Drew knows that Kimberly blames him for her brother's tragic death. But to single dad Drew, Kimberly feels like coming home. And despite her best efforts, Kimberly can't help falling for him.

    Ruth Logan Herne is one talented and gifted author. An Unexpected Groom was a joy to read. Kimberly Gallagher returned to Grace Haven after her Nashville, TN Country Singer Company downsized, along with the fact she was needed to assist with her mother's wedding business. One of the biggest wedding events in Grace Haven is for a potential presidential candidates daughter. Kimberly was taken by surprise when she would be dealing with security officer, Andrew Slade. Drew was a partner with the Gallagher's son/brother when he lost his life while on duty. Drew insisted everything had to be changed for the upcoming wedding. Will Drew and Kimberly be able to work together to pull the wedding off without the location and event being revealed to unwanted guests?

    An Unexpected Groom is filled characters that will charm and frustrate readers at times. The characters are well developed filled with true to life issues that they must overcome including the darling children in this fantastic story. I love all of Ruth's books and look forward to reading the entire series for Grace Haven. I had read Her Unexpected Family prior to reading this book, which is book one in the Grace Haven series. Ruth's books are filled with humor, family, children, faith, love, forgiveness and romance. A pleasure to read at all times. I received a complimentary copy of An Unexpected Groom from the author for my honest opinion which I have shared.

    The first book in the exciting new Grace Haven series, An Unexpected Groom is brimming with the author's iconic sass and vigour. A slice of life with all the gnarly bits still attached. And despite the heavy theme that encompasses the story, a lightness of hope shines through.

    Sometimes anger can mask grief and casting blame becomes a lifeline to get through the desperate hollowness that comes from losing a loved one. Kimberly has been living with that emotional turmoil for too many years. Drew's tried hard to give her space...until the two are forced to work together. Hello fireworks! Love the snappy dialogue -- the knowing glances -- the awareness that begins to grow into a crackling energy whenever they are together.

    There's great wisdom in the inspirational thread that affects so many of the characters in this novel. Learning to change what we can and leave the rest up to God isn't easy for anyone, but well worth it in the end. Add in kids and dogs and a few harrowing plot twists and the result is a captivating read.

    Verisimilitude! That's what this book had! It was so real & so delightful! If Grace Haven was a real place, I sure would want to go there and to know these people! Kids, dogs, love, and weddings are all woven together within the background of God's grace and love. This is my new favorite RLH book!

    Another book by Ruth Logan Herne that I loved! An Unexpected Groom is the first book in the new Grace Haven series. It is the story of Kimberly, an unemployed event planner who comes home to help out at her mom's wedding planning business, and Drew, a former cop turned head of private security for a senator and presidential candidate. Drew comes back to the town where he grew up to oversee the security and planning of the senator's daughter's wedding. Kimberly is responsible for the wedding planning when her mom must be out of town with her dad for his medical treatment. Drew and Kimberly knew each other since childhood when Drew and her now deceased brother were best friends then partners on the police force. With Drew's return, Kimberly and her nephew must deal with their anger at Drew over Dave's death while Drew deals with his daughter's unexpected presence and her love of the town. While I could guess how the story was going to end, I enjoyed the plot twists Ruth put in the story. I can't wait to read more books in this series.

    I did win a copy of this book through a contest on Ruth's blog. To my recollection, she didn't ask for a review in exchange for the free book. I also received a copy bought through Harlequin's Reader Service. I gave it 5 stars because I loved it so much!

    Another thing I loved was that Ruth Logan Herne dedicated this book to the officers lost in the line of duty. She noted that she is honoring those officers killed in 2014 by "using their first names for all of the male characters" in the series. One exception is Drew, the hero of this book, who is "named for or NYS Trooper A.J. Sperr, a member of her church who was gunned down in a routine traffic stop ten years ago."
