A delightful read! A sweet story about two people who don't realize what they've got even while it's staring them in the face. Well done!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Two best friends, Leah Bowen and Jake Lure, place ads in the New York Times newspaper for a groom and a bride, respectively. They plan to help each other make their choice from the many responses to their ad. Meanwhile Jake stops reading his replies, realizing he loves Leah. But will Leah give up her desire to move to New York and realize what she searches for is right before her? The plot is compelling as the two lives crisscross, resulting in near-misses for intimate moments. Humor slips into the story at just the right times. Is Leah’s desire to move east strong enough to force her to choose a stranger over her best friend as a spouse? Memorable characters.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

"Groom Wanted" is another wonderfully crafted and entertaining story by Debra Ullrick! After reading "The Unexpected Bride" and "The Unlikely Wife" I was expecting another great story about the Bowen family, and I’m happy to say, I wasn’t disappointed!
"Groom Wanted" puts a different kind of twist on mail-ordered matches. Jake Lure is looking for a wife, while Leah Bowen is looking for a husband who will take her away from the Idaho Territory, a place she can’t leave fast enough.
Jake and Leah are the best of friends. When they both placed an advertisement in the papers in search of a spouse, they decided to help each other pick out the perfect match. When the letters begins to start pouring for them both, it looks like all of their dreams are finally going to come true. But . . . what started out as a friendship between the two, is quickly turning into something deeper, and to their surprise, they both find themselves falling in love with each other.
What a sweet and affectionate love story, it had me holding my breath with each turn of the page. I found myself cheering this sweet couple on. I even loved the ornery old goat, “Meanie” especially when she rammed her head into the arrogant Fitzwilliam Barrington, and left him sprawled out on the ground.**grin**
I can’t wait to see what Debra has in store for us next!

This clever plot of two best friends helping each other search for a spouse and the surprises they find make for a fun and fast read. We revisit characters in the author’s novels “The Unexpected Bride” and “The Unlikely Wife” which are also chock full of interesting characters and plots. The setting gives insight into the time and culture of the era and area. She even brings in a new animal full of mischief! Great read for a vacation!Was this review helpful?

Love Inspired Historical author Debra Ullrick has once again created a delightful tale of romance in the old west. I love books that take us back to an era when family and faith were foremost. Leah and Jake are best friends searching for love through the mail. They grow closer, feelings change and we meet some very interesting characters in this sweet mail-order bride story. As in any well-written romance there are obstacles to overcome and Leah and Jake both have past experiences that need to be resolved before they can truly be happy. The book had me rooting for them to find their way and cheering by the time I reached the happy ending.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
