Review: An April Bride by Lenora Worth


About the book:
A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed. 

War changes everything…even their love. 

Bride-to-be Stella Carson can't wait to marry her longtime sweetheart Marshall Henderson. But Marshall has been away serving his country and has suffered a head wound. After being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, he has distanced himself from Stella, asking her not to visit him in a Washington, D.C., hospital. Marshall returns to Louisiana just four weeks before the wedding, but as the big day draws near, Stella wonders if the man she's loved for most of her life has become someone else. Can true love conquer all for Stella and Marshall, even the tragedy of war?

My thoughts:

I've been enjoying the Year of Wedding novellas and I really liked the storyline for An April Bride. Unfortunately, while I liked the story a lot, I wasn't a fan of the writing style and how characters would say something and then shortly thereafter seem to have forgotten what was said earlier/changed their mind. It got a little frustrating to me.

I really felt for both of the main characters. I have a soft spot for books dealing with amnesia/memory loss, because I can't imagine how horrible it would be to not remember your loved ones. The romance between Marshall and Stella was sweet. I enjoyed "watching" them work through their struggles to try and find the love and memories Marshall lost. It was great the way Stella helped Marshall try to remember things without pushing too hard.

Overall, An April Bride was a good story. I enjoyed reading it and recommend it to fans of contemporary novellas.
