A CHAPEL OF LOVE SHORT STORY
After a very public career disaster,
journalist Jeff Talbert-Lyndon wants to escape from the world. Picturesque
Shenadoah Falls, Virginia, seems like the perfect place to relax and regroup
before heading back to real life. But when he discovers the charming bookstore
Secondhand Prose – and its lovely, slightly overwhelmed owner- he finds a
part-time job and a very tempting reason to stay…
Melissa Portman is fighting a losing battle when it comes to saving her grandmother’s
store – and selling the historic building may be her only option. Yet when a
handsome stranger wanders in one day, she wonders if her very own fairytale is
Jeff Talbert-Lyndon decides to head to Shenadoah Falls, Virginia to try to escape from the world after a very public career disaster. Hiding out in the remote cabin he finds himself a bit stir crazy and ends up in the local book store where he meets Melissa Portman.
Melissa has been fighting what feels like a losing battle trying to keep her grandmother’s store in business. When Jeff walks into her life and asks about a part time job she has to turn him down. Jeff however doesn’t quite know how to take no for an answer and decides he’s going to volunteer in the store.
A Fairytale Bride is a rather cute little novella featuring a love story about a couple who are both avid readers. As a reader myself I couldn’t help but love the setting to this story but there’s also a bit of a hitch to the couple’s fairy tale when it turns out Jeff is related to the family trying to buy out the store.
I really liked both characters in here. Melissa with her store and cats she’s inherited has a rather quirky vibe to her and Jeff is the good guy who is trying to distance himself from a not so nice family. A good mix of chemistry, drama and even a bit of humor here and there in this story.
Overall, nice characters and a nice setting in this short little romance read, definitely one I enjoyed.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
