This is a classic chick-lit book with detailed characters, a feel-good romantic story, and picturesque scenes. The book is called Hochzeit aus heiterem Himmel, and it was written by Nelly Berlin. A close translation of the title would be something like ‘wedding out of the blue.’ It’s a love story between a movie star who is running away from fame, the paparazzi, and a young duke. The story is set on the coast of the Mediterranean in a fictional little country. But it has scenes in Washington DC, Paris, London, and Berlin.
The storyline is sunny and funny, not cheeky and flippant. Even though there were many elements to choose from, it was clear to me that the main character was the most important. And so I wanted viewers to feel her heartwarming presence. Then, the next thing I focused on was the idea of traveling, even romance but without a specific clichee item. A funky suitcase, Paris, and a movie strip were perfect to complete the mood I was going for.
Unfortunately, I don’t know German so I wasn’t able to read Hochzeit aus heiterem Himmel yet. I sure hope Nelly and her team will release an English version soon. However, I absolutely loved every second of our collaboration! I am so proud to be a part of this sweet book.
