This story follows Samantha, who owns a hedgehog rescue centre, and Phoebe who is doing work experience there while studying to become an accountant. We also meet Samantha’s fiancé (the wedding in the title is Samantha and Josh) and various family members and friends. It is a lovely community and we soon come to know them all and care about them.
This is the fourth book in the Hedgehog Hollow series and I wish I had read the first three before, so I knew everyone better and had followed their stories in chronological order, though I managed well enough reading this as a standalone.
I absolutely LOVED the characters, they are all so vivid and realistic. I ended up becoming so annoyed with two of the characters, that I was getting rather cross at their actions and had to take a break! That’s how realistic they are. (Tina and Jenny, look out for them!)
The hedgehogs are also adorable additions to the story and I felt I learnt a lot about them while reading it. There’s also some information about them at the end of the book, which is worth your time too.
It’s an easy novel to get into and I read it over two or three days, because I felt invested in the story and wanted (needed!) to know what was going to happen. I would definitely read more of her books.

A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow
It’s time for the wedding we’ve all been waiting for…
Life at Hedgehog Hollow is never dull, although Samantha hopes that the new year ahead will be a little less chaotic as she prepares to marry the love of her life, Josh. But disaster strikes when she checks the rescue centre’s bank account after the festive season and discovers it has been emptied. Who would do such a thing, and why? With the future of Hedgehog Hollow now in jeopardy, planning a wedding has lost its shine.
Phoebe is desperate to escape the shadow of her family, infamously known for their attacks on Samantha’s beloved rescue centre. Could the kindness of the Hedgehog Hollow team be the chance she needs for a fresh start, or will her family’s secrets continue to drag her back?
