Review – Love on a Deadline: An August Wedding Story by Kathryn Springer

Love on a DeadlineI have enjoyed quite a few of these Year of Weddings novellas that have released in the past two years. There are a handful that have become favorite stories, and this is definitely one of them.

The author did a great job of creating two main characters that I connected with immediately upon meeting them in the story. The fact that they knew each other in high school and the whole back story involving the way Mac was treated in high school tugged at my heart.

The chemistry between Mac and Ethan was just perfect and the additional love story between Hollis and Connor added even more depth to the story. The truth that people can change over time was another nice theme in the book.

I would have loved for this book to go on even a little bit longer, maybe with an epilogue for the happy couple. However, I was still very happy with the happily-ever-after that I came away with. (5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Love on a DeadlineMacKenzie “Mac” Davis left her hometown of Red Leaf, Wisconsin, to pursue a degree in journalism. But when her dad, the town’s beloved Coach Davis, suffers a mild heart attack, Mac returns home to help out. She takes a job at the weekly newspaper but instead of covering serious topics, her editor wants her to write about social events—like the garden club’s flower show and the historical society’s afternoon tea. Mac knows it’s no way to earn her father’s respect—or the attention of one of the newspapers she hopes will hire her when she leaves Red Leaf.

When Hollis Channing, Mac’s high school nemesis, returns to Red Leaf to marry her celebrity fiancé, the editor asks Mac to cover the big event—and all the festivities leading up to—for the newspaper.

The last thing Mac wants to do is reconnect with the person who made her life miserable when she was a teenager . . . unless it’s spending time with Ethan Channing, the bride’s older brother—and Mac’s first crush.

Mac is no longer the awkward girl who wore the school mascot costume to the Homecoming dance but she realizes something hasn’t changed. Her feelings for Ethan.
