From the publisher:
Emma Tate has just moved on from one fiancé, so when she announces a sudden engagement to her lifelong buddy Jake Sawyer, every busybody in Mayfair goes into high alert. Of course, no one but Jake and Emma know the real reason they’re getting married—so Emma’s dying father will have a chance to walk her down the aisle.
But while Jake and Emma move forward with their plan—and frantically plan an October wedding—it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications . . . the biggest being their true feelings for each other.
With dubious friends, deliriously thrilled parents, and a town that won’t keep its nose out of their business, Emma and Jake will have a lot to contend with if they’re going to pull this off. The real question is: Who wants this wedding more, Emma’s dad . . . or Emma?
This is the novella that I have enjoyed the most from this year of Weddings so far and I have read each one that has come out.
This novella had me laughing out loud to myself as I read it and enjoying the foreshadowing and little hints of love from Jake and Emma's past.
Katie Ganshert writes the perfect novella that leaves you wishing it was a full length novel, but yet as a reader you are able to fully enjoy it as it is. The romance between Kate and Jake isn't a "whirlwind" as some novellas are, but instead has been growing for a long time. Katie Ganshert also weaves in faith and trust in God as Emma deals with her father's terminal illness.
An October Bride is a sweet and faith inspiring romance that is enjoyable and engaging from start to finish.
I received this ebook from BookLookBlogger in exchange for my honest review.
