Editorial Reviews

Christian Book Reviews
Thisbook is a great tail of love forgiveness, and second chances. The thing Iabsolutely loved about this book was its ability to show that when we walk withChrist we aren’t held to our past. I think so often we, me included, forgetthat when we accept God’s grace and forgiveness the past is the past and we’reable to move on. This book does a great job at showing the same themes throughdifferent people and different stories.

Finally a Bride is a heart-warming story of redemption, forgiveness, and finally, acceptance, in the face of adversity. It is chock full of lovely well-rounded characters that look to God for direction to reach their individual goals in life. A strong, uplifting plot keeps the reader reading to a satisfying conclusion. The growth of each of the main characters, especially Jack and Noah, is both profound and extremely satisfying. It hits its mark without coming off as preachy. This is a must-read for any fan of inspirational historical romance. Finally a Bride is a real gem.

Vickie McDonough's third book in the Boardinghouse Brides trilogy is possibly her best yet.

All the story lines come full circle, wrapping up the series in a truly satisfying ending. Vickie McDonough is coming into her own as a popular inspirational historical romance author. Her books just keep getting better and better!

Vickie McDonough has penned a terrific read. She puts excitement into her prose that keeps the reader enthralled and turning the pages. There is nary a dull moment and her characters come across as believable and humanly faulty.

FINALLY A BRIDE is all about second chances. Readers will find life lessons within its pages. I read a previous book in this series, and will be looking for the one that I missed and other books by this talented author.

I would recommend this book to any and everyone because it has a positive and uplifting story with a great outcome. It goes to show that when someone willingly commits their life to Jesus they have to change from their their old ways no matter how major or minor to truly follow him.

I was so happy to learn that the third book in the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series was about Jack and Butch. I was also happy to see Carly back. And I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed with Finally A Bride...This was an enjoyable read and I would certainly recommend this book.

The Reader's Roundtable
Finally a Bride is a charming love story that teaches a valuable lesson in forgiveness and acceptance. It is an inspiring novel of redemption as Jack, Noah and Carly put the mistakes of their past behind them and accept the love that God brings into their lives.

RT Book Reviews
The third Texas Boardinghouse Brides book picks up where the last book left off. It is filled with strong and appealing characters. Although predictable, the romance between Jacqueline and Noah is a sweet story that brings the series full circle. The author teaches us about redemption and shows God's plan for each one of us. With enough summary of the other two books included in this story, this can be read as a stand-alone.
Angie Howatt
Book Bargains and Previews
The story was not only fun, but had some pretty intense underlying themes such as redemption, acceptance, and forgiveness. The book is really well-written and the characters come alive on the page and you part as friends. You will fall in love with this heart-warming tale.

    Jack's back!

    Having read the first two offerings in this author's Texas Boardinghouse Brides series, I had already fallen in love with young Jacqueline Davis (aka Jack Hamilton). The tomboyish child is all grown up in Finally a Bride, and dreams of snagging a job as a reporter in Dallas and shaking the dust of Lookout, Texas off her feet.

    Then Noah Jeffers comes to town to fill in for the minister. He's young. He's handsome. And he's hiding a secret that could destroy any chance of a relationship with Jack. Those same secrets have the young preacher making covert amendments all over town. His offers to chop wood for the town's busybody sisters and paint the walls of the general mercantile aren't made strictly out of the goodness of his heart.

    Even as Jack and Noah sort through their feelings for each other and try to find their paths in life, one of the original Lookout brides returns to town. Carly Payton is an ex-convict, and not at all the kind of wife Garrett Corbett thought he wanted. But Garret's about to learn a surprising lesson about how love works.and about the amazing grace of God.

    I loved this entire series, but Finally a Bride is far and away my favorite of the three books. Jack (Jackie, Jacqueline) is the perfect heroine-she's likeable, has tremendous personality, and possesses a penchant for getting herself into trouble. Noah is the ultimate flawed hero, with his inability to stomach pork, an amusing inclination to mispronounce words during his sermons, and a touching devotion to a certain young lady. And, as always, encountering well-loved characters from previous books is a special treat.

    Texas Boardinghouse Brides is, in this reader's opinion, a top-notch series. Each book is better than the last.which says a lot for the author's writing and storytelling skills. Kudos to Vickie McDonough, and "both thumbs up" to Finally a Bride!

    VERY easy read! The only source of criticism is that the ending could have been stronger, otherwise, BRAVO for this last book in the 'Boardinghouse Brides' series!!!

    Wonderful Read

    Finally a Bride by Vickie McDonough is the final book in the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series. This book focuses on Jacqueline "Jack" Davis, now a grown woman eager to leave her home town. She desires to land a job as a reporter in Dallas. Jack begins to question her aspirations to leave, when good-looking Noah Jeffers arrives to temporarily fill the slot of local minister.

    The pastor draws Jack's interest, despite her firm decision to never marry. The man seems vaguely familiar but is close-lipped regarding his past.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. I loved the way Vickie McDonough used this final saga to tell the story of the tomboy little girl she introduced in her first book, The Anonymous Bride. It was fun reading about grown up 'Jack'. I highly recommend this series, and am sad to see it come to an end.

    Redemption in Lookout Texas

    Jack finally has her own story. Only now she's willing to answer to Jacqueline. She still thinks of herself as Jack, but one must grow up and accept what she cannot change. Jack still climbs on rooftops and anywhere else necessary to get a story. She is a journalist after all. She hopes to build up her resume and make herself attractive to the paper in a larger town. Because of her father's abuse of both her and her mother, Jack knows she will never marry, so why can't she quit thinking about Noah? Vickie McDonough did a good job of tying up the loose ends from the first two books in the series, but this one can also stand alone.

    Finally A Bride - Another good read from Vickie McDonough

    Noah Jeffers enters town determined to make up for past misdeeds. Reporter Jacqueline Davis is determined to nail her story. Will she uncover Noah's secret before he can capture her heart? With nowhere else to go, ex-con Carly Payton returns to the Lookout boardinghouse. Garret Corbett is looking for an upstanding wife, not some jailbird. What will he do when overpowered by Carly's unassuming appeal? Does love deserve a second look?
    Another fun story from Lookout, Texas by Vickie McDonough. The Anonymous Bride (Texas Boardinghouse Brides, Book 1) introduced us to some fun characters including Jacqueline 'Jack' as a little girl. Second Chance Brides (Texas Boardinghouse Brides, Book 2) gave us more about the delightful, impulsive little girl. Now in Finally a Bride she is a young woman coming of age and gets her own story.
    I liked that Vickie McDonough kept the fun, impulse edge to Jack's character while at the same time presenting her as a young woman. Having read the first two, I had not problem envisioning Jack on the roof trying to get her story as a reporter in the opening page of the novel. Fun stuff.
    This was a satisfactory conclusion to the stories of the characters first introduced in The Anonymous Bride, but still stands alone as a story of its own. Looking forward to more lively, delightful stories from this author.

    Best of the Series

    I have thoroughly enjoyed Vickie McDonough's Boardinghouse Brides series, and this final installment was by far my favorite. Jaqueline "Jack" Davis has been the highlight of each book with her rambunctious, tomboy ways. What a treat to see her all grown up with that rambuctious streak only slightly dimmed. She still finds scrapes to get into and conclusions to jump to, but this time there's a handsome man to catch her when she falls. Noah Jeffers is a hero with a heart for God and a past to atone for. He stole my heart from the beginning with his vulnerability and determination to set things right no matter how uncomfortable returning to his home town became. Cameo appearances by the other Boardinghouse Brides made for a delightful feeling of coming home. And hooray that big-hearted Rand Kessler finally finds the woman meant for him. And Carly and Garrett's love story, while secondary to Jack and Noah, was no less enjoyable. Town secrets, suspicious robberies, and even a case of murder add spice and drama to this warm-hearted story. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy fun, historical romance. If you haven't read the other books in the series, don't let that stop you. This book stands alone and takes place ten years after the previous book, so it is easy to follow without the others.

    Wonderful finale!

    If you're a McDonough fan you know her books are heartwarming and will keep you turning pages. This series has been especially satisfying, seeing how all the characters come full circle in love and their relationships with the Lord. Come to Lookout, Texas and watch the adventures of 'Jack', Carly and Garret unfold!

    Fun and entertaining

    I've read all three of The Boardinghouse Bride series and if you've read the other two you'll LOVE this one. Finally a Bride was a fun story. I think this one just may be my favorite. Maybe it's because I felt like I already knew everyone. Vickie McDonough did a great job with bringing the hero and heroine to life. Fall in love with Jack all grown up. See her struggle with what is really important in life and have to make some life changing decisions. I loved Noah and felt his frustration. He is a man that regrets his past and wants to prove himself before he reveals his former life. Any we can't forget Carly and Garrett. You'll see love blossom and forgiveness prevail. I highly recommend this book!

    Recommended Read

    Jacqueline "Jack" Davis doesn't need a man in her life. After years of suffering abuse at the hands of her biological father, Jack won't allow herself to dream of a life filled with a husband and children. This is further demonstrated by Jack's need to constantly fend off the amorous advances of local wild-child Billy Morgan, who is determined to make Jack his wife.

    Jack's goal is to get out of the idyllic town of Lookout and to become a reporter in Dallas. A story on the shady doings of the town mayor is sure to do it. But the arrival of new pastor, Noah Jeffers, soon alters Jack's outlook on life. When an opportunity presents itself, can Jack really leave Noah and her family behind?

    Noah Jeffers reluctantly accepts the position of interim pastor in Lookout. His past and present colliding, he looks to God for guidance. Noah has secrets-big ones-surrounding both Lookout and Jack. In Lookout, he seeks forgiveness and redemption from the past. But his immediate attraction to Jack threatens to derail his plans.

    Carly Payton seeks acceptance and forgiveness from the people of Lookout. But her past may simply be too retched to forgive and forget. A former member of a violent gang, Carly had paid for her mistakes of the past by enduring a long prison sentence. Although she has found God and accepted Him into her life, Carly still travels a rocky road. The people of Lookout are not happy or accepting of an ex-convict into their town, especially when her arrival coincides with a spate of violent crimes.

    But it isn't long before Carly catches the eyes of bachelor Garrett Corbett. Garrett is anxious to finally find the right woman and start a family. But to Garrett, Carly doesn't meet his expectations of a possible wife. People would talk, he knows. He doesn't want to put himself or any future children at risk of a possible scandal. Still, a relationship with Carly feels right.

    Finally a Bride is a heart-warming story of redemption, forgiveness, and finally, acceptance, in the face of adversity. It is chock full of lovely well-rounded characters that look to God for direction to reach their individual goals in life. A strong, uplifting plot keeps the reader reading to a satisfying conclusion. The growth of each of the main characters, especially Jack and Noah, is both profound and extremely satisfying. It hits its mark without coming off as preachy. This is a must-read for any fan of inspirational historical romance. Finally a Bride is a real gem.

    Wonderful Conclusion!

    What a delightful story! Vickie McDonough treats her readers to a remarkable conclusion to the Boardinghouse Brides trilogy. The back cover copy calls it a tale of redemption, and it's that and more. Mixing humor with drama, McDonough gives the "bad boys" (and girls) of the previous two books a chance at love. Finally a Bride is a heartwarming story of two couples struggling to overcome their pasts as they build a future filled with faith and love. Note: Although this is the last of the trilogy, McDonough has skillfully included enough background information that it's not necessary to have read the previous two, but you won't want to miss any of the Boardinghouse Brides, so pick up a copy of The Anonymous Bride and Second Chance Brides, too.

    Worth the wait!

    Finally it's here! Jack's story is a hoot. McDonough let her grow up but she kept her rascally personality intact.

    Even jailbird Carly is back-her story though small was important to me from the other books and I'm glad to know what happens with her.

    Butch, Jack's nemesis turns up in an unexpected way as well.

    This is the last book in the Boarding House Brides series (you don't need the others first but you'll be missing some good reading if you don't get them!) and it's sad to let the characters go.

    McDonough pulls the personas of her characters through every book and page, you never wonder why did that character do that? It's not like her or him.

    The writing is fun, creative and entertaining.
