Book Review: The Bride Blunder by Kelly Eileen Hake

Book Description:

One Name...

When Gavin Miller hires on to set up a gristmill for the prospering town of Buttonwood, Nebraska, he’s looking to build more than a business. For the first time, Gavin is in a position to request the hand of the woman he’s never forgotten; Miss Marguerite Chandler.

Divided Between Two Cousins,

When Marguerite’s cousin steps down from the stage, Gavin realizes the terrible blunder he’s made. While he never forgot Marguerite was the French word for Daisy, he’d failed to recall that the two cousins shared their grandmother’s name, and Marge was the nickname of the wrong Miss Marguerite Chandler!

Equals Big Trouble for Three Hearts!

Marge rejects his offer of marriage when she discovers the truth and goes about setting up a school in town. She’s found a place in Buttonwood, but just when Gavin’s beginning to think maybe Marge holds a place in his life, a distraught Daisy descends upon the town with a broken heart—and a broken engagement.

Can God’s will become clear even after The Bride Blunder?

My thoughts:
I have enjoyed the Prairie Promises Series by Kelly Eileen Hake and was excited to see The Bride Blunder at my library. I enjoyed the story of Gavin and Marge, but found the plot frustrating, which I did not experience in the first two books, The Bride Backfire and The Bride Bargain. Another character, Midge, who was in the previous books, is an important character in The Bride Blunder. So much so, her character and story were much more fascinating than Marge, Gavin and Daisy's. (When you read the book description you don't even read one word about her!) By the conclusion of the book it felt like the author was trying fit in every character's personal story. Overall, I have to admit everything ended nice and tidy, but not as quite as satisfactory as it could have been.

  1. I honestly didn't realize this was a second in a series. Thank you for the great and honest review.
