A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
Can a decades-long friendship marred by two romantic missteps ever lead to happily ever after?
Sadie McAllisters clients know how lucky they are to have her: an ultra-fastidious personal chef who leaves behind a spotless kitchen and a weeks worth of mouth-watering meals.
Erik Davis, her best friend since middle school, is content to enjoy Sadies culinary skills too while maintaining their "friends only" status. Most of his energy is focused on his just-launched freelance business and casual dates that never come close to a commitment.
But when Sadie is offered a once-in-a-lifetime cooking job across country, Erik realizes maybe hes taken his best friend for granted. Even more, hes about to lose his only chance for lasting love.
How can Erik convince Sadie that the well-known adage "Marry your best friend" just might apply to them? With Gods help, can they both move past their assumptions about each other and their future? Should Sadie and Erik risk taking their relationship to the romantic point of no return? If they do, their decades-long friendship is as a good as done . . . unless it ends at the altar.

Review: I did not start out liking this book. I continued on thinking I will see where it goes and than like a bolt of lightning it did not go the way I thought it would. It has a solid Christian message of forgiveness that is not preachy and great life to the story overall. For a novella it packs a lot! I really found this to be a sparkling end to the series. I am going to say the last ones were the best. The thing that turned me off in the beginning was when Sadie asks Erik to marry her. I am not that kind of person. I do not like bossy woman characters and that seemed the way this story was going, when suddenly that was a minor history portion and the characters had depth and were broken people in a fallen world.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Fiction for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Right or NotAugust 19, 2015callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"A November Bride" is another novella by Beth Vogt. It is part of the series A Year of Wedding Novella Series. Normally I am not a fan of novellas. However, after reading several by Beth Vogt, I am finding if any author does a great job in the limited format, Beth Vogt is one of the best. Her characters are well developed and her plots move along smoothly.
"A November Bride" introduces us to Sadie McAllister. She is a personal chef who enjoys working for her clients and catering to their likes and dislikes on food tastes. A discussion with a client brings Sadie to realize that what she really craves is the idea of a husband and family. After being dumped once again by text message, Sadie decides that maybe God is telling her that her future holds another path. Enter Erik Davis, long time friend from high school who isn't having much luck at love himself. Are all of these girlfriends just a cover for a guy who can't grow up or is it more? Maybe they just are not the "right" one for him. With fun and laughter added, this novella tells us to maybe take that first scary step on the path the God shows you because sometimes the "right" one is not the one you think!
Great short novella for a cozy night!

A November Bride is one novella I was super excited to get an early copy of. Im so thankful to Beth Vogt and her publisher for allowing me to read it before its release date, via netgalley.com. This is my honest review.
A November Bride is the final installment of the first Year of Brides novella series. Its the only one Ive been able to read so far, but after LOVING it, I guarantee you Ill be finding a copy of the others when my budget permits. Fun, spunky, creative, and hilarious all describe Beth K. Vogts witty tale of romance that includes one of her favorite things: doors marked NEVER. Im sure Sadie and Erik thought a romance was behind a NEVER-type door. But if you pick up a copy of A November Bride for yourself, youll see just how wrong they were. Their journey from best friends to territory neither expected to test out is one exciting ride that kept me laughing from beginning to end.
I was already a fan of Beths (since her very first fictional novel, Wish You Were Here, which is still my favorite), but this one, though much shorter than her others, brought something new to the table. It held more of a lighthearted tone throughout, whereas her others tend to touch on very deep topics at timesanother reason I love her! She challenges you to dig deep along with the characters, pushing you to grow as a person as they do as characters. Even in this light romance, though, I found myself catching glimpses of a deeper and wider truth, that, even when life doesnt seem to be happening any way I thought it would, I can still hold on to hope in Jesus Christ. He knows exactly where Hes leading me, and if I grasp the hope Hes offering and cling to Him, He will bless me in ways I could never have imagined on my own. His dreams for me are much greater than the ones Ive made for myself. All I have to do is hold tight to Him in prayer and wait for that divine timing of His. Sound easy? Not so much. But the best things in life are worth fightingand waitingfor.
