Book Review: "All Dressed Up in Love" by Ruth Logan Herne

I look forward to reading each month's novella in the A Year of Weddings Novella 2 series. This year they deal with those who help orchestra other people's dream weddings getting their own happily ever after. "All Dressed Up in Love" by Ruth Logan Herne is the novella for March.

Greg Elizondo is right at home taking point on a business merger, but when he faces the list of appointments for bridal fittings at his mother's bridal shop with no one to work them, he is in over his head. When Tara Simonetti walks in in response to his help wanted posting, it was a life saver. Tara plans on heading back to Pennsylvania to give them an honest lawyer her family didn't have when they needed one. Greg is a ladder climbing lawyer, they couldn't be more different. As they work to save Elena's Bridal, their feelings for each other grow. But with their goals set in such opposite directions, how will God work it out?

I enjoyed reading "All Dressed Up in Love". I liked Tara's spirit and upbeat attitude and Greg's gentle heart inside the all business exterior. The book made me think a little of the movie "Pretty Woman" with the similarity between Richard Gere's character and Greg. The book had a nice flow and a wonderful cast of characters (main and supporting). The romance happens very quickly, but it is a novella, so things have to move along faster than in a full length novel. It was nice to be able to read a fun love story in an evening.

I would recommend "All Dressed Up in Love" to others who like Inspirational novellas.
