Steve broke her heart years ago, and she’s still sorting through her feelings for him. Will Wynne go through with her televised wedding and be the perfect June bride the network is looking for? A July Bride by Beth Wiseman It was the happiest day of her life when Alyssa Pennington walked down the aisle to be united with the man of her dreams. But when Brendan left her at the altar, Alyssa was consumed by humiliation, embarrassment, and a broken heart that wouldn’t allow her to trust anyone. Brendan Myers knows he will spend the rest of his life regretting what he did to Alyssa, the only woman he’s ever loved. Now he plans to win her back. But winning back his bride might prove much more difficult than he can imagine. An August Bride by Debra Clopton After a cowboy broke her heart, Kelsey Wilcox traded in her boots for flip-flops and a bistro on the beautiful sandy beach of Corpus Christi. Two years later, still not believing in happy endings, she is about to endure a weekend of torture at her cousin's beach wedding. Brent Corbin has had his share of bad luck with women and isn't looking for love or looking forward to the weekend of wedding festivities as a groomsman for his friend, but his attention is instantly captured by Kelsey. Thrown together through the weekend and with the meddlesome encouragement from some matchmakers, Brent is determined to pursue Kelsey and change her mind about cowboys.

Book Takeaway:

The ‘Take Away’ in this story is that everyone deserves a second chance. :)

Why the author wrote this book:

Who doesn’t love a wedding? And July Bride is set in La Grange, Texas — which earned a place on the map when ZZ Top named a song after the small Texas town, and La Grange is home to the former Chicken Ranch—making it a fun place to write about. It’s filled with small town antics, cowboys, a war reenactment, and a runaway groom. When Brendan panics and leaves Alyssa at the alter, Alyssa is humiliated and vows never to trust Brendan again. But Brendan is determined to win Alyssa back, and he’ll stop at nothing to prove how much he loves her. Love is never easy, and relationships often take turns that we can’t foresee. I mostly wrote this story because I wanted to tell a fun tale set in a place near where I live. And I loved coming up with ways for Brendan to prove himself to Alyssa again, no matter how over the top his tactics are.
