Finally a Bride by Renee Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Book Description: Seven years and two broken engagements haven't erased Garrett Mitchell from Molly Scott's mind. Her employer insists Molly and Garrett belong together. To appease the well-meaning matchmaker, the pair agrees to a pretend courtship. But too late, Molly finds herself falling for a man who might never trust her.
Garrett is a prominent Denver attorney now, not the naive seventeen-year-old who always felt second-best. Surely the string of suitors Molly's left behind only proves her fickleness. Does Garrett dare believe that she has only ever been waiting for him? The third engagement could be the charm, for his first—and only—love.
Charity House: Offering an oasis of hope, faith and love on the rugged Colorado frontier.
My thoughts: Molly has had heartbreak throughout her life. It began as a child, living in Charity House, and finding a family (her sister) to take her in. It came to a head seven years ago when Garrett chose to leave her and go to law school. He took her heart with him, and she has missed being whole since that day.
Now she has had two broken engagements behind her and is working for a wonderful older lady as her personal assistant. Garret is back in town, but avoiding her. The opportunity arises and her employer begins an operation to bring them back together.
This is a cute and lovely romance. The characters are fun to read about. They carry many hurt feelings and missed chances, but somehow it all works out. There are many references to their shared belief in God. This book's characters are strong in their Christian faith.
This book is squeaky clean. It is a romance that leaves you feeling good at the end and the hope that love can truly conquer all.
