A May Bride by Meg Moseley

 She’s prepared for her wedding all her life … but she forgot a few things.
Ellie Martin, a country girl in Atlanta, often de-stresses from city life by tending the flower beds of a church near her apartment. She has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life, a wedding like the one her younger sister is planning back in their hometown. Their single mom will pay for Alexa’s wedding, but Ellie started her own wedding fund years
ago. She only needs to find a groom.
She bumps into a man who’s a guest at a wedding on the church grounds. She’s noticed him around the neighborhood, but today he introduces himself as Gray Whitby. They embark on a whirlwind romance, but her mother doesn’t trust freewheeling men like him. Standing up to Mom leads Ellie to stick up for Alexa too.
When Ellie risks her own plans for her sister’s sake, Gray feels betrayed. Will he always play second fiddle?
Will Ellie and Gray reconcile their differences so her dream wedding can come true, or will the romance they’ve begun come crashing down?
This story was one that had me laughing at some points, and at others I was so emotional that I didn’t know what to do.
Ellie was an amazing character, a bit worrisome about her future at times, but overall amazing. She has a great strength and she tries to help everyone that she cares about. Even if they don’t really appreciate her help.
When Ellie meets Gray in a completely unusual way, their relationship just seems to take off. I really liked Gray’s character because it seemed like he was able to calm Ellie down, and other times he just riled her up a bit more.
One thing that I did enjoy about this story was that even though Ellie and Gray had jumped into a relationship together, they didn’t go too far into the deep end. They both took their time on developing a stable relationship before they jumped straight to marriage.
Overall, I think this was another great addition to the Year of Weddings series!
