An October Bride

GIVEAWAY

 GANSHERT, KATIE
AN OCTOBER BRIDE

What if the only way you could make your father’s last wish come true . . . was to marry the man of your dreams?

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?

My Review:

Please note: available in ebook format only

Kudos to the author for engaging my emotions in such a short word count. This novella reads with all the satisfaction found in a novel length story. Told in first person point of view, it's all about Emma. We watch events unfold through her eyes only and that creates a lovely intimate reading experience.  An October Bride is a bittersweet love story packed with valuable life lessons and the hope that comes from truly believing. Delectable.
