My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars


A year's worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.
She wants to make her father's dream come true. She doesn't realize her own dream has been in front of her the whole time.

Emma Tate isn't a risk taker, so everyone in her small Midwest town is surprised when she suddenly becomes engaged to lifelong friend Jake Sawyer. No one but Jake and Emma know the true reason they're getting married---so Emma's dying father can walk her down the aisle.

While Jake and Emma plan an autumn wedding together, it becomes clear that their agreement has a few complications---the biggest being their true feelings for each other.

In this novella by award-winning author Katie Ganshert, a young woman must reconcile her dying father's dreams with her own dreams for love and for her future.

My Review:

This is my favorite story of this series and I'm so excited to find a great new author!

Emma is a very unselfish woman and it shows in all she does. When she calls of her wedding because of her dad's cancer diagnosis (among other reasons), her life moves on in trying to do all she can to make her dad's last days happy. A surprise discovery causes her to realize that there IS something she can do to make his every wish come true and that involves getting married so he can walk her down the aisle. The only problem? She's not dating anyone, but Jake Sawyer solves that be proposing that they pretend to be engaged. The whole town jumps on board and this couple finds themselves in a pickle--to get married or not.

I love Jake! He's a true gentleman and very considerate and unselfish himself. Emma is hard not to love as well. She's as sweet as can be. I loved them both, as well as their interactions and chemistry. This couple is adorable! I also loved the characters in this small, nosy, town. Such a fun setting in one of my favorite months with an added bonus of a great romance.

Content: mild romance. Clean!
