A September Bride by Kathryn Springer


 Annie’s always wanted a home and a family. But will pretending to be a bride get her closer to her dreams?
All Annie Price has ever wanted is a place to call home. Growing up in the foster care system, that dream seemed far away, but now Annie’s dream may be coming true. A friend she met in an online book group wants to retire and has offered Annie a fresh start managing her little bookstore. Believing the opportunity is an answer to prayer, Annie packs her suitcase and moves to Red Leaf, Wisconsin.
The residents of Red Leaf welcome Annie into the fold . . . everyone except the bookstore owner’s son, Jesse Kent. But Annie refuses to let the handsome deputy keep her from embracing her new home with open arms. She even volunteers to help the local historical society refurbish an old church and agrees to be the ‘bride’ for a special reenactment celebrating the museum’s open house.
Jesse Kent can’t believe his mother has handed the keys to her business over to a woman she met on the Internet. Annie’s beautiful, of course, and smart as a whip, but what do they really know about her, anyway? What if she’s come to their town just for his mother’s money? The only way to see if his suspicions about Annie Price are true is to keep a close eye on her—even if it means he has to marry her! Planning their mock wedding will give him the chance to uncover Annie’s motive for moving to town. But as the day of the wedding approaches and secrets come to light, Jesse must face the truth. He wants Annie to be his September bride . . . for real.

This story was one that was so very well written, that I was so in love with the story that I couldn’t get enough of it.  I just didn’t want the story to end because I thought that it was such a great story it kept my attention, and kept me turning the pages.
Even though the story was very predictable, like most romances are, there were some times that I just couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next.  I just loved the characters, Annie and Jessie, equally to the point where I can’t tell you which one I enjoyed more!  The storyline was one that makes you wonder about the past, and leaves you dreaming about the future.
I would really recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new read, even if you’re not normally a fan of romances.  There was just something about this story that will drag you in and make you want to read more from this author in the future!
