    1. The Bishop s Bride is a fun book With each crazy adventure that comes to Andrew, I couldn t wait to tell someone about it I laughed my way through the entire book I am currently reading it with my husband Our checks are always sore after, due to all the laughing I hope the author writes books It was pure enjoyment.


    2. I thoroughly enjoyed The Bishop s Bride I thought this was an absolutely delightful romp It was a quick read, had a lot of laughs interspersed with the story of how a widower finds a new bride as the most important duty of his upcoming calling of bishop of a new ward, as he is told he has to find a wife in three weeks Andrew McCammon is being called, as the stake is being changed Andrew doesn t know how his adult children will react to this new scenario Even the police chief gets into the fray, [...]


    3. Andrew McCammon has been a widower for about 3 years and learns he is about to be called as Bishop leader of a local LDS congregation Further, he needs to be married and has three weeks to be engaged or serious about someone.Well, things fall into place, as you knew they would The book is somewhat predictable in the outcome, but the events along the way are somewhat unpredictable Remember the Love Boat Well, all things seemed bleakest at the half way point and this book copies this formula I wou [...]


    4. I read LDS romances pretty much as fun escapist fluff, and that is what I was hoping for from this one Though I found the set up a little over the top, I figured I would roll with it and see how it worked out Unfortunately, this was all so contrived Which still could have been saved if this had a little less lesson disguises as a story to it Andrew McCammon has three weeks to fulfill one aspect of his upcoming calling as bishop get married Which works out when Jeanette s house burns down Ensue a [...]


    5. I listened to this book on tape I could not believe anyone could get away with publishing something that was so clearly contrived There were so many times when I thought to myself Where do these people live And, I live in Mormon country I like it here, but we are real people The characters in this book are so perfectly set up having accomplished every stereotype and Mormon expectation The book was full of side notes covering all the bases I found there were a few good descriptions or moments in [...]


    6. After starting this little novel, I had to make myself keep reading to finish it I have read several LDS novels in the past and they have been interesting, not too churchy , but this one was so cheesy and so very simplistic, that I just about gagged So glad the widower who was called to be the bishop and told by the stake president to find a wife in three weeks was able to find the dear sister who just moved into the ward, who just happened to be a expert geneologist, who loved the same kinds of [...]


    7. this book is about a man Andrew McCammon who gets called to be bishop He lost his wife susan 3 years ago and the stake president says that he has to be atleast engaged within 3 weeksat day a sister Jannette Parkinson came back to the ward after her parents passed away the sunday she was speaking about family history her parents house which she lived inwas on fire and is to damaged to live in she spends alot of time with the mccammon family and loves all the kids and grandkids andrew has they fal [...]


    8. Widower Andrew McCammon doesn t date because he doesn t think he could ever find someone as wonderful as his first wife When his Stake President calls him to be a Bishop, the calling comes with a catch he has 3 weeks to find a wife.It really is as ridiculous as it sounds, but I enjoyed this novel Great if you are looking for a quick, fun read It s LDS fiction, and Bill read it and then poked all kinds of holes through the plot and mocked me for reading it There is a sequel that I will also read [...]


    9. Andrew McCannon has just been called to be the new bishop One condition he has to get married, or at least engaged, before he can begin his calling And he has three weeks In no time at all, he finds the perfect woman, gets the go ahead from his adult children, and falls in love But he can t seem to find the perfect moment to propose.I liked that the story starts off with the man, instead of the woman, as usually happens in a romance The characters are likeable But the premise is kind of hard to [...]


    10. This was a good story, however I wish the author expanded and explained All the events and decisions the characters made seemed to happen too fast and left me wondering if they published her roughdraft by mistake It definitely could be been longer and some of the plot seemed to happen out of no where There would be times where an event would happen that there would be no explaining of or no build up to It just happened and then it was overjust like that Drove me nuts at the end really Other th [...]


    11. The cover is misleading I needed a book to take along on a road trip and thought this looked cute I was expecting the story to be about people my age in their 30s as depicted by the cover photo, but the characters are actually late 40s, early 50s That s not a bad thing, just unexpected The story overall was cute Andrew has been called as a bishop but he is widowed his wife died three years earlier and the stake president told him he had three weeks to find a wife There s really no surprise in ho [...]


    12. The cover and title of this book didn t attract me At all I glanced at it in stores and in the library and rolled my eyes as I chuckled to myself Last month, a friend recommended this book to me when I asked for a funny book that wouldn t have me rolling my eyes She was right.There was plot and character here than I generally give this genre Predictable moments, yes, but that s what an escape read is for It is safe And it has some pretty funny moments I love it when I can laugh out loud over a [...]


    13. A high council member is called to be bishop the only problem being that he is a widower and to be a bishop he has to be married He has a week to find a wife and then he meets Janette She is single and available and resently homeless because the drug dealers that live in the townhome next to her burned down the unit She stays with the RS president who helps the two come closer by driving her to the solitude of Andrew McCammon s house so she can continue her geneology research They marry and go o [...]


    14. Wow I don t know what I was really expecting from this book, but it was far worse than I could have ever imagined The story was so far fetched that nothing about it was believable I am not sure how the author meant us to take it, if she was kidding and knew that the storyline was ridiculous or if she was being serious I basically skimmed the last part of the book just to finish reading There is a sequel to this book which I have no intention of reading.


    15. this book is really funny i really liked it i can relate because my dad is the bishop and they would never call a person to be bishop when their not married in the book the bishop has to find a bride in three weeks before he is set appart and it just so happens that a woman in his ward needs help because her house burnt down so the bishop to be is helping her out while falling in love with her it is soo funny.


    16. So I was thinking this would be a romance chick flick type book, and it s really not so much I still liked it, it just wasn t what I was expecting However there were some good moments in the story that made me glad I read it I was surprised to find out that the main characters were in their late forties, I was assuming they would be in their 30 s It was just the light hearted read I was needing that day.


    17. Tongue in cheek LDS humor Delightful book At first I started reading it as serious and wasn t sure But once I relaxed and laughed I really enjoyed it Had to read the twins phone call to my husband and kids A 50 year old widower is called to be a bishop but must be married, or close to it within three weeks In a fun manner it deals with the philosophy that if God asks you to do something, he will help you.


    18. Watkins takes an implausible, but not impossible, situation and makes it work through her interesting characters and credible plotting I really enjoyed the characters of Andrew and Jeanette and the situations and people that contrive to bring them close together I also love almost any book whose protagonist Jeanette is a family history lover, as I am Highly recommended for those who enjoy LDS fiction.


    19. This sounded like a cute book from the description However, it was so cheesy at first that I almost stopped reading it Everyone was too perfect I decided to keep going and, amazingly, it got a little interesting everyone stayed perfect, though, except her neighbors I would only recommend it if you re really bored and it s the only book available to you.


    20. This author assumes everyone reading it is LDS I can imagine a lot of people being really confused I just read it for book club, and the author was actually there she s a friend of mine s mom The book was ok The romance was pretty predictable, but there were a lot of other surprises in the book My favorite parts were the geneology stories, believe it or not.


    21. Andrew McCammon has been a widower for about 3 years when his interview with the stake president reveals that he s about to be called as the bishop of his ward, and has 3 weeks to find a wife or at least get engaged.This is an enjoyable read with a few twists and turns Not earth shaking, but fun to read.


    22. I really did enjoy this book It s a fun read Probably never going to be a great read, but I enjoyed reading it The parts where they are doing Genealogical research were fun for me, especially when the person they were looking for spent time in Virginia City, NV, where our Great Great Grandfather, John Percival Jones, spent some time gaining his fortune Very fun


    23. A cute story, but so unbelievably cheesy This book is one of the best examples of why I m not normally a huge fan of LDS fiction It was a really quick read, but I may have rushed through it just to get it over with Though other people may love it My mom absolutely loved it and forced it upon me, but she s a big fan of cute, cheesy literature.


    24. I read this book for my Book Club I wish I had bought the CD instead of the book I think I would have enjoyed the story if I was listening to it while running errands or something else useful I could never suspend my dis belief I kept saying to myself Yeah, right I kept wanting to sleep or quilt instead of read.


    25. I ve been discovering the joys of my local library lately I had forgotten how many authors there are out there, as I mainly tend to read new books from the same authors.When I picked up this book at the library yesterday, I noticed that there is another book that follows it I can t wait to continue reading of the McCammon family s story


    26. This was such a funny book It really tickled my funny bones It was clean, refreshing and delightful to read It s great to see this fun fiction available through all these awesome LDS authors It s cute, romantic and really makes you stop and think I loved it and would reccomend it to everyone


    27. Picked this book up at a free book exchange at church It s totally cheesy but I still loved it Great brain candy read I read it in about a week just reading a little bit every night At first I wasn t sure about it but then I got hooked There were twists than I expected considering it was sort of predictable.


    28. Predictable and gentle read A Widower is called as a new Bishop and is given 3 weeks time to find a wife I don t often read LDS novels because they seldom are really good stories or writing There was nothing objectionable just the simplicity of knowing all will work out.


    29. This was a very funny and uplifting book I really enjoyed reading it It touched my heart and made me think about some things If you are looking for a easy read and a good book I suggest reaching for this one.


    30. This book was really predictable There was no controversy in anything You knew exactly what was going to happen from the very beginning of the book It would be better if there was something in there to throw you off or make you nervousbut nothing.
