Kate finds the ideal wedding dress, a vintage thirties dream, which has a note attached that Kate finds intriguing. Who was the mysterious woman to whom the dress had belonged? Kate tries, through social media (what would we do with it now?), to trace the woman. What she uncovers is a poignant and heart-warming love story that will have you reaching for the tissues. The very satisfactory ending gave me the same lovely feeling that comes with Christmas.
The stars have aligned, the fates have spoken, the horoscopes have decried it, so Kate is getting married this Christmas. Who cares if the man of her dreams isn’t all that dreamy and he spends more time watching the game than paying attention to her? One thing that is worthy of her daydreams is the vintage wedding dress she finds. But when she finds a note pinned inside the dress, she becomes more interested in unravelling the mystery surrounding its owner than in continuing to plan her own quickly approaching wedding.
As with all of Talli’s books, Married by Midnight is wonderfully unique. I love the premise of the book, and how everything came together. Kate is a funny, spunky character, and her mother and sister made great side characters.
I loved the overall message of this book about following your heart, doing what’s right for you, and continuing to believe in love, even when things don’t work out exactly how you planned. For such a short story, it packed a punch.
Married by Midnight is cute, sweet, funny, and romantic. Another winner from Talli Roland!
just a few days from the wedding, Kate finds a note attached to her newly purchased wedding dress. She sets out to find out who wrote it and why. The author shows here how social media can be used in the best possible way.
What I often find lacking in reading short stories, is a deep sense of being inside the character's head. This is not the case with this book, I was with Kate throughout.
In my opinion Talli is the mistress (I won't say master, she's female!) of great plot ideas.
Towards the end I was surrounded by a mass of crumpled up soggy tissues. Have them ready!
If anybody is wanting to read a Christmas novella, but not sure which to chose ...you've just found it!
There is not one single reason to not give this book five stars.
Kate and her mother are obsessed by astrology and plan their life accordingly, but do the stars always determine your future fate? I really enjoyed Kate’s search for the previous owner of her wedding gown and couldn’t wait to find out whether she will succeed. The whole story that engulfs the vintage wedding dress and its owner is truly magnificent and endearing.
I read Married by Midnight in one sitting and loved every single page. If you are looking for a quick and inspiring read with plenty of romantic and suspense filled moments, then this novella is definitely the right choice for you.
For me as a major Talli fan girl, I thought this story was particularly delightful. I read this in one sitting and might have sniffled. Some people might dismiss chick-lit as being unsubstantial fluff, but there's always been a place in my world for fluff and long may there always be.
In summary, a lovely Christmas(ish) tale.
This is another wonderful winter tale from author Talli Roland that you can put the kettle on, sit down and relax and read in just one sitting. The perfect short story for this time of year, with its heart-warming storyline full of Christmas cheer.
