In the Nebraskan Territory of 1859, Gavin Miller writes home to request the hand of Miss Marguerite Chandler. Unfortunately, while he never forgot Marguerite was the French word for Daisy, he'd failed to recall that the two cousins shared their grandmother's name, and Marge was the nickname of the wrong Miss Marguerite Chandler! When his surprise bride comes to Buttonwood, unexpectedly followed by the very cousin he'd meant to marry, will Gavin be able to solve The Bride Blunder?

This book has mystery, romance, God's deisgn for lives, and a way of keeping the reader interested throughout the entire book. There are some humorous times and stressful times but shows how perserverance and trust in God wins out. It shows the reader believable choices and their consequences. Gods hand in the lives of the characters are evident.
The Bride Blunder was a good conclusion to the Prairie Promises series by Kelly Eileen Hake. While I must confess that book two, The Bride Backfire, was my overall favorite, The Bride Blunder served to wrap up a few loose ends with one of my favorite characters, Midge. I really wanted to see her find the perfect mate, and believe me, she does.
What really disappointed me was that this was basically three stories in one, and at times, I simply lost interest. I wish that Marge and Gavin's story had been more in the forefront, but unfortunately when it was, it seemed to be the same thing churned over and over again. On the other hand, Daisy's portion of the story was really good, and I loved the determination she found in herself toward the end.
But I've saved the best character for last....cranky Ermintrude. Well, who wouldn't be cranky all the time with a name like that?!?! Don't think for a second that she's not gonna give you a piece of her mind, even if you don't ask for it. She had so much spunk and personality that, at times, she had me roaring with laughter! Every western needs someone like her. :o)
While this wasn't my favorite book of Kelly's, I am definitely a fan of her work. The first two books in this series were very well-written, and I'm eager to get my hands on some of her other books. The Bride Blunder gets a rating of 3 Stars.
Any book from Kelly or her mother is worth the time to read. So much humor, well written, and wonderful story lines. I would give the first book 5 stars, the second 4, but in the 3rd book, one character whined just a little bit to much for my enjoyment. All in all, I would still by the book.
I've enjoyed this series by Kelly, but still enjoy her mother's writing better. I think Kelly will continue to improve. She includes humor in her stories as her mother does, which is something I enjoy in a story.
I couldn't put this one down. Started it on Saturday. When I picked it up again on Sunday night, I just had to finish it. Stayed up until past midnight. I know authors frequently write trilogies, but I hope this is not the end of this series.
I've read all three books in this series and this was my favorite. The story was interesting and they way Kelly constructed her sentences made me read a littler slower (I'm a VERY fast reader). This added to the interest of the story and my enjoyment.
