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

ABOUT THE BOOK:
She 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.
