“Meg Moseley follows her stellar debut with this lovely dive down south . . . this inspirational tale is destined to be another winner.” -Julie Cantrell (on Gone South)

A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.

She thinks she has prepared for her wedding all her life . . . but it seems she may have forgotten the most important part.

Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life-a wedding just like the one her younger sister is planning back home. Their single mom will pay for Alexa’s wedding, but Ellie started her own wedding fund years ago. She only needs to find a groom.

At a wedding at her church, Ellie bumps into a man who’s one of the guests. She’s noticed him around the neighborhood, but today he introduces himself as Gray Whitby. They embark on a whirlwind romance, but her mother doesn’t trust freewheeling men like Gray.

When Ellie risks her own future for her sister’s sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle to Ellie’s family?

Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they’ve begun come crashing down?

I totally understood Ellie and her troubles.  Feeling like she needs to follow other peoples wants, learning how to set boundaries in her life is very tough for her.  With the kind of mother she has, it is easy to get why she hesitates so much with stepping away from the path her mom decides is right. 

Managing family expectations is never easy, but Ellie’s packs a little extra punch.   Then she meets Gray and he’s definitely hard to resist (I was half in love with him myself).  It’s an emotional journey for her but one that makes their HEA all the sweeter. 

I have really been enjoying these little novellas – they are nice bite size romantic treats, quick reads with a lot of heart, and they’ve exposed me to new authors as well.  With A May Bride Moseley delivers a winner.  It is a story of emotions, troubles and love, with complicated family dynamics and personal growth.
