Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge 2014: February & March part 2

This is part 2 of 3.

About the Book

A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. In A January Bride by Deborah Raney, what will happen when novelist Madeleine Houser’s “pen pal” friendship with a lonely widower takes an unexpected turn? 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.

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

***I received this book from Netgalley without compensation for an honest review.***

This is the second novella in the A Year of Weddings series and I have to say that I really enjoyed this classy and sweet romance.

I found the main character, Maddie, to be very likeable and relateable (perhaps because she is an author). Art, the main male lead, was also well-written a character that you could easily understand. Watching the two of them and their relationship grow was fun and, at times, heart-tugging.

The secondary character of Ginny was enjoyable as well as she did her part to help the two lonely and scared couple find their footing.

This story does contain Christian and religious moments so, if you're not a fan of this style of writing, you might want to steer clear.

I would recommend this novel to others and I will continue to read the other novels in this series.
