The BridegroomsThe bridegrooms is set during the turn of the century and is about four sisters (Vada, Hazel, Althea and Lizzy Allenhouse) who were abandoned by their mother when they were very young. Their father who is a physician works in the basement of their house and he has become consumed by his work. The oldest sister Vada, must keep the family together. All the women are single and available. Vada is engaged to a lawyer, Garrison, who treats her very well. They all get excited when the baseball team called The Bridegrooms comes to town. There is an accident at the ball field and a man called Eli is hit with a stray ball and knocked unconscious. They bring him to Dr. Allenhouse and he cares for the injured man. Each of the girls has their own unique story that is intertwined into the plot.

The girls take turns caring for Eli who is unconscious for a week. Althea, who has not spoken since her mother's disappearance has an attraction for the man and sticks by his side the whole time writing poems and jotting in a journal. 

Hazel is constantly looking for love and she is sends letters all over the country looking for the perfect husband. Does she find him? I will never tell you.

The youngest sister Lizzy is very popular with the boys and they are always following her around. Does she meet the right man? I guess you have to read the book.

While the injured man is in the house, Vada is attracted to the star pitcher of the team and she has to make a difficult decision. What are the girls to do? Will they find Mr. Right? Those questions are answered in the book.

My thoughts-

When I first looked at the cover, I thought that the book was about four girls looking for grooms, and I was surprised to find out that it was the name of a baseball team. The book was beautifully written and was easy to read. All of the characters had their own story that was combined perfectly and I was able to connect to each character. Romance novels are not my favorite genre but I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading more of Allison Pittman’s novels.
