The Quarryman's Bride Review

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started The Quarryman's Bride by Tracie Peterson since I had never read one of her books before.  I feel like Christian romance can be highly variable on quality, depth, likability of the characters, etc.  But I was pleasantly surprised with this book!

Emmalyne and Tavin are engaged to be married until tragedy strikes Emmalyne's family and she follows her father's wishes to have her stay unmarried and take care of her parents in their old age.  Eleven years later Tavin and Emmalyne meet again, and the story develops from there . . .

When I first started this book I was afraid that the main characters were going to be too perfect (which is a pet peeve of mine in fiction), and that the tension in the relationship with Emmalyne's father was going to be too tense (sometimes I feel like those tense relationship story lines go overboard).  

But I quickly started to feel like I could relate to the hero and heroine (they weren't too perfect), and I really enjoyed the development of the relationship between Emmalyne and her father.  I also felt like the author really did her research on what it would take to quarry granite in that time period, and her descriptions were all well thought-out.

I liked this book, and I finished it in about three days - it was an enjoyable read!  I would recommend it.  I will say though that I hope the author plans to write another book on the doctor, because I want to know what happens to him!  I'd love to read another one of her books.

Note: I received this book for free from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
