[Pat's Review]: "Daring Bride"

Daring Bride by Ava Miles
Publisher: Ava Miles Inc. (June 17, 2015)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Your favorite Dare Valley characters have survived betrayal, secrets, and tragedy to find true love. Now, watch each of these daring brides walk down the aisle to their happily ever after with the man of their dreams. You know, the hero who fires up all their engines. And, of course, the town of Dare Valley comes out to throw these fabulous couples quite a party.

From NORA ROBERTS LAND, Meredith Hale and her own hero, Tanner McBride, embark upon the journey into their new life, Marriage Land. See what makes Meredith’s wedding day so daring, and meet Tanner’s best man, international news correspondent Asher Harrington. Then, there’s Grandpa Hale’s priceless advice about what makes a long-lasting marriage.

Jill Hale from FRENCH ROAST has wanted to marry Brian McConnell since she wore pig tails in grade school. Brian has come around—finally. Sure, she got pregnant before they tied the knot, but it doesn’t matter because they’re going to live happily ever after. Find out what makes Jill a daring bride besides her wish to rent a pink circus tent for the wedding reception.

Peggy McBride from THE GRAND OPENING never imagined getting married again, especially to hotel magnate and poker champion, Mac Maven. See what Mac gives her to make their wedding day daring, and watch as her cute-as-a-button son binds their new family together in the most adorable way ever.

Abbie Maven from THE HOLIDAY SERENADE resisted her love for bad-boy Rhett Butler Blaylock, not only because he’s a poker player, but also because that Southerner knows how to start a ruckus wherever he goes. Now, it’s their wedding day, and Rhett’s friends from Dare River show up as well as his mama, Eugenia Lynn, and his cousin, Charleston. Of course, a ruckus breaks out, making Abbie feel more than a little daring, but it’s all in good fun and makes this couple’s wedding the most memorable one in Dare Valley for some time.

Pat's Review:

This is a short novel filled with love and beautiful weddings. Some of our favorite residents of Dare Valley are getting their Happily Ever After.  Each wedding is different and they will bring smiles to your faces and even an occasional tear. The brides vary from Peggy, a tough police officer in Dare Valley, marrying the owner of The Grand Hotel in what she hoped would be a simple ceremony. Mac is the love of her life, but she would have been happy to get married in Las Vegas.

For me the most touching was Jill and Brian. Best friends and lovers in high school, Brian took off for the big city for his training as a chef leaving Jill behind. Jill was devastated. Years later he returns to Dare Valley but can Jill trust him again? He convinces her he is worth the risk and not only are they finally getting married, they both are overjoyed because Jill is pregnant. The wedding is small, reception in the church basement, with a lot of homemade with love decorations. I definitely shed a tear reading this story,

This is a great book for sitting back and savoring every happy occasion. If you haven't read the Dare Valley Series, your missing some amazing love stories.
