A January Bride by Deborah Raney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: Christian Romance
Book Description: Who can work in a house that's overrun by contractors and carpenters? Not Madeleine Houser, a successful novelist who gladly accepts the help of her octogenarian friend, Ginny, to arrange for a temporary office in the charming bed and breakfast owned by Ginny's friend, Arthur. Maddie’s never met the innkeeper––but a friendship grows between them as Maddie and Arthur leave messages for each other each day. To Maddie’s alternate delight and chagrin, she seems to be falling for the inn’s owner––a man who's likely many years her senior––and who she’s never even met.
My thoughts: I'm excited to read this series of Novella's. There is a bride book for every month. Last month I read the December edition. The January book is cute, clean, and a quick romance book fix.
Maddie Houser is a well know writer. She has moved to her sister's old home during renovations. It is making it hard for her to write. In desperation, she changes her day location to a beautiful bed and breakfast to get her work done. The owner of the establishment is not what she envisioned.
I enjoyed reading about Maddie and Arthur. Their romance is not an easy one. They are in their 30's and have had past heartaches. One thing that they share is a Christian faith. While the religion is not the main theme, it is one of the anchor's that they have in life.
