THE BRIDE NEXT DOOR by Winnie Griggs is an interesting inspirational Historical Romance set in 1895 Turnabout,Texas. “Texas Grooms” #2,but can be read as a stand alone. See,”Handpicked Husband“. Fast paced story of healing and the power of love. Follow,Restaurant owner, Daisy Johnson,and Newspaper reporter,Everett Fulton on an amazing journey of a marriage of convenience to stop gossip and scandal. What they find is more than Everett thought he would want or find. He likes big-cities,not small town life,Daisy wants family,a home, and love. Together,they may just find their paradise and a boat load of peace,happiness,tenderness,and love. Fast paced from beginning to end. I enjoyed “The Bride Next Door” and look forward to the next installment.Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley. RATING: 4 HEAT RATING: SWEET REVIEWED BY: AprilR, (Review courtesy of My Book Addiction Reviews)

4 stars Today I have read all three of the Texas Grooms books that are out. I enjoyed each one that I had to read all three today. Of course I read #3 A Family for Christmas first today. Then reread Handpicked Husband #1. Then finished up with The Bride Next Door #2. I would suggest reading them in the right order is best but they all are good by themselves. I would start the next one but it is not out yet. The Bride Next Door is sweet, tender and I laughed too. It is a clean read. The plot is Daisy moves into Turnabout at night and moves into her building that has been closed up and is filthy. She is not afraid of hard work to make her dream come true. She is a positive person and so cheerful. She wants to open a restaurant and settle down with roots. Everett owns the newspaper next door and lives about it. He wants to get back to the city and working for a big newspaper again. He is a very uptight man. Fussy about just looking and keeping clean. Everett hires Daisy to cook for him and he will provide the food a little pay. That way he makes sure Daisy has food to eat to. I really like Daisy's character and how happy positive person she is. Everett has some good qualities too. Another character we meet in this book is Abigail. I like her idea of starting a lending library. You want to have everything workout for these characters and see what happens next in their lives. The Setting is Turnabout, Texas April 1895 I am waiting for the next book to come out. I will read it. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it in return by Netgalley and Harlequin. Published June 4th 2013 by Harlequin Love Inspired Historical 288 pages ISBN-10: 0373829671

A very well-written and enjoyable story, The Bride Next Door by Winnie Griggs did not disappoint. This is the second book in the Texas Grooms series, after Handpicked Husband. I enjoyed reading Everett's story. He is a rather uppity chap who wants life to be very ordered. Everett was emotionally scarred as a child and went on to make a grievous error in his journalistic career that lead him to the small town of Turnabout, Texas. Daisy is basically Everett's complete opposite. A free spirit, Daisy loves God and always looks for the silver lining in every situation. She has had troubles in her life as well, but she has risen above them with God's help and trusts Him to lead her as she tries to put down roots in Turnabout. Everett and Daisy end up as neighbors. Their living areas are over their workplaces that are next door to each other. Just as their acquaintance moves toward friendship and a good working relationship with each other, scandal erupts and forces the two to wed. Will these two opposites be able to form a life together or will their marriage be a sham? I have really enjoyed these two books in the Texas Grooms series and look forward to reading the third book when it releases in October. I was blessed to win this book from Winnie Griggs in a contest on Sharon Shrock's website, The Women of Valley View. I was not required to write a review, however, I happily do so.

 Daisy has wanted to have a place of her own for a long time and when her father wins a building in a card game she is excited to begin her new life. What she did not expect was to have a grouchy neighbor who due to a innocent scandal becomes her husband. Everett only plans to stay in town long enough to let the problems from his past settle. When Daisy sweeps in and intrudes on his quite life he is not sure what to do. Then he finds himself married to her. Can they find love in this untraditional marriage?      This book was okay. It was a quick read and the story was interesting. What I liked: I liked both Daisy and Everett. I also thought the plot was fun.  What I did not like: The romance was so so. They disliked each other quite a bit at first and then they where married and  it just seemed like the story was missing something in this area. I don’t want to give the ending away but it felt kind of fast and it would have been nice for it to have had a little more explanation of how Everett came to his decision.       Over all I liked the book but it could have used a little more plot development at the end. It’s a quick read and perfect for a car ride or vacation. This is the 2nd book in the series but can easily be read as a stand alone.
