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.
This is one A Year of Weddings novella I have been anticipating for months now. Since first reading A Broken Kind of Beautiful earlier this year, I have quickly fallen in love with Katie Ganshert stories – plus, the synopsis of “An October Bride” sounded really cute and sweet. I could not wait to read it, and when I finally got my hands on it, I flew through it. It’s such a delightful, heartwarming story with lovable characters and small-town charm. For any fan of A Year of Weddings or contemporary romance, this novella will surely be an enjoyable read. Now, I’m eager to finish out the year with Beth K. Vogt’s “A November Bride.”
