I received the latest A Year of Weddings Novella, "A September Bride" written by Kathryn Springer from Booklook Bloggers in order for me to review it.
Annie Price has just moved to Red Leaf to become the manager of the Second Story bookstore and realized that she has finally found a home where people welcome her and accept her. Officer Jesse Kent has been away for 3 weeks for training. When he returns, the way things have always been aren't the same. He has a hard time trusting people because of someone who took advantage of them when he was younger, so he is suspicious of Annie especially when she seems to be the cause for his mother breaking out of her routine life. When Jesse and Annie are paired up for a mock wedding, will they find themselves wanting the real thing?
I liked "A September Bride" and felt like the characters were real and believable. I liked Annie's quirkiness and Jesse's serious side (until you got to know him)The story didn't feel rushed or lacking even though it was a novella. I am again disappointed that we didn't get to see the wedding so she isn't really a September bride yet. Even though the novellas all end with a "happily ever after" not all of them have a wedding and I think that they should always end with the actual wedding!
