An October Bride - A Year of Weddings Novella - by Katie Ganshert
About the book:
She wants to make her father's dream come true. She doesn't realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.
Emma Tate isn't a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they're getting married-so Emma's dying father can walk her down the aisle.
While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications-the biggest being their true feelings for each other.
In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father's dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future.
I loved this novella! Katie Ganshert has a wonderful way of writing and this story had so much heart! Emma is grieving her father, who doesn't have long, while wanting to do something for him. The scenes with her father were very touching. She also struggles with not letting her arrangement with Jake become too real as she's sure he has no romantic feelings towards her. I loved the strong emphasis on faith, with her father trusting God in each day while Emma struggles with this. There were a few cute romantic moments and the scene where they reveal their feelings was wonderful! I hope we get to see a story about her brother and best friend. This was one of my favorites in the series and I highly recommend it!
I received this e-book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
