It's a cold May in Acorn Hill. Jane is putting pansies in the front garden for a splash of spring cheer when a big pink Cadillac parks in front of the inn. Out jumps Belle from Georgia looking for a room. Within minutes, she divulges the reason for her trip. "God gave me a dream that I would meet the man I am meant to marry right here in Acorn Hill. We will be married the first weekend of June." Who will it be?

I didn't find Pastor Ken annoying with his visits, tho Aunt & the mayor have certainly perfected the technique of knowing when there's food ready to be served! Belle was ditzy, nice, annoying, charming, determined all rolled into one. It was an interesting story, but I found the other 3 books of the series to be more believable. We never did learn where Belle got all the money she was spending, and I find her 'discovery' of her groom to be a bit of a stretch.....still, I have & will recommend the entire series to others.
Prolific author Melody Carlson proves that authors can keep delivering captivating stories, even as they near their 100th book. In Ready to Wed, she has created a town that is a character in itself. It seems to come alive and welcome you in. All the characters are memorable, from the Howard sisters to their strong-willed Auntie to their pastor, Kenneth, who has perfected Popping In 101a prerequisite class in Seminary. Belle Bannister drives in town in a pink convertible to find the husband God showed her in a dream. Her stay at the Inn gets the sisters reluctantly involved in Belle's quest when their Auntie Ethel becomes infatuated with the idea of a wedding. The manhunt is on and while the sisters like sweet Belle, they pity the town's bachelors.From the moment Auntie berates Jane on page one for wearing old gardening clothes and Crocs in publiceven if that public is her own gardenyou'll be enchanted by Acorn Hill and its inhabitants. Caring, warm and a bit whacky all define the characters that flow from Carlson's pen. If you were raised in a small town, you'll be nostalgic recognizing old neighbors. If you're a city dweller, you may find yourself longing for life in Acorn Hill. Whichever you are, you'll not come away untouched by this warm story of friendship and faith. I'm looking forward to the next books in this series. Ready to Wed receives a high recommendation.
