Ten years ago, Hope Prentiss and John Burke didn't go to their high school prom as planned. They eloped. Shortly after exchanging vows, Hope realizes she's made a huge mistake and she and John return home believing that because the paperwork was never filed that they aren't legally married. Both go their separate ways with limited contact over the next ten years. Hope runs a wedding business out of the barn at Harmony Creek. John has become a successful metal artist. When they discover that they are still married, they have a choice to make - make a go of the marriage or seek a divorce. With Hope unsure if she can trust John, especially with her sorta seeing someone else, John vows to show his wife that not only is he worthy of her trust, but that he has never stopped loving her. Will Hope let John through the walls she's built to protect herself from the hurts of her past?
This was a cute novella. I liked both Hope and John. I loved how John was willing to fight for Hope. They way these two interacted with each other was at times funny. I loved Aunt Verna. I thought that she was a sweet elderly lady who was determined to see these two young people she loved recognize their feelings for each other and find happily ever after.
Sure Hope and John had issues to work through. But as they did, I loved how they came to realize exactly what made the other react the way he/she did.
Last year, I read almost all of the novellas in the Year of Weddings. Those stories focused on the brides. This is the second Year of Weddings Series. This time around, the stories are focusing on the women behind the scenes - the caterers, the photographers, make up artists, the event planners, etc. So it should be another fun year of weddings and romance.
I received the Kindle version of this book for free from BookLook Bloggers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of Love Inspired, novellas, weddings, romance.
