“South Carolina Brides” by Vickie McDonough

Vickie McDonough brings her readers three intriguing romances in this South Carolina novel.  

Heather can only think the worst of the man that left her cousin expecting out of wedlock–until she meets him.  How can this caring and respectful man be responsible for causing a young woman hurt?  As Heather gets closer to the situation she finds that appearances can be deceiving, for good or evil; but that with God in the picture, the truth will always prevail. 

 Hannah Madison always knew that she would marry James Reed.  It had been planned from the moment they met.  But when she meets and must help an oddly familiar stranger, she wonders if she can still go along with the wedding.  When the stranger finally remembers who he is and how he came to be hurt, their situation becomes seemingly impossible.  Will they trust God to show them the path He has for them?

Reed Bishop is responsible for everything that has gone wrong in Carina’s life.  So when the opportunity arises to avenge the wrongs, why does she hesitate?  Will she ever regain all she has lost, or will God provide in a different way for her needs?

I prefer it when the stories in a three-in-one novel intertwine, or follow one family through a few generations as this one did (though surprisingly, not quite directly).  The stories themselves were not particularly new plots or themes, but part of the fun of reading a novel is finding the variations between similar genres.  While I enjoy books that surprise me, some of my favourites are ones that are simply a variation of my favourite plot lines.  These stories drew me in and told me three exciting stories,  For me, that’s enough.
