Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at three winter weddings . . .
A December Bride by Denise Hunter When Layla O’Reilly and Seth Murphy make their engagement public, she knows it’s only to convince a major client that she’s high-society enough to work for his agency. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, but she’s never given him the time of day. For Layla, this romantic illusion is the chance to save her career. And for Seth, it’s the chance to finally win her heart.
A January Bride by Deborah Raney Novelist Madeleine Houser arranges a temporary office in a local bed and breakfast to escape the distracting renovations on her own house. Although she’s never laid eyes on the inn’s owner, an unlikely friendship blossoms between them as they leave daily notes for each other, and before long, Maddie finds herself falling for her mysterious host—a man likely many years her senior—and a man she’s never even met.
A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant History repeats itself when Allie Andrews escapes the church on her wedding day—wearing the same dress passed down for generations of women in her family, all women with histories of failed marriages. Allie loves Marcus but fears she’s destined to repeat her family’s mistakes. When thrown unexpectedly together for a wedding months later, Allie and Marcus discover their own story might be far from over.
These three novellas were very good! I read all of them in a matter of days.
A December Bride was definitely my favorite. Layla and Seth were super cool main characters. I just wanted to keep reading and reading. The fact that they are pretending to be engaged is hilarious and sweet at the same time. I wanted this book to be a full-length novel just because of how good it was.
A January Bride was probably my least favorite. It seemed to be a little “too quick” of a story. It was only okay. I never got to really “know” the characters. It was like “Hey, nice to meet you, let uss fall in love, the end.”
A February Bride was right in the middle. It wasn’t my favorite, but it wasn’t my least favorite. There is always the “middle book” of the group, especially when there are only three books. The plot was kind of confusing. I think it would have been better if it had been a full-length novel.
The cover was okay. I mean, it was kind of plain. So, I will give it 2 stars. It would have been better if it had some more color.
As for the book, I will give it…3 stars. It would have gotten 4 stars if I would have liked A February Bride better. And, it would have gotten 5 if I liked A January Bride better.
