"Finally a Bride" by Renee Ryan is the seventh book in her Charity House series but a great stand alone book at the same time. This seems to take place at least seventeen, at least if I added everything correctly, years after the first book "The Marshal Takes a Bride".

This seems very fitting considering young little adorable Molly who helped get together her sister and the marshal together is now all grown up with her own story. Molly has experienced heartache and suffers more from pride than...more

"Finally a Bride" like all Renee Ryan's novels is a wonderfully, heartwarming love story with a strong message about faith woven in. The story begins when Molly Taylor Scott encounters Garrett Mitchell , the man who once broke her heart , on the streets of Denver. Sparks fly as emotions thought dominant are reawakened. But, can Molly and Garrett leave their past history behind and let love flourish? This is a story of victory over lost dreams, vanquished hopes , and lies born of pride.

Although Finally a Bride is book seven in the Charity House series by Renee Ryan, it is the first book of the series that I have read. I hoped when I started reading that I would not be lost because of missing so many books before it. That was not a problem. This book stood alone as a wonderful story and I now want to go back and read the entire Charity House series! And that is just what I plan to do.

I absolutely love books where the two main characters previously had a relationship that ended...more

Two childhood friends are torn apart by a broken engagement and separate dreams. Though years pass and each grow in maturity, will the time spent apart be too great for these two sweethearts to forge a future for themselves?

From the page where Molly first sees Garrett after not speaking to him for nearly a decade, the couple bring a lot of chemistry to the story. They might be reliving old hurts, dreaming of the future, carefully avoiding each other, or scheming to make friends think that they’r...more

I won this book thru one of the giveaways. This is one of the stories in the Charity House series of Love Inspired Historical published by Harlequin. I loved this story. It is a romance, with a twist. This is Molly Scott’s story. She and Garrett Mitchell grew up together in Denver. Then they became romantically involved and when Molly was 15, Garrett was heading out east to attend college. Due to Molly wanting to see Garrett achieve his dreams she let him go hoping he would ask to marry her and...more

Now she has had two broken engagements behind her and is working for a wonderful older lady as her personal assistant. Garret is back in town, but avoiding her. The opportunity arises and her empl...more
Love Inspired Historical novels are a charming way to unwind after a hectic day at work or preparing for Christmas. Finally a Bride takes the reader to Denver, Colorado in 1894. Glimpse what the frontier looked like through the eyes of the author and dream of days gone by. Although this is part of a series called Charity House, each book is a delightful read all on its own. I do hope to read the others of hers in this series, just because the characters all intrigue me so much. None of the chara...more
Sweet story and went enough written but story was slow and lacked drama and significant conflict - I Never doubted they'd get together. Molly surrounded by suitors vying for her attention was not an endearing start for me. If she fell into Garrett's arms one more time I might have just quit the book. The backstory of Molly's birth parents could have been developed into more but it felt flat.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have enjoyed watching Molly grow up. She has been one of my favorite characters. I hope that we also get to see the sisters get married. Happy Reading
Charity House!!! Need I say more?

The children of Charity House are growing up. Molly was a five year old when we first met her. Now she's experienced several broken engagements and thinks she'll never marry. Especially when her first love comes back to town and they ignore each other. But soon Molly and Garrett are thrown together daily and the old feelings, the old resentments, the old love return and have to be faced.

4.5 Stars - Enjoyed - There was obviously a lot of back story on other characters that was missing but it worked fine as a stand alone.

Renee Ryan grew up in a small Florida beach town. Surfing didn’t work for her, but that didn’t keep her from watching others tackle the waves. To entertain herself during those countless hours of “laying-out”, she read many of the classics. It wasn’t until the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Florida State University that she read her first romance novel. Hooked from page one, she...more
