    One thought on “An Unexpected Bride”

    1. The book was okay. The thing that bothered me the most was the description overload at times. I started to skip whole chunks of the text, because it was descriptions of the building or clothing or some reminiscing of some irrelevant past memory. I didn't know if she wanted to fill up space or if she thought knowing what color Emma's pants were accented with was really important. And of these descriptions, things could have been cut back and made tighter. Here's an example: "Evan flipped open his [...]

    2. Read this series and really enjoyed the stories. It was easy to see where the story was leading but still a good read and story line through out the book.My only suggestion would be to purchase the NOVEL of all the Brides Series in one book vs. purchasing each book sepeartly, I didnt realize this until I had already purchased 2 books seperatly. It would have saved a couple dollars.Would recommend this series and will check out other books by this author also.

    3. Desperate to please her ill Grandfather Emma tells one little lie that grows into one big whopper of a tale. Can she tell her Grandfather the truth and break his heart or does she tell the man she's secretly in love with that she lied about their relationship? Can love blossom based on a lie?This was a really cute quick read. Emma is smart, funny and very driven in her career. She also loves her Grandfather and only wants to make him happy. This is the beginning of the end in some ways for Emma. [...]

    4. Couldn't get lost enough in the story to overlook the need for better edittingntences that didn't work well, parts that seemed to contradict each other. On a personal note, I'm not as big a fan of books where they spend a lot of time describing things (the people, what they're wearing, what they eat, what the furniture looks like). I enjoy descriptions, but when it feels like there's more time spent on that than the plot, it's not as interesting for me. There was definite potential here for this [...]

    5. An Unexpected Bride is quick tale about good intentions that escalate and spin wildly out of control. When Emma Wiggins is informed that her ill grandfather has very few days left to live her heart aches. It constricts even further when he professes that his dying wish is that he get to see Emma marry. To keep him from sinking further into sadness and to give him something pleasant to think about, Emma decides that a little white lie couldn't hurt. Emma tells her grandfather that she's engaged t [...]

    7. This was a cute read. It had it's charming moments and I found it was very easy to read. I was able to read it in one sitting. While I never really connected with Emma, I found myself hoping for the best for her.I had hoped for more in the beginning and ending of this book, but I really liked the journey. I thought that Emma and Evan got a chance to shine a bit more and we got the chance to get to know who they are. Watching Emma care for her grandpa in the his final days was a bit of a tear jer [...]

    8. This was a cute, love filled romance with all the little quirks you expect to see in a romance, lust, care, pain, heartache, joy and excitement it was what I describe a cutesy romance story which made you feel good and made you smile.Emma, well I loved her character it was like she was a pure naive angel believing a little white lie would remain just that when it escalated it was like watching a little girl struggling to tell the truth to the big wide world but really the lie wasn't made in gree [...]

    9. You can find this complete review at Forever Book Lover. I was excited to read the book after reading the summary. The author wove a believable relationship with Emma and her "Gramps". I think many of us, if given the same circumstance, would do whatever it took to grant the most important person in our life their final wish. Emma got herself in quite a mess once she told her "Gramps" she was engaged, and I was curious how she was going to get herself out of her predicament.There was so much the [...]

    10. Juvenile writing and predictable pilot. The attempts at providing depth to the characters was flat as most of the information was repetitive. She could have reveled in to Evans fear of marriage through more flash backs to childhood and more about his history with his father. Best friend Genie was also very one dimensional. Her relationship with her mother was a waste. So much could have been explored there but the author took the easy way out.

    11. This is a Truly remarkable debut novel by author Shadonna Richards It's a lovely well-written story that has you anticipating that intenseionate attraction that both characters have for each otherWith Shadona's simplicity in writing and the wonderful characters that you really believe in. makes for one fantastic readhighly recommend!

    12. Easy Read Looking forward to the next one in the series. The author keeps you engaged. If someone is looking for a quick romantic read here is one for you.

    13. Meh.Just could not fall in love with this book. Too perfect characters, too detailed on things that added nothing. A story with unrealized potential. I did not finish it so perhaps the last quarter redeemed the overall work.

    14. When I need a break from murder and mayhem books, I enjoy a nice romantic comedy novel. This was a novella but it qualified for me.A girl loves her Grampa. It is that simple. I would say she is joyfully devoted to him. As the book progresses you, the reader, realizes that he, and his deceased wife, were the main structure to her family while growing up. In fact, one of my (5 star) moments was when the Mother comes to the wedding. I did not like her a bit. So, when Grampa has only one wish before [...]

    15. Ugggghhh!!! I hated this book so much that I started highlighting the very bad prose- I've made them public so others can see what I read. I just couldn't finish it!

    16. I love the premise for this story. It starts off with a woman making a promise to her dying grandfather that she would get married before he died (which wasn’t that far away from happening). Emma is one of those sweet and innocent characters that you can see doing something like this. The one problem being the first man she thinks of to be the lucky groom is totally against marriage. This is all rather ironic because their advertising agency is working hard to win a big account with a wedding [...]

    17. Emma Wiggins has been focused on two things: her grandfather's failing health and her job at Fletcher Advertising Corporation. But when the doctor's tell her her grandfather only has days to live, she breaks down and tells one little lie hoping to ease his mind into his next life. See, her grandfather doesn't want Emma to be alone and he fears that when he passes, she'll only live for her job. So, on his deathbed he tells her of his wish for her to be married, just like Mr. H's (his next door ne [...]

    18. This is a sweetly written story from start to finish with a hero and heroine that are perfectly matched. Both are trying to take care of ill loved ones while dedicating themselves to work. Emma and Evan have always desired the other, but until Emma tells her little white lie they've never admitted the truth about their feelings. Once they do, Evan has to work past his family's history of fear of commitment to reach the altar.As I said, this is a sweet story. The characters are sweet, their actio [...]

    19. Have you ever told a little white lie just to make someone's wish come true - especially if you knew you would never have to follow through? Emma did just that. Her grandfather was on his deathbed with mere days, if not hours, to live and the only thing he wanted to see before he died was for Emma to get married. Then he could die a happy man because he knew she would have a family that would carry on his bloodline. Poor Emma felt she was letting him down. Shoot, she wasn't even dating, let alon [...]

    20. Today's review is on An Unexpected Bride by Shadonna Richards.An Unexpected Bride was an unexpected delight to read.

    21. The plot is interesting and the blurb really draws you in, it leaves you expecting a funny, thrilling, tongue in cheek ride! And as fun and cheerful as this book is it's lacking that little bit of extra to make it great. I think if it had been tad bit shorter it would have been more compact and would have had a more fast pace 7 day "courtship".Emma was fun and reading her embarrassment and antics was entertaining, Evan was a truly commitment phobic corporate guy so much so that it was annoying i [...]

    22. An Unexpected Bride is a cute romance. It's a quick read coming in at about 120 pages. Great for a rainy afternoon. I enjoyed the chemistry between Emma and Evan. Both are smitten over each other, but neither one wants to take the first step. Evan is afraid to get close because of a family curse he believes will turn him crazy because of love. Emma and Evan are perfect for each other and I was hoping for their HEA. The one thing I wish is that is was a bit longer. I would have liked to see more [...]

    23. I am not sure what the author of this novel hoped to achieve with such an underdeveloped story. The character's feelings were repetitious, there were pages of what the hero and heroine liked or disliked, especially about New York, but no real attempt to build character or any real rapport between them. She is gorgeous/he is gorgeous, she is breathtakingly beautiful in a wedding dress, he's really ripped. That's about it. The story of why Evan is against marriage was unconvincing to say the least [...]

    24. Short story, thankfully, or I might not have finished it. The premise is sweet, her grandfather on his death bed, wants her to get married, he cries, he has days to live, so she tells him that she's marrying her boss. Gramps plans the wedding for the next week and calls all the family. Then she has to tell her boss, who she has the hots for. Maybe because it was a novella there wasn't time/space to set up their romance properly. It was like they thought each other was hot and then they were in l [...]

    25. Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?I took a quick liking to both Emma and Evan. They were pretty adorable and very much in denial which made them even cuter. I would have liked some more from the ending. What made Evan make his decision? What did his dad tell him? I need details! I'm way too nosy to not know these things. The time just flew while I read. I love stories like this that provide that temporary escape. That's what An Unexpected Bride was for me, a fun little escape. Overall, the sto [...]

    26. Emma Wiggins’s grandfather is dying and his final wish is to see Emma married. For his peace of mind and to make him happy Emma tells him she engaged…engaged to her boss, Evan Fletcher. One lie leads to another. Emma ends up telling Evan what has happened, he agrees to a fake marriage. I hate to write bad reviews but I do not see this book winning any writing awards. It was simple and pretty mindless.

    27. First I'll start with I'm not a fan of narrative books. I like interaction with the characters. There was some, but not enough. I also found that there were so many details that I started to lose interest. In all honesty, I started to skim the book. The overall idea was smart & I thought well written, therefore the two stars & not one. I won't continue the series. :(

    28. Did not finish--- While the story was cute, it was too descriptive. What should have taken a sentence or two to describe would take paragraphs; by the time you got to the end of the description you forgot what the main point of the descriptions was. Again, the story line was cute the description was almost annoying. I think a good edit/clean up would do wonders to An Unexpected Bride.

    29. What will you do to please someone you love?Will you fake being bride?I was please with this book, it was written and funny, because how the her grandmother got better and she need a real husband.Enjoyable book.

    30. The books are too quick with barely a climax. There are some points that were good, but comparing to other books of the same genre, I feel this author could have put in a little more time with character development. The books had promise, but just not enough to warrant more stars.
