The Accidental Bride by Denise Hunter
When a wedding reenactment turns real, this cowgirl suddenly finds she's an accidental bride.
Shay Brandenberger is raising her daughter in Moose Creek, Montana on her childhood ranch, nestled against the Yellowstone River. Despite her hard work, she can't seem to keep her head above water-and now the bank is threatening to foreclose. She prays for a miracle, but the answer she receives is anything but.
Having agreed to play the bride in the Founders Day wedding reenactment, Shay is mortified to be greeted at the end of the aisle by none other than Travis McCoy, her high school sweetheart-the man who left her high and dry for fame and fortune on the Texas rodeo circuit.
Then the unthinkable happens. Thanks to a well-meaning busy body and an absent minded preacher, the wedding reenactment results in a legal marriage. But before Shay can say "annulment," Travis comes up with a crazy proposal. If she refuses his offer, she'll lose her home. But if she accepts, she may lose her heart.
Shay isn't sure if the recent events are God's will or just a preacher's blunder. Will trusting her heart to the man who once shattered it be the worst mistake of her life? Or could their marriage be the best accident that ever happened?
I loved this one! The last thing Shay expects from the fake wedding ceremony is to wind up legally married! Especially to her one time love Travis! Either through a cruel twist of fate or God's Divine will, they are married and Travis has a proposal. Can she trust herself? Will she have enough faith in God to give her heart away again?
I loved all the characters in this book, especially the ones returning from the first book in the series. Shay is a strong woman who has been hurt too many times to ever trust a man again! Travis realizes how badly he messed up years before and wants another chance and it seems God may have given him just that. I loved Shay's daughter, she is so sweet and innocent but has a lot of the same problems Shay did growing up. All in all just a good romance!
I rate this a 5/5. It was a great romance that I plan to read again!
