A Wedding in Springtime by Amanda Forester + Featured Freebie


A Wedding in Springtime (Marriage Mart, #1)

Five minutes into Miss Eugenia Talbot's presentation at court, notorious rogue Mr. William Grant made her laugh, ruining her debut. To hush up the scandal, Eugenia's aunt hires a matchmaker to quickly find a suitor— anyone except the infamous William Grant—to help restore Eugenia's reputation. But amiable Eugenia shows a disturbing tendency to follow her heart, and is again caught in the company of notorious Grant. When a traitor creeps closer, threatening to ruin more than just Eugenia's reputation, her kindheartedness may be her ultimate undoing...







My Rating: 3/5

A sweet book. Wedding in Springtime was such a cute romance. I didn't love it, but I definitely liked it.


Eugenia was an okay heroine, though she came off as weak sometimes. She was indecisive and needed to show more backbone. And she was forgettable as a character. But, she was still likable. So, I didn't have a huge problem with her.

William was much more fun. He was adorable. He was a very lively character and he made things so much more interesting whenever he was in a scene. But he was also a sweet man who felt deeply, with both good feelings and bad. When he was in love, it was all-consuming and, when his heart broke, my heart ached for him. He was a great character, a wonderful hero.

The romance in this book was mostly sweet, with the exception of one light scene. Eugenia and Will were cute together and their relationship developed realistically. I truly felt their love for each other.

The plot was okay, but it was became slow in a few places. I thought that there were too pointless obstacles added to the plot. Most of them didn't seem necessary to include. But, I was still kept interested the entire way through. The ending was perfectly sweet.

Wedding in Springtime was a good read. I didn't love it, but I did like it. It was very sweet. If you want a nice, light, sweet read-this is your book.
