Review: February Bride by Betsy St Amant

Book Description

Allie left the love of her life at the altar - to save him from a lifetime of heartbreak. When a Valentine's Day wedding brings them back together, she struggles against her family's destructive history. Can Allie ever realize that a marriage is so much more than a wedding dress?
History repeats itself when Allie Andrews escapes the church on her wedding day - in the same dress passed down for generations and worn by all the women in her family - women with a long history of failed marriages. Allie loves Marcus but fears she's destined to repeat her family's mistakes. She can't bear to hurt Marcus worse.
Marcus Hall never stopped loving Allie and can only think of one reason she left him at the altar - him. When the two are thrown together for his sister's Valentine's Day wedding, he discovers the truth and realizes their story might be far from over. Can Allie shuck expectation and discover who she is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she ever walks down the aisle, what dress will she wear?
This is the third book on the Year of Weddings series.  The series is made up of short novellas and a new one is released each month by a different author.  This is a very short, quick read at only 92 pages including an excerpt from a December bride.  A February Bride would have to take place around Valentine's Day, a day for romance.  In Hannah's wedding, Allie has an opportunity for a second chance if she is brave enough to take it.  A February Bride is a good story of second chances, redemption, and being made anew.
