"Boomerang Bride is one of the best romance novels this reviewer has read in a long time. Top Pick."
-RT Book Reviews



When Matlida leaves her Australian home to wed Barry—the man who swept her off her feet online—she doesn’t expect to be jilted by an internet con man. Now that Barry’s out of the picture, she’s stuck in a small Wisconsin town without a friend in sight.


Along stumbles Marc, who’s begrudgingly in town for his annual family visit. He sees a bride in desperate need of a groom, but he’s not quite sure he’s the man for the job. Matilda isn’t convinced of Marc’s suitability either. But strange things happen when two strangers are stuck together in a small town with lots of time to kill. 


Fiona Lowe’s next irresistible contemporary romance, Saved by the Bride, is available for pre-order now!


Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Fiona recommends:



My love affair with romance fiction had begun and Jane Austen, with her clever wit and insight into the human condition remains a firm favorite and a comfort read when required.

Free Fridays are great....the free book may not be something I would buy to read but since it's free, I might as well give it a try!  I love my Nook Tablet.....I can download great books to read any time of the day or night (no more having to wait until I have time to go shop at a store....absolute heaven); I have also been able to download training material for many of the conferences I have attended for work.....no more heavy brief cases full of training manuals to lug thru the airport....ah ha!

I'm late to the "party", however again, I thank each and every person that contributes to Free Friday.  I read about a book a day sometimes more, and listen to books in my car.  I get them so I can try something new, so I can find new authors and so that I can support their work.  I've located and PURCHASED multiple books just because I've stumbled upon someone through this site and the library.  Would you go to the library to complain about the books it purchased?  That makes no sense to me.  And at this point, my Nook Color has approximately 1500 books on it.  I'm a huge fan and have even made suggestions on improvements to the interface for the nook app and website. 


Use your voice to be part of the solution.  And be reasonable about expectations, there are more people in the world than one person... we would all do better to remember that.

I very much appreciate those who have posted free books and I love Free Fridays.  It's always a treat to see what's available. I love that those that post free books have done the searching for me.  It saves me time and I have more books in my 'library' then I know what to do with . I LOVE that!

To Sueso and anyone else with a color Nook


I don't know anything about the old b/w nooks, but the color nooks have a port for a micro sd card, and you can use that for adding more space to your nook. I have a 32gb micro SD card in mine, and as much as I read, it will be years until I use all that space. I have over 200 songs, nearly 100 photos-wallpapers-screensavers, and nearly 1.5k books on it, and still have nearly 30gb free.


When you buy one, make sure it also comes with an adapter that will fit in a port on your computer. I have a port for mine on my laptop, but not on my current desktop. It is much easier to organize and move things around using the adapter than it is to try and do it all on the Nook with the card still inside it. It is not impossible, just harder. I am scared I will lose my adapter, so I keep it, in it's little case, in a pocket of my Nook cover, and have found a couple more here and there that I keep hidden just in case. My Micro Card stays in my Nook unless I am working on something on the card.


And take your Nook with you when you buy it, making sure it fits. If you buy online, call the place and make sure it is the correct one before you buy. A friend of mine bought 2 of them before she ended up with the correct one after I helped her pick it out and buy it from a reputable online vendor.

I am typically a reading, non-posting visitor to this board but I keep seeing an issue come up that I'd like to comment on now.   I agree that people should NOT post (whine) about the free book choice of the week under the book review section but I think that the whole review process could be improved tenfold simply by requiring reviewers to have an account name.   It appears most of the whiners are anonymous.  It is always easier to whine, be rude or make inappropriate comments when you are "covered" by anonymity.   


Even if the whiny posts were not an issue, I always tend to find it suspect on a book review when there are very few reviews but they are all 5 star, with no comments and they are all from "anonymous" posters.  It makes me wonder if friends and family (or even the author) are attempting to boost the interest level with bogus ratings.


You are not giving away your name, address and social security number by creating an account so I don't know why it would be a big deal to require it to leave a review. Just my two cents!

I'm very interested and curious about your post re: the extra card. I have one in my NOOK Color and used to be able to move books to the card easily when it was connected to the computer. But then B&N took it upon themselves to "update" the software and now there is no way to see the contents of the card - B&N admits contents are now hidden. Even if it were time-practical, downloading all my books individually to the computer and then manually moving them to the computer-connected NOOK does not work to make them visible - I tried with a few. I never understood all the discusson of rooting NOOKS until this happened. Now I completely understand why people feel they own the NOOK and should be able to view it in the form they want to use. As it is now, the only things I can see on the SD card are pictures and text files I have put there - no B&N content is visible. Have you rooted your NOOK? How are you seeing the content so you can move it around?

I am also curious about the SD card.  Are you able to place books ordered from B &Non the card (such as James Patterson, etc...)?  A very helpful worker at my local B&N told me that only non-copyrighted books and info could be placed on there.

Thanks for your help

Not anymore... The older software allowed that, but no more... Now when you connect the NOOK to the computer and open the Books window, it says the folder is empty (yet I have over 1000 books on mine), And if you can't see anything there and it appears to be empty, there is nothing to move to the SD card. With the old software version, you could see all your books - they were not easy to identify - they were listed by some long numbers (I think that might have been ISDN numbers, but I'm not sure).. But now, it all appears to be empty because the software deliberately hides it all. Same thing with the SD card's Books folder. If you were able to download to the computer desktop (which is also difficult now, but I have them al saved in a folder from earlier software versions when it was possible). Moving one at a time into the SD folder still leaves them invisible and they don't show up on the NOOK.
