I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

An Unexpected Bride

An Unexpected Bride - Shadonna Richards This was a cute read. It had it's charming moments and I found it was very easy to read. I was able to read it in one sitting. While I never really connected with Emma, I found myself hoping for the best for her.

I had hoped for more in the beginning and ending of this book, but I really liked the journey. I thought that Emma and Evan got a chance to shine a bit more and we got the chance to get to know who they are. Watching Emma care for her grandpa in the his final days was a bit of a tear jerker, but I wasn't sold on how it lead to the fake engagement. But after, the struggle the characters had in dealing with it, made up for it.

The ending was abrupt. It didn't feel like that was how it should have ended, either. There were a few lingering questions at the end that I had hoped to resolve. There were bits that felt out of place. Like Emma's mom, it was such a short mention and it added drama that I would have liked to see played out instead of going nowhere. But, other than those, I liked the book. It's a leisurely read.
