A January Bride by Deborah Raney. Zondervan, 2013. 120p. ebook (9780310337706) Series: A Year of Weddings, #2
The second book in this fun series has quite a unique twist.
Who can work in a house that's overrun by contractors and carpenters? Not Madeleine Houser, a successful novelist who gladly accepts the help of her octogenarian friend, Ginny, to arrange for a temporary office in the charming bed and breakfast owned by Ginny's friend, Arthur. Maddie’s never met the innkeeper––but a friendship grows between them as Maddie and Arthur leave messages for each other each day. To Maddie’s alternate delight and chagrin, she seems to be falling for the inn’s owner––a man who's likely many years her senior––and who she’s never even met.
I really enjoyed reading a story about a historical fiction writer trying to write a book. The setting was cozy. The misunderstandings are funny and natural, quite the comedy of errors. Alex the cat is cool. The matchmaking neighbor a lot of fun. And the way the romance develops is different and interesting. It’s a squeaky clean romance with two or three kisses.
