What a fun book to read!!!
To be honest, I didn’t even realize that this was Denise’s next book after A Cowboys Touch, but I was THRILLED when a little ways into the book I started recognizing some names and storylines.
The Accidental Bride is an adorable story of an ‘unexpected’ marriage that turns out to be a blessing in disguise.
Shay Bradenberger has seen difficult times in her life. Let alone having some of them played out in the eyesight of the whole town, but to be ‘accidentally’ married to the same man that left her at the alter.. well that just seemed to much to take.
Denise Hunter has done a wonderful job weaving together a story that will make you laugh out loud and keep you turning the pages.

Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

Shay Brandenberger has built her entire life on the shifting sands of what others think. Constantly seeking the approval of others, she has struggled through a rocky childhood, a failed marriage and single parenthood. Now it looks like she’s losing the ranch that has been in her family for three generations, a surefire way to mark her as a failure in the eyes of the community. When Travis McCoy, the high school sweetheart who very publicly broke her heart fifteen years before, returns to Moose Creek, she is less than pleased. Not only does his re-appearance dredge up a deluge of painful memories, it also reminds everyone in town that it was he who left her, not the other way around. To make matters worse, Shay and Travis are unwittingly paired to play bride and groom in the annual Founder’s Day wedding re-enactment where, much to her chagrin, she discovers he still has the power to take her breath away.
