A May Bride
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?
This was a good book and very easy read. Once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. Ellie is very independent and does everything she can to make it on her own. When she's caught gardening in a garden that isn't hers she meets the man of her dreams. The only problem is he sees how her mother controls her even if Ellie's done everything to keep her out of her life. When she's given the choice to stay on her mother's short string or marry Gray she has a harder time making the decision than she realized she would.
