A February Bride

St. Amant, Betsy. A February Wedding: A Year of Weddings Novella. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan. 2014.

SUMMARY:
FebbrideJilted at the last moment at the altar, Marcus Hall never saw it coming. His future bride, Allie Andrews, just couldn’t marry him and put him through the Andrew’s family curse so she ran (actually drove) fast away. Over the course of the next months, Allie and Marcus cross paths in some not-so-traditional yet hilarious ways. Will love prevail over the jinx experienced by all the Andrew family women? Will Valentine’s Day prove to full of intended consequences?

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Cute, cute, cute! A perfect read for upcoming Valentine’s Day, A February Bride was my favorite novella included in the series so far. A new author for me, I am already looking forward to her upcoming novel, All’s Fair In Love And Cupcakes. I enjoyed the spunk, cleverness and light touch of romance with which this novella was written. I was able to read this book in just a brief sitting but finished it smiling! Definitely worth the time to enjoy!

RATING:
4 (out of 5) pennies

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
A cute yet predictable novella, December Bride was an enjoyable read during a busy time of year. Part of the series, A Year of Weddings Novellas, I look forward to the next novella, starting with A January Bride. I plan on reading all of the stories in the series as there are several of my favorite authors included.
