In A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant, history repeats itself when this bride runs out of the church on her wedding day---in the same dress that had been passed down for generations and worn by her mom, grandma and great-grandmother who also ran out of their weddings. The heroine struggles to break destructive cycles of the past. Can this bride shuck expectation and discover who SHE is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she finally walks down the aisle, what dress will she be wearing? Readers will enjoy this novel of redemption centered on a winter wedding.

Out of the three books I have read so far, this is the best one. I loved this story. I loved that the couple had a history so it wasn't insta~love and that it had so much love flowing through the pages.  The Christianity wasn't overt and loud, but it was there in the Bible quotes, the deeply held beliefs and thoughts of so many of the characters especially the main characters.

Allie was a great character to read, she had so much hope, but was so deeply afraid of hoping and leaving a greater legacy of pain than her family did. I totally could relate to not wanting to repeat family mistakes, but I also understand that it's also your choices, something that Allie hadn't learnt yet.

The author wove so much emotion into the story, that even after my reading sprint was supposed to be over I couldn't give up reading until I was totally done with the story.  I loved reading Marcus's thoughts as well and having him struggle with hoping and not wanting to be the one left with a broken heart again but still being willing to believe.

It's a cute love story about redemption and the power of love. And let's face it, the cover is too adorable!!  Make sure to RSVP to the other weddings happening this year. Click on the link below.
It's a beautiful and romantic read. It's fast and a good little pick me up during the season of love.
Happy Reading & Romancing
