My review:

 First Bride to Fall is a clean, contemporary romance that will grab your attention from the beginning. It is a quick read, filled with heartwarming moments and humor.

While the story sounds like it will be predictable, and in places, it is, there were several little twists toward the middle that kept the story going. 

Nell was described as shy but portrayed herself as anything but in her quest to win Grant's heart. I wasn't a fan of her exaggerations nor withholding the complete truth to Grant. Grant wasn't perfect either, with the way he handled the information he learned about Nell. 

This is an "insta" love story with lots of miscommunication (a pet peeve of mine) and several instances where you will need to remind yourself you are reading a fiction book.

Overall, I enjoyed this one and look forward to more in this series!

Thank you to Net Galley and the Publisher for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to provide a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. 


Synopsis (from Goodreads): 

Nell Delaney will do almost anything for her parents and her two sisters. But enter a marriage of convenience to save the family’s coffee shop? Too far. So Nell and her sisters strike a deal: whoever hasn’t found love in thirty days has to step up to take one for the team. The good news? Nell knows the perfect guy to fall in love with. The bad news? She’s going to have to pretend she likes the outdoors…a lot.

Adventure guide Grant Williams knows immediately that Nell is not exactly Little Miss Outdoorsy. She’s a walking natural disaster—an amazingly adorable disaster. And whoa, their chemistry is unbelievable. Everything between them is so perfect, he’s not even a little bit shocked when he starts thinking of forever…

Right up until he catches the town gossiping about the Delaney sisters’ bargain and realizes she’s just using him to win a bet. Unfortunately, his family’s unreliable reputation means he can’t just dump one of the town’s sweethearts. No, she needs to dump him. If she’s going to pretend to be the perfect doting bride, well, he’ll just pretend to be the worst bachelor on the market.

Let the games begin…


  1. It sure has a fun premise. It's amazing what can happen when a couple just sits down and talks things out! Great review, Cindy

  2. More miscommunications! I share your dislike of them. :)

    1. Lark, I know, they just need to talk already, LOL!

  3. I read way toooo many murder mysteries! The first thing I thought of was - change the cover, change the font, get a creepy tagline and that title can be a really good murder mystery.... LOL!!!!

    Still, good review Cindy!
