Ellie has prepared for her wedding all her life . . . but she has forgotten the most important part.
Ellie Martin, a country girl living in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life—a wedding just like the one her younger sister is planning back home. Even though Ellie is realizing her dreams in the big city as an up-and-coming real-estate agent, she’s missing a key ingredient to her plans for the future: a groom.
Then Ellie meets Gray Whitby—at a wedding of all places. Gray is handsome and fun, and he sweeps her away in a whirlwind romance. In a matter of months, Ellie knows Gray is "the one," but her mother isn't so sure, judging Gray to be the freewheeling type, like Ellie's runaway father.
When Ellie jeopardizes her own future for the sake of her sister, Gray feels like he'll always be second to Ellie's family. Can Ellie and Gray find their own way together amidst the demands and perceptions of others or will their romance end before it has truly begun?
“I get to be involved with eleven other wonderful writers, some whom I’ve known for years and some I’m getting to know now. What a blessing. And who doesn’t love a good wedding story? This has been a fun challenge and a true joy.” —Lenora Worth, author of An April Bride
So far “A May Bride” by Meg Moseley has been my favorite. I really loved Ellie Martin’s story. I feel like I could relate to her a lot. Ellie was the perfect character for this story because I felt like she is such a great character to relate too. I feel for her as soon as I start getting to know her. Her mom has looks at getting married in a bad light so when Ellie’s sister makes some wrong choices, her mom decides that she is no longer going to pay for a wedding. Ellie has to learn to be free to love whom she wants instead of just being afraid about what her mother may think.
I really liked this novella because Ellie has to learn to make decisions for herself and do what she wants. I like that Ellie meets a guy that treats her nice and wants to take care of her. I think the writing in this novel is great. Moseley does a great job drawing the reader into the story. I think Moseley brings amazing characters to the readers. Ellie is sweet and easy to love. Gray is pretty charming. The only thing about Gray is that at times he can be a bit too pushy and that I didn’t like. All in all I really liked this novella and thought it was a great quick read.
