The Substitute Bride (The Great Wedding Giveaway #7)

The Substitute Bride

This is  a sweet and short romance based in the charming town of Marietta. It is the third book that I have read in the series, but my first by Kathleen O' Brien and I enjoyed her dual point of view writing style, but I did wish that she separated the different POV's better because she was just switching between characters in the same page without proper separation and this made it very confusing. I liked Drew's character because he was sweet and romantic, but I do not think he was realistic as he fell back in love with her again instantly. Marly's character was strong and independent and I loved how she stood up for herself and her beliefs even when life kept on pushing her down. The chemistry between Drake and Marly was nice, but nothing spectacular. I did feel that the author was rushing the book from the middle and she did not explore the characters more which resulted in a lack of character depth. Overall this is a sweet and short read with a lack of character depth and a rushed story line. 

Rating: 3/5


Marly Akers returns to Marietta jilted by her fiance and pregnant and the blow to her ego comes when she begins to work for the family newspaper  and shares a tiny apartment with her disapproving mum. 

She thinks that things definitely cannot get any worse, but then her teenage crush Drake Everett who broke her heart decides to make a re-acquaintance. Drake these days seems to be a different as he is now funny, sweet, decent and supportive and Marly realizes that she could fall for him again.
