Love Takes the Cake: A September Wedding Story by Betsy St. Amant

Charlotte Cantrell is always the baker; never the bride. When Will, a regular at Charlotte’s bakery, catches her attention, she can only hope that he is the reliable man this single mother has always hoped to find. The problem is that he’s regularly stopping in to buy cookies for another girl. But when Charlotte is hired to bake a host of wedding goodies for a difficult bride and finds out Will is the best man, she has the perfect opportunity to get to know him better—and find out how serious Will is about this other girl in his life.

The Perfect Arrangement: An October Wedding Story by Katie Ganshert

Amelia Woods is a small-town wallflower and the proud owner of Forget-Me-Nots, a quaint flower shop. Her love life has always been a bit lackluster—until she ends up in an embarrassing fender-bender with handsome Nate Gallagher. Meanwhile, Amelia’s younger brother, William, has proposed to his girlfriend. Amelia would be excited except she has evidence that the fiancée is not who she says she is. It seems Nate is the only one available for any advice-giving, and he’s good at it—and pretty fun to talk to too. As Amelia works to craft the perfect flower arrangements for other people, she begins to wonder if real love is better than the dream. And if it is, will Nate still be interested when he learns who she is?

Love in the Details: A November Wedding Story by Becky Wade

When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over. Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she longs to be with Josh but doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her smalltown world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn?



Great book!!! So full of love and romance and stories that leave you wanting more! I have never been a short story fan, I like more details! But these are amazing, I definitely wanted more from each story though!! They were so great that I would love to see where the characters end up!

All of the characters are so sweet! The love stories are each unique and believable. The first story Love Takes the Cake is absolutely adorable! Charlotte’s story is a great overcoming of past mistakes and finding love in the most unexpected places! Will is the sweet overprotective brother that we all know and love. They are so perfect for each other, they had me rooting them on through the whole story!

The Perfect Arrangement is such a cute story, love the characters especially George. I think that he is my favorite character! The way the author talks about the floral arrangements makes it feel real-life, up close and personal! The way that the two main characters meet is so romantic and funny! Nate is so caring and outgoing, he such a great match for the shy, loving Amelia. I love their exchanges and the hilarity that is included within each email. The way that love slowly blooms between them is inspiring and makes for a great read!

Love is in the Details definitely finishes off the book without dissappointment. A long lost love returned. A love that endured a whole lot of anger, frustration and separation. The way that Holly and Josh were able to overcome so many years of misunderstandings and missing each other, it made me want to cry and scream at them at the same time. I enjoyed their journey, it was funny and beautiful. Once they both finally figured out what they wanted they went for it! They were finally happy.

All of these stories have one great message, trust God. Sometimes our love lives don’t go as planned, but we need to trust in God and know he is working miracles for you! He is working out all your problems, trust him and be patient. The love between each of these characters, are inspiring and they are all awesome people that I would love to know in real life!! Such great love stories! If you are a true romanitc  you will LOVE these stories!! Can’t wait to find more from each of these authors!!


I received this book from a publishing house in exchange for a fair and honest review. I will definitely be recommending it to everyone!!
