"The Unintended Groom" by Debra Ullrick is another book about the Bowen siblings. At least Abby Bowen stuck with the same format as her three older siblings got their spouses. If you have missed the first three Ms. Ullrick books then all I can say is that they are worth the wait.

Abby Bowen the youngest and possibly the most spoiled out of the siblings, but she needs to get out of Paradise Haven so she goes to Colorado to see if she can't make at least one dream come true. She has a great strengt

Abby Bowen's fiancee left her heart broken and she forges forward with her dream of opening a dinner theater in Colorado. Problem is the town council won't approve her business license...because she is a woman. They demand she find a male business partner or she would never be approved. She is a strong woman as well as Christian and sets a wonderful example of turning everything over to the Lord.

Harrison Kingsley, a widower with twin, four-year-old sons, answers her ad for his own reasons. He do

Abby Bowen is not impressed. Having her dream of marriage and children quashed, she has moved to Colorado to pursue the only other dream she has – opening a dinner theatre. But the mayor and the other committee members aren’t sure of a woman leading such a business. They give her an ultimatum: Find a male business partner or they will not give her a license.

To Harrison Kingsley, Abby's advertisement seems perfect. He can help her achieve her dream, and also fulfil the terms of his father's will,
This wasn't my favorite of the series. (FYI this is the fourth in a series, the others being:
#1 The Unexpected Bride (Love Inspired Historical)
#2 The Unlikely Wife (Mills & Boon Love Inspired Historical)
#3 Groom Wanted (Love Inspired Historical)

Abby was a true "character" in the other books, the youngest of the siblings with a ton of personality and quirky ways, so I was really looking forward to reading her story. I was a bit disappointed to find out she moved away from the ranch to another
While this story was good, it was much slower paced than the others by this author.
