She wants to make her father’s dream come true. She doesn’t realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.
Emma Tate isn’t a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they’re getting married—so Emma’s dying father can walk her down the aisle.
While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications—the biggest being their true feelings for each other.
In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father’s dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future.




Super cute!  I adored this story.  Several times while reading I laughed out loud. An October Bride is well written with lovable characters and a cute story-line.  I read this in one sitting. I didn’t even start until way past my bedtime but there was no way I was going to quit until I finished this sweet story.  I honestly hadn’t planned to read this yet.  I was just pulling it up on my Kindle so it would be the next book I started. As soon as I read the first page and was hooked.

I only wish this had been longer as this easily could have been turned into a full length novel which would have likely kept me up until the wee  hours of the morning finishing it so I guess it was a good thing it was less than 100 pages.

I will definitely be looking for other books by this fabulous author!
