The Runaway Bride Summary


The Runaway Bride - ❤ A bride in trouble, a doubting cowboy
** USA TODAY BESTSELLER **
“Are you sure, baby?”   The worried father of the bride-to-be asks when he sees the turmoil on his daughter’s face.
Just before she’s supposed to walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overhears a conversation that indicates marrying this groom might be an epic mistake. Fleeing the groom and wedding, she drives west, covering her tracks as she goes. In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerves to avoid hitting a horse and rider – the Lone Ranger? she fleetingly wonders -- and drives into a tree. She’s rescued from the wreck by the rider, a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance.
Judi needs a place she won’t be found and time to puzzle out the predicament awaiting her back in Illinois. But thinking straight is no easy task around this doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, remarkable green eyes, a commanding presence, and a lot of suspicions.
While Judi evades his personal questions, Thomas dismisses his half-sister Becky's diagnosis of amnesia. But to his surprise, his beloved grandmother backs Becky on amnesia and that Judi must be the caretaker they expected to help Gran post-surgery. Judi seizes on this foot in the door, gladly caring for Gran. Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as a home health aide slowly unravels. If she reveals her secrets will Thomas bolt from her life?
Thomas knows in his bones that this impostor is lying, another outsider betraying his family. But even predicting disaster, can he stop himself from giving this sexy, independent, smart woman his heart?

5-star reviews for The Runaway Bride ...
“There is nothing about this book that I didn't love. ...One of the most refreshing heroines I have read in quite some time. She is smart, funny, and has a big heart. Hero Thomas is hard-working, grumpy, and HOT.… I can't recommend this book highly enough.”
“Sometimes funny but always GREAT!”
“A fantastic, fun read with memorable characters you'll fall in love with!”
“There were times I was laughing so hard, I almost fell out of my chair, there were other times I was crying and was reaching for the Kleenex, and then there were the times that I looked at the clock and realized that I had already missed a meal and was on the way to missing another… This is a winner."
And for The Wedding Series:
“A wonderful series that will make you laugh and cry. Each page is filled with love that will eventually come to the people who so need it. A must read!”
“Fun and serious all at the same time. ... Really enjoyed this series!”
"Great love stories! … Must read all books in the series! … I laughed and cried!”
"Love it...Love it....love it..... very real. Do I recommend it? Without a doubt, 100%.”
