Last week, I shared that I was enjoying a novella, A December Wedding from the series A Year of Weddings. I've since read the other two novellas from the series that I had to review. And I have to say that I really liked all of these.
All of the novellas are by different Christian romance authors, so each one has it's own special tone and themes.
A January Bride is by Deborah Raney. In this novella there is a twist to the romance when a friendship over exchanged letters leads to a case of mistaken identity. I loved the two main characters in this one also, and the relationship development over the letters made this romance different from many.
A February Bride is by Betsy St. Amant. I believe that this is my favorite of all. When I read the synopsis, I wasn't sure. The relationship between the main characters is already established when the story begins. They were engaged- until Allie runs right before the wedding begins. Allie's family has a history of broken relationships, and she believes that she's doomed to repeat the pattern. Although I wasn't sure about it, I really loved this one with very likable characters and themes of forgiveness and redemption. I could relate to Allie and her negative self talk, and I really liked the way this one turned out.
I'm looking forward to finding more of these throughout the year.
