Review: Proxy Bride by Katy Paige (The Lindstroms #1)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.

Writing under her pen name of Katy Paige for her sweet romance line, Katy Regnery launches her new series about a family up in Gardiner, Montana. Readers' introduction to The Lindstroms is by way of the youngest sibling and the only female, twenty-four-year-old Jenny. Her story starts when she agrees to be her best friend's proxy for her wedding. Paired with her is the groom's proxy and cousin, Sam Kelley, about four or five years her senior. They don't get off on the right foot, what with Sam showing up an hour late. This forces to have to wait till the following week to get the wedding of two people who mean a great deal to them over and done with. In that short amount of time, can the school teacher from the country and the vice president of a financial investment company find some middle ground to, at the very least, get along or could they end up finding something unexpected...like love?

My favorite thing about this book was the concept, which one of the more original story lines I've come across in years. For you curious people out there, let me save you the trouble of Googling--yes, Montana does, indeed, allow for double-proxy marriages. Take that idea and add in the whole country versus city angle and this series starter made for some heartwarming reading. Jenny and Sam had their first impressions of each other, and they weren't exactly all that great, so seeing them discover the most real version of the other person was part of the charm of the book. As opposite as these two may have been, I loved that they not only found things they had in common but also realized that their differences weren't enough for them to not have a future together. This was certainly a strong start to the Lindstroms series and has me looking forward to the books to come. 4.5 stars go to Proxy Bride. ♥
