About The Book: A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. In a moment of total panic, Brendan left Alyssa at the altar. What will it take for him to win her back? When Brendan Meyers became a “runaway groom,” Alyssa Pennington’s heart broke. But she’s returned the unopened gifts, exchanged the dress, and is ready to get on with her life…and forget Brendan. The problem is, Brendan can’t forget. He can’t forget the love he and Alyssa shared and can’t forgive himself for what he put her through on their wedding day. He can never undo his actions, but at least he can try to win Alyssa’s forgiveness. And maybe, someday, another shot at her love. Dalton Landreth was the only person not disappointed about that botched wedding. He had been eyeing Alyssa since high school—with his gorgeous, magnetic blue eyes—and when Brendan ran out the church doors, Dalton heard opportunity knocking. Within months of being jilted at the altar, Alyssa finds herself being simultaneously wooed by the love of her life and the best-looking man she’s ever seen. Not bad for a small-town girl with a broken heart.
About The Author: Award-winning, bestselling author Beth Wiseman is best known for her Amish novels, but her most recent novels, Need You Now and The House that Love Built, are contemporaries set in small Texas towns. Both have received glowing reviews. Beth's highly-anticipated novel, The Promise, is inspired by a true story.
My Thoughts About The Book: I was so excited to have a chance to review this book. I am a huge Beth Wiseman fan and thought this would be a great read. The opposite was true and I found this book not only to be my least favorite Beth Wiseman book, but also my least favorite of the "A Year of Weddings" books as well. I am glad it only took me a few hours to read this book. Wiseman is usually a master in character development and I always leave feeling as if I have known the characters my whole life. These characters were very thin. Not one of my favorites at all, but at least it was a quick read and can be read in one sitting.
