A May Bride

Book description:  "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?"
My review:  A May Bride is another good novella from the "A Year of Brides" series.  This one has a unique plot that shows that romance doesn't always run smoothly, and the family dynamics play a huge role in the relationship.  I enjoyed this novella, but it is not better than A March Bride.  That one is still my favorite. Though novellas tend to be a little rushed, this one didn't feel as rushed as some.  I also found A May Bride to be very down-to-earth.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
