"A January Bride" (Deborah Raney) ★★★★


Part of A Year of Wedding Novella series
In A January Bride by Deborah Raney, what will happen when novelist Madeleine Houser’s “pen pal” friendship with a lonely widower takes an unexpected turn?
Who can work in a house that's overrun by contractors and carpenters? Not Madeleine Houser, a successful novelist who gladly accepts the help of her octogenarian friend, Ginny, to arrange for a temporary office in the charming bed and breakfast owned by Ginny's friend, Arthur. Maddie's never met the innkeeper - but a friendship grows between them as Maddie and Arthur leave messages for each other each day. To Maddie's alternate delight and chagrin, she seems to be falling for the inn's owner - a man who's likely many years her senior - and who she's never even met.

This is a sweet romance - it is labeled as a Christian Romance, however, the faith undertones were not overbearing.   I enjoyed how the relationship between Maddie and Art began and all the misunderstandings.  My heart ached a bit for both of them - Art because he couldn't move on without guilt and Maddie because she was falling in love with a man that still loved a ghost.  Ginny was terrific too.  Definitely recommend this one - anyone looking for a quick read that is filled with good, clean romance - January Bride is the one for you!
