I loved the small town setting of this book and loved how Annie and Jessie didn't hit it off right away. Trust was a prominent issue in this book and their relationship didn't start with any trust. What they ended up with was something that was developed over time and made it all the sweeter when trust finally developed between them.
A little more romance and happily ever after played out on the pages of the book at the end of the story would have made this even better but over all this was a swe

This is another cute installment to "A Year of Weddings". Each book focuses on a wedding taking place during a particular month. I received a copy from Netgalley a long time ago and I am just getting to read it.

Annie is a lovable character. She has had a rough life and is finally getting love from friends in her new town. Life is going well until she is pulled over by a handsome police officer. Yes, they meet on different occasions and romance blossoms.

This story holds promise for a happy future

I really liked this novella by Kathryn Springer. The characters were very likable and believable. Since it's a novella, the romance was a little accelerated, but not extremely so. This is my first read by this author, but I certainly will read more by her.

4.5...this was a sweet, fun, clean novella! I like that I can read a novella in a short time, but if I am really enjoying the story, I always want it to last longer!

I liked Annie and Jesse a lot. I thought the author did a good job at developing the characters for such a short story. I thought Jesse's initial distrust of Annie made sense based on what he went through with his stepfather, and I'm glad that he didn't let it get in the way for long.

The only reason I didn't give this five stars was

Sigh. Such a great ending. Loved this book again the second time reading it!

***possible spoilers ahead***
I LOVED the beginning and how Jesse and Annie met (not in a pleasant way -- he pulled her over to give her a warning about her light being out and that the car's muffler was barely hanging on). Needless to say, they don't start off on the right foot and then he learns she's managing his mother's bookstore and his mom didn't even tell him. ;) I could go on and on about that, but I won't.

A small town with a heartwarming feel is exactly what Annie needs and is looking for. As a foster kid, she never felt that feeling of belonging and seems to have found it in Red Leaf, Wisconsin.

It's not in my personality to completely immerse myself in a new town the way Annie does, but she is very sincere and caring and finds herself planting roots with these great people after only a short time. I really loved Annie's creativity and bubbly personality and I could tell that those around her lo

Annie just wants someplace to call home, somewhere to belong. She hopes Red Leaf can be that place. Jesse doesn't trust newcomers, but as he's around Annie more and more, he finds that trusting someone might be worth the risk. The small town setting was charming. I loved the quirky characters and the comfort they had with each other. They were so kind to Annie and accepting of her. Some of the situations Jesse and Annie found themselves in just made me smile. This was a fun, sweet story! The one ...more

Another one in the Year of Brides series.

This one finds Annie coming to Red Leaf and managing a book store for a friend she met on an online book club. It's a fresh start for her after going through years of foster care she is looking to settle somewhere and build a nice, new, happy life.

She's stopped by the local policeman with a broken tail light- and can't believe it when she goes to lunch with her friend and it turns out to be her son.

What a sweet falling-in-love story set in a quaint small town. Annie and Jesse may not have started off on the right foot, but they quickly see the good in each other and with the help of some well-meaning townspeople, find themselves in situations perfect for a little romance. My favorite scenes were hunting for vintage treasures in Ms. Viv's attic and Annie dressing up to read to the children in the bookstore. There is even a mystery towards the end that has to get solved before the wedding if ...more

This novella caught me from page one, paragraph one. I loved Annie and Jessie, each with their own set of prejudices. Like all novellas, it ended too soon but it was perfect for a lazy day reading session before the real world snuck in and I had to get back to work. I had never read anything by Kathryn Springer previously, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if her books make my wishlist to check out very soon.

I enjoyed this novella. The characters were well written and I love the setting in the small town. Plus, the heroine, Annie, is the manager of a small bookstore. (Dream job!) I don't think I've read anything else by this author, but I'll be adding her books to my to-read list.

I had a bit of hope for this one since the main characters didn't actually know each other at first. But, no, we did proceed pretty quickly from the "I don't trust you" phase to the "I love you" phase.

A September Bride is one of Zondervan's Year of Weddings novellas of 2014. All the stories in this series are stand alone books. This one is bright, cheery, filled with good humor and laughs, a sweet romance, small town family dynamics and a happy ending. Conflict is on the light side with just a smidgen of mystery. It's the perfect read for a get-away or a weekend.

Anne Price was looking for a new start in her life. So when she was offered the opportunity to manage a small town bookstore, she

I got approved to review A July Bride, but I already read this one and in the natural order of things, I'm reviewing this one first. Hope none of you are too disappointed by me for not reviewing the books in the correct order.

Ever think that you need a second chance, or even a chance to feel like you belong. Amy Price has that feeling, which was more like a longing to belong. After the life she had, I ca understand why.

A September Bride is another great read from A Year of Wedding series! By far this novella is my favorite out of all that I read of this series.

There is a lot to like about this novella. One of my favorites is the fact that is centered around a small town setting so the vibe was perfect and the story really growed from beginning to end. The second thing I loved is the fact that Jesse, the hero is a deputy. I don't know what it is but there is just something sexy about a man wearing a badge, but

This was one of my favorite in the Zondervan monthly "Bride" series.
1) The MC is a manager at an independent book store. I'm a manager at an independent book store.
2) The male MC's mother is involved in the local historical society. My male MC's mother is also involved in her local historical cosiety.
3) The male MC has incredible blue eyes. Same with my male MC. :D

Review on my blog (to be posted 12/23): http://christianbookshelfreviews.blog...

A September Bride was another Year of Weddings Novella that I loved! The romance was so sweet (I loved the ending!) and the characters were great. I really liked how there was a lot to this story -- it wasn't ALL about the romance, which was nice. Also, the book was really funny at times, so that's another plus. ;)



All in all, I loved this book. I don't know if

I liked this book. Not the best in the series, but not the worst either. A nice solid love story with extremely likeable characters.

My one gripe, as with the previous novella in this series, is the two primary characters seemed to give their hearts to each other without prayerful consideration. There didn't seem to be much courtship, discussion of hopes and plans for the future, or discussion of beliefs--things I consider integral to a godly successful marriage. Since this is a novella with only

Annie wants to start anew in Red Leaf, Jesse has enough experience to be wary of such people. Brought together by the local historical society members to impersonate a bride and a groom during a wedding reeactment at the local museum opening day, they both soon discover there is more to the other than meets the eye.

"A September Bride" is another winning entry in Zondervan's Year of Weddings series, and it features some of the strongest chemistry of any of the novellas so far. Annie and Jesse's attraction is palpable, and they're both very likeable characters. The supporting characters are wonderful, as well, and I hope author Kathryn Springer revisits Red Leaf in the future, as there seem to be a lot more stories there!

I do think "A September Bride" suffers a bit because of its novella length. Annie has a
