A February Bride - by Betsy St. Armant
I should have known that a book about a bride, set in February, would lend itself to be sappier than others. A Valentine's wedding? Couple's showers? The book opening with a bride running away? I found this novella to be the least believable of the Year of Weddings series so far. With the premise already set in the title, the book only has so many directions it could go, and so it's rather predictable from the outset. There were just too many convenient twists in this short story for me to get past to enjoy it. I wish that the aspect of getting past your family's mistakes and generational legacy could have been built up a bit more; I think that could have made for a deeper story, with more room for growth than occurred in this one.
I give this novella 2 stars. It had potential, but fell a little short for me.

I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
