I received a copy of A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
History repeats itself when this bride runs out of the church on her wedding day---in the same dress that had been passed down for generations and worn by her mom, grandma and great-grandmother who also ran out of their weddings. The heroine struggles to break destructive cycles of the past. Can this bride shuck expectation and discover who SHE is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she finally walks down the aisle, what dress will she be wearing? Readers will enjoy this novel of redemption centered on a winter wedding.
This was another easy read that I got pulled into from the very beginning. I read it in one sitting it was that good. Allie is a run away bride who's family has a history of failed marriages. She's so afraid to repeat that history that she runs away from her wedding to save her groom Marcus. Four months later her best friend (and Marcus's sister) announces she's engaged. Hannah not only wants Allie to be her maid of honor she also wants to get married on Valentines Day - 5 weeks from now. Allie agrees to be Hannah's maid of honor but to help with all the wedding plans. While helping with Hannah's wedding Allie comes back into contact with Marcus. It becomes very obvious that neither Marcus or Allie's feelings for each other have faded. As Valentines Day come closer and closer so do Allie and Marcus. Can they work out their problems?
