Book Review: "An August Bride" by Debra Clopton

"An August Bride" by Debra Clopton is the next installment in the "A Year of Weddings Novella" series (Book 9).

Kelsey Wilcox hated weddings, and cowboys, and ranching.  That's why she moved to Corpus Christi and started her bistro in the first place - to get away from the ranching lifestyle.  So why does she keep thinking about Brent Corbin, a very hunky cowboy after meeting him at her cousin's wedding?  Will Brent be able to patiently wear away Kelsey fear of all things cowboy?

I enjoyed reading "An August Bride".  It was a quick read (being a novella!) which is nice when you want to have a good romance story without spending a lot of time to get to the happily ever after.  Kelsey's aunt and her friends are known as the "Matchmakin' Posse of Mule Hollow" and they throw their best efforts towards getting Kelsey and Brent together and they were like your own crazy aunt with their quirky ways.  I liked the characters and felt like a part of the story while waiting to see if they'd get together (Which you assume since a happily ever after is expected in the series!)  There was an August wedding, but it was the cousin's wedding and not our hero and heroine, so she isn't really an August Bride, which I kind of missed.  If it's a story about a "month" bride, then I think there should be a wedding and several of the books in the series haven't had a wedding at the end.  But I still liked the story, just wished for that extra step at the end!
