To Have & To Hold Book Review

They’ve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.
Love Takes the Cake: A September Wedding Story by Betsy St. Amant
Charlotte Cantrell is always the baker; never the bride. When Will, a regular at Charlotte’s bakery, catches her attention, she can only hope that he is the reliable man this single mother has always hoped to find. The problem is that he’s regularly stopping in to buy cookies for another girl. But when Charlotte is hired to bake a host of wedding goodies for a difficult bride and finds out Will is the best man, she has the perfect opportunity to get to know him better—and find out how serious Will is about this other girl in his life.
The Perfect Arrangement: An October Wedding Story by Katie Ganshert
Amelia Woods is a small-town wallflower and the proud owner of Forget-Me-Nots, a quaint flower shop. Her love life has always been a bit lackluster—until she ends up in an embarrassing fender-bender with handsome Nate Gallagher. Meanwhile, Amelia’s younger brother, William, has proposed to his girlfriend. Amelia would be excited except she has evidence that the fiancĂ©e is not who she says she is. It seems Nate is the only one available for any advice-giving, and he’s good at it—and pretty fun to talk to too. As Amelia works to craft the perfect flower arrangements for other people, she begins to wonder if real love is better than the dream. And if it is, will Nate still be interested when he learns who she is?
Love in the Details: A November Wedding Story by Becky Wade
When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over. Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she longs to be with Josh but doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her smalltown world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn?

My Thoughts: 
All three of these Novella's are fantastic! First, you can't pick a favorite author because all three are brilliant writers! Second, all three novella's set the mood for a fantastic fall wedding story that is like no other. Are you in the mood to kick off fall with some romance? Look no more! "To Have and To Hold" has three different stories that will capture your heart and your mind for a few hours keeping you busy as your turn the pages. You'll fall in love with Will and you can't help but dream of the amazing bakery Charlotte has. If the smell doesn't capture your attention, Will has a way of captivating your heart. Did I mention Amelia has a beautiful flower shop that smell as pretty as she does, but will Nate think so? And if you haven't had enough yet, you should really run into Josh.. Or maybe Holly.. Enough said.. You'll fall in love with each of these three weddings! I promise! I give this book 5/5 stars. I enjoyed each Novella by three fabulous authors! Thank you to the publishers for providing me a complimentary copy for review purposes.
