A May Bride

About The Book:  She thinks she has prepared for her wedding all her life . . . but it seems she may have forgotten the most important part.  Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life-a wedding just like the one her younger sister is planning back home. 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.  At a wedding at her church, Ellie bumps into a man who's one of the guests. 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 Gray.  When Ellie risks her own future for her sister's sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle to Ellie's family?  Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they've begun come crashing down?

About The Author:  Although she has lived more than half my life in other states, she is still a Californian at heart. She loves vintage bungalows, twisted oaks on rolling hills, and the rocky beaches of the Central Coast. A few blocks away from her childhood home stood a Lutheran church where she came to faith, first through Sunday School teachers whose kindness drew her to the kindness of God, and then through confirmation classes. The Bible verses that had been drilled into her head came to life in her heart.  After moving away from home as a teenager, she worked at a variety of jobs, from candle-maker in a tourist town to administrative assistant at a Christian college. She married a wonderful man from Michigan, and they lived north of Detroit for seventeen years. That's where they started homeschooling their three children, an endeavor that they finished in Georgia when their youngest graduated from high school in 2009.  Moseley and her husband live near Atlanta, close to the foothills of the Southern Appalachians. His motorcycle often carries them to the mountains of Georgia, Tennessee, or the Carolinas. Sitting on the back of the bike,she can pray, enjoy the beautiful views, and plot new stories. Fiction makes her world go 'round, whether she is writing it or reading it.

My Thoughts On The Book:  This is another in the series "A Year of Weddings"  published by Zondervan - Fiction. Each of these novellas focuses on a wedding and the trials and tribulations leading up to the event. This is a sweet story that is for your pure reading enjoyment.   The story begins with a renegade and this was something that was new to me.
During the renegade wedding Ellie meets Gray and the romance begins. Of all the Year of Weddings books this was not really one of my favorites.  Even with that it was still a great way to spend a few hours.  I cannot wait for the next in the series. 

Disclaimer: This book was given to me to review as part of HarperCollins Publishing Company's BookLook Blogging Program in exchange for an honest review.  The thoughts are entirely my own.  Thank you, NetGalley and Zondervan, for the opportunity to read A May Wedding
