The February Bride by Betsy St. Amant


The February Bride by Betsy St. Amant

A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. 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?

  

Here’s my review of this enchanting Valentine’s Day novella:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Betsy St. Amant and her publisher for sending me a copy of "The February Bride" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
Second, I’d like to say that I’ve never read anything by Becky St. Amant, but I will be on the lookout for her books in the future.  She is eloquent, witty and her writing translates to a vivid picture in my mind’s eye.
Four months after Allie ran out of her own wedding to spare her fiancĂ©, Marcus, from a fate worse than death – divorce, she meets her friend (and Marcus’ sister) Hannah thinking that she’s going to be the recipient of a “piece of her mind”.  Rather than a tongue-lashing, she learns that Hannah is going to be married.  The events that follow before the wedding find Allie in Marcus’ company again and the spark is still there in spite of Allie leaving him at the altar.Show more

This novella was another terrific read in this series.  Engaging and short enough to be read in a single sitting.  I totally recommend any of these monthly romances for an entertaining escape.
