Oh just WoW I absolutely adore Shanna Hatfield books. She can write some of the most lovable characters. Piper, Colt, Rand and Ruth just came on in and cozied right on up into my heart. Oh and that scheming Matilda she is one colorful character. I adore her. When I finish a Shanna Hatfield book I am left with a feeling of Awe I can hardly explain. Easter Bride is just phenomenal and absolutely perfect. Shanna Hatfield Once again you mesmerize with your story telling talent

This is another really wonderful story in Ms. Hatfield’s Holiday Brides, a contemporary story. I love Piper our heroine and all her crazy animals she rescues. I love how she is so happy managing who grandpas’ feed store and she is happy doing it and taking care of the crazy menagerie of her rescue animals.
Colt is a handsome and wonderful hero who isn’t looking for love but his brother convinces him to go help Piper with her horse she rescued whose hooves do not look healthy and needs helps. He

She rescues animals. Who will rescue her dreams?

As you can see if you search my reviews by author or read the list of books I've read on Goodreads, I really like those by Shanna Hatfield. Her stories are heartwarming, creative, and fun. It was a no-brainer that I would read Easter Bride and enjoy. . .

Neither Piper nor Colton had any intention of even falling into like with each other. Their goal was merely to get her grandfather and his aunt together. But they didn't take meddling Matilda into c

This book is amazing. I have read a few romances in between my normal reads and this is one that sticks out for several reasons and that is because it is so sweet and swoony and a second chance romance for one couple and a romance for the other couple.

Piper works at her grandfather's farm and feed store in Holiday, Oregon. She loves working at the store and loves the farm but she is sad to see it go because her grandfather is selling the farm and the store. He is going to start his new life afte

So happy to go back to Holiday to visit. Love those senior citizens. Piper loves living in Holiday and running her grandfather's business. She knows he wants to sell it, but she hopes it won't happen for a long time. Colton is trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. He knows it won't happen on his family's ranch, but he really wants his own place and can't really afford it. When Piper and Colton are asked to help get Piper's grandfather and Colton's aunt together, they are all fo ...more

I am a bit embarrassed to admit this but I didn't realize this was the third book in the Holiday Brides series by Ms. Hatfield when I started reading, Easter Bride. I only mention this because this book is so good that I am sorry I missed reading the first two but I will be reading them as soon as possible.

I absolutely adored Piper Peterson from the start and could imagine being friends with her. She loves animals so much that she has rescued quite a few of them. she loves living in a small town

The Easter Bride (Book #3 in the Holiday Bride series) is a wonderfully crafted contemporary romance by the incomparable Shanna Hatfield. Piper Peterson is a delightful heroine, part tomboy, part girlie-girl, and all sass and heart. Her love for animals, from Charlie the rescued horse to Brer Stoker, the grumpy bunny, and a feed store full of baby chicks is sure to win your heart…just as she won Colton heart.
Colton Ford knows he wants to breed horses but isn’t sure how he can go about it. He’s a

This is only the second book I've read by this author but it won't be my last. What a sweet and warm romance with cowboys, ranch life, farms, lots of animals and of course strong women.

I loved Piper's relationship with her grandfather and how she's running things at the feed store until he sells it. She gets to live in the house on the farm where he grandparents used to live and where she would visit in the summer. She has lots of uncertainty in her life but takes every day in stride and still r

Okay, who's matchmaking whom?? Piper Peterson is right where she wants to be managing her grandfather's feed store and living in the small farm out back where she tends a menagerie of unwanted rescue animals. Colton Ford is staying at his brother's farm temporarily while he sorts out what he will do with his life. Eccentric Mathilda is at it again at the "Hokey Pokey Hotel" trying to make a long overdue match with Piper's Gramps and long time resident Ruth. The problem is Gramps wants to sell th ...more

The author kindly offered this book on AMZN at no cost over the Easter holiday weekend so I downloaded & read it. All opinions are entirely my own without compensation or expectation. I enjoyed Piper & Colton's characters, the wide array of animals, and description of the feed store with its gifts & antiques. This book had moments I dont prefer as I lean towards more "clean" reads. Examples include: The vintage necklace she’d worn made it nearly impossible for him to keep his gaze from straying ...more

I’m a lover of books, romantic stories, and sweet happy endings. Since I’ve discovered Shanna Hatfield I’ve been in an euphoric bliss.
She’s truly raised the bar and I find myself comparing other authors books to Shanna’s.
It is really hard to find an author that gives me this sweet happy feeling every time.
If you’re looking for a sweet happy no stress romantic book I highly suggest her newest: Easter Bride.

I know whenever I start reading one of Shanna Hatfield’s books, I am going to be smiling from ear to ear and this one did not disappoint!
I felt so bad for Piper when Colton came to her farm…no woman wants their first impression to consist of head to toe mud and muck from a barnyard! She took it all in stride and didn’t let that hiccup ruin future encounters with Colton! While I enjoyed their journey to love, I also very much appreciated the addition of the second love story between Rand and Rut

If you've read any of my blogs, then you know I love Shanna's books. Congratulations to Shanna on her new release "Easter Bride". It's a great choice to read as we are now in Spring. The characters are fun and love-able. You'll see some familiar people especially Ruth and Matilda. I loved the plot Matilda comes up with to play matchmaker. This lady cracks me up, she is hilarious! I always enjoy the animals Shanna weaves in throughout the pages. They are fun, quirky and the names will keep you s ...more

Colton isn’t very impressed with Piper the first time he sees her covered in mud chasing a goat ...... until he looks in her eyes.
They like each other but are both on a turning point in their life. They’re happy to help the local matchmaker to match her grandfather with his aunt and that they spend some time together isn’t bad. But can they become more then friends when their future is uncertain?
This is a sweet fun, romantic story including some very remarkable animals that you will love.

What a sweet story about love. It was a quick read and left the reader with a warm feeling about how easy it is to follow your heart. Loved Piper and her love for life and animals. She was one of those wonderful people who wanted to help those who could not help themselves. Colton was lost until he came to stay with his brother in Holiday. His way with animals shows that even big, strong, manly men can be soft and caring to others. Really needed to read this during the quarantine, it lifts one’s ...more

Easter Bride: A Sweet Romance!

This is another sweet and entertaining book by a very favorite author. Always guaranteed to have you laughing at the antics of the pets in the story and sighing at the romance between the lovely, strong heroine and the handsome, kindhearted, but strong hero. With a well written and fun storyline, this book had not just one, but two happily ever afters and I enjoyed it thoroughly. JudyE

Really cute story about a woman who helps to run her family farm store who gets some help with an injured horse she rescued from a cute guy who is trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. She is a little bit in limbo too because her grandpa is trying to sell the family homestead and farm store and she can't afford to buy it.
Fun, clean, cute and has some holiday tie-ins.
Part of a series, but a good stand-alone book.

This is my voluntary review of an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

What a fun story.
Not only are all the characters well done, but the story itself is fantastic!

Although this is Book 3 in a series, it works as a stand-alone.
There are many laugh-out-loud moments, as well as a few serious bits, mixed in this sweet romance.

Enchanting read

Immediately intrigued with the quirky Piper and those in her world. Well written novella read in an afternoon.

I received this as a free Bookfunnel giveaway with no strings. Gratifying way to meet an new author and discover how she writes. Definitely want to read more and will follow up with the excerpt of another of her books.

Sweet read

This farm girl loved reading this book. It’s a quick read . The characters are still nicely developed. Meet Piper who appears as a store manager who rescues animals of all kinds. I especially loved her getting good and messy because of the antics of the animals. I enjoyed reading this book this week!

This story was kind of boring and no real spark between Piper and Colt. I would have preferred Rand and Ruth to have been the center of the story. It was disappointing to not get more of their backstory and we didn't really get much of their courtship; just a complete turn-around to their wedding. ...more

This is a super fun story with wonderful characters, rescue animals with unique names and chick-ageddon. The funny way Piper and Colt meet for the first time is priceless and the way the story wraps up is lovely. I received a complimentary copy and I am voluntarily reviewing.

The double matches.

There is nothing like matchmaking with a twist. People can find love no matter how old or young they are. I’ve never read a story like this and it was very good.

Sweet, entertaining, and hilarious. What more could you want in a romance? Sometimes we readers need something that is lighthearted; something that brightens our hearts and puts a lasting smile on our faces.
