The Accidental Bride by Denise Hunter

This was one of those "accidental" finds.  I was just finishing a shift at a library and realized I had a couple of hours in between when I got off and when I had to go back to work.  I wanted something to read to pass the time and as I was pulling a hold for someone else, this title caught my eye.  My hope was it would be a fun romance to just sit back relax and read.  I have read a couple of Denise Hunter's books before, and have always thought them to be a great vacation read, this one didn't disappoint!

Shay Brandenberger is living in Moose Creek, Montana raising her daughter alone on her family inherited ranch.  Her biggest problem is the bank, and the fact that they are threatening to foreclose any day.  She's been praying for a miracle.  The only problem is sometimes miracles don't always show themselves as such, sometimes they are disguised in what you think couldn't be more wrong and it's going to take more than just a little faith to get through them.

Fourteen years ago a young Travis McCoy left Shay standing on the steps on her way to the alter.  After spending years in the rodeo circuit fulfilling most of his dreams, he is finally ready to leave it all behind and head back to Montana to see if there is any chance of a future left for him there.  Not just any future, but a future with the one woman who he wronged and made the biggest mistake of his life with a brash decision that has haunted him since.

With a Founder's Day wedding reenactment Shay agreed to do, that was until she realized the man she would be reenacting with is none other than her high school sweetheart Travis McCoy.  The man who broke her heart, left her to discover his own fame and fortune.
After the reenactment is over, Shay has no intention of ever seeing Travis again.  But that is before a busy body neighbor friend got involved, and a preacher who wasn't paying attention to what he was doing.  What happened, the wedding was real and Shay finds herself screaming annulment.

The only problem is, Travis has a proposal of his own, one that Shay can't turn down.  Before long she finds herself in an accidental marriage, that is either going to be the best or worst thing to ever happen to her and her daughter.

If you're looking for a fun summer read, I highly recommend The Accidental Bride by Denise Hunter. The book has Christian based values and faith references.  It's a fun romantic western that will have you cheering for love and crazy accidents:)  Not to mention it's set in the beautiful Montana mountains right up against the Yellowstone River.

  3. I don't read much unless I'm traveling. I was once hooked on Luanne Rice. I found her books to be easy reads but have really good characters. I'll keep this one in mind. I'll be on a trip soon.
