Here comes the bride, if she can pass chemistry.
Bronwen Oliver wants a family – the right family instead of the one she was born into which includes bickering grandparents, an image-obsessed mother, a distant step-father and a brother with a small personality complex. (He thinks he’s Jesus.)
Then Bronwen meets Jared Sondervan. He’s cute, sweet, funny, everything she wants – and he has the family Bronwen has always wanted, too. She falls head over heals in love, and when he proposes on her eighteenth birthday, she readily accepts. But as the date of the wedding gets pushed closer and closer, Bronwen begins to ask herself three questions: Is Jared really what she needs? Is Bronwen actually who she is? And is Bronwen truly who she wants to be yet? The answers are not what she expects.
Filled with quirky characters, sharp wit and enough swooning to make it a RWA® RITA® finalist and 2010 Cyblis Finalist, I NOW PRONOUCE YOU SOMEONE ELSE strikes just the right balance between humor and heartache. Ultimately, it is a story of how one teenage girl discovers her true identity by letting go of who she thought she was all along.
McCahan’s writing is engaging, and her characters are so real they’re ready to jump off the page.
This intelligent romance teaches a hard but relevant lesson about living dreams and letting them go.
