A December Bride - A Year of Weddings Novella - by Denise Hunter
About the book:
What started as a whim turned into an accidental---and very public---engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season---for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?
Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy - the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé - would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency - a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.
For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.
I absolutely loved this book! The romance was wonderful! I loved the plot and enjoyed watching Seth try to win over Layla while she tried to keep him at arm's length. It was amusing to see the predicaments they got themselves into. The characters were great, the writing wonderful, and the story didn't feel rushed even though this is a novella. I loved that Seth reminded Layla how special she is to God, even though she felt rejected by her ex-fiance and others. This is a very fun, lighthearted story that I will read again and again. Denise Hunter is one of my favorite authors and this story is a great example why. This is only available as an e-book. Do not miss it!
I received a free kindle copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
