A December Bride - Denise Hunter

4 Stars!

What started as a whim turned into an accidental---and very public---engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season---for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?

Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy - the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé - would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency - a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map. Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.

For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.

Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she's been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

This is my 6th Denise Hunter book, that should say something right there! She is one of my "go to" authors when I am in a bookstore.

This is a short but very sweet book. In usual Denise Hunter style - there are great characters with great personalities. This book is fun and flirty, but heart warming while staying very clean and tasteful at the same time. It has a nice fun but believable storyline that will keep you guessing and make you want to read more. More of Denise's books, that is!

I absolutely adore the cover!!! This is part of a series of books by different authors called "A Year of Weddings". Personally - I think this is the prettiest cover so far! This one certainly makes me want to read them all. Some of the authors I have heard of and know and some of them I don't. So this would be a great way to get to know them.

Thank you Booksneeze for sending me this e-book novella to read and review!
