Forced together, but find love along with a mystery and a ghost
Blackmail and the Bride - Sahara Kelly

This is toward the end of the series, but you do not have to read the series to read this one. Cressida is running from scandal, and Richard is forced to pay a debt. With no options, they come together. They made a great couple despite their histories. There is a mystery, a ghost, lots of family, and love that made this a wonderful story to read. The two of them work well together, and I enjoyed them very much.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

The Twenty-Four-Hour Bride - Day Leclaire

I suppose it was meant to be cute/sweet but honestly, the security system, the H, the h's parents... all conspired to make me wonder about the h's intelligence for remaining where she was after the death of her husband. Or, for that matter, remaining where she did when she realized her husband was a schmuck. I mean; why stay married to a guy who doesn't care? Oh. Right. Her *family*.

 

I actually checked the date on this to see when it was written - the family pressuring her to marry, etc., just seemed so dated.

 

I'm not touching on the H's parents - the absentminded geniuses who apparently left their brilliant son to his own devices. Yeah right, ok. I'm trying to figure out how it was that he wasn't included on their projects - an untapped mind and all that. Seems more likely they'd have put him to work instead of forgetting he was around.

A satisfying read
The Patchwork Bride - Sandra Dallas
THE PATCHWORK BRIDE by Sandra Dallas
Dallas writes characters especially well. They live and breathe as naturally as you and I. In this book , a modern young woman is a runaway bride, unsure of her love and commitment. The woman she runs to tells her the story of a turn of the century runaway bride – one who runs three times!
This story within a story is the “real” story of this book.The tension grows as the young woman falls in love (or like) and then is disillusioned each time. We watch her character change while she grows in maturity as heartache after heartache consumes her. Each time she (and we) learn a bit more about her character, her needs, the time she lives in and the men she chooses, or who choose her. The modern runaway learns as well.
The middle of the book drags a bit, but stick with the story. There is a surprising twist near the end. The opportunities open to women and the strictures they live under are presented with sympathy for the characters, the place and the time.
This is not Dallas’s best, but it is a satisfying read. You will be glad you stuck with it.
4 of 5 stars
