Bridegrooms by Allison Pittman

I am really enjoying Blogging for Books! I have been introduced to new (to me) authors that I am so excited to find and since you can choose books in categories of your interest, it's mostly been a match made in heaven!

I've been excited to find some wonderful choices under the categories of Christian fiction, suspense and romance! Here's one of the books that I have really enjoyed reading:

ISBN: 9781601421371
Categories: Fiction - Religious

From the publishers:

It Only Takes an Instant for Love to Strike!

Tragedy hits the Allenhouse family on a hot summer night in Ohio when a mother of four vanished. Eight-year-old Vada virtually grew up overnight and raised her three younger sisters while her father lost himself in his medical practice in the basement of their home.

Now, Vada is a grown woman, still making her home with her father and sisters. Her days are spent serving as an errand girl for Cleveland’s fledgling amateur orchestra; her evenings with Garrison Walker, her devoted, if passionless, beau.

Dizzying change occurs the day the Brooklyn Bridegrooms come to town to play the Cleveland Spiders and a line drive wallops the head of a spectator. The fan is whisked to the Allenhouse parlor, and questions swirl about the anonymous, unconscious man.

Suddenly, the subdued house is filled with visitors, from a flirtatious, would-be sports writer to the Bridegrooms’ handsome star hitter to the guilt-ridden ballplayer who should have caught the stray shot. The medical case brings Dr. Allenhouse a frustration and helplessness he hasn’t felt since his wife’s disappearance. Vada’s sisters are giddy at the bevy of possible suitors. And Vada’s life is awakened amid the super-charged atmosphere of romantic opportunity.

I just heard about this book recently and it sounded really good.

I've never hear of blogging for books.
