The Bride Backfire
Title: THE BRIDE BACKFIRE
Author: Kelly Eileen Hake
Publisher: Barbour Books
A feud between the Specks and the Grogans have gone on for generations. There is no making peace between the two families, especially when Larry Grogan starts stalking Opal Speck. When Adam Grogan wanders into Speck land looking for a stray cow, there is no way Opal’s family will forgive him for trespassing.
Determined to keep bloodshed at bay, Opal blurts out the one statement that will stop her family in their tracks. She says that Adam is the father of her unborn child!
Adam has two choices – the truth, saying he had no involvement with Opal, which would mean he dies at the hands of her family, or accept the slur to his name and marry a girl who’s trying to pass off another man’s child as his!
THE BRIDE BACKFIRE is part of the Prairie Promises series. I thought it sounded like a cute story, but it was kind of jarring bouncing from one family to another’s point of view. I did like Adam’s attraction for Opal and thought it a shame that the two families hated each other so much. If you like Hake’s books you will enjoy THE BRIDE BACKFIRE. $4.06. 288 pages.
