A December Bride by Denise Hunter

Their first date was spontaneous---neither had a date to a particularly awkward wedding. But what started as a whim has turned into an accidental---and very public---engagement announcement, leaving Layla O’Reilly fit to be tied. Under normal circumstances, Derek Murphy---rich snob and best friend of her cheating ex-boyfriend---would be the last person she’d want to date, much less marry. But the news of their upcoming nuptials has convinced a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency---which could put her fledgling home-staging business in the black.Derek Murphy’s pronouncement at the wedding seemed crazy to Layla, but he’s loved her secretly for years, even when she was dating his best friend. He’s sure she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then. But maybe, just maybe, he can convince her. When Layla agrees to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client, Derek couldn’t be happier. The race is on.For Layla it’s the chance to save her career. But for Derek, it’s the chance to win her heart. If they can make it to the end of the year, maybe she’ll be his December Bride.


A December Bride is the first novella in the A Year Of Weddings novellas. I actually liked this one and I couldn't stop reading it. It is short (112 pages) so you can read it in bed without accidentally staying up late .I thought  it is well done for a novella. It isn't rushed like some I have read. 

If you are looking for a cute and quick read this Holiday season I think you would want to read this one. 

I give this 4 out of 5
