Layla O’Reilly found herself accidentally and publicly engaged to Seth Murphy, her ex-fiance’s best friend and the last person she would want to marry. When their upcoming and phony wedding finally got the attention of a big client she had been wanting to work for, there’s nothing else she could do but to keep up the facade. How long could Layla keep up the pretenses, and could Seth – who has secretly loved Layla for years, win her heart?
A December Bride is a good novella to warm the heart this cold month. The plot is very simple and for me, it’s easy to tell what would happen in the end. Seth was described like in other romance novels – rich, has a rippling muscular body and almost perfect. The heroine, Layla, has some personal issues but as usual, is attractive and endearing. I wanted to know how God plays a part in the story but the Christian spin was the characters attending church regularly and that one time Layla talked to God. I wish the book was longer, but the details were all there so I wasn’t left hanging too much. This is a very sweet read and I would recommend A December Bride to the romantics out there who need a quick pick-me-up love story.
