An October Bride

About The Book:  She wants to make her father's dream come true. She doesn't realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.  Emma Tate isn't a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they're getting married-so Emma's dying father can walk her down the aisle.
While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications-the biggest being their true feelings for each other.In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father's dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future.
About the Author:  Katie Ganshert graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison with a degree in education, and worked as a fifth grade teacher for several years before staying home to write full-time. She was born and raised in the Midwest, where she lives with her husband, their young son, and their goofy black lab, Bubba. When she's not busy writing or playing or reading or snuggling, she is obsessing over the paperwork and the waiting that comes with adoption. Visit her website at
My Thoughts On The Book:  I have read  most of the Year of Weddings series so far and I have to say this one was one of my most favorites.  I laughed out loud, could not put it down, felt as if I was right there in each scene.  The only problem I had with this book is that I did not want it to end on page 100.  I wanted this to be a full length book...not just a novella.  I cannot wait to read more by Katie Ganshert.  She is excellent at character development and what a storyteller!  Loved it!
