The Bride Next Door pits spunky, down-home Daisy against Everett, a stuffy newspaper publisher. Daisy longs for a home, family and roots, but Everett only sees the small town of Turnabout as a step to bigger and better things. When the town gossips reveals a secret, Daisy and Everett are forced into a very inconvenient marriage-of-convenience.
Daisy is a feisty heroine who is easy to love and cheer for, but Everett is prickly and harder to get close to. Winnie Griggs does an incredible job creating a different kind of hero, who is about as lovable as a porcupine, but deep down, is chivalrous and big-hearted, even when he doesn't always want to be. The unlikely pair makes for some wonderful conflict and friction and eventually a true-love romance, that only God--or a very creative author--could design. Don't miss this wonderful story for a book that is different but delightful.
