An October Bride - Katie Ganshert

4.5 Stars

She wants to make her father's dream come true. She doesn't realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.

Emma Tate isn't a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they're getting married-so Emma's dying father can walk her down the aisle.

While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications-the biggest being their true feelings for each other.

In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father's dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future.

Katie Ganshert graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison with a degree in education, and worked as a fifth grade teacher for several years before staying home to write full-time. She was born and raised in the Midwest, where she lives with her husband, their young son, and their goofy black lab, Bubba. When she's not busy writing or playing or reading or snuggling, she is obsessing over the paperwork and the waiting that comes with adoption.

I thought this was the best one yet! It was a little more serious than the others ones. I don't normally read very many books with a cancer theme because cancer  has taken so many lives close to me. But this one wasn't written as a sad story, but more on the hopeful side.
I loved the characters. I don't normally take to male characters but I loved Jake right away!
I also realized while reading how good the writing was! It was definitely one of the best ones yet. Very romantic and sweet.

I went to look up other books by this author so I could read more - and to my surprise, I had already read one of her books! LOL
