Anyone who had a rough time in high school, you will no doubt relate to Mac. She was considered a geek in high school. And once she returned to her hometown years later, to take care of her father, she couldn't help but be reminded of all the embarrassing memories that high school had for her. And she couldn't help but constantly be reminded of it since her father is the high school football coach... great story!

I thought this was a fun, cute story. Mac is back in her small town to take care of her father after a heart attack, but she doesn't plan to stay there. Then, her editor asks her to cover the wedding of the girl who made Mac's high school life miserable... which also means spending time with the bride's older brother, and Mac's first crush Ethan. I will say, the only thing I didn't like was how Mac held this grudge against Ethan for ten years about something he didn't even realize he did. And then when we find out what it is, and the reason for it, it ends up not actually being a big deal. Definitely not worth ten years. Like, come on, grow up. It was high school, you were teenagers, teenagers are dumb. Anyway, other than that, I liked this story and the surprising little turns that made it deeper and more than just about the budding romance between Mac and Ethan. Hollis has changed, Ethan has changed, and I love how Mac got to get to know them all over again. This was a cute, fun little story and one that I really enjoyed.

I always enjoy Kathryn Springer's stories since she has a way of making her characters realistic and easy to connect with. Mac has conflicting emotions as she reunites with her unrequited love and it was fun to see Ethan's instant attraction to her. She doesn't make it easy for him, but a new level of friendship naturally occurs as they work together to give Hollis the quiet wedding she wants while still providing a story for Mac to report. Mac's new dilemma is whether or not to hang around the small town to be with Ethan or move on to a bigger city and focus on her career. A great addition to the Year of Weddings novella line!

Mac, Mackenzie Davis, is back. She returned to Red Leaf last year to take care of her father and still hasn’t escaped yet. As the only child of everyone’s favorite widowed coach Mac wasn’t raised in a traditional way. Now, years later everyone treats her like she’s still the coach’s daughter tagging along. But being back brings painful memories. Like a lack of friends and her first crush, Ethan Channing. The same Ethan Channing that has just arrived in Red Leaf after disappearing ten years ago. He’s looking to because the person his father would have wanted him to be. If he can remember who that is. Hott Review: I LOVED Love on a Deadline! It’s a very romantic novel. I loved how Ethan and Mac both allowed God to change them and give them the gifts their hearts had been seeking. Though the romance itself is a bit rushed it’s not something that’s uncomfortable or weird. They do have a deadline, after all. :) More… Source: NetGalley Genre: Contemprary Christian Romance ISBN: 9780310396048 Pages: 119 Grade: A Ages: 16+ Steam: Nada Setting: Red Leaf, Wisconsin Series: A Year of Weddings Set 2, novella 9

When I tried, and disliked, a few books in this second series of wedding novellas, I decided to stick with authors I already knew and loved. Kathryn Spring has placed herself firmly in this category with her full length novel The Dandelion Field and her novella The September Bride in the first Year of Weddings Series. Now Love On A Deadline confirms her ability to write loveable characters in charming settings, all tied up with a writing style that flows beautifully and makes for an enjoyable read. After reading some pretty heavy books recently this was the perfect reprieve, light and fun and sweetly romantic. Mac has returned to Red Leaf to care for her ailing father. Working as a journalist for the local newspaper, she is frustrated to be handed social events to cover instead of the serious stories she longs to investigate. Her latest task is to report on the upcoming wedding of returning local Hollis Channing who is marrying her celebrity fiancé. The only problem is that Mac has plenty of history with Hollis and her brother, Ethan Channing, and not much of it is anything Mac wants to relive any time soon. By the first chapter I was intrigued by the history between Ethan and Mac, and before too long the flame Mac held for Ethan all those years ago is determined to splutter back to life. The difference, this time around, is that Ethan might actually notice her. The only problem I had with this book was the ending seemed a little rushed, but this is a novella, so one can only expect that. I would have loved more of this story, and Hollis and her fiancé have their own intriguing love story that I would have loved to read more about. Nevertheless, there was a nice balance between details and a simple plot line that suited the length of the book. The standout was the great characters and sweet romance that rekindles between Mac and Ethan. This was a fun and quick read. I can't wait to read whatever Kathryn Springer writes next. The publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have enjoyed quite a few of these Year of Weddings novellas that have released in the past two years. There are a handful that have become favorite stories, and this is definitely one of them. The author did a great job of creating two main characters that I connected with immediately upon meeting them in the story. The fact that they knew each other in high school and the whole back story involving the way Mac was treated in high school tugged at my heart. The chemistry between Mac and Ethan was just perfect and the additional love story between Hollis and Connor added even more depth to the story. The truth that people can change over time was another nice theme in the book. I would have loved for this book to go on even a little bit longer, maybe with an epilogue for the happy couple. However, I was still very happy with the happily-ever-after that I came away with. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Love on a Deadline, written by Kathryn Springer, is the latest in the Year of Weddings novella series. MacKenzie “Mac” Davis left her small hometown to see the world outside. After her father experiences a heart attack, she quickly returns home to look after him. She is able to take advantage of her journalism degree when she gets a job working at the weekly newspaper. You will be as surprised as she is when her latest assignment brings her face-to-face with her high school crush! Ethan Channing has come back to town to help his sister, Hollis, quietly work on planning her wedding to a famous celebrity. This is just the type of story Mac's boss wants covered. Mac, living next door to the Channing's "mansion" on the lake, is just the person with the ability to get an inside scoop on this story! Mac cannot believe how much has changed will both Hollis, her high-school nemesis, and Ethan, her high school crush. Watch and see how this tale turns out differently than Mac could have ever imagined! I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review

Love on a Deadline is a novella in The Year of Wedding series. If you are new to the series, 2014 was a year of brides, 2015 is a year of people who orchestrate weddings for others getting to find their own love story. Mac is the daughter of a beloved coach in their small town of Red Leaf, Wisconsin. Her dad raised her after her mom passed away so she is a little bit of a tom boy. She left home to purse a degree in journalism and the story opens after she has returned to help her dad after he suffered a mild heart attack. She is working at the local paper covering small town social events like the garden club’s flower show. She yearns to capture the big serious story that will get her the attention of a big newspaper for when she can leave Red Leaf. Her editor has now asked her to cover the big wedding of Hollis Channin who happens to be the sister of Ethan, the boy she had a crush on all through high school. Hollis who was her nemesis in high school, is marrying a celebrity so it has the potential to be a big story. It also has the potential to reconnect her with Ethan. Ethan was endearing. When they watch the old sports videos I was cracking up visualizing her in the mascot costume. Love on a Deadline is a cute story of two people reconnecting after high school. I also enjoyed the small side story with Hollis and her fiancé.
