Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence for her shoe.
A woman realizes she was meant to decline a wedding invitation, but only after she’s arrived. Can she borrow some of a stranger’s charm to make it through an awkward night?
A power outage during a rehearsal dinner. A vanishing bride. A distraught groom. How’s an innkeeper to keep up? Especially when the bride reappears with a strange request: help her escape her own wedding.
It’s awfully easy to bring “something old” to your wedding when one of the brides happens to be Death’s 700 year-old Head Minion.
As if a museum wasn’t enough of a draw for a history nerd, throw in holograms, a secret wedding, and a mysteriously well-informed woman and things really get interesting.
Weddings are so much more than parties. They’re a gathering of family and friends. The start of an adventure. And most importantly, they’re a celebration of love. From Bella Books comes a collection of short stories sure to put you in the mood to say “I do.”
Enjoy these romantic stories from the following Bella authors:
Kaye C. - June is a traditional time for weddings and a month to celebrate Pride. What could be timelier than an anthology focusing on f/f love with weddings as a common denominator. Eleven different authors create short stories with romances. They include finding love while preparing for a wedding, at the ceremony, and even a story that includes an historical wedding. Most stories cover just a few days, but a couple extend longer. There are too many storylines to try and summarize but several of them I would gladly read whole novels with the characters as the leads. Now I have some new authors I can be on the lookout for future books.
Carolyn M. - This was a charming anthology that makes a great "palate cleanser" between long novels. The timing was terrific, as others have pointed out. The collected short stories cover a variety of circumstances, characters and durations. A nice change in pace from a variety of authors.
Melina B. - This is an enjoyable read for the summer season as weddings start picking up again. I enjoyed how the anthology featured very different genres and writing styles, and a range of established authors and new names. Some stories were stronger than others, and the wedding theme was more prominent in some. Jaime Clevenger and Tagan Shephard's stories stood out for me. Overall, I'd recommend this book as a nice and light read for the summer.
