Review: Kiss the Bride Three Summer Love Stories
Book Description "Meet the people who make it all happen—the planners, the photographers, the musicians who have helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples—as they find their own happy endings in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.
Picture Perfect Love: A June Wedding Story by Melissa McClone When image becomes everything, it’s up to love to refocus the heart. Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren’t always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away, but he wrongly blamed Jenna for ruining his political aspirations. Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?
I Hope You Dance: A July Wedding Story by Robin Lee Hatcher Can two left feet lead to one perfect romance? Grant Nichols is a genius in the kitchen and a klutz on the dance floor. But his friend’s wedding is shaping up to be a shindig the likes of which Kings Meadow has never seen—including dancing. Lots of dancing. Former rodeo queen Skye Foster is offering dance lessons for the wedding party. Grant and Skye are no match on paper. But when they step onto the dance floor, they create a melody all their own.
Love on a Deadline: An August Wedding Story by Kathryn Springer MacKenzie “Mac” Davis returns to her hometown of Red Leaf, Wisconsin, and takes a job at the weekly newspaper writing about social events. When Hollis Channing, Mac’s high school nemesis, returns to Red Leaf to marry her celebrity fiancé, the editor asks Mac to cover all the festivities for the newspaper. The last thing Mac wants to do is reconnect with the person who made her life miserable when she was a teenager . . . unless it’s spending time with Ethan Channing, the bride’s older brother—and Mac’s first crush.
I just love these Year of Weddings novella collections. Who doesn't love a great wedding story? I think the second year has been even better then the first. I love the perspective of those who usually work behind the scenes in the weddings being the ones getting married.
Those novellas in these books are not connected in any way. If you have read other books by the author you may see some familiar characters. I have read a book out of Robin Lee Hatcher's Kings Meadow series (and honestly after reading this it reminded me I need to read the others) and another story by Kathryn Springer that took place in Red Leaf Wisconsin. Both of these stories has familiar characters in them, but you do not have to read the other books in order to understand and enjoy the story. I loved each one of these novellas . Great, light, happy-ever-after summer reading that all carry a message with them. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
