Review & Giveaway: The Goodbye Bride by Denise Hunter

The Goodbye BrideI loved this story! I really enjoy Denise Hunter’s books and The Goodbye Bride was no exception. The plot for this book was a great one to begin with, but the author did such an amazing job of carrying it off with little details that really brought the emotions of the characters to life for me.

Lucy Lovett was such a complex character and I felt such sadness for her. From the confusion and hurt she felt at waking up, to her new reality that didn’t include a relationship with the man she loved, to the flashbacks of her painful childhood, Lucy became a character near and dear to my heart. I don’t cry easily during novels, but the flashbacks to Lucy’s father brought tears to my eyes and an ache to my heart.

Zac was an amazing leading man. I loved that even though Lucy had wounded him horribly, he stepped up to help her. Time and again, he proved to Lucy that he was a good man. Watching his struggle and his determination to remain strong against the pull of his love for Lucy was powerful!

I thoroughly loved this book from start to finish and I am very excited to read the next book in this series!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Read on to learn about this wonderful book and then join me at the bottom of the post for a giveaway!


The Goodbye BrideShe only remembers loving him. But he can’t forget the way she left.

Following a concussion, 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.

It’s taken Zac months to move on after Lucy left him with no explanation. He’s thrown himself into his family’s farm and his restaurant business in Summer Harbor. Now Lucy’s back, vulnerable, homeless, and still in love with him. She needs his help putting the pieces together, but letting her back into his life is a risk—and the stakes are high. If he follows his heart he’ll win back the love of his life. But if her memory returns he’ll lose her all over again.


Denise Hunter2

Denise Hunter is the internationally published bestselling author of more than 20 books, including Dancing with Fireflies and The Convenient Groom. She has won The Holt Medallion Award, The Reader’s Choice Award, The Foreword Book of the Year Award, and is a RITA finalist.

Denise writes heartwarming, small-town love stories. Her readers enjoy the experience of falling in love vicariously through her characters and can expect a happily-ever-after sigh as they close the pages of her books.

In 1996, inspired by the death of her grandfather, Denise began her first book, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her husband says he inspires all her romantic stories, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

When Denise isn’t orchestrating love lives on the written page, she enjoys traveling with her family, drinking coffee, and playing drums. Denise makes her home in Indiana where she and her husband are raising three boys.

You can connect with Denise on her website, Facebook, and Twitter.
