Lovers are reunited in a murder mystery. Sept. 13 1999
By "beawriter" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Contemporary romantic suspense General Setting: Modern Day Texas-- Two years before, Kirsten Cowan left Adam Brand standing at the altar while she married the richest and most hated man in town. Adam escaped to New York to forget Kirsten, and to make his fortune. Back in town, he is helping out his brother, Sheriff Garrett, when Kirsten calls. Adam doesn't want to stop hating Kirsten, but when she tells him she's standing in a room with her dead husband at her feet, the old protective feelings surface. Kirsten claims she is innocent, but when Sheriff Garrett and his brother, Adam, arrive, they find Kirsten bent over her dead husband's body with a gun in her hand. She tells them she shot at the killer. While Sheriff Garrett and Adam believe her, all the evidence points to Kirsten. Adam has to find a way to save Kirsten from going to jail but that means going against his big brother, the man who raised him and his siblings after their parents were killed.
The author has created a story filled with danger and adventure as well as romance. The author's skill is evident as the characters take on a life of their own and involve the reader in the suspense. The story flows smoothly with startling twists and turns. Both Kirsten's and Adam's points of view are used and the reader feels compassion for both of them as they are caught up in a web of suspicion. As the situation worsens, and all seems lost, Kirsten and Adam find solace in each other's arms. This is one romantic hero readers will fall in love with. I've never been to Texas, but the author brought the ruggard landscape to life. Maggy Shayne is a talented writer with a knack of pulling the reader into the story whether she's writing a time-travel, or a contemporary romance. I look forward to reading the other four books in this series.

A mixed bag Aug. 31 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bad title aside, THE BADDEST BRIDE could do a lot worse. Unfortunately, it does "do worse" at some parts, but all together this is a good romantic mystery with original twists. Five stars for a novel that strives to be different than some formula romance novels. Three stars for an unbelievably unrealistic resolution that rains on this book's parade. Kirsten's past (her huge secret) is indeed too huge to be forgiven so easily by Adam, the man Kirsten has always loved. And it takes away from the seriousness of what has plagued Adam for much of his life.

Not up to par Sept. 19 2007

I didn't think much of Kirsten in "The Husband She Can't Remember", because of the way she acted with Ben, her best friend's husband. The secret looks, whispered conversations and the incident at the DoJo. Unfortunately, my opinion of her didn't change in this book.

Questions: If Kirsten and Adam were together since they were 17, and their aborted wedding was 2 years ago, that would have made them 32 at the time. Why wait 15 years to get married?

She literally left Adam at the altar; in front of ½ the town. Did she leave him a note or anything?

Why didn't she just go to Adam instead of marrying Cowan and tell him what happened? She knew the Brands would make sure her father was protected no matter how they felt about her. Instead she humiliated Adam, lost the respect of his family and stuck her dad in a nursing home for two years. She threw her marriage and her wealth in Adam's face every chance she got.

When the Texas Rangers told her not to take a shower as she was covered in her husband's blood, and evidence, she was so arrogant that she did it anyway.

It made no sense for Adam to forgive her so easily, and end up apologizing to her because she was a liar. It wasn't what she did when she was practically a kid, although that was really awful, that was the worst but all the lies that came after. He apologized for not going after her two years ago when she married another man. Why would he?

Kirsten was not a likeable or honorable person. Only read this one if you're reading the series.
This is a very good romantic/ suspense story. May 7 2014

I really liked this book, although I though Adam forgave Kristen way to easily. I never like Kristen after what happened with Penny in the last book, although her actions did help save her life. But Kristen comes off as a 'Devil may care' type of person. She'll do whatever she pleases, and to hell with what ever anyone thinks, or what the consequences may be. Out of all of the books written in this series so far, I think this is my least favorite. Still very good, just my least favorite one out of the bunch.

Don't get me wrong; the plot line, the suspense, the mystery, and the romance parts are all really good. I just have a problem with the character of Kristen. Now Adam and the rest of them.....I love them to death.
