A November Bride by Beth K. Vogt

Goodreads | Amazon
Sadie McAllister is fastidious to a fault - but that serves her well as a personal chef to her clients in Denver. But her earliest attempt at managing romance was a bust when Erik Davis declined her invitation to the school's eighth grade Sadie Hawkins Dance.

Having celebrated the big 3-0 by ending a relationship, Sadie is tired of romantic relationships-by-text. The only man she knows willing to put down his iPhone and have face-to-face conversations with her is Erik. It's time to put a 21st-century twist on the Sadie Hawkins' tradition of a woman going after her man. He may not be the hero of her romantic dreams, but she can propose to Erik and achieve some sort of happily ever after with her best friend.

Erik is good at two things: his freelance job and maintaining casual, no-one-gets-hurt relationships with women. What is Sadie thinking, proposing to him? This is marriage - not a middle school dance. Erik decides to show Sadie what romance looks like when the man takes the lead. And while he's at it, he'll prove just how wrong they are for each other. But when he realizes he's fallen for her, can Erik convince Sadie his just-for-fun dates were the prelude to "'til death do us part"?

As a fan of Zondervan’s A Year of Weddings from the start, I was delighted to read Beth K. Vogt’s cute contribution, “A November Bride.” Her characters, Sadie and Erik, have been best friends since middle school, but do not realize their romantic potential until they reach 30. As they explore the potential of their budding relationship, it was great to see them working to overcome their fears and insecurities. A sweet and fun romance, “A November Bride” adds a great story to this first novella collections and provides a wonderful conclusion. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more from Vogt in the future.
