Review: Winter Brides: A Year of Weddings Novella Collection
Winter Brides: A Year of Weddings Novella Collection by Denise Hunter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this compilation of three of the A Year of Weddings novellas.
It starts with A December Bride - the story of Layla and Seth. Layla recruits Seth to go with her to the wedding of her ex-fiance and her cousin. Seth has been in love with Layla for awhile but he just happens to have been the best friend of said ex-fiance until he jilted Layla for her cousin. So now Seth has to convince Layla that he didn't have anything to do with the breakup. Seth and Layla pretend to be engaged to impress her family and a prospective client for Layla. As they spend time together over the next few weeks, Layla begins to realize that Seth is the one she should have been with to begin with.
Second is A January Bride - the sweet story of two people who get to know each other through notes before they ever meet. Both have preconceived ideas about who the other is. I really liked how this one was written and it was fun when they actually meet.
Last is A February Bride - The story of Allie Andrews, a runaway bride. Because of her family history of failed marriages, Allie doesn't feel like she can make it work and so she runs away. Four months later, she's thrown back into the company of her ex-fiance when his sister asks Allie to be her maid of honor. Marcus sets out to prove to Allie that they do still belong together. A sweet story about overcoming your past.
