When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over.
Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she can’t help but feel horrible for the pain she caused him. And even though she longs to be with Josh, she doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her small town world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn?
Love in the Details is Becky Wade’s first novella and digital-only release via Zondervan’s “Year of Weddings” Collection. Becky is known for her small-town Texas love stories, and Love in the Details continues with that cozy familiarity for faithful readers; it also serves as a great introduction to her work for new readers.
This is the perfect read for those optimistic hopeless romantics that love a story of second chances. Love lost and then reclaimed is given a fresh perspective through Holly and Josh’s romance. It is difficult to craft robust characterization and plot in a restricted page count, but Becky masters the complexity of emotion and pacing.
The only flaw in this story, as with all beautifully crafted novellas, is that the quaint town of Martinsburg, Texas and the companionship of Holly and Josh were taken from me too soon. If you are looking for a short and endearing story to cozy up with on these blustery autumn evenings, then look no further than Love in the Details.
