Groom Wanted

Groom Wanted
Debra Ullrick
(Love Inspired Historical)
ISBN: 978-0373829293
August 2012/288 pages/$5.75

It's a perfect plan—-best friends Leah Bowen and Jake Lure will each advertise for mail-order spouses in the papers, and then Jake will help select Leah's future husband, while Leah picks Jake's bride-to-be! Surely the ads will find them what they seek: a wife who'll appreciate Jake's shy charm and a groom who'll take Leah away from the Idaho Territory she detests. When the responses to the postings pour in, it seems all Leah's and Jake's dreams will soon come true. But the closer they each get to the altar, the less appealing marrying a stranger becomes. Is it too late to turn back—or to turn around and find the happiness they truly seek together, at last?

Debra is a multi-published, award-winning author. The Unexpected Bride is her first novel with the Love Inspired Historical line. Her second, The Unlikely Wife, is the sequel to The Unexpected Bride and released in January 2012. For years, Debra has lived on a working cattle ranch in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with her husband of thirty-seven years and her daughter, which brings authenticity to her books that are set in the country and in the historical West. Besides following Christ, her passions include: reading, writing, drawing Western art, feeding wild birds, animals, and watching Jane Austen movies, COPS, Little People, Big World, and Castle. She is also a ginormous fan of classic muscle cars, mud-bog racing and monster trucks.

Debra loves to hear from her readers. You can find her online at: Facebook, Twitter and Shoutlife. Or you can contact her through her website at While there, check out Debra's other available titles.

This is such a fun read! Groom Wanted is one of those books where, even though you know how it will end, it's fun to "watch" it happen and amusing to see the characters be so clueless to what is obvious to everyone but them! Debra Ullrick has penned a delightful story with characters that immediately worked their way into my heart. Perfect for tucking into a bag or keeping in the car for those soon-to-begin school pick-up lines, this is a story you don't want to miss!

Hi Linda, You are so right Debra writes a wonderful fun book to read, I have read them before and will be looking for this one too. I love the ones for mail order brides so guess a groom would do the trick also.
