Manning Brides Book Review

I was excited to get to the second book in the series The Manning Brides: Marriage of Inconvenience\ Stand-In Wife by Debbie Macomber.  It was just as entertaining as the first book in the series but this time I knew going in that it was going to be about two brides based on the title so I was interested to find out what was going to happen in these stories.

Rich Manning and Jamie Warren have always been friends - and nothing but friends. However, that changes when she asks him to father the child she so desperately wants. Rich agrees - if she'll marry him. Because he thinks their Marriage of Inconvenience could become a real marriage instead.  Paul Manning, a grieving widower with three small children, turns to Leah Baker for help and comfort. When that comfort begins to grow into something else, Paul discovers that he wants more than a Stand-In Wife.

Although the descriptions online seem to be lacking description on this book, I don't know if I ever would have read it with the description that I found on Amazon.  I loved watching Rich and Jamie figure out how they could both have a child without the romantic entanglements that they went to a lawyer to draw up paperwork.  It was great to see them let their guards down and fall in love.  Paul Manning was the first Manning to get married but he was trying to make his new life after the loss of his wife after the birth of their third child.  He was barely holding it together when Leah came to live with him and brought joy into their life again.  Both Rich and Paul working on making their lives more full with a family and love.  The journeys are amazing to follow and page turners.  I hope that you check out this book and all the other books in the Manning series.  I know that you will enjoy them as much as I did!
