Reviewed by Tanya
The youngest Prescott sister is the one that is considered the most beautiful. But, while her sisters have found their love matches the time for Amelia is running out. Not only has she strung along more than one man but the time limit for her contract is running out. If she doesn’t marry soon she will be banished from the town, and potentially sent back east. She is determined to live a life unmarried and with her “freedom” but, she is also attracted to Andrew Gallagher, who just might be the one to get her to marry. But, when Andrew hears rumors of infidelity he releases Amelia from an engagement and heads out of the territory. Upon his reconsideration and return he finds her in a precarious position with his brother Noah. What will become of the young lovely? For starters she is banished from living in the Gallagher household, and the luxuries that she become accustomed to. What will happen as she is forced to make some tough decisions?
The woman that was considered the ‘most’ beautiful of the brides has finally found her match. In this installment of the Brides of Bachelor Bay you finally see Amelia get into a precarious situation that she can’t get herself out of. How will she determine what is right and what she really wants?
While The Banished Bride is the last Prescott sister’s story it is also one that most fans of the series have waited for. Ms. Adams does a fantastic job in setting the stage for Amelia to finally have to face ‘growing up’ and determining what she really feels and desires. There are explosive interpersonal actions and reactions between Amelia, Noah and Andrew. The Banished Bride is a well written story about a woman who finally gets what she deserves.
The Banished Bride can be read as a stand-alone story but readers will miss Amelia’s back-story and not enjoy this book as much as they will, following her journey from the beginning.
