Andrew McCammon, a widower, knows that he shouldn't be nervous going in for an interview with the stake president. They are friends, after all, and have worked together closely over the past few years. But something is still niggling at the back of his mind . . .
In one sentence, his stake president deals Andrew two of the biggest shocks of his life: First, he is called to be the new bishop of his ward. The second is even more alarming — he has three weeks to meet a woman, fall in love, and get engaged.
What follows is a sweet, hilarious, and thoroughly enjoyable story of one man's faith and obedience, intertwined with a series of delightfully bizarre events that guide the right woman to him. Readers of all ages will love this rollicking, exciting novel.
About the Author

I loved this book. I read it in one night, then read it again a few days later! This was the first novel I've read in several years. I'm waiting for my own 'bishop'. It gave me hope.
If you love humor, romance, family history and the gospel this book is for you!

The Bishop's Bride is a well written novel that will entertain you and keep you reading. It is not a 'sappy romance' or a 'fluff novel'--the characters make you love them, the adventures and situations are realistic, the lessons learned are so true and valuable. I couldn't put it down.
Darling! Light and fun for the perfect summer read.

DARLING! I'm a very picky reader, and I very rarely buy a book outright without a good, solid recommendation from a friend, but I went ahead and bought this. Am I ever glad I did! What a darling story. Andrew's grown kids were such characters, and I quickly grew to love all the characters in the story. Even the meddlesome, frustrating police chief was so well written that he seemed very real. This author did a fabulous job with characterization and pacing, and this story made for a delightful summer read. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I wish it could have been longer. It's pretty short, as far as LDS novels go. ( Still, I highly recommend this one! I can't wait to see what Elizabeth Watkins has coming up next. )

Too sickly sweet; reminds me of why I don't read LDS fiction.
This is silly!

What is wrong with us? Have we arrived to the point that we read this stuff? For what? Seriously, if a fiction writer is teaching us things 'we didn't know about the Church,' we're in trouble. This Church isn't built on fiction, but it seems more and more members are spending their time writing and reading fiction. Time would be better spent understanding doctrine and applying it in their daily lives, rather than dreaming up silly plots involving men being called as bishop as long as they get married in three weeks. Please!

This book is amazing! I loved it from the moment I picked it up. I loved all the people Elizabeth Wathkins made up. She did such a great job on making it real for us to read and believe that we were watching the story from afar. Its a good read for a day when you just feel down and need something to pick you up. It taught me new things I didn't know about the church and that was worth it all.

This is a fun read, perfect for those moments when you just want to escape reality and the stress of every day. The author did a wonderful job bringing her characters to life, including the secondary characters who added much of the humor. Great job, Beth!
The storyline was great - but the book itself was below par.

I bought the book because I loved the supposed storyline.... It just fell flat to me. It also just seemed to veer off the story... I finished it, but would not recommend it. It didn't flow at all.
Ok..but no second reads for this one.

Well, It was an ok book. It seems like the book try to show that the Lord provides but it seems to forget we also have to work for it and I did not think the bishop to be worked for it. I was hoping to see him actually go out on dates and find some funny stories from it and the heroine of the story seems to be this great great woman perfect in everything she touches which makes me wonder if she was so perfect why never married? It was ok but not a library keeper. Sorry.
