A June Bride

A June Bride written by Marybeth Whalen was not as enjoyable to read as the previous novellas in the A Year of Weddings series.

The author tells the tale of Wynne Hardy, a woman who after a breakup  becomes part of a realty show.  Although Wynne chooses a man to marry, she learns that life is not a bed of roses.

When her new fiance becomes involved with another realty show star and her ex-boyfriend re-enters the picture, Wynne is faced with an important decision to make!

Stuck Together

Stuck Together is the final book in the Trouble In Texas series by Mary Connealy

I have always enjoyed reading Mary Connealy's novels; however, reading Stuck Together proved difficult for me.  I was not drawn into the storyline until I was about 100 pages into the book!

I have not read the first 2 books in this series yet; however, this last book seemed to draw all 3 books together to a final conclusion.

Four Weddings and a Kiss

Four Weddings and a Kiss is a recent novel written by four of my favorite Christian authors.  Each of these novellas take you to a different place and time to meet some very interesting characters!

First, Mary Connealy tells the story of Maizy and Rylan in Spitfire Sweetheart. You discover that after Rylan breaks his leg trying to save Maisy from a grizzly bear, Maizy attempts to help him save his ranch.  Before they know it, they have fallen in love with each other!  You know that wedding bells are not far ahead!

Second, you meet Molly and Jack in A Love Letter to the Editor, written by Robin Lee Hatcher.  Molly is upset that her father gave the job of editor of their local newspaper to someone new, Jack, instead of to her.
Enjoy this tale as Molly learns that good gifts sometimes come where bad is expected!

Next, you are introduced to Katie and Treb in A Cowboy for Katie, written by Debra Clopton.  Katie had just lived through a terrible tornado, that unfortunately killed her father and destroyed her home!  The entire town is calling her crazy Katie for the way she keeps talking to herself and threatens the men who come calling.  When Treb arrives in town after his horse dies, he needs both a job and new horse.  Katie offers him both. This is a sweet story as Treb helps Katie overcome the trauma she has endured!

Finally, Margaret Brownley shares her tale about Grace and Brock in Courting Trouble.  After Grace is accused of murdering her husband, her son, Jesse, begs the newest lawyer in town, Brock Daniels, for help!  You will enjoy this story as Brock goes against the backwards law in this small western town!
