If you don't need the above mentioned features in your novels and if you want to read something juvenile, something asinine, something trivial, something that could take place anywhere where there's a bed or a floor, or a couch, or a chair and 2 uncontrollably overly sexual, overactive adults, then this is your book.
I bought this book because I was born and raised in Wyoming and I had high hopes there would be scenic vistas, ranch life, livestock, Indian Paintbrush, real characters with depth, real action, a plot devise, and traces of a wonderful life growing up in Wyoming, a novel with a twisted plot and some humor--as promised--and I was duped! This novel by McLinn does not deliver and unfortunately I bought 2 of her books. Since I don't need sweating adults who can't keep their clothes on and spend their entire life either between the sheets or attempting to get there, I won't be reading any more of this tripe. This is nothing more than a 10 cent romance novel that can be found in any supermarket and read by women who have nothing going for them, but fantasy. I wish Amazon would put this "novel" in the right section so as not to deceive the reading audience.
Save your money...save yourself!!! Run, run fast, run far, but runaway....... This book is for juveniles.
SOMEWHAT SPOILERY BELOW
This book also falls prey to one of the more annoying trends I've seen in literature and film of late: the belief that the man is always in the wrong and that if he does anything that qualifies as "saving" the woman then he's insulting her, and he's an awful human being for doing it. Is there parts where he is in the wrong? Yes, and yet those parts rarely get addressed and are glossed over so easily. Yet this was not one of those times. Now, in some cases this can be written well, but in this book when the female main got all upset over this I wanted to strangle her as she wasn't the only one who'd pay if caught in what she'd done so what he did was smart — reasons aside. Then to redeem himself, and so that she would not leave him, the male main let her handle a situation that he should not have cause in a realistic situation(let me just say the outcome here is not even slightly so) she'd have made him lose his license as a lawyer. Instead, in order to show that she had changed and was far more worldly like she kept claiming, she should've actually let him handle the matter as he was more experienced in this case. What makes this even worse is that he put all the blame on himself which is part of this trend that I grow to hate cause it has little to do with portraying strong, equal women.
I enjoyed the book enough to finish it, but struggled with wondering if it were an older book republished and buffed up. Conversations were very archaic in spots, really confusing when the mother (seriously) queries if they engage in some "dancing cheek to cheek" after watching an old Fred Astair- Ginger Rogers movie. I know some people are old movie buffs, but it's just a lot.
Can't recommend or not recommend. Alright to try a new author for free.
Not only Dave and Matty were three-dimensional; the other characters in the story had well-developed personalities, too. The imagery was wonderful and it was very easy for me to immerse myself in the book. The writing style was smooth and flowed easily from beginning to end. Even though this book is the first in a trilogy, it did not have a cliff-hanger ending, thank goodness. (I absolutely hate cliff-hangers!)
I would happily recommend ALMOST A BRIDE to anyone who wants to settle in and enjoy a great love story.
Matty has to marry him, it's her only option. Her long lost friend Dave and he's a lawyer. She hopes to save her ranch that other in the family had just about bankrupt.
She needs to get the grant-that would turn the ranch around. It's only going to be a temporary arrangement...
Indian Paintbrush, what a bond! He doesn't think she will go through with it...
It all came down to where he lived, the county... he's not so happy when he finds out...
Like how the family welcomes her and the projects that bring the ranch money-interesting.
Lots of action, adventure and steamy sex scenes.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

I still cannot get to grips and am confused/ irritated with her motives at the end of the book whilst having much sympathy with Dave.
Six years previously they had been madly in love until something said made Matty depart. Now Matty has returned to to the ranch she has inherited. After ignoring Dave she suddenly asks him to marry him, but will not give the reason.
A flimsy plot so will probably decline to read another by this author.
Matty and Dave, childhood sweethearts that everybody said would end up together, the only thing is it took six whole years of growing up before their happy ending.
The Author had an easy and flowing style, so much so, that I completely forgot the fact that it was peppered with North American English.
With no mistakes, or bug bears, it was a nice entertaining 4 star read.
It would be a perfect beach read, or something to while away a journey if contemporary romance is your thing.
