A May Bride - A Year of Weddings Novella - by Meg Moseley
About the book:
She thinks she has prepared for her wedding all her life . . . but it seems she may have forgotten the most important part.
Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life-a wedding just like the one her younger sister is planning back home. Their single mom will pay for Alexa's wedding, but Ellie started her own wedding fund years ago. She only needs to find a groom.
At a wedding at her church, Ellie bumps into a man who's one of the guests. She's noticed him around the neighborhood, but today he introduces himself as Gray Whitby. They embark on a whirlwind romance, but her mother doesn't trust freewheeling men like Gray.
When Ellie risks her own future for her sister's sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle to Ellie's family?
Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they've begun come crashing down?
I really enjoyed this fun, quirky story! I loved that Ellie and Gray met as she was secretly gardening on a church's property. The romance was cute, if quick, but that's understandable for a shorter story. Gray did seem a little too perfect, but I did love both characters. I felt bad for Ellie and her sister, but also for their mom and what she went through that made her distrust men. I have an overprotective mom, too, so I could empathize with the sisters to a degree. I liked that the story dealt with the sin of premarital sex, but also talked about grace and forgiveness. This is the third book of Moseley's that I've read and I've really enjoyed them all. This is also the third book I've read in the "Year of Weddings" series, which are all unrelated, and I would suggest checking out this book for sure and the series as a whole. I'm looking forward to my next one!
I received a kindle copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
