Review: Spring Brides
"Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at three spring weddings .
A March Bride by Rachel Hauck Susanna Truitt (Once Upon a Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She'll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna's heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God's plan for her.
An April Bride by Lenora Worth Bride-to-be Stella Carson cannot wait another day to marry soldier Marshall Henderson. But when Marshall returns home to Louisiana, it becomes clear to them both that he is not the man he used to be. With only weeks until the wedding, Stella and Marshall must choose between a marriage built on the past and faith in long-ago love or a very different future than the one Stella imagined.
A May Bride by Meg Moseley Ellie Martin, a country girl living in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life, but she's missing a key ingredient to her plans for the future: a groom. Then Ellie meets Gray Whitby-at a wedding of all places. But when Ellie jeopardizes her own future for the sake of her sister, Gray feels like he'll always be second to Ellie's family. Can Ellie and Gray find their own way together amidst the demands and perceptions of others, or will their romance end before it has truly begun?"
I admit that the main reason that I wanted to review this book was because I wanted to read A March Bride. I have loved everything I have read by Rachel Hauck and since I had read the other books in The Royal Wedding Series, I just had to read about Nathaniel and Susanna's wedding. It did not disappoint. It was everything I had hoped for and more!
The other two wedding novellas were like bonus books to me. I enjoyed Stella and Marshall's story and how the author reconciled their situation. I did not love A May Bride. I found the whole guerrilla wedding thing odd, and I did not like how the author portrayed Ellie's mother. I think it was an attempt at writing a wedding story so that it would be original. I can honestly say that I have never read another one like it before.
