A December Bride by Denise Hunter ~ Book Review

Book Summary:

Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at a December wedding.

Every couple has a love story. Join us for a year of contemporary, seasonal wedding novellas, releasing in e-book every month. Each e-novella will include an excerpt from another wedding story in the Year of Weddings Collection as well as a list of the author’s full-length novels.

What started as a whim turned into an accidental - and very public - engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the facade in Chapel Springs this holiday season - for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?

Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy, the best friend of Layla O'Reilly's ex-fiance would be the last person she'd marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency, a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she'll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she's landed her client. For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.

A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.

This is the first book in a series of Bride books by different authors. Each month there will be a new book. They are novella's and can be read in an evening. A December Bride was a great little read and a fresh storyline. The author does a good job at introducing us to the main character and the storyline of this book without making it too long. I felt even though it is a novella I was able to connect with the main characters. It takes place over a few weeks and really is a sweet romance. I felt captured from the first page and felt the storyline flowed at a nice pace to keep the reader interested with enough detail to learn about the characters and their past but not distract from the story.

I look forward to checking out more books by this author and also more books in this series. A December Bride is a story of lies, hopes and love. 

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
