A Pie Contest Fit for a Groom

I can't believe I haven't yet told you about this fun new series that Vickie McDonough is doing set in Texas and called the Texas Boardinghouse Brides.

It all begins with a crazy mail-order bride fiasco in The Anonymous Bride.
Luke Davis tells his cousins he’d get married if the right woman ever came along, never imagining the mayhem such a remark would make. For a month later, three mail-order brides arrive, courtesy of his well-meaning, scheming friends. How will he decide which one’s right for him? Widowed boardinghouse owner Rachel Hamilton loves Luke but never worked up the courage to tell him. Now that three brides have shown up, vying for his hand, Rachel is totally unnerved. What will she do if Luke marries someone else? Will he ever realize that sometimes love is right in front of you? Maybe a pie contest where the winner gets the groom will help him decide.

Book 2, Second Chance Brides, that finds love for those leftover brides, releases in September.

This was an excellent novel! It had all the elements of a great story from start to finish. I can't wait for the rest in the series to come out.
