AN APRIL BRIDE by Lenora Worth

Dun, dun, da dun, dun, dun, da, dun.  I hear wedding bells again and I can't get enough of it.  I've never been to a wedding, I know sad right, but I can experience them in novels like this one.

It is very difficult, planning a wedding.  Everything must be perfect.  Perfect dress, perfect location, perfect flowers, perfect color arrangements, perfect everything.  But the most important thing to remember is the perfect groom. (if you're a woman that is)

This seemed to be the case for Stella Carson.  Stella's wedding is in four weeks and she has everything except the groom.  Wanting to fight for his country, her fiance, Marshall Henderson went off to war and got in an accident where he was the only survivor. They were not able to see each other for a year.

Now Marshall is coming back home and the happy reunion that Stella imagined did not come through. Even though the man who came back looks and sounds like Marshall, her Marshall did not come home to her.

After the incident, Marshall was confined to a hospital for a year for recovery.  That is where the doctors told him that he has post-traumatic stress syndrome. According to this book, this means that his memories are locked up some-where in his subconscious and it would take some time to get it all back.

I really felt for Stella when the love of her life finally comes back home, but did not seem to remember her!  I would have been heart broken, but Stella is a fighter and is determined to help Marshall regain his memories.  Even if that means that she has to put off the wedding.

Marshall does not want to put off the wedding,  he wants to have everything go along as planned, but can Stella do it. Marry Marshall knowing that he is not the same?  Find out in the next installment of A Year Of Wedding Novella, An April Bride.

+Lenora Worth wrote an amazing book that had me crying. I mean finding and losing the love of your life on the same day.  He's the same man but all the memories that make them special together are locked up inside his head.  Any woman would have questioned herself and called off the wedding right away, but not Stella.  I admired her strength and determination to get her Marshall back.

To me Marshall was selfish.  I know he had a head injury and that everything was unclear and frightening, but expecting Stella to still go through with the wedding to a stranger is hard.  I admired Stella her strength in doing what she did, even though it must have been extremely difficult. It also turned out to be the best decision she ever made.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to review A May Bride.  I requested the book and was approved, but the transit from the site and onto my tablet got mixed up and I never got it.  Now the book is unavailable.  Some day I would get it back but not now.  I would be able to review A June Bride though, so look forward for that.
