Reviews for Accidental Bride
Booklist Reviews 2011 December #1
Acclaimed inspirational-fiction author Hunter (A Cowboy's Touch, 2011) delivers gentle romance set in Montana in the second installment in her Big Sky Romance series. Single mother Shay Brandenberger has done everything she can think of to try and hold on to the reins of her runaway life. But her endurance threatens to give way when doing a favor at the Founder's Day festivities forces her to confront the one man who can simultaneously satisfy and break her heart: her ex-boyfriend Travis. A fictional marriage ceremony becomes an accidental reality that pitches Shay and Travis into unusual circumstances that are guaranteed to change their lives forever. Audiences will find themselves holding out hope as Shay grapples with events that are either an awkward coincidence or the divine will of God. An expert in the inspirational-romance genre and western culture, Hunter once again crafts characters who will please readers who admire the resilient women and men of the ranching industry.

Life has have never been easy for divorcée Shay Brandenberger. Still, she has done an amazing job raising her daughter alone. When the bank threatens to foreclose on her ranch, she prays for a miracle, but sometimes these come from the unlikeliest places. Agreeing to play the role of the bride in the Moose Creek Founders Day wedding reenactment, Shay doesn't realize that the groom is played by Travis McCoy, her high school love who broke her heart when he left home to become a rodeo star. Through a series of mishaps, the phony wedding turns out to be legal. Shay wants nothing more than to end the humiliation but staying married may save her home. VERDICT Hunter's second cozy, gentle series romance (after A Cowboy's Touch) should appeal to fans of Lori Wick and Tracie Peterson. [Page 62]. (c) Copyright 2011.
