The heroine of this story have issues. Trust issues. I think I could relate to the heroine in this story. It is really hard to trust again when the one that you loved betrayed you and humiliate you in the worst way possible. Many would say that the heroine of this story is a stubborn fool for having fears of trusting, but I won’t exactly say that. When you’re hurt by the man that you trusted most and the man that you hoped to protect you from all worldly harm, you’ll do the same thing, you’ll build a wall, a fortress all around you so that you won’t ever get hurt again.It is not easy to trust again, even if you have forgiven their fault.
This book is really close to home, and at some point, I found myself nearly crying, for I could feel the heroine’s pain and distrust.
This book is a very inspirational read. If you ever feel heartbroken and feels as if you couldn’t trust anyone ever again, let this book remind you that even if the whole world has hurt you beyond healing, He is always faithful and by trusting God, you shall heal… in time.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from thomas Nelson Publisher via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review for this book.
When a wedding reenactment turns real, this cowgirl suddenly finds sheâ€™s an accidental bride. Shay Brandenberger is raising her daughter in Moose Creek, Montana on her childhood ranch, nestled against the Yellowstone River. Despite her hard work, she canâ€™t seem to keep her head above waterâ€”and now the bank is threatening to foreclose. She prays for a miracle, but the answer she receives is anything but. Having agreed to play the bride in the Founders Day wedding reenactment, Shay is mortified to be greeted at the end of the aisle by none other than Travis McCoy, her high school sweetheartâ€”the man who left her high and dry for fame and fortune on the Texas rodeo circuit. Then the unthinkable happens. Thanks to a well-meaning busy body and an absent minded preacher, the wedding reenactment results in a legal marriage. But before Shay can say annulment, Travis comes up with a crazy proposal. If she refuses his offer, sheâ€™ll lose her home. But if she accepts, she may lose her heart. Shay isnâ€™t sure if the recent events are Godâ€™s will or just a preacherâ€™s blunder. Will trusting her heart to the man who once shattered it be the worst mistake of her life? Or could their marriage be the best accident that ever happened?
