The Unintended Groom



A Perfect Partnership

When Abby Bowen's dream of love is dashed, she pursues a new dream: opening a dinner theater in Hot Mineral Springs, Colorado. There's just one hitch: she needs a male business partner. The handsome father of twins who answers Abby's ad is perfect…perhaps too perfect. Working with someone like Harrison Kingsley—without losing her heart—will be harder than Abby anticipated.  It's a good thing Harrison's arrangement with Abby is strictly business. Because with her kind soul, smiling blue eyes and gentle way with his boys, he could easily fall for her. But the longer he works with Abby, the more Harrison realizes that the Lord might have an entirely different partnership planned for them.

My Review:

Another Bowen sibling meets her match in this delightful historical romance. No worries about reading the other books in this series though. The Unintended Groom is a great story all unto itself.

Abby is one spunky, scrappy heroine -- pure Bowen right down to her toes. She is prepared to take on the town politicians in order to make her dream come true, even if that means she needs a male business partner to do it. Cue the hero, one hunky Harrison Kingsley and his adorable twin boys. Abby doesn't stand a chance. Neither does Harrison. But the pair sure make a valiant effort to resist the palpable attraction. Ullrick's trademark humour carries this story to a satisfying conclusion.

  2. Dear Kav,
    Thanks for entering me in the giveaway for the book, "The Unintended Groom".
    Janet E.

  3. Your welcome, Janet. Good luck!

  4. Interesting plot... sounds like it's inevitable they fall in love! I enjoy the Love Inspired books because I can always count on a happy ending, and I don't mind predictability, as long as the story is interesting along the way :)


  5. I love a series of stories that you have to read one right after the other, though I will often wait till more then 1 or 2 have come out, but I also love stories like this one. A book connected within a series, yet you can read it by itself. Would love to win this one and then read the others too.

  6. I love happy endings too, Heidi. And I'm always amazed at how different authors can approach a common theme with a fresh perspective. You'll enjoy this one, I'm sure! Good luck!

    I agree, Becky. While I enjoy some continuous series I am a stickler about having some closure in each book . If a series has to be read like an entire book I'll wait until it's all out -- or more than likely forget all about it by then. :-) So many books so little time! Good luck!

  7. I haven't read any of Debra's books. This one sounds like a fun read for summer. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.


  8. I have enjoyed the books I have read by Debra. Please count me in.
