Bride Wanted by Renee Andrews

Mass Market Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Love Inspired (July 23, 2013)
Language: English
Dear Bride-To-Be... Troy Lee has been writing letters to his future bride since he was a boy. Still, she's never been more than words on a page...until now. When he meets Destiny Porter, he thinks he may have finally found the woman he's been waiting for. But Destiny came to Claremont with a single purpose-to get Troy's permission to print his letters in her magazine. Yet once she lays eyes on the handsome Southern man, Destiny knows she's in trouble. She can't help dreaming about being Troy's bride. But will he still want to be her groom when he finds out who she really is?

Sometimes a girl just wants to sit down with a sweet romance and relax.  That is what the Love Inspired line from Harlequin is for me.  When I want to escape for a bit and not have to think to hard about what I'm reading, this is where I head.  I know the Love Inspired line will keep it clean which I also appreciate.

Bride Wanted has all the typical elements that make up a great love story.  Interest, attraction, doubt, misunderstanding, heartache and reconciliation.  

Troy is a true southern gentleman and he knows what he is looking for in a woman.  He just hasn't met her yet.  I loved how patient and loyal Troy is to his family, especially his meddling mother and grandmother.  He is a kind man with a good heart.

This is an Inspirational Romance so there are Christian themes (church, scripture and praying).

You really get a small southern hometown feel in this book.  It almost make it sound idyllic.  I loved getting a mental picture in my mind of the town square with all the shops and decorations for the celebrations.  I think this would make a cute Hallmark film.  :)  

Overall a sweet romance that I enjoyed a lot.  A great diversion and an easy read.

You can pick Bride Wanted up at Amazon.  The mass market paperback is under $6 and the kindle version is $4.99.
