In the Nebraskan Territory of 1859, Gavin Miller writes home to request the hand of Miss Marguerite Chandler.

When his surprise bride comes to Buttonwood, unexpectedly followed by the very cousin he'd meant to marry, will Gavin be able to solve The Bride Blunder?

In the Nebraskan Territory of 1859, Gavin Miller writes home to request the hand of Miss Marguerite Chandler.  Unfortunately, while he never forgot Marguerite was the French word for Daisy, he’d failed to recall that the two cousins shared their grandmother’s name, and Marge was the nickname of the wrong Miss Marguerite Chandler! When his surprise bride comes to Buttonwood, unexpectedly followed by the very cousin he’d meant to marry, will Gavin be able to solve The Bride Blunder?

Editorial Reviews

The superb final book in the Prairie Promises series has romance, adventure and characters with hearts of gold putting themselves in hilarious situations-- with results they did not see coming. Hake has a gift for storytelling.

The Bride Blunder is a wonderfully written story that captures your attention from the beginning. Not only do you get Marge and Gavin’s story but you also get a bonus romance with Amos and Midge as well. Exceptional characters bring forth a heartwarming story of faith, love and survival in a tough time. I enjoyed Ms. Hake's book and am looking forward to sampling her other works.

I simply love Kelly Eileen Hake! What a talent and breath of fresh air! This takes place when the West was being developed and still wild. However, these female characters are tough as nails and dare to stand up to the men. They prove to be as brave as they are brazen. This is a Christian romance. One of the characters wrestles with her anger toward God. After all, if He is so mighty and great, why do bad things happen to good people? Have we all not wondered that before? She does learn of grace, mercy, and faith. This is an awesome book! I stayed up late to finish it. I just could not put it down. Put this on your reading list!

    Gavin Miller is now ready to ask Miss Marguerite Chandler to come to Buttonwood, Nebraska and marry him so he sends his proposal to her. Gavin Miller forgot that there are two Marguerite Chandlers though, they are cousins and both childhood friends of Gavin's, so when the proposal is received and "Daisy" has sent him an invitation to her wedding of course she knows the proposal is for "Marge". See, they are both named after their grandmother and Marge was raised by Daisy's parents because her parents have passed on.

    When Marge arrives Gavin is very surprised but does not tell her about the mix-up, she does find out as soon as she gets to his house though because his grandmother spills the beans almost immediately. Marge now refuses to marry him but Gavin insists she marry him because she accepted his proposal by coming to Buttonwood.

    When Midge Collins observes the meeting of Marge and Gavin she knows something is amiss and doesn't take long to find out what it is. She soon gets the story out of Marge and proceeds to help her. You see Midge is an observer of people, she watches, listens, and notices, in other words she spots things people don't want others to guess at. She reads expressions, registered changes in stances or gestures and wonders about things that are none of her business.

    Midge has met her match though in Amos Geer, he is also an observer and after coming to Buttonwood he sees Midge and remembers from an event four years ago, he attacked her when she tried to enter a room at Fort Bridger and now he is constantly watching and following her.

    Wonderful job Kelly, I loved this book also. I enjoyed reading about both Marguerite (Marge), and Midge. As I was reading about Midge and her belief in prayer I kept wanting to tell her that she doesn't know what Nancy was praying and that her prayer was answered. People think when they send a request to God that they should get what they want, not wanting to remember that God knows best and he answers our prayer requests that way, and we are much better off with his response.

    This series has really been enjoyable and I'm really glad I read all of the books. I would encourage you to read all three books in order to get the full enjoyment of this last book.

    I have read all the books in this series. This one was my least favorite, I think. I would have liked it better if the Midge had been a complete separate story. There was definitely enough material for each couple to have their book. Still, overall it was a really good book.

    This book has mystery, romance, God's deisgn for lives, and a way of keeping the reader interested throughout the entire book. There are some humorous times and stressful times but shows how perserverance and trust in God wins out. It shows the reader believable choices and their consequences. Gods hand in the lives of the characters are evident.

    The Bride Blunder was a good conclusion to the Prairie Promises series by Kelly Eileen Hake. While I must confess that book two, The Bride Backfire, was my overall favorite, The Bride Blunder served to wrap up a few loose ends with one of my favorite characters, Midge. I really wanted to see her find the perfect mate, and believe me, she does.

    What really disappointed me was that this was basically three stories in one, and at times, I simply lost interest. I wish that Marge and Gavin's story had been more in the forefront, but unfortunately when it was, it seemed to be the same thing churned over and over again. On the other hand, Daisy's portion of the story was really good, and I loved the determination she found in herself toward the end.

    But I've saved the best character for last....cranky Ermintrude. Well, who wouldn't be cranky all the time with a name like that?!?! Don't think for a second that she's not gonna give you a piece of her mind, even if you don't ask for it. She had so much spunk and personality that, at times, she had me roaring with laughter! Every western needs someone like her. :o)

    While this wasn't my favorite book of Kelly's, I am definitely a fan of her work. The first two books in this series were very well-written, and I'm eager to get my hands on some of her other books. The Bride Blunder gets a rating of 3 Stars.

    Any book from Kelly or her mother is worth the time to read. So much humor, well written, and wonderful story lines. I would give the first book 5 stars, the second 4, but in the 3rd book, one character whined just a little bit to much for my enjoyment. All in all, I would still by the book.
