I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

The Accidental Bride, A Big Sky Romance - Denise Hunter

Shay Brandenberger is living in Moose Creek, Montana trying to raise her daughter and keep her childhood ranch afloat.  She begrudgingly agrees to play the part of the bride in the Founder's Day wedding reenactment and is mortified to see that the groom across from her is her high school sweetheart Travis McCoy, who left her high and dry on the steps of the courthouse 14 years earlier. Suddenly the reenactment ends up becoming a legal marriage when a mistake with a marriage license occurs.  Travis comes up with a proposal that will save her ranch but may cost Shay her heart.  Can she learn to trust a man who once betrayed her? 

Shay struggles with trusting Travis with her heart after he abandoned her 14 years prior.  She also carries burdens from her childhood that she is inadvertently passing on to her daughter.  Travis struggles with trying to prove to Shay that he truly loves her and will not abandon her.  One of the main themes through the book is the question of whether you are trying to please God or please man and the effects that that answer has on your life and the lives of those surrounding you.   Denise Hunter weaves these elements seamlessly throughout the book.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely read more of  her Big Sky Romances.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by Thomas Nelson via the  B&B Media Group in exchange for my fair and honest review.
