A May Bride

Author: Meg Moseley
Publisher: Zondervan
April 2014
Genre: Contemporary romance novella

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

She thinks she has prepared for her wedding all her life...but it seems she may have forgotten the most important part.

Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life—a wedding just like the one her younger sister is planning back home. Their single mom will pay for Alexa's wedding, but Ellie started her own wedding fund years ago. She only needs to find a groom.

At a wedding at her church, Ellie bumps into a man who's one of the guests. She's noticed him around the neighborhood, but today he introduces himself as Gray Whitby. They embark on a whirlwind romance, but her mother doesn't trust freewheeling men like Gray.

When Ellie risks her own future for her sister's sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle to Ellie's family? Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they've begun come crashing down?

A MAY BRIDE is the sixth book in the Year of Weddings. I enjoyed reading this book. My favorite one is still A December Bride, but this one was one of the top three. Ellie is impulsive, devoted to family, and a spendthrift. Gray is fly-by-the-seat-of-pants, live-for-the-moment, and thrifty. He’s also easily hurt when he doesn’t get his way. And Ellie tends to take over. The mother was overbearing and judgmental.

However, the story was very well-written, I loved the chemistry between Ellie and Gray and I loved Pastor Michael. I also loved Ellie’s secret habit of weeding gardens for churches she doesn’t attend. I recommend A MAY BRIDE.

If you love the Year of Weddings series, you won’t want to miss A MAY BRIDE. It is cute, believable, with flawed characters, and a quick read. $3.79. 102 pages, including an excerpt from The June Bride.
