The Bride Next Door (Texas Grooms #2) by Winnie Griggs
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 Review: The Bride Next Door
Today I have read all three of the Texas Grooms books that are out. I enjoyed each one that I had to read all three today. Of course I read #3 A Family for Christmas first today. Then reread Handpicked Husband #1. Then finished up with The Bride Next Door #2.
I would suggest reading them in the right order is best but they all are good by themselves. I would start the next one but it is not out yet.
The Bride Next Door is sweet, tender and I laughed too. It is a clean read.
The plot is Daisy moves into Turnabout at night and moves into her building that has been closed up and is filthy. She is not afraid of hard work to make her dream come true. She is a positive person and so cheerful. She wants to open a restaurant and settle down with roots.
Everett owns the newspaper next door and lives about it. He wants to get back to the city and working for a big newspaper again. He is a very uptight man. Fussy about just looking and keeping clean.
Everett hires Daisy to cook for him and he will provide the food a little pay. That way he makes sure Daisy has food to eat to.
I really like Daisy's character and how happy positive person she is. Everett has some good qualities too. Another character we meet in this book is Abigail. I like her idea of starting a lending library. You want to have everything workout for these characters and see what happens next in their lives.
The Setting is Turnabout, Texas April 1895
I am waiting for the next book to come out. I will read it.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it in return by Netgalley and Harlequin.
