Series: A Year of Wedding Novellas (Stands Alone)
Released: December 24, 2013
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.
This is the second novella in this Inspirational Christian fiction series I have read. Each book is a stand alone written by a different author.
Maddie & Arthur’s relationship unfolded in a unique way. Communicating solely through short notes, they learn to love each other while brighten each other’s day. It’s a safe relationship for both of them since their ages are so far apart as both think the other is elderly.
While it is predictable, January Bride is a sweet story that I enjoyed reading and would recommend to anyone who enjoys clean Christian romance.
Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book
