Who Doesn't Love Weddings??? AND a Giveaway of a Kindle Fire!!

      "A Season to Wed"
     A Collection of Novellas 
        By:  Rachel Hauck
               Cindy Kirk
               Cheryl Wyatt

What woman doesn't love to read about weddings??? I sure know that I do! Stories of romance, preparing for weddings, dreams coming true.... what could be better!!!  As soon as I realized that one of my favorite authors would be writing one of these novellas, I knew this book would be a winner. I was also thrilled to discover that the other two authors were equally great story tellers!!

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 at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk
Sometimes the road to happiness is paved with youthful mistakes.
Ten years after what she thought was her almost-wedding, Hope Prentiss discovers that the ceremony counted—and, as fate would have it, the jilted John Burke has just ridden back into town. After spending some time with John and helping plan a Christmas wedding for a mystery couple, Hope begins to wonder if she really wants a divorce . . . or a real wedding of her own.
A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck
Revealing the beauty in other women might be Ginger Winters’s specialty—but it will take an unexpected kind of love to help Ginger see the beauty in herself.
Ginger Winters will be the “beauty-maker” for the Alabama society wedding of the decade. But when high-school crush Tom Wells shows up looking for a haircut, Ginger’s thinly veiled insecurities threaten to keep her from love once again . . . despite Tom’s best efforts.
Serving Up a Sweetheart by Cheryl Wyatt
Meadow knows how to serve delicious food to match any wedding theme. But can she accept love when it’s served up on a silver platter?
Meadow Larson is having the mother of all Mondays when her roof caves in during a blizzard, right before the most important wedding contract of her career. Renovation contractor Colin McGrath offers to fix Meadow’s roof, even though he knows he is the last person she would accept help from.
But the more Meadow gets to know the new Colin, the more she realizes God may have something more permanent in store than a new catering kitchen.
My Thoughts:
I absolutely LOVE weddings!! So.... this book was a pleasure to read!! My only negative comment.. I finished it far too quickly!! All three of these authors write with fantastic creativity and detail. I quickly envisioned myself there with the characters. My criteria for a good book , is one that I become immersed in and can identify with the characters. These three short stories met that criteria within the first few pages.

 All three novellas were sweet love stories with just enough complications and challenges, to keep the reader enthralled. They are more than just simple romances. Life is full of mistakes, valleys of despair and troubles. How they are handled, is the important thing. God can take care of these situations without hesitation as He does in these stories. He takes the mistakes and turns them into something very special, however, only can do this if the individual will forgive and take a jump into faith. Love is always roller coasters, involving the highs and lows in emotions. We have to allow God to be the leader and follow His plans to work them out. All three authors , each in their own unique way, examined this and had the main characters follow through to a delightful wedding experience 

This book is definitely a winner!! Five stars!!!
