What Happens After "I Do"?

Today I’m hosting novelist Patty Froese in honor of the release of her latest title, Legally Wed. Read what Patty has to say about the days after “I do” …

Marriage is complicatedthere's no way around it. When we get married, we have visions in our heads of mornings snuggling, long walks together, perfect understanding and the best of intentions. While those lovely things are a part of marriage, real life tends to worm its way in there and a very different picture evolves.

Hurried breakfasts, a quick peck goodbye, misunderstandings, grumpy mornings, stress from work and bills piling up. A romantic evening can miss the mark when he falls asleep after a hard day at work. A planned romantic Christmas can turn less-than-romantic when the in-laws show up unannounced. Keeping the romance in a marriage turns into WORK.

Necessary work. 

Stories of romance often focus on that time before the "I do," that exhilarating process of falling in love.  But what about after the wedding? What about the lifetime spent together, growing together, learning to love and laugh even when bumps derail all our picture-perfect plans?

Legally Wed is a story about romance after the "I do." Following two couples, we see marriage—the real kind. One couple was supposed to be over, and the other couple was supposed to be perfect. Neither get what they expect! When you're legally wed, you're on the ride of your life!”

Book blurb:
Author Patty Froese
When Rich McConaughey comes back to town, divorce papers in hand, he's in for more than he bargained for. Lisa Young, the woman he was married to for six months, hasn't changed a bit. His mother has though... she's gone from matronly to meow, and his father has taken off with the secretary. Does anything last anymore?

Lisa Young feels chained to the hardware store her family has run for generations. How can she tell her father that she hates the family business? When Rich walks back into her store asking her to finalize a divorce she thought was behind her, she thinks that the answer is to sign on the dotted line and move on. Except, Rich isn't making it so easy... and God has other plans.
