If you like wintry weddings… if you like stories that revolve around the people who make weddings possible … if you like sweet and sometimes sassy romance, A Season to Wed is a great novella collection for you! All three authors – Cindy Kirk, Rachel Hauck, and Cheryl Wyatt – vividly bring their characters and settings to life, and each story points unequivocally to the Author who IS the very definition of Love. A perfect way to spend a chilly Spring evening!

Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk - In my opinion, there are so many ways this novella could have gone and would have been better if the story had been done differently. The premise of the story - two kids go to get married right out of high school but she has doubts and backs out before they even leave the building but not before they've gone through the ceremony and signed the paper. Now, 10 years later, they find out that they are still legally married.

Hope and John have had limited con

Love at Mistletoe Inn
In this novella a wonderful, single, elderly woman named Verna has in her heart adopted two people, Hope and John. Verna is my favorite character because of her love, no nonsense yet gentle approach and giving heart. In the tale two, young, impulsive teenagers make an adult decision to marry in a different state now meet

Three sweet stories of those who help create perfect weddings finding love of their own.

'Love at Mistletoe Inn' begins with an intriguing premise: a young couple who thought they had called off their wedding learn that they were indeed legally married. This sets up all kinds of possibilities!

Unfortunately, I found these characters hard to relate to, and their actions and decisions awkward. It was a cute story that will likely appeal more to some, but it was my least favorite of the set.

Overall, this collection was all right. I really liked the first story, Love at Mistletoe Inn . That was a cute story, but I was surprised that it took the main characters so long to figure out what was going on. This story got 4 stars. I didn't like the second story, A Brush with Love . This story got 2 stars. The only thing I liked about this story was the ending. The last story, Serving Up a Sweetheart , was okay. This story got 3 stars. The main character, Meadow, was, at times, too annoying ...more

Three VERY good, sweet romantic stories full of faith, love, and forgiveness. Make sure to have tissues handy. You will need them.
First, there is the wedding that wasn't legal, or was it? Ten years later, Hope and John find out the truth of their young romance. A beautiful story with lots of heart.
Next, there is the story of Ginger. She is scarred inside and out by a fire at age twelve. She overcomes it to become a successful "beauty maker" and salon owner when her high-school crush comes back

I received this book from a contest at Goodreads. I can definitely recommend all three stories in this book. They are all good, clean stories with the theme of forgiveness in all of them.

Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk has Hope Prentiss discovering her wedding of 10 years ago is valid. Then the "groom", John Burke, returns to town, and Cindy helps him plan a Christmas wedding. While they are working together, she begins to wonder if their marriage should be dissolved.

I like to indulge in a few cheesy romances around Christmastime, and I grabbed this on sale. Sadly, it was quite lousy and barely worth skimming through. Warning: mild spoilers ahead

The first story was the worst: the set-up was just implausible, and then the weird consummation? (We don't want to be married and haven't seen one another in years, but let's fall into bed now so that we can't simply have the marriage annulled!) And a charming family member is actually plotting a whole wedding for yo

Scars always show the owner

I liked this story. It was a self reflection. There was a lot more to it than just on old passion coming back to life. “A Brush With Love” was a story about a lady named Ginger, and she had a visitor come to her beauty shop for a haircut. He was the first love of her life. It opened up many doors she thought she had closed and barred.
This was a very clean story for older teens onward..

I won this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Somehow I missed the part about these being Christian Fiction when I entered the giveaway. I don't usually like Christian Fiction because I find it a bit preachy. I read all of Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk and actually enjoyed it, but I couldn't get into the other two Stories.

4/5 Love at Mistletoe Inn

Hope has sworn off love ever since her quick marriage that ended almost as soon as it happened or so she thought. While she is with her friend at a Boise Bridal Extravaganza, she finds out that even though her marriage was never recorded she still could be married.
Her ex, John, left town after their “failed” marriage and graduation but has decided to return and put down roots.

I love books like this where you get the chance to read different authors.The book was a treat to read and I found each story to be very well written.

In Love At Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk we are introduced to Hope and John. They were young and so in love, How many remember your real first love? You didn't think you could live without. It didn't seem to bother Hope and John that they were young as they said I do that day. After all the papers were never sent off to be legalized. so they walked a

This is a wonderful collection of three novellas by three very talented authors. These stories give you a look at weddings from different perspectives. When I think of a wedding it's usually just about the ceremony, but as we all know it's more involved than that. We will meet a young woman who helps run a successful wedding/reception venue, a stylist, and lastly a caterer. These stories bring humor, love and romance, but they also bring a wonderful message that stayed with me even after I close ...more

Two of the authors in the books were new to me, Cheryl Wyatt and Cindy Kirk. I had already read a book by Rachel before and really enjoyed it, so I was very excited to be reading this book. I have grown to love novellas because I can usually finish each story in a days time. They are engaging and yet pretty straight to the point, not alot of unnecessary detail, and just enough to keep you interested in what is happening. I loved each story. I don't even know if I really have a favorite. They wer ...more

Do you like Hallmark TV movies or books about weddings? I do. There's just something about wedding stories that brings out the sweetness of love. With A Season to Wed, it's not only about boy meets girl and they get married in the winter and live happily ever after. All three stories touched on realistic struggles.

In Love at Mistletoe Inn, second chances and having faith for God and in each other brings about understanding between Hope and John. Verna, both of their's adoptive mother's gentle m

A Season to Wed contains three sweet winter love stories: Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk, A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck, and Serving Up a Sweetheart by Cheryl Wyatt. Each of the stories is about recovery, redemption, and romance. The female main characters are women who all play significant parts in weddings, but always from the outside, never their own. I love reading romance collections!

A Season to Wed is a collection of three short stories by authors Cindy Kirk, Rachel Hauck and Cheryl Wyatt.

After a slightly confusing introduction to the story and after a few pages of reading, I grasped the concept that and cute story idea of two young people, Hope and John, falling in love and having a shotgun wedding. But after being apart for ten years and believing that their marriage was not valid, when in reality it was, this changes everything.

"A Season To Wed" is a collection of three winter love stories and they are all wonderful. They will cause your heart to want to fall in love again.
"Love at Mistletoe Inn" by Cindy Kirk is the first story in the book and though I like the story, the book wasn't my idea of a Christian story, yes it was clean, I thought some parts might be considered a little much for a Christian romance. Yes, I would recommend this book and say it is a clean read but the other two stories are definitely Christia

*I received a copy to review through SLB Tours in exchange for an honest review*

I always enjoy a cute anthology and this collection is sweet. Each story has a woman who was shunned for one reason or another in high school. Each one grows up into a strong, successful woman, but they each still feels scars from the past and must overcome those hurts and move on.

Love at Mistletoe Inn tells the story of a young couple who eloped on a whim and almost immediately regretted it. Ten years later, they fi

“A Season to Wed” is a collection of three romantic novellas with winter settings. Each novella was penned by a different author and the plots are not related. However each book has similarities. In each story, the heroine encounters a man who meant something to her in the past but for one reason or another, their relationship ended. Each of these couples find themselves with a second chance at love. I thoroughly enjoyed each of the three stories. If romance is your genre, you won’t want to miss ...more
