Mini Review: A September Bride by Kathryn Springer

Annie Price has always wanted a home and a family. Annie grew up in the foster care system and all she truly wants is to belong somewhere. When a woman that Annie meets in an online book group wants to retire and hand Annie the keys to her bookstore, Annie packs up her bags and jumps on the opportunity. The towns people of Red Leaf, Wisconsin welcomes Annie with opening arms but the bookstore owner's son Jesse Kent is a little skeptical about this situation. All Jesse wants to know is what are Annie's real motives and what does she want with his mother's bookstore. When Jesse and Annie get thrown together for a wedding reenactment, Jesse takes this as an opportunity to try to uncover Annie's secrets. Could this wedding turn into something real?

I have to say this is one of the more entertaining novels that I have read for the year of weddings. It was a lot of fun discovering how Annie and Jesse interact with each other. The two of them not to get along at all int he beginning to having to work together for a wedding reenactment is quite hilarious. I do think this novella was wrapped up pretty quickly though so it felt a little rushed towards the end.
