Doctor Franklin Stein’s love life has been in a rut ever since he fell into a vat of experimental dye. Now he’s green from head to toe. Unable to go out in public without causing a stir, Franklin spends his days and nights working to reverse his condition. After all, what woman would want a green husband? But when the reclusive scientist receives an invitation to a Halloween party, it’s a chance to go out on the town and be treated like a normal man.
Becky Jensen became an internet sensation after a video of her being left at the altar went viral and holds little hope of ever finding Mr. Right. Socially awkward and more than a little afraid of being recognized as the infamous Crying Bride, Becky finds herself drawn to the man in the Jolly Green Giant costume. She strikes up a conversation hoping to hit it off with a fellow wallflower. With a few corny puns and a flaming pumpkin, Franklin charms Becky. But when two people are keeping secrets from each other, can the bond between them survive beyond one magical Halloween night? Or does Becky have what it takes to accept Franklin, green skin and all, and become the Bride of Doctor Franklin Stein?
Title: The Bride of Doctor Franklin Stein
Author: Genevieve St-Yves
Genre: Romantic Comedy (with a Halloween twist)
Published: September 7, 2018
My Rating: 4 stars
THE BRIDE OF DOCTOR FRANKLIN STEIN (note the different first and last name there) is a fun, quick read perfect for the week of Halloween reading.
Everything you need to know is in the Cover Description, to say much more would really give you no reason to go pick up this chuckle-filled Romantic Comedy (with a perverse ironic twist). I laughed and I had total empathy for both Franklin and Becky who find themselves in the spotlight for far different reasons. There’s no deep meaning here aside from seeing past the obvious to the person, simply a good story of the weirdness of life and how to deal with the outcome – by falling in love.
Go have some fun. – Enjoy.
