When I saw that Harlequin is slowly going to release old books in ebook format, called Harlequin Treasury, I was very excited. Some authors were old favorites, like Penny Jordan, and I'd like to read those works of hers that I'd missed.

WOMAN TO WED? is part of a trilogy of three women who'd vowed never to get married. I'd read another book in the trilogy, BEST MAN TO WED?, years ago, and I was excited to get this book about the stepmother of the bride. The three stories happened more or less on

I was so torn with this book - does it deserve one star because it really is utter crap; or does it deserve five, because it's actually so terrible, it's good? I've gone for one, but there's a great deal of comic appeal in this book and if (like me) you're a bit of a student of the genre, then this book has a lot to offer.

My edition of this book was in the Penny Jordan "Wedding Nights" trilogy and I think perhaps the only real strength in the novel is the fact that it is offering three strands o
Three woman catch the same bouquet and vow to ignore superstition and never get married. Claire is one of those women, yet in Woman to wed? she finds love where she wasn't looking. Woman to Wed? is the first in a series that Penny Jordan wrote for Harlequin in the 1990s. Even though I didn't care too much for this one, I have put the other 2 on hold at my library. I want to know what happens to the other two women who caught the bouquet.

This book was just OK for me. I really had a hard time buy

I love Penny Jordan works, but this one in particular did not really amuse me or gives me those warm and fuzzy feeling. I feel annoyed with the whole stepmother-stepdaughter relationship instead. The maternal instinct that the heroine in this book had is way too ridiculous and exaggerating to me, considering that the age gap that the heroine had with her stepdaughter is not exactly that far.

Woman to wed is okay. I just had a hard time getting into the book. Which is probably my fault.
Sally fakes falling so her 3 bridesmades would save the boquet. Her step mother Clair, her best friend and her new husband's cousin all make a pact that they don't plan to get married and they will meet up in 3 months as a support group.
Clair had married her husband when she was 22 and became sally stepmom. She knew her husband was still in love with his first wife.
Clair gets bullied by her late husban

Penny Jordan's little British romance, Woman To Wed?, is the first entry in a trilogy about women who have eschewed love and marriage. In this one, the woman is a young widow who was not well-served by marriage the first time around. Now she is confronted by an American man who takes lodging in her house and begins changing all her notions about men and matrimony. It's a gentle, sweet story with enjoyable characters. The setting is slightly dated
