    The Bowen Bride starts out with a fairly typical story of a teenager who wants out of her small town Katie is very close to her dad and grandmother but she is still SO ready to be out of Bowen She s applied to out of state colleges, without telling her family, but she is still very respectful of her Oma and listens to the old stories This book is based on this one story, about Oma s magic thread and how it has been passed down thru the generations That s about all I can say without giving any spoilers and I really can t do the story as much justice as the author did.Fast forward a few years and Katie is back in Bowen, running a bridal dressmaking shop just like Oma did for oh so many years A man walks into her shop one day that she sorta knew of growing up but as he was a few years older, they had never spoken His name is Jared Porter and he finds himself standing outside Katie Schmidt s shop, on a mission for his teenage daughter The book is about Katie and Jared and a growing relationship between the two For two people with very different coming of age stories, at the heart of it, they are both alike in that they have deep, crushing feelings about themselves that each has to work thru in order to move forward Their interactions are combustible, at least that s what my imagination created I loved them both but Jared should be the poster boy for being a terrific father and human being Katie s no slouch, that s for sure, but my heart belonged to Jared.Really liked the book, even if I wanted to pull Mandy, Jared s daughter, aside quite a few times and let her know my thoughts on how lucky she was to have a dad like Jared.

    Small town romance fan Oh are you in for a treat This first installment of the Bowen, Nebraska series delivers all the heart, all the family, all the warmth, all the MAGIC that readers expect and then some.Katie runs The Bowen Bride, a local bridal shop started by her grandparents, but it wasn t always her dream Once upon a time, she sought bigger cities, brighter lights, and grander notorietybut sometimes what we WANT and what we NEED are two different things It took stepping out of the dream for her to find her heart s true desireand even that revelation is about to be reevaluated as a second chance at true love comes her way I adored her character and how she lived with an open heart True, she protected herself from unnecessary pain, but who could blame her with the sorry excuse for a significant other she had the first time around Her heart of gold shone through in everything she did and it was simply a matter of time before someone worthy of knowing it saw its shine Now, speaking of that second chanceJared is a single father and locally renowned craftsman, yet despite the life he s built for his family of two, underneath it all, he still battles feelings of inadequacy You d never guess it to look at him and no, we re not simply blinded by his obvious good looks , but this jack of his trade has a heart bruised as easily as yours or I, yet it also contains the strength to raise his daughter solo, build a good life for them both, and protect them come what may despite what small town looks or gossip may follow him It d take a woman of substance, a person of character, someone with a heart of gold and perhaps a jilted past of her own to truly GET himthough I m certain the news of his daughter getting married, he could have done without I really liked his character as well, for all the obvious reasons and perhaps a few easier to see once you ve read the story He s genuine, doesn t play games, but isn t crass or harsh as the case COULD be No, he didn t let himself grow bitter from his circumstances, only BETTERif he could only see that in himself.What begins as a partnership of convenience, gradually turns into genuine friendship with obvious sparks hinting at the possibility for The question isare either of them ready to explore what could be Readers will enjoy the gentle flirting and smile inducing fun along the way as they dance ever closer to answering that question, while the flash forward at story s end allows for a potential HEAhey, I m not spoiling the surprise ecopy received for review

    The Bowen Bride is a wonderful, heartfelt, sweet romance set in rural Nebraska Katie received an old magical spool of thread from her grandmother with directions to always use it in any bridal gown she makes After she escapes to Boston for college and a brief career as a costume designer, she returns back to her home town and reopens her grandmother s bridal shop What happens next is all about family, relationships, trust, and small town gossip The story is easy to read and lighthearted I love the characters and setting and the slight bit of magic.

    I loved this story of romance in a small town in Nebraska between a thirty plus couple who have not had good luck with love in their past Katie Schmidt returns home to Bowen after leaving for college in Boston to open a bridal design shop There are many who claim that the gowns purchased from this shop possess good luck, but Katie doesn t really believe it Jared Porter is a single father who would do anything for his daughter, even going to a bridal shop to discuss gowns with the pretty Katie Soon, they are meeting often and realize that there is an attraction and not sure if it is a wise idea to pursue it or not I received a copy of the book in exchange for a review all opinions are my own.
