A Warm Welcome to Patty Froese!

I'm delighted to introduce you to Patty Froese. Patty recently entered my world as a writer friend and I've quickly grown to admire her passion for the stories she writes! Her latest release is one that touches a chord in my heart because it deals with the topic of marriage. 

Let's find out more about her book, Legally Wed, as well as her thoughts on its creation:

Legally Wed was inspired by friends.

I put it out there on my Facebook fanpage, asking what my readers wanted to see me write. The feedback was unanimous--these women wanted to see a story about marriage, a story that started after the "I do" and dealt with real married people.

And that was the beginning of this novel, which follows two couples: one that was supposed to be divorced, and one that was supposed to be perfect.

Marriage is hard work--there's  no way around it. Falling in love is the easy part, but staying in love and growing closer and closer over the years involves careful decisions. We don't always make the right decisions, and sometimes one side of that marriage is more committed than the other. Life is never ideal and picture perfect simply doesn't exist.

So what happens when your husband leaves you for the brassy secretary? And what happens when a marriage you thought you'd put behind you ends up being not-so-over after all?

I'm thankful for the women who communicate with me while I write. Not only do they keep me company, but they inspire some great writing!

Come by and check out my latest novel, Legally Wed. I don't think you'll be disappointed.


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.

For better or for worse, when you’re legally wed, things can get complicated.


Patty Froese lives in central Canada where the winters are long and cold--giving her excellent excuse to stay in and write without guilt. She's a tea drinker, a novel writer, an adoring wife and mom, and she's pretty sure she's a British person born in a shivering, Canadian body. She loves rain, royalty, pretty knick knacks and three square meals a day. No dieting here!
If you'd like to find her online, come by her blog: She's also on Facebook:, and whenever someone gives her a new like or follows her blog, she sighs in delight.

Legally Wed is her ninth novel to be released.


Congratulations on the release, Patty! I can't wait to grab a copy!

  1. Patty, congratulations on the release of Legally Wed. Especially after taking a journey through marriage in the pages of Devotion, I'm eager to read your story. You're so right that marriage is never easy - but it's so rewarding. However, those vows we take, that covenant we take before God, is so important - but we've let that truth deteriorate as a culture, which is incredibly sad! I'm all about supporting marriage! Blessings to you and much success!
