For the first book in the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series, McDonough has crafted an engaging read, one made even more pleasant by her quirky characters.

Vickie McDonough possesses a unique voice, and in The Anonymous Bride she uses it to lure in, capture and claim her readers. You’ll want to read this one when you have a good chunk of time to do nothing more than that, because you won’t want to put it down. Filled with authentic detail relevant to the historical era of the storyline, this book is a must have! The author knows how to spin a tale, and she does it with flair and finesse in The Anonymous Bride. Great storytelling!
