This one might be my favorite of the series. Another great read from Melanie Snitker.

I started out really liking the characters in this book and wanted to see what happened to them, but I was disappointed in the book.

Things I liked:
Chrissy, even with her strange colored hair and nails, was so caring and worried about her sister. I really liked how she did all she could to help her family when times were hard.
Wyatt was actually sweet even though he came from such a messed up family. I did appreciate how he finally did stand up and do the right thing even when he knew it was unpop

Marrying Chrissy by Melanie D. Snitker

From fake relationship to forever love

Chrissy, Emma, and their mom had been taking care of each other pretty much Chrissy’s entire life. Because that is what family does. With Emma’s health issues, they had made choices to stick together and pool their limited resources. I loved seeing the closeness of their family and the relationship they had and the way they were so open and honest with each other. No secrets.

In this touching story, Chrissy and Wyatt had

This is the third book in the Brides of Clearwater series but can definitely be read as a stand-alone. I did not read the first two books but had no trouble diving into Chrissy’s story and thoroughly enjoying it. The book is well-written with a nicely paced plot and lovely endearing characters. If you enjoy sweet romance and happily-ever-afters, you will enjoy this book.

Chrissy is a sweet, kind, tender-hearted older sister trying to make ends meet so that her younger sister can have a healthy a

This is a story of the haves and the have nots. Chrissy never went to college, works as a coffee barista, and lives with her mom and sister. She helps support the family due to her sister’s heart transplant and subsequent medication costs. Wyatt comes from a multi-million dollar family, and manages the country club that his parents own. Their only common thread…the coffee shop where Chrissy works.
Frustrated with his parents’ nagging about finding a potential wife, Wyatt offers to pay Chrissy to

Dreams Do Come True

Billionaire books are a dime a dozen with sex being highly over rated and detailed. Melanie's books are able to keep the readers attention w/o details of sex.
In this day and age, I find an author that can accomplish this to be highly regarded as THE BEST AUTHOR OF ALL TIMES!
The world needs this type of writing as each day the world seems to get too much exposure to the parts of unrealistic expectations of love and live.
This author should be praised for writing books that can

This is a sweet inspirational story about two thirty-year-olds reluctant to give relationships a chance. Chrissy and Wyatt meet at the coffee shop that Wyatt frequents and strike up a casual friendship. This friendship soon leads to more when Wyatt asks Chrissy to pose as his fake girlfriend at a family reunion. I enjoyed this lighthearted clean read and I appreciated Wyatt's desire to choose God's best in his life and relationship.

I received an advanced copy from the author. This review is my

A woman who works in a coffee to make ends meet and help to pay for her sisters medical bills. A man who wants for nothing except a date for his grandmothers 90th birthday party.
Cue a unique first date which costs Wyatt £500 and helps Chrissy pay some of the medical bills. However; life is never quite that simple. What happens next is the story of a woman who has nothing but love to offer and a man who may lose everything if he gives her that love.

Chrissy has such a loving family and she will do anything for them. Wyatt not so much but, he loves them especially grandma. She was a hoot. A phone call while at the coffee shop turns into an opportunity for them both. Can this turn into more? Some angst but loved the relationship Chrissy and Wyatt build. Forgiveness and listening are two elements of this book. Love this series and this one is my favorite.

I love how truly realistic and detailed this story was. The journey of the relationship was real—slow and hopeful—not one day meeting each other and the next day kissing like so many books write about. I loved Chrissy’s personality—her loving relationship with her sister and mother was so endearing. Wyatt was such a gentleman and a hard-working hero. His kind, easy-going way was so refreshing. This was a delightful story to read—excellent plot!

I love this book!

I love Marrying Chrissy. I love ALL of the Brides of Clearwater! And the stories are even better when you read the series a second time since you now know the OTHER characters and THEIR romances. It’s a bit like a family reunion! And I’d say that Chrissy and Wyatt are one of my favorite couples... But... Honestly ;o) they are ALL my favorite!

Melanie Snitker has done it again!
Book 3 in the Brides of Clearwater series is a great read.
Nothing like pressure from your family to find "the one". And when you think you've found that person, part of the family does not approve. So the decision: marry for love or marry because Mama and Daddy have selected someone they like.

Uplifting Romance

This is a beautiful and uplifting romance with charming characters and surprisingly fun moments that will have you laughing and hopefully believing in true love again.
Darla Damron
Great story and loved the characters! I read this book in 2 days and could not put it down. The story just drew me in from the first page.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and was under no obligation to post a review.

Sweet clean romance with a ribbon of faith. The characters are fun and engaging, and while the plot isn't unique the story is well told.
