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.
The concept and/or the basis of the plot is what made "Almost a Bride" an outstanding romance novel. There really is no "bad guy" or "villain" in the story. In fact, the heroes are also the anti-heroes. That concept is hard to achieve in literary fiction. And it is harder to achieve in a romance novel because of the expected HEA. Hence, the author, Patricia McLinn had to put the angst on a romantic slant instead of the philosophical slant. In short, think of Hamlet's soliloquy "to be or not to be" as a sonnet. Hard to imagine, right? Harder to write, if you ask me.
Great story, great editing and great concept. Five stars all the way.
She asks him to marry her as a business proposition so she can get the grant, but she never considered the consequences of living in a small town or of sharing a house with someone she used to love. This book revolves around the push and pull of their relationship. Both characters need to learn to figure out what they want and what they need for their own wellbeing.
I wish there was more description of ranch living and what makes it unique, as well as more about what makes living in Wyoming unique.
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 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.
Matty Brennan is back in Wyoming and she's desperately trying to save her family ranch. She will do anything... including asking Dave Currick to marry her, even though he broke her heart six years ago... just so she can get an address change, and use that to apply for a water grant to save her ranch. And yes, it will be a loveless marriage of convenience, including the full pre-nup. But Dave had never said no to Matty... even though it was Matty that refused help. Dave accepts that this is a loveless marriage, but when "You may kiss the bride" was ordered... He made sure he put his heart into it... now if only Matty will reciprocate...
The problem with this book is a frequent problem with romance... The characters are supposed to be adults, but their thought process seems to be still of randy teenagers. One look from him and her heart stuttered and her tongue refused to form words. One look from her and his... blood went southward. You get the idea. On the other hand, the other push-pull between the characters, such as teasing banter and the indignation that followed were fun to read. Overall, I guess I liked the book enough.
