This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

“I’ve been a longtime fan of Denise Hunter’s, and The Goodbye Bride has everything I’ve come to love about her romances: a plucky heroine with lots of backstory, a yummy hero, and a terrific setting. Highly recommended!” (Colleen Coble, USA TODAY best-selling author of the Lavender Tides and Hope Beach series)

The second book in the Summer Harbor series from best-selling author Denise Hunter!

She only remembers loving him. But he can’t forget the way she left.

Lucy Lovett can’t remember the last seven months of her life. She doesn’t remember leaving her fiancé Zac Callahan weeks before their wedding or moving to Portland, Maine. And she sure doesn’t remember getting engaged to another man. All she remembers is loving Zac more than life itself.

Zac was just beginning to get his life back on track after Lucy left him with no explanation. And now she’s back - vulnerable, homeless, and still in love with him. Has he been given a second chance with the only woman who stirs his passion and haunts his dreams?

Lucy knows she must unlock those missing months and discover why she threw everything away. And Zac knows that if he follows his heart, he’ll win back the love of his life - but if Lucy’s memory returns, his would-be bride might say goodbye forever.

“Can romance be any more complicated than a bride who doesn’t remember running away from her groom? Denise Hunter’s take on a woman’s attempt to find her way back to happily ever after again is sweetly endearing. Readers will keep turning pages, wanting to know how true love ever went so wrong...and if The Goodbye Bride gets her chance to say “I do”. (Beth K. Vogt, 2015 RITA® Finalist and author of Crazy Little Thing Called Love)

“Denise Hunter has done it once again, placing herself solidly on my must-read list! The Goodbye Bride is a tender, thoughtful look at the role memories play in a romance. The clever plot kept me up way past my bedtime - and happy to be so!” (Deborah Raney, award-winning author of the Chicory Inn Novels series)

The Goodbye Bride highlights the abandonment that so many have experienced. More importantly, within the context of a wonderful Summer Harbor romance, the author deftly illustrates that there is One who will never abandon us, and when we trust Him, we can in turn trust the people He places in our lives. All this packaged inside one heart-stopping, page-turning romance that will leave the pickiest romance reader delighted and asking for just a few more pages.” (Cara C. Putman, award-winning author of Where Treetops Glisten and Shadowed by Grace)

eh

the narrator is terrible. It's extremely hard to get into a story when it's read so monotone. The story line was okay. But again, I may have enjoyed it more if I had just read the story on my own. Waste of a credit, sadly.

Worth your time.

Loved this audible book! This was my first one. The narrator was fantastic and made listening to this book wonderful. I really enjoyed the storyline.

What a beautiful "parable"

Thank you for the beautiful story. A good "parable" of what unforgiveness, inner vows, judgements and fears do to our lives, and I pray that many people will be blessed by this book too. The narrator-ship was beautifully done too.

Story started out great...

Narrator made it very difficult to differentiate between each character. May have liked better reading it to myself.

Enjoyed the beginning, but was disappointed in remainder.

Love DH

II planned on binge reading the series, as I just loved the first book. I think I liked this one even more! Each book follows a different Callahan brother: Beau, Zac, and Riley. I knew this followed Zac, but I had no clue it was going to take the turns it did with Lucy. I loved that this was a second chance romance and that it again has a mystery behind the story. You are wondering until the reveal what happened to Lucy and what would happen when she gets her memory back. I loved it and I am moving on to the third book in the series! I love Denise Hunter and the Callahan brothers

The narrator for this story is horrible

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is pretty good for a Christian romance. But I'm from Georgia and did not care for the odd "southernisms" she tried to add in. The narrator straight read the book. No change in voice for different characters. In conversations it was sometimes difficult until the end to understand who was saying what.

Could you see The Goodbye Bride being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

An excellent follow-up to what was a fantastic first book.

This was the second book in the series, again a pleasure to listen to and confirmed my place as a fan of this author. It was lovely also to meet the characters from the first book and to see how Lucy and Aidan develops their friendship.
