Kiss the Bride by Rachael Johns Review


It seems that wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta...

And that suits single mom, Magdalena Davis, just fine. It means the local gossips will stop hounding her about returning to town and the secret she’s kept for fifteen years. Home to make peace with her sick mother, the last thing Mags wants is to get involved in Marietta’s big celebrity wedding. But when her teenage daughter cajoles her into auditioning to sing with a local heartthrob, all her plans for flying under the radar zoom out of the window.

Country music singer, Jake Kohl, has lost his muse. He’s jaded from years of life in the fast lane and wants to settle in Marietta and lead a normal life. He reluctantly agrees to sing at the celebrity wedding, but what he doesn't expect is his co-singer to reignite his passion. But it’s not just the music she awakes in him. Magdalena makes Jake feel and want things he hasn’t for far too long, but there’s more to her than meets the eye.

Can Jake solve the mystery that is Magdalena and win her heart?

My Review: 

A beautiful love story.

Magdalena Davis has finally returned home after leaving town when she got pregnant at 17. The popular girl and preacher daughter was ashamed of what happened.  When she found out her mother had cancer, she decided it was finally time to come home and be with her family. She wanted her daughter to get to know her family better.

Jake Kohl needed some time away from the music scene. He fell in love with the small town of Marietta when he performed at the annual fair. This is where he decided he would settle down.

When a celebrity wedding comes to town, they ask Jake to sing at the wedding. He needs to find someone locally to sing a duet with him. He knew the minute he saw and heard Magdalena sing she would be perfect for the job.

Practicing together brings Magdalena and Jake closer than either expected. Will they survive the wedding madness and town gossips? 

I really enjoyed this book. The characters seemed so real and the story one that leaves you wanting more.
