Meet the people who make it all happen – the planners, the photographers, the musicians who have helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples as they find their own happy endings in the second Year of Weddings novella collection. When image becomes everything, it’s up to love to refocus the heart.

Photographer Jenna Harrison wants every bride and groom to look picture perfect on their special day, putting her heart into every wedding to give the couple memorable images of their love. But her own heart is still broken, the unworn wedding dress hanging in her closet a reminder that relationships aren’t always as perfect as they look through her camera lens. But Jenna has faith that she will find true love. Until then, she must be patient and trust in God’s plan and His perfect timing.

Attorney Ashton Vance is the one that got away. When an embarrassing Photoshopped picture of put an end to his political aspirations, he blamed Jenna. So what if the photo led to his being offered a dream job and changing his life for the better? Jenna betrayed his trust, and two years later, Ashton’s heart still hasn’t recovered.

It was me. His younger sister’s three words turn Ashton’s world upside down. He must ask Jenna’s forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?



A loveable romance to make you smile!

I do love a good contemporary romance story and this one was great fun. It’s a story about making mistakes but then trying to learn from them to get your own happily ever after.

Jenna is a wedding photographer who makes everyone’s big day look like a dream come true. She loves to be involved in their day even though her own didn’t go as she had hoped. The day before her wedding her fiancé Ash accuses her of posting a photoshopped image on Facebook that turns him a laughing stock. He doesn’t trust what she is saying and publically calls her a liar asking for his engagement ring back. Jenna is heartbroken believing her trust in herself, men and God has been broken beyond repair. It is only after finding new friends and a new Church that she starts to rebuild her life back together. Just when she believes she is back on track Ash turns up at her door. He tells her that he knows she didn’t post the photo and is hoping that after he has apologized she will consider being the photographer for his sisters wedding.

This kind of made me want to shout out ‘Are you being serious!’ I mean you left her the day before your wedding for a photo being posted that she didn’t even send! Ok rant over now. Having said that Ash does now know that he made a big mistake in not believing her the first time round. This means that he will do what ever it takes to get her to trust in him again. Its only after spending some time together that he begins feel like they should give it another shot. The only way this will work is for them to both really forgive each other and leave the past behind them – as hard as it may be. It’s the only way that they can both move forward.

The book has strong likable characters and doesn’t feel rushed even though it is only a short story. A great afternoon read, so if you like contemporary romances then you will love this!
