Josh still doesn’t understand how things could have fallen apart so many years ago. He’s had a bruised heart for many years and struggles with anger. I really felt for him and thought that he was a very interesting character.
I liked Holly so much! It broke her heart to end the relationship with Josh and although she feels that it was for a good reason, she has carried the pain around with her for all of these years.
This novella reminds me (just a little bit) of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. In that novel, Anne Elliot ends the relationship with Captain Wentworth because she is persuaded that he is not worthy of her station, yet she never stops loving him. In Love in the Details, Holly is persuaded by Josh’s mother to end the engagement, for his own good. There are other wonderful little similarities, yet Love in the Details is definitely its own creation and a novella that I highly recommend. I just like seeing the hint of Persuasion in the story line, as that is one of my all time favorite novels.
I have enjoyed many of the Year of Weddings novellas. Love in the Details is definitely one of my favorites.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.

As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she can’t help but feel horrible for the pain she caused him.
