With a penchant for finding trouble, or having trouble find her, Ginesse Braxton is anything but your normal young lady. She longs to join her family in Egypt and follow her love of archeology out into the desert where she has discovered something quite remarkable. A lost city awaits her. All she needs now is a way to get there. She finds a way, in the person of one Mildred Whimpelhall, a fellow traveler on her way to her intended far into the desert.
Connie Brockway‘s novel entitled The Other Guy’s Bride has a fun, witty and sometimes humorous voice reminiscent of authors such as Lisa Klypas and Christina Dodd, but Brockway has a unique voice and a great creative mind.
The story never lags. It’s a historical romance that follows an adventure throughout the desert. She meets Jim Owen, a man with a secret of his own, and who owes Mildred’s intended a favor he would love to be out from under. So he takes who he thinks is Mildred and things do not go as planned from there.
Ginesse starts out a bit flippant and somewhat unappreciative of the trouble her actions can cause for others. We see the character grow throughout the book as she sees how her actions cause her, and others, more trouble than she ever intended.
If you love a fast-paced, historical romantic adventure, this is one not to be missed.
Happily ever after is never further away than a Brockway novel.
The Other Guy’s Bride is on sale in ebook format 11/22 and in paperback 12/22.
