5.0 out of 5 starsLoved it!

I absolutely loved Isaac and his adorable daughter, Sarah in this story. I couldn't stop laughing at Jenna's mouth turista, she is so corky. I loved the instant attraction and connection they all had. Jenna grows so much within the story and Isaac learns to open up and love again. I especially love how both Jenna and Isaac interacted with Sarah, so adorable. This is such a cute story to read. It's a must read!

I loved all of the stories about the MacAllisters! Each one of them were a real treat and I highly recommend them all! 👍 They aren't long but you don't feel like they are missing anything. Read them in order and you will find that they are a very satisfying portrait of nice, loving supportive people, with cute humor and lots of romantic vibes!!!! Definitely 5 stars!!!

I first visited Rivers End about a year ago, listening to Jenna and Isaac’s story. Recently I’ve picked up the series again and am bingeing on the audios. I was thrilled to see that this book is the culmination of this through-line and a happily ever after for my favorite couple. Isaac owns the Big River Lodge and runs it while caring for his daughter Sara. He’d been a single dad for almost as long as Sara had been alive, so when a guest arrived who knocked him for a loop, he was careful about giving up his heart and letting Jenna come close to Sara. Didn’t take long for him to fall in love and dream of making them a real family.
There are a few things holding him back, not the least his ex-wife Lauren. Just when he’s on the verge of asking Jenna to move in, Lauren turns up. To say she has ill intentions would be an understatement. I’m not always a fan of making a female character the complete villain in the story and there was some dimensionality to Lauren, but not much. She is a truly vile woman who doesn’t care who she hurt. Her indifference to Sara hurt my heart. I’m not a mother, but I like to believe most women love their children. That she’d left when Sara was infant was probably a good hint that the maternal gene passed her over.
This book is a chance to also catch up on other couples. Lucas and Shannon play a big role in this book. Shannon is Isaac’s younger sister and Lucas is Lauren’s brother. He’s a good guy, but wants nothing to do with his sister’s manipulations of those around him. We also see Jenna’s brother Eli and his girlfriend Ginger. Eli had his redemption in the last story and his gift to Jenna shows how much he’s grown as a man.
I love the town of Rivers End. I grew up in a town much like it and remember clearly how close-knit the community really was. I miss that sometimes, although having people always up in your business isn’t always great. But there are times when those close to you can rally around you. Isaac’s employee Teri and her son Max benefit from having those around them who care.
Suzanne T. Fortin narrated this book along with most of the other books in the series and she’s a great choice. This book is set in a small Canadian town and her lack of distinctive accent works well for these books. I’ve enjoyed my time with these characters and there are more books that I’ll be diving into.
4.0 out of 5 stars🎀Happy finish to wrap up a cute, romantic set of ❄⛄ holiday novellas😊

👍💕👪 Cute, quick novella with mild heat and a nice touch of adversity mixed with frustration leading to the Wedding Bells of the title. I was not expecting a return romance for hotelier Isaac and his web designing girlfriend Jenna after they ended starry-eyed and a couple in Silver Bells, the first book in this novella series, but their new troubles and efforts to resolve them made for a good, enjoyable story. A persistent blast from Isaac's past causes headaches when he thought only lovely romance and blue skies were in the forecast. The story's short format did not leave me worrying about the setbacks for too long and the ending happy union is short but sweet. Little Sara, Isaac's six-year-old, has been an important character throughout the series and remains as precious and bubbly as ever😇.
This and the other three preceding stories left me with a happy sigh. Nice!😊
I read a complimentary copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

C.J. Hunt seems to know how to weave a small town romance with all its ups and downs really well and the Rivers End books with there Holiday them are a great read before the Holidays or even during them. In this book you get to follow up with Isaac and Jenna which first appeared in the book Silver bells. And for anyone who picks this book up first instead of reading them in order you get to catch up on all the happenings and the characters but there are some spoilers about the other couples so you can read it as a stand alone but if your like me you like to start from the beginning and read them in order.
Isaac has a six year old daughter Sara and he runs the Big River Lodge after the break up of his first marriage 5yrs. Earlier hes ready to move on after his ex Lauren left him and his daughter. Isaac has been dating Jenna for a year and there just starting to make planes for a future hes past comes rolling back into town Lauren she seems very self serving and not worried about consequences of her actions and how they will affect people. Jenna will have to decide weather she wants to keep Isaac or move on Isaac will have to decide how much he wants to move forward and stop living in the past. This will bring plant of drama and heartache. I dont want to give away any spoilers so read the book. I was allowed to read and advance copy of this book and this is my honest review.
