Book description: "She wants to make her father's dream come true. She doesn't realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.
Emma Tate isn't a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they're getting married-so Emma's dying father can walk her down the aisle.
While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications-the biggest being their true feelings for each other.
In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father's dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future."
My review: This is one of the novellas in "A Year of Weddings" that I love. I love the story, the characters, and the ending. A lot of novellas are not easily developed in a short amount of space, but Katie Ganshert did a great job developing An October Bride. I have enjoyed reading her novels in the past and I certainly enjoyed reading An October Bride. I read the whole book in one sitting on this rainy afternoon. If you need something quick to read that will pull you in and hold your interest until the end of the book, this is the book for you. 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.
