By Kathryn Springer, Katie Ganshert, Beth K. Vogt

Book Description Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at three autumn weddings . . . Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at three autumn weddings . . .

A September Bride by Kathryn Springer When Annie moves to Red Leaf, she’s ready to call the little town home. Deputy Jesse Kent can’t believe his mother has handed the keys to her bookshop over to a woman she met on the internet. Jesse has seen his mother taken advantage of before, and he decides to keep a close eye on this Annie Price. But when a close eye turns into a historical wedding reenactment with Jesse and Annie as the couple, make-believe nuptials quickly give way to real-life emotions.

An October Bride by Katie Ganshert 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.

A November Bride by Beth K. Vogt Having celebrated the big 3–0 by ending a relationship, Sadie is tired of romantic relationships-by-text. The only man she knows willing to put down his iPhone and have face-to-face conversations with her is Erik. It’s time to put a 21st-century twist on the Sadie Hawkins’ tradition of a woman going after her man. But when he realizes he’s fallen for her, can Erik convince Sadie his just-for-fun dates were the prelude to “’til death do us part”?

 My Review:

I found myself relating to Lorna Kent in September Bride who had a dream, but had a difficult time pursuing it. I enjoyed this novella and made me think about why we don't pursue our dreams?

In October Bride, I found myself wondering if I would be brave enough like Emma and willing to enter into a marriage because I found a bucket list of my fathers? This book was interesting because of their fake engagement and I found myself wondering would I be willing to do the same for my dying father? 

 In November Bride, I loved how the Novella ended with a surprise engagement party, which ended up to be more than what Sadie bargained for, but she was happy. 

 Overall, I enjoyed each of these Novella's and they taught me different lessons throughout the stories of each of the characters. If you're looking for some great stories, you'll love these quick reads! I cannot wait for the next installment of short Novella's called "A Season to Wed." Thank you to Zondervan for allowing me to review this book! 5 stars! You won't be disappointed!
