Book Description

If Meg O’Malley could play pretend fiancée to any man on the planet, there’s no question she’d choose Zach Addison. She had a huge crush on him back in high school, though he barely noticed her. To this day, she still compares every man she dates to him. So how could she refuse when her identical twin, Liza, asks Meg to take her place in a fake engagement to Zach (even if Meg is already practically engaged to someone else)?

Zach only “proposed” to his friend Liza in order to please his ailing grandmother during her final days. In reality, his heart is still healing from a nasty divorce. But the longer he pretends at romance, the more he finds himself really falling in love. The problem is, Zach doesn’t know he’s actually head over heels for Meg. And having been burned by a bride once before (his ex said she loved him but really just loved his money), Zach may commit to permanent bachelorhood when he learns he’s been duped again.

Sweet and heartfelt, Bride by Mistake is a smart, romantic comedy that finds out whether two wrongs can make a right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many words for too little plot February 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I felt the idea behind the plot was fun, but the execution was poor. Both characters spend too much time stewing and take too long to move forward. The story and internal monologue was repetitive and I didn't find the characters to be very believable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy Romance!!! February 13, 2013
Format:Paperback
I recently received a request from author Marilyn Shank to review her new book, Bride by Mistake, which was released January 8th, 2013. As you all know, I am all about covers and needless to say, I fell in love with the cover after looking it up. Something about the cover screamed shabby and chic so a took on the request for the review and I'm very glad I did!

Bride by Mistake has to be one of the cutest comedy-romance books I have read in a long time. My only complaint is that there isn't a movie in the making!

...Think something along the lines of Wedding Planner, How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days, or one of the other awesome chick flicks out there.

Just when you think Meg is about to give in, Liza finds some way to hold her out for one more day. Meanwhile, Meg is falling in love with her high school crush who practically failed to realized she even existed back then. But, what happens when he finds out the truth about the girl he fell in love. What happens he realized he has been betrayed by not only his best friend, but the woman he thought he fell in love with. Well, I won't spoil the party but - be prepared- this one is a tear jerker!

Bride by Mistake was not only charming and witty, but also a great comical romance that will leave you wanting more! Luckily, when author Marilyn Shank sent me Bride by Mistake she also sent Daddy With a Deadline to review and now I will be able to read more of her awesome work shortly.

All and all, if you are looking for a great comical romance that is rather short, but yet long enough to enjoy, consider Bride by Mistake by Marilyn Shank.You will be glad you did!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but short July 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this on loan from Amazon and it was light and entertaining, just as I was hoping. However, if you are paying for it you should know it's much more of a novella than a full length novel.

It's a nice romantic comedy, very little steam.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and unbelievable February 6, 2014
By Jen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, there is no way he is going to forgive her her in less than 24 hours for all the lies. It took over a year for his ex-wife.

How do you like to read a book when it is nothing but lies. How do you fall in love with some one based on lies.

I hated Liz for all her lies and hated meg because I found her so stupid and a cheater. I can't get past all the lies, found the story stupid not romantic at all.
The book was a waste of money and a waste of time.

Simple reading. Younger audience appeal. Good clean literature. Cute story but the reader can anticipate the ending from the first page. Sweet though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Held my interest November 20, 2013
By cori
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty good writing; good plot with interesting turns even though both the basic plot and it's working out are pretty standard. I liked the characters. The book wasn't written to give them a lot of depth, but they were fun anyway.
