I have very much enjoyed the other books in the Year of Weddings collection that I have had an opportunity to read so I was happy to have a chance to review this one. It arrived just in time too, right before we left on vacation. It made a great light hearted read at the little lake front cabin we stayed at. Each of the stories had a little twist that made them different from your traditional wedding story. Although each of the stories was a short novella, the stories were written in a way that didn't make you feel like you were rushed through the story or left hanging wondering what happened. Great characters and sweet, interesting stories. I loved it! I am so glad they have published these stories into collections for those of us that like a longer read.
