Review: An August Bride by Debra Clopton


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GRYXPAA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00GRYXPAA&linkCode=as2&tag=chrisbooksrev-20&linkId=WVLCMWNWTHPCIE7Q

About the book:
As far as Kelsey Wilcox is concerned, her last cowboy was the last cowboy.

Kelsey Wilcox has had enough of cowboys. After the last one broke her heart, Kelsey traded in her boots for flip-flops, and the open range for a bistro on the beach.  Her life on Corpus Christi’s gorgeous beach might be a little lonely, but at least it’s heartbreak-free. At least until her cousin’s beachside wedding bucks Kelsey right back into the rodeo.

When unlucky-in-love Brent Corbin packed his groomsman’s tux for his friend’s wedding, he brought his boots and belt buckle with him. Brent isn’t exactly looking for love, but when he sees what appears to be a mermaid in distress, he jumps right in to rescue her.

So Kelsey finds herself plucked from the sea—and certain-drowning—by a gorgeous groomsman . . . in soaked cowboy boots. She’s quick to say thanks, but no thanks.

Brent dedicates the weekend to pursuing Kelsey—and Kelsey spends the weekend trying to deny an obvious match. She’s as stubborn as a wild horse, but Brent’s determination may tame her yet.

My thoughts:

An August Bride was a cute little novella. After being disappointed with the previous 3-4 Year of Weddings novellas, I was a little apprehensive about reading this one, but thankfully it was really good! I liked the characters and the plot. The "matchmakers" were funny and made me laugh with their scheming! I also enjoyed the setting. All in all, a great novella and I recommend it if you enjoy fun, easy romance reads.

  1. I love the covers of these wedding novellas. So pretty! I don't usually read these short novels, but have read a few lately. The last two I really liked. (This Quiet Sky by Joanne Bischof and One December Night by Melissa Tagg). So I may try a few from this series too. : )

    Always enjoy reading your reviews Melanie. Have a great Christmas!
