Synopsis:

Will meddling matchmakers make a perfect match?

Piper Peterson loves the small community of Holiday, Oregon. She resides there at a beautiful, old farm where she’s surrounded by animals she’s rescued. And she manages the feed store that’s been in her family for more than a hundred years. Despite her contentment with life, her grandfather’s plans to sell the store and farm leave her future up in the air. When a sly matchmaker works to set Grandpa up with the perfect woman, Piper jumps at the chance to lend a hand. But the last thing she expects is to fall in love while helping her grandpa find happiness.

Stuck at a crossroads in his life, Colton Ford can’t decide which direction to head. Then an invitation to stay at his brother’s ranch in Holiday provides an opportunity Colt can’t pass up. He hopes time spent at the Flying B Ranch will help him clear his head and sort out his life. Before long, he finds himself entangled in a matchmaking plot involving his widowed aunt and a charismatic old gent. When he agrees to give the budding romance a nudge, he has no idea the man’s delightful granddaughter will capture his heart.

A heartwarming story filled with country charm, laughter, and hope, Easter Bride is sure to bring readers the joys of budding spring and sweet romance.

As you can see if you search my reviews by author or read the list of books I’ve read on Goodreads, I really like those by Shanna Hatfield. Her stories are heartwarming, creative, and fun. It was a no-brainer that I would read Easter Bride and enjoy. . .

Neither Piper nor Colton had any intention of even falling into like with each other. Their goal was merely to get her grandfather and his aunt together. But they didn’t take meddling Matilda into consideration.

You’re heard of a “meet cute”, right? Well, I wonder if it counts if she is covered in pig and goat . . . mud. Maybe this story has a “meet ugly” or “meet stinky”. With Piper’s propensity to rescue and adopt animals, there are plenty of cute moments in this book. Especially the feed store “chick-mageddon” and the vampire bunny incident.

Yet the story is not over-the-top or ridiculous. It is heartwarming and has its share of internal struggles as Piper fights feelings of inadequacy and Colton struggles with what his future will be like when he has to leave Holiday.

If you are looking for a sweet romance that will warm your heart, this one just might fit the bill.

From the author:

Convinced everyone deserves a happy ending, USA Today bestselling author Shanna Hatfield is out to make it happen one story at a time. Her sweet historical and contemporary romances combine humor and hopelessly romantic moments with unforgettable characters.

When this farm girl isn’t writing or indulging in rich, decadent chocolate, Shanna hangs out with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.

My Notes: I have read around 30 of Shanna’s books, so that should give you a pretty good idea what I think of her writing. The average rating is 4.5 stars. My favorites have been the stand-alone books she writes, but they are all enjoyable and worth taking the time to read.
