To Have and to Hold is a collection of three novellas in the “Year of Weddings” series, this being the autumn addition. The first, “Love Takes the Cake: A September Wedding Story”, is by Betsy St. Amant, the second, “The Perfect Arrangement: An October Wedding Story”, is by Katie Ganshert, and the third, “Love in the Details: A November Wedding Story” is by Becky Wade.
Personally, I requested to review this book for the sole purpose of being able to read Becky Wade’s addition, but I made the mistake of not reading the description of the book in my excitement, and was disappointed to see that it was the same novella that was released last year by her. Oh well, I thought to myself, I guess I’ll just read the other ones. Boy, am I glad I did! Both were cute, fun stories, and one was even a spin-off of Pride and Prejudice, which completely and totally made up for my mistake–I let out a giddy squeal as soon as I read the first line! None of the stories are boring or rushed, as novellas in collections can tend to be; all were fresh, original, and adorable. I would totally recommend this to anyone looking to get a quick read in amidst all of the back-to-school busyness.
