Book Review: A July Bride by Beth Wiseman

A July Bride
By Beth Wiseman
Rating: 3/5
A Year of Weddings Series
Zondervan – Fiction/Romance

Alyssa Pennington was ready for her life to change forever — she was marrying the man of her dreams, Brendan Meyers. This would be the perfect day, but when Brendan leaves her at the altar, everything falls apart.

After returning every wedding gift and trying to figure out what happened to make Brendan bolt, Alyssa is done with their relationship. However, it is difficult since Brendan won’t stop sending flowers and gifts to woo her back. She doesn’t trust her “runaway groom” to be what she needs in a life partner. She can’t forgive what he did to her on their wedding day.

When Alyssa starts dating another guy, will Brendan bow out gracefully? Or will he continue to pursue his soulmate? Can Alyssa learn to forgive and trust her instincts? Will there be a happily ever after?

I enjoyed this novella from Beth Wiseman; however, I did not feel it was developed as much as it should have. Though the story was character driven, I never really liked or grew attached to the main characters. The book is a great fun and a light read but it still felt lacking in something.

I would still recommend the story for anyone who needs a fun and light read (especially on an airplane).

I received this book for free from NetGalley but was not required to give a positive review.
