A Season to Wed Three Winter Love Stories

They’ve helped orchestrate the perfect day for countless couples. Now twelve new couples will find themselves in the wedding spotlight in the second Year of Weddings novella collection.
Love at Mistletoe Inn by Cindy Kirk
Sometimes the road to happiness is paved with youthful mistakes.
Ten years after what she thought was her almost-wedding, Hope Prentiss discovers that the ceremony counted—and, as fate would have it, the jilted John Burke has just ridden back into town. After spending some time with John and helping plan a Christmas wedding for a mystery couple, Hope begins to wonder if she really wants a divorce . . . or a real wedding of her own.
A Brush with Love by Rachel Hauck
Revealing the beauty in other women might be Ginger Winters’s specialty—but it will take an unexpected kind of love to help Ginger see the beauty in herself.
Ginger Winters will be the “beauty-maker” for the Alabama society wedding of the decade. But when high-school crush Tom Wells shows up looking for a haircut, Ginger’s thinly veiled insecurities threaten to keep her from love once again . . . despite Tom’s best efforts.
Serving Up a Sweetheart by Cheryl Wyatt
Meadow knows how to serve delicious food to match any wedding theme. But can she accept love when it’s served up on a silver platter?
Meadow Larson is having the mother of all Mondays when her roof caves in during a blizzard, right before the most important wedding contract of her career. Renovation contractor Colin McGrath offers to fix Meadow’s roof, even though he knows he is the last person she would accept help from.
But the more Meadow gets to know the new Colin, the more she realizes God may have something more permanent in store than a new catering kitchen.

Award-winning author Cindy Kirk started writing after taking a class at a local community college. But her interest in the written word started years earlier when she was in her teens.
Cindy confides, "From the time I was a little girl, I thought everyone made up different endings to books, movies and television shows. Instead of counting sheep to go to sleep at night, I made up stories. Only later did I discover not everyone does this. 
I wrote my first book when I was fourteen. It was what would now be considered a young adult romance novel. It was about a girl who was attracted to an older boy (I think he was eighteen) who didn't know she was alive. I made the mistake of letting a teacher read it. Though she said it was good, I could tell by her expression she didn't like it. I threw the pages away and, although I wrote in my diary at sixteen 'I don't know what I'd do if I can't be a writer,' it would be years before I'd attempt to write another novel."
Unlike some writers, Cindy wasn't interested in shorter works of fiction. Once she began writing again, she jumped feet first into book length fiction. She loves reading and writing romance because she believes in the power of love and in happily ever after. An incurable romantic, Cindy loves seeing her characters grow and learn from their mistakes and, in the process, achieve a happy ending.
With over forty published novels under her belt, Cindy has written everything from inspirational romance (romance with a faith element) for Harlequin's Love Inspired and Harper Collins Christian publishing, sexy contemporaries for Harper Collins and books for Harlequin's Special Edition line which fall somewhere in between. She's now writing a series set in Door County for Montlake Romance.
These stories, which take place in the fictional community of Good Hope, Wisconsin, are a perfect fit for someone who enjoys writing emotionally satisfying stories about real people in the context of home and family.
Cindy hopes that once you read her books you'll be able to tell she is an eternal optimist, one who truly believes in the power of love. She invites you to kick off your shoes, pick up one of her books and get to know her.
She and her high school sweetheart husband live on an acreage in Nebraska with their two dogs.

WoW! All three of these novellas were fabulous. They don't link together but they were so good. I never put the book down.
This a five star book two times and one that book lovers should not miss. This book is so full of feel good emotions you can't put it down.
My favorite character was from Serving up a Sweet Heart the last novella in the book by Cheryl Wyatt. I of course love to cook and Meadow is a cater and the kitchen needs some help after the ceiling caves in so the contractor that helps her out was a mean guy in high school but after the Lord gets a hold of him he is a dream come true for most women. You are going to love this one I'm sure.
This would make the reader in your life very happy, Put under their Christmas tree.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
