Summary

They’ve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.

Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk

Sometimes the road to happiness is paved with youthful mistakes.

Ten years after what she thought was her almost-wedding, Hope Prentiss discovers that the ceremony counted—and, as fate would have it, the jilted John Burke has just ridden back into town. After spending some time with John and helping plan a Christmas wedding for a mystery couple, Hope begins to wonder if she really wants a divorce . . . or a real wedding of her own.

A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck

Revealing the beauty in other women might be Ginger Winters’s specialty—but it will take an unexpected kind of love to help Ginger see the beauty in herself.

Ginger Winters will be the “beauty-maker” for the Alabama society wedding of the decade.

But when high-school crush Tom Wells shows up looking for a haircut, Ginger’s thinly veiled insecurities threaten to keep her from love once again . . . despite Tom’s best efforts.

Serving Up a Sweetheart by Cheryl Wyatt

Meadow knows how to serve delicious food to match any wedding theme. But can she accept love when it's served up on a silver platter?

Meadow Larson is having the mother of all Mondays when her roof caves in during a blizzard, right before the most important wedding contract of her career.

Renovation contractor Colin McGrath offers to fix Meadow’s roof, even though he knows he is the last person she would accept help from.

But the more Meadow gets to know the new Colin, the more she realizes God may have something more permanent in store than a new catering kitchen.

My Review

A SEASON TO WED was a cute and heartwarming compilation. Each story involved characters involved in weddings in some way: the first has a wedding venue, the second is the wedding beautician, and the third caters weddings. Revolving around weddings made for a fun theme. Each story was enjoyable in its own way, with Hauck's A Brush with Love being a favorite. Overall a sweet and inspiring set of stories.

Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk: I struggled with this story a little. The characters weren't always consistent and were overly dramatic in parts. The whole situation also felt off to me with characters finding love so easily and so quickly. It just made the story unrealistic and more difficult to really fall into. Having said that, it was still a really cute story and showed how fear can take over our lives if we let it.  

A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck: This was my favorite story from the set. Hauck always has a way with writing characters and situations that tug on the heart and this was very true here. I loved the teasing, the chemistry, the faith, the friendship, and the sweet romance in this one. I loved how the heroine blossomed once she really listened with her heart and saw herself as God sees her. It was a beautiful story.

Serving Up a Sweetheart by Cheryl Wyatt: This story had my favorite beginning out of them all. It was dramatic, but hilarious. I loved the characters from the start and how the sparks flew between them. The only thing that threw me were the long, awkward words or phrases consistently thrown in that interrupted the flow of the story. People don't really think or talk like that, so it just felt odd. Besides that, this was enjoyable from beginning to end and included some great banter and humor. I really liked how the heroine had to work through some issues and learn to forgive and forget to heal her heart and be open to something better.
