Australia Week: Kiss the Bride by Rachael Johns

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?

Magdalena is back in her hometown Marietta. Her mother has cancer and she and her daughter Bella have moved there to help with her care. Marietta fled the town while being pregnant and this is the first time she returns. Bella is now a cheerful and happy teenager. Magdalena hasn't told anyone who the father is, so people are still guessing and it's a topic she doesn't easily talk about. When there are auditions in the town to find a singer for a celebrity wedding Bella makes sure Magdalena goes to the audition. The wedding is the event of the decade and the winner of the competition gets to sing a duet with country singer Jake Kohl.

Jake is a well known artist and isn't looking forward to the audition, but when he hears and sees Magdalana he knows she's the one straight away. She's the person he wants to sing the duet with and he also wants to get to know her better. Only Magdalena doesn't date, she doesn't let anyone come close. Will Jake manage to find out why and will he be able to convince her to give him a chance?

Kiss the Bride is a wonderful, romantic story. I had a constant smile on my face while I was reading about Jake and Magdalena. The story also has an emotional and sad side and Rachael Johns has written that in such a tasteful and beautiful way, I really like her style. This novella has a nice twist and it's sweet while it also has some depth. I loved it and highly recommend it.
