Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is such a sweet story!January 7, 2015Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed reading An October Bride. It is told in first person, which worked very well for this story. Everything the reader experiences is from Emma Tates perspective.
Emmas life is about to change in a big way. Her father is dying and she is grasping for a way to make things right. She knows that her father hopes to someday walk her down the aisle at her wedding, but she isnt currently engaged to anyone. When her friend, Jake, suggests that he could be her groom and that they could fulfill the wish, Emma jumps on board with the idea. But, things in life are rarely this simple.
There are supportive family members, an excited town, a best friend who questions Emmas sanity, a handsome and kind groom, and the return of feelings for Jake that Emma thought she had squelched long ago. How can Emma go through with this wedding, when it is just going to be for show? Is there a chance that Jake could ever feel more for her than simple friendship? And what about Emmas father? Can anything make that right?
This novella is a sweet, touching tribute to the importance of family and of trusting in God, whether we like His answer to our prayers or not. An October Bride is book 11 in the A Year of Weddings novella series.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Katie has done it again!December 11, 2014MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I. Loved. This. Story.
This is one of the best stories I have read in this series. I already love Katies writing from reading her novels so I was curious to see how she would handle a novella.
Lets just say I was crying at the end.
I adored both Emma and Jake. They made a great couple before either of them even realized they did.
Katie did a wonderful job building doubt into the book, which is what will keep you reading, wondering how they can work this out and when they will admit their true feeling to each other.
I read this book so fast, in less than two hours, so this a quick read that I highly recommend.
An e-copy of this book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5FantasticNovember 24, 2014KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Kudos to the author for engaging my emotions in such a short word count. This novella reads with all the satisfaction found in a novel length story. Told in first person point of view, it's all about Emma. We watch events unfold through her eyes only and that creates a lovely intimate reading experience. An October Bride is a bittersweet love story packed with valuable life lessons and the hope that comes from truly believing. Delectable.
i blog 4 books5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!November 23, 2014i blog 4 booksKatie Ganshert has quickly risen to "favorite author" status, and An October Bride is another wonderful story by this talented author. She somehow manages to tell a very full and complete story in a limited number of pages and does it very well. Jake and Emma's story is sweet and emotional from the very start. As Emma is dealing with her father's declining health, Jake is the perfect friend and support she needs. Of course, things don't go smoothly the entire time, so there are a few dips and turns that are sure to keep you flipping pages (or swiping across your e-reader screen!). Given how much I loved the story, I was sad to see it end and would love to read more about these characters! I highly recommend this wonderful romance ... one of my favorites in the series!! [5 stars]
I received a free copy of this book from Zondervan's BookLook Bloggers program in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I love it. And it fits the book perfectly.
Katie Ganshert has quickly become one of my "must watch" authors so I was thrilled when I saw that she was writing for the Brides series!
Once again, she did a wonderful job creating a story that readers are going to just love. This is a perfect book for a cuddled up winter day with some coffee or hot tea!
Emma and Jake are so cute together and it is a blast to read their story and fall in love with them as they fall in love with each other.
