Reclaiming the Runaway Bride
Seven years and two broken engagements haven't erased Garrett Mitchell from Molly Scott's mind. Her employer insists Molly and Garrett belong together. To appease the well-meaning matchmaker, the pair agrees to a pretend courtship. But too late, Molly finds herself falling for a man who might never trust her.
Garrett is a prominent Denver attorney now, not the naive seventeen-year-old who always felt second-best. Surely the string of suitors Molly's left behind only proves her fickleness. Does Garrett dare believe that she has only ever been waiting for him? The third engagement could be the charm, for his firstand onlylove.

Finally a Bride by Renee Ryan (Charity House #7) 4 STARS I have read 5 books in this series this week. I have liked them all. I can't think of which one I have liked best. The best character of them all is Molly scott. She has changed and grown up. They are all clean books. Finally a Bride deals with self worth, faith and forgiveness,hav Molly Scott is the main character in Finally a Bride. We met her first in The Marshal Takes a Bride (Charity House, #1) she was 5 years old. Now Molly is a companion to Mrs. Beatrix Singletary. Molly has had two engagements broken off. We find out more about her life before her sister found her at 5 years old. Garrett Mitchell is the middle child. He has come back to town after he became a lawyer. Mrs. Beatrix Singletary wants him to work with her. Mrs. Singletary is a rich widow. She supports a lot of charities. She also likes to be a matchmaker. She thinks Molly and Garrett should be together. The plot is Molly and Garrett were close growing up. In fact seven years ago they were in love. Then Garrett went away to school. They thought they were not important enough to each other. Now Garrett is back in Denver. There is also a secondary plot line that leads into the next Charity house maybe even the one after but I am guessing on that. I have read this series in the wrong order. You don't have to but get more out of them if you do. I had read #8 first this week. You will see the characters in previous books as secondary characters and catch up to their lives. This does quote a bunch of scriptures and talks about prayer. In a good way as a natural part of the story. Charity house is a place for children of prostitutes to go. They are raised with Christians values and get a education and love. These children are not welcome by most other people. Molly lived their her 5th year with her sister. The setting is Denver, Colorado 1894 I have liked Renee Ryan's style of writing and will look for more of her works in the future. I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin. I agreed to give honest review of Finally a Bride.
Although Finally a Bride is book seven in the Charity House series by Renee Ryan, it is the first book of the series that I have read. I hoped when I started reading that I would not be lost because of missing so many books before it. That was not a problem. This book stood alone as a wonderful story and I now want to go back and read the entire Charity House series! And that is just what I plan to do. I absolutely love books where the two main characters previously had a relationship that ended badly. Watching them work through past issues and forge a new, stronger relationship is so enjoyable. Garrett and Molly are great characters. I really liked them both and wanted to see things work out for them. They grew up as friends and fell in love. But they ended up going their separate ways and both carried a lot of hurt. Watching them open up their hearts and seeing them learn to trust each other was so sweet. Finally a Bride was such a great book and I definitely recommend it to fans of Christian romantic fiction.
Good Read Molly Scott is known for her broken engagements. She works for a wealthy widow who is also playing matchmaker. Her employer tries to set her up with Garrett but what she does not know is Garrett and Molly had been sweethearts seven years ago. They each hold resentment over what happened yet they can’t deny they still have feelings for each other. Can they let go of the past and begin a new? I have only read two books in this series so far. I’ve enjoyed both books. What I liked: Both Molly and Garrett were likeable characters. Mrs. Singletary was a great side charter. I liked how characters from some of the earlier books were included but they did not overshadow the main story. I am hoping that there will be some more books and that Garrett’s sisters might be in them. The plot was pretty good. Very predictable but the chemistry between Molly and Garret made it enjoyable. What I did not like: Not much. Like I said above it was pretty predictable and maybe a little slow in the middle. Over all I liked this book and hope to read some of the first books of the series at some point. I’m also hopeful there will be more books in the series. This is a solid love inspired book check it out.
