About the book:
Love Thy Neighbor?

After years of wandering, Daisy Johnson hopes to settle in Turnabout, Texas, open a restaurant, perhaps find a husband. Of course, she'd envisioned a man who actually likes her. Not someone who offers a marriage of convenience to avoid scandal.

Turnabout is just a temporary stop for newspaper reporter Everett Fulton. Thanks to one pesky connecting door and a local gossip, he's suddenly married, but his dreams of leaving haven't changed. What Daisy wants—home, family, tenderness—he can't provide. Yet big-city plans are starting to pale beside small-town warmth….

My thoughts:


The Bride Next Door was an easy read with good characters and a nice story. I did find it a little frustrating how the teaser scene (at the front of the book) didn't happen until well over halfway through the story. I did like the ending and how things turned out. Parts of the romance story were really sweet, which was nice.

All in all, a good historical romance. I enjoyed it.

  1. You know sometimes, the LIH monthly titles are better than others. I read this one. I don't remember it, so it probably didn't leave too much of an impression.

    1. I agree -- some LIH books are better than others. I enjoyed this one, but didn't love it. Thanks for stopping by, Dawn! :)
