Library JournalMadeleine Woodford's life in a small cottage with her five half-siblings is difficult enough without a stranger getting tossed from his horse practically on her doorstep. Now the unconscious fellow is in her bed, while she contemplates sleeping on the cold stones in front of the fire. Who would it hurt if she sneaked into that bed just to get some rest? Upon regaining consciousness, the stranger doesn't remember who he is, and Maddy can't help imagining a love all her own. Eventually, Nash Renfrew does recover his memory, but he won't tell this lovely, admirable, and fascinating woman that he is her new landlord, whose business agent has supposedly been trying to evict her—under his orders. Verdict Gracie (To Catch a Bride) paints an affecting portrait of a woman surviving parental neglect to manage a home via her wits (she barters home-grown vegetables, eggs, and honey for custom) and a diplomat who's not so diplomatic when it comes to the woman he wants but won't admit he loves. A finely crafted tale, with just the right amount of sexuality.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
