A February Bride

Book description:  "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?"

My review:  This is the third novella in the "A Year of Weddings" series that I have read.  While it is not my favorite, A February Bride is still very good.  This particular novella fell into the "trap" that a lot of novellas fall into, the book wasn't long enough to develop the plot.  I really enjoyed the book, but I think it needed to be a full-length novel.  It is a fun story, and I loved the plot and the characters.  The author seems to have a great sense of humor and it shows in her writing.  If you need a quick easy read, this one fits the bill, but expect to be disappointed that it wasn't longer.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
