Jamie Farrell The Husband Games Misfit Brides of Bliss Book One, a fun small-town contemporary wedding novel

Praise for Jamie and THE HUSBAND GAMES:

“Natalie and CJ’s journey toward love, filled with scenes of high hilarity and vivid emotion, resonates with warmth and realism. A cast of quirky characters adds just the perfect touch to a heartwarming comedy of errors.” -Starred Publishers Weekly Review

“(S)he is a master at the small town dynamic.” -Wendy S. Marcus, award-winning author of SECRETS OF A SHY SOCIALITE

It’s guaranteed that you’ll find humor in all of (Jamie’s) books, but the beauty of it is that the author always strikes the perfect balance between humor, pure emotion, and a wonderful story.” -Reader Marilyn on Goodreads

After Natalie Castellano’s marriage imploded on the field of the Husband Games in Bliss, Illinois, the Most Married-est Town on Earth, the last job she expected to inherit was planning the fiftieth anniversary of her hometown’s unique Games. But with her mother’s unexpected passing, that’s exactly what Natalie’s doing. And the position demands that she play nice with CJ Blue, the man who ultimately caused Natalie’s marital demise.

Winning Bliss’s Husband Games and being crowned Husband of the Year was the brightest spot in CJ’s short marriage. Since his wife’s untimely death, he’s taken himself around the world, hiding from his grief. But now, family obligations have him trapped in Bliss, where he’s been invited to participate in the Games and humiliate himself in the name of closure. The whole town wants him to play. The whole town, except one. And he can’t decide what bothers him more—that Natalie doesn’t think he belongs in the Games, or that she’s right.

These two would make great enemies. But all games aside, the more they find themselves in close quarters, the harder it is to deny their mutual attraction. She’s battled Bliss’s bridal brigade, and he’s jumped out of airplanes and soared over waterfalls, but now they’re both facing the biggest risk of all: taking another chance on love.

A Yankee Lady Stuck in the South

Divorced wasn’t a label Anna Martin ever wanted.  Now she’s a thousand miles from home, underemployed, and lonely, but she’s squeezing this lemon life gave her and turning it into lemon meringue pie. Never again will she let any man—especially another military man—get in the way of her career.

A Southern Gentleman Military Officer
Jackson Davis believes in family, football, and Uncle Sam. He treats ladies right, takes his uniform seriously, and he loves his dog, but he doesn’t reckon he’s built for true love. After all, if a man good as his daddy couldn’t do it right, what chance does Jackson have?

One Undeniable Attraction
These two vulnerable souls are as different as cornbread and ketchup, but they fit together like sweet butter on hot biscuits. Short-term, they’re exactly what the other needs. But when their hearts get involved, they’re both gonna end up with a big ol’ case of Southern Fried Blues.

Trade Paperback: Amazon

Maddie Mason isn’t desperate. She’s simply tired of waiting for the universe to deliver her Mr. Perfect. So she’s turning to the dating website she created, MisterGoodEnough.com, to finally find her future.

Online matchmaking is perfect for Maddie, because:

A)   History has proven she’s a poor judge of decent husband material.

B)   The dating pool in her crumbling little hometown is all but dried up.

C)   She wants babies.


Trent Sawyer is not Mr. Good Enough material, because:

A)   Twelve years ago, he stomped the stuffing out of Maddie’s naïve little teenage heart.

B)   The man might look good in a tool belt, but she’s sure he’s up to something nefarious.

C)   He doesn’t want kids. Ever.


But if Maddie were to fall for a guy like Trent, it would only be because:

A)   When he apologizes, he apologizes big.

B)   He’s fixing their little farm town, one dilapidated home at a time.

C)   Her world is a brighter place with him in it.


So should Maddie:

A)   Go for Mr. Second Best and the family she’s always wanted?

B)   Take her Mr. Almost Perfect without the babies she craves?


Either way, there’s nothing simple about settling for Mr. Good Enough.
