Review ~ A May Bride by Meg Moseley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A May Bride is #6 in “A Year of Weddings” series.
I have to say, I’m truly enjoying all of these short stories about true love and weddings. They are easy to read and slightly addicting.
This one has the meddling mother of the bride. The mother is bitter and scarred from her shot gun marriage and does not want her daughters to fall into the trap of good looking, fast talking men.
This short journey takes us through the work the daughters do to cut the cord and go for what they want.
Of course, each of these stories end in a wedding and they are always very sweet.
She’s prepared for her wedding all her life … but she forgot a few things.
Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, often de-stresses from city life by tending the flower beds of a church near her apartment. She has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life, a wedding like the one her younger sister is planning back in their hometown. Their single mom will pay for Alexa’s wedding, but Ellie started her own wedding fund years ago. She only needs to find a groom.
She bumps into a man who’s a guest at a wedding on the church grounds. She’s noticed him around the neighborhood, but today he introduces himself as Gray Whitby. They embark on a whirlwind romance, but her mother doesn’t trust freewheeling men like him. Standing up to Mom leads Ellie to stick up for Alexa too. When Ellie risks her own plans for her sister’s sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle?
Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they’ve begun come crashing down?
