Review ~ A December Bride by Denise Hunter

A December Bride (A Year of Weddings, #1)A December Bride by Denise Hunter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very cute story and a quick read. What do you do when you must go to your ex-fiancee’s wedding to your cousin (the girl that stole him from you)? Do you go with the guy that threw them together? The one that you once had a crush on and then blamed for the loss of your fiancee?

Well, all this happens to Layla and she finds herself in a sticky predicament. While in this strange situation, she makes the best of it and comes out winning in the end.

The story is light and angst free. Fun and sweet.

I recommend it to anyone that likes friends to lovers, happy endings, quick weddings, and great love stories.


What started as a whim turned into an accidental – and very public – engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the facade in Chapel Springs this holiday season – for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?

Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy, the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiance would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency, a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client. For Layla, it’s the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it’s his last chance to win her heart.
