I really enjoyed this book a lot. I don't read too many holiday themed books but I do try to read at least one or two every year in a quest to get myself in the holiday spirit. I really liked the last book from this series, I'll Be Home for Christmas, so I was eager to pick up the newest one in the series. This book is actually the seventh in the Twilight, Texas series but it reads perfectly fine as a stand alone. This was the kind of book th

I haven't read this author before. I wanted to read a few Christmas themed novels and this was one of them. Although it is part of the series it didn't really seem to matter. The author gives you reflections of the past. It was very heartwarming and funny. It did have some sex scenes but not over the top. I enjoyed this read!

Oh my stars this was excellent! If you read I'll be Home for Christmas, you are aware of the character in this story. Katie and Gabi did a house swap for the weeks leading up to Christmas. The other book told Gabi's side. A Wedding for Christmas focuses on the other story, Katie. She goes off to LA where a chance encounter with an old friend/flame has her acting a big out of character and hooking up with him. She's tired of being the girl in mourning and is trying to move on with her life. When ...more

Who knew that the nickname "Miss Priss" could actually be a sweet nickname. I have read many stories of crushes and the brother's best friend and sister hook up but thus far for 2016, I have to say that this was one of my favorite hook ups. Ryder and Katie made such a great couple together. For example, Katie had Ryder falling all over her on their first encounter as adults. Ok, so maybe it was due to the fact that Ryder thought Katie was a stalker (minor detail). Yet, what I enjoyed the most wa ...more

What a sweet love story! These characters fell in love as teens, did not see each other for years, and finally get to fulfill their love when they meet again! I am a sucker for these stories! I love all of the characters and their interaction with each other through the years. I also love Twilight, Texas! I think I'd like to visit this fictional town.

I'm not one for Christmas books, but this one a was cute brothers best friend romance.

Katie and Ryder have known each other as kids, the reconnect and sparks fly. I enjoyed reading this and recommend it.

If you are looking for a comfort read Lori Wilde is your author. She writes such wonderful complex characters in towns you want to visit.

I always feel happy reading one of her stories. What's better then reading a favorite author? Reading a favorite author with a Christmas story!!!

I really love a good holiday story and A Wedding For Christmas is just that! I loved going back to visit everyone in Twilight Texas.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well at least in Twilight, Texas it is. In the previous book, I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Katie Cheek and Gabi Preston swap houses for the holidays and I’m so glad Lori Wilde is giving her readers the other side of the swap in A Wedding for Christmas. I may have only started this series with the pervious story but The Twilight, Texas series is becoming one of my favo

Last year around this time I read I’ll Be Home for Christmas, and it was the first time I had read this series. In that book there was a house swap for the holiday season. A city girl that wanted to go to a small town and enjoy the magic of Christmas there, and she swapped houses with a small town girl tired of her small town and wanting to see the big city lights. This is the other side of that swap. The small town girl going to the big city for the holidays, away from her family and

Katie has crushed on Ryder since she was 8 or so- all coming to a head when at age 15 she impulsively kisses his 18 year old self and he immediately joins the military and leaves tiny Twilight, Texas.
Nothing could shock her more when she literally runs into him in LA. A steamy night with Ryder and she is back to Twilight, rebuilding her life and trying (and failing) to forget how much she likes him.
All this effort is dashed when he comes home to help his father with the farm and Katie's brother

5 Stars to A Wedding For Christmas (Twilight Texas #7) by Lori Wilde.

The Twilight Texas Series by Lori Wilde is one of my all time favorites. What make the series even better is when Christmas is added. Christmas in Twilight is a magical time of year. While I have read all the books in this series in order, you can definitely read this one as a standalone. But if you have time, I recommend you add the whole series to your TBRs. Lori's writing style is smooth and each page flows into the next wit

4.5 Star review of A Wedding For Christmas (Twilight, Texas #7) by Lori Wilde
My favourite holiday of the year is Christmas; and I love stories about Christmas, throw in a small town and a love that is meant to be and you have A Wedding for Christmas.
Lori Wilde is a new author to me, that’s right I haven’t read the other books in this series, although having said that although I think it would be good to have done so, I was able to read and follow this book without difficulty or confusion.

At the tender age of 18, Ryder Southerland got out of Twilight Texas as soon as he could. Years later, after a stint in the military and now working as a bodyguard for the stars, he thought he knocked the dust from his boots forever. Ryder quickly realizes he hadn’t when Katie Cheek comes back into his life. Katie Check has always had a crush on her big brother’s best friend. When he left town she thought she would never see him again. Low and behold during a holiday house swap she gets tackled ...more

Fantastic story. At the beginning of the book, Katie is in LA, having swapped houses for the holidays with Gabi (I'll Be Home forChristmas). While there, she uses Gabi's invitation to a Hollywood party, pushing the envelope of her comfort zone. While there, she is mistaken for a stalker by a bodyguard, who just happens to be her brother's best friend (and her old crush) Ryder. Sparks fly, and after a hot night together, Katie is gone.

Ryder was stunned to see Katie, especially looking as beautifu

Some of you may know that Christmas books are my FAVORITE books to read. There is just something about all that holly jolly goodness in Christmas books that I just LOVE. I also adore all Lori Wilde's books. So a Christmas book by Lori Wilde, A Wedding for Christmas, went straight to the top of my to be read pile.

A Wedding for Christmas is a A Twilight Texas book that includes updates on a lot of my friends in Twilight. Gabi and Joe (that we watched fall in love in last Christmas) are getting ma

Put Lori Wilde , Twilight, TX and Christmas in a novel, and what do you get ??!? Another winner. I just love Ms Wilde’s writing since she never disappoints us. If you are new to Twilight , TX you will fall in love with the town and it’s inhabitants. If you are coming back for a visit, be ready to enjoy your favorite place during the holidays.
Yes it’s a story about Ryder, currently a bodyguard, and also best friend to Katie’s brother. And Katie, now a professional organizer, who at one point had

What would Christmas be like without a new Twilight, TX, book from Lori Wilde? I love this series so much, and this one did not disappoint. I laughed and cried and swooned for Ryder and Katie. No one writes a heartfelt Christmas romance like Lori! <3

This was just ok - not really memorable. The main character was a bit of a contradiction; very organised, loves order, apparently set in her convictions. And yet she gives into temptation (after resolving to stay her ground) every time she's within distance of the love interest.

He was better but the relationship just bugged me. The secondary characters were great but they just couldn't carry the story.

Lisa Zimmerman on audio was excellent; I think she's the reason I didn't DNF this one. A good

Lori Wilde has a delightful series, Twilight Texas, and this is book 7. It's great to keep up with the residents and new comers. Twilight celebrates the holiday for weeks and if a couple is thinking wedding, it's around Christmas. Katie's brother Joe is getting married and his best friend is coming back after 13 years to be his best man. A year ago Katie had a fling with Ryder and now he's coming home. A great love story, a perfect setting and lots of holiday action keep this story moving. An en ...more

Loved Katie and Ryder! He is a bodyguard in L.A. She is running away from her life in Twilight for a fling in L.A. She is tired of being the good girl. Ryder is from Twilight too. They both cared about each other when they were young and now they get their second chance. Katie ' s best friend Gabi and her brother, Joe, are getting married at Christmas. Can Ryder make peace with his Dad and Twilight? Will Katie and Ryder find their own happily ever after?

Katie and Ryder found love when they least expect it. Katie had a crush on him but she was young and now she found out that something are worth waiting for..... Believe in love, fate, and happily ever after..

Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.

She sold her first book in 1994 to Silhouette Romance but later dis
