The Marriage Pact by Linda Lael Miller (The Brides of Bliss County #1)

The women of Bliss County are ready to meet the men of their dreams! See how it all begins in this enthralling new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller...

Ten years ago, Hadleigh Stevens was eighteen and this close to saying "I do," when Tripp Galloway interrupted her walk down the aisle. Now that she's recovered from her youthful mistake and Tripp's interference, Hadleigh and her single friends form a marriage pact. She doesn't expect Tripp to meddle with her new plan to find Mr. Right—or to discover that she's more attracted to him than ever!

Divorced and eager to reconnect with his cowboy roots, Tripp returns to Bliss County to save his ailing father's ranch. He's not looking for another wife—certainly not his best friend's little sister. But he's never been able to forget Hadleigh. And this time, if she ends up in his arms, he won't be walking away

My Review:The Marriage Pact by Linda Lael Miller (The Brides of Bliss County #1)

3 1/2 STARS

I wish it was a longer story, I wanted to see more of the characters interact with each other. This did give a lot of their backstory. At times the relationships seem rushed. I like the characters. Want to know more about them.
Had s few love scenes that I skipped over.

Three friends want to get married. So they decide to make a pact. Too keep trying, too support each other, get out their. There professional lives are going great but they know they want a family.

Hadleigh Stevens at eighteen was about to get married when Tripp Galloway came in the middle of the wedding and carried her off. He told her about her fiancé some information he knew, then he left town again.

Hadleigh had a crush on Tripp for years. He was her brother's good friend. Hadleigh owns the quilt shop in town and makes and sells quilts on line. She does a good business. She is all alone after all of her family has died.

Tripp has sold his business and has come home to the ranch. He finds his step-father in bad health and ranch worn down. He wants Hadleigh to be friends again.

I would have liked to see more of Tripp and his step-father Jim. It seems like Tripp gets home and Jim leaves. Then Jim starts a fast relationship. It just seems too rushed.

The setting is small town Mustang Creek, Wyoming.

I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
