Can she forgive the man who left her at the altar?
Alyssa Pennington dated Brendan Myers for three years before she accepted his proposal. For almost a year, Alyssa's friends and family helped her plan a lovely wedding to take place in the church she'd grown up in. It was the happiest day of her life when she walked down the aisle to be united with the man of her dreams. But when Brendan left her at the altar, Alyssa was consumed by humiliation, embarrassment, and a broken heart that wouldn't allow her to trust anyone. Especially Brendan.
Brendan Myers knows he will spend the rest of his life regretting what he did to Alyssa, the only woman he's ever loved. Without her, his life is empty. In one fateful moment, he'd panicked, destroyed their future, and ruined everything. Now he plans to win her back.
But winning back his bride might prove much more difficult than he can imagine. And even if he does get her to the altar again, will she think turnabout is fair play?
Beth Wiseman’s addition to A Year of Weddings, “A July Bride,” fits wonderfully into the romantic collection. Distinguishing her novella from the others, Wiseman throws her characters into an unexpected love triangle, which kept me on edge while reading, wondering who exactly would end up at the wedding altar. I hoped for Alyssa to make certain choices, but a few twists kept the plot interesting and a bit unpredictable. “A July Bride” is a sweet, heartwarming story, and I recommend it along with all the other novellas in the collection. I look forward to reading more from both Beth Wiseman and A Year of Weddings in the near future.
