THE BRIDE NEXT DOOR (3) by Winnie Griggs: Determined to make a home for herself and start her own business, Daisy Johnson moves into the building next door to Everett Fulton’s newspaper office. Everett has trouble understanding Daisy’s optimistic attitude toward life, yet he finds himself drawn to her. Daisy doesn’t understand why Everett seems to view life so cynically. She longs to help him find the joy in living. Unfortunately, a marriage forced upon them by gossip is not the way she planned on doing it. This second in Griggs’ Texas Grooms series is a sweet romance that brings together a delightful optimist and a likable pessimist, although once again a hero and heroine are forced into marriage because of town gossip and rumor.
