but Jack's mum, who is organising their wedding, is making the count down to the day when they become husbands a little difficult. She means well taking on the work of pulling the wedding together but sometimes she forgets that the two most important people in this wedding would like a say in what goes on. There are a few surprises from both sides. Rory has to get used to becoming a De Lacy and stepping into a world of bespoke tailors and handmade shoes. Jack's sister, Caroline, is there to be his support and another De Lacy family member puts in an unexpected but very welcome appearance on the day. This all adds up to another very enjoyable journey into Rory and Jack's world. Read by the wonderful, Dan Calley, we're once again in snowy pre Christmas London and what a delight it is. I'm hoping that we might get another installment of this story which I have enjoyed reading and can highly recommend. AE Ryecart draws us into the world of these two young men so well that I feel I know them and will find their baker's shop on my next visit to London. Oh, and the Barrista Boys get a mention too. Well done, Ali and Dan.

Aww the series has finished...

This one brought tears to me, I won't say which part as I'm sure you will know when you hear it. I love the nod to the other book series Barista Boys, if you haven't read those then download them today.
Jack and Rorys story comes to a beautiful conclusion. With a few ohhs and ahhs on the way. A little twist in the middle. A pushy mother in law to be, Lady Diana is a true force of nature. I have truly loved this series and can't wait to read the next series. Dan Calley did a sterling job as always with this book.

I never knew audio could improve a book!

Wow. I’m not a huge audiobook fan, but I was offered a review copy of A Christmas Wedding and, because I love Jack and Rory and enjoyed listening to the two previous audiobooks, I accepted. And I had an epiphany – Dan Calley brought something to the audio version that even improved on the written word. This story, which takes place two years after Jack finds Rory freezing on his doorstep, details the last few weeks before their wedding – exhaustion, overwork, contention with Diana, and the pure abiding love that they share, all included. The detail that struck me most was that, while Dan still uses the same voice for Rory that he has throughout the series, I realized that Rory sounds self-confident and sure now, certain of his place and his true partnership with Jack regardless of the surface issues that might appear to divide them. I enjoyed the knowledge that Rory no longer feels that divide, that he has embraced their partnership and is not entering marriage as a lesser party. What a gift Dan has given to Rory, and to the listener! And what a story - low angst, with a guaranteed happy ending, the conclusion is simply, perfectly beautiful.

Wedding Fluff

A Christmas Wedding was the third book in the Rory and Jack series and it is a sweet and fluffy conclusion to the trilogy. Rory and Jack have everything they want: they are in love and own their own successful business. There is some drama with the wedding and family matters, but all in all, this final book is just full of sweetness and fluff. It was a perfect Christmas story.

The audiobook was narrated by Dan Calley who did a great job with the audiobook. Dan voiced each character perfectly and really brought to life all the joy and drama of the story. The audiobook production was well done and it made for a fantastic listening experience.

Read the prior 2 novellas for max enjoyment

After 2 years, starting from Jack coming home to a homeless Rory on his doorstep to them falling in love to starting a business together to their wedding, this is one couple that deserves their special day. The story did not need the drama of Diana's helpful overexposure, but it did not detract from the overall story.
At the end of this tale, Ali Ryecart is hinting at something, which I am interested to hear her take on going forward. It's a controversial topic and very painful for LGBT couples due to the real life drama that happens from legal issues. I do want Jack and Rory to have their happy ending with the full spread of experience.

Weddings Never Go Smoothly.

Jack and Rory are getting married! A simple and small wedding on Christmas Eve. Except Lady Diana De Lacy is taking care of the big as Rory and Jack are busy with their new bakery.
Needless to say, Rory and Jack find they have not a Bridezilla on their hands but Mumzilla, and one who wants her son to have a beautiful wedding day.
Once again A.E. Ryecart brings humor, a bit of family drama and lots of love to this story. And not to mention the desire for mince pies and all the goodies Rory bakes! My craving for cupcakes and treats are right up there with a need for more of these two men!!
Dan Calley's narration is fantastic as always.
Can't recommend this series enough, I love listening to all of these books numerous times! Just so well done and enjoyable!!
P.S. Rory and Jack's Goodies (i.e. cookbook) is SOOOO needed! 😉
