A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant ~ Book Review

Book Summary:

Happily ever after guaranteed. Allie left the love of her life at the altar—to save him from a lifetime of heartbreak. When a Valentine’s Day wedding brings them back together, she struggles against her family’s destructive history. Can Allie ever realize that a marriage is so much more than a wedding dress? History repeats itself when Allie Andrews escapes the church on her wedding day—in the same dress passed down for generations and worn by all the women in her family—women with a long history of failed marriages. Allie loves Marcus, but fears she’s destined to repeat her family’s mistakes. She can’t bear to hurt Marcus worse. Marcus Hall never stopped loving Allie and can only think of one reason she left him at the altar—him. When the two are thrown together for his sister’s Valentine’s Day wedding, he discovers the truth and realizes their story might be far from over. 

Can Allie shuck expectation and discover who she is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she ever walks down the aisle, what dress will she wear?

This is the third novella in the Bride series. I am really enjoying all these short stories especially and the intro into many great authors I haven't read before.
 This story jumps right into the story without wasting time. We are introduced to Allie as she is getting herself ready to walk down the aisle to marry Marcus instead she hikes up her wedding dress and runs out of the church.

The story was well written and the characters were well developed for a novella. Keeping this short and sweet. It is a clean Christian romance for the young and old. I found the story very believable to real life situations a little rushed in the end but a great read. The author made me feel for Marcus after Allie left him without an explanation. There were a few times I wanted to give Allie a bit of a shake and say "you really want to throw this man again because of your families mistakes?".

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars!
