Thus begins the awkward post-wedding "courtship" of Ben and Allie. Thin and threadbare from a life of hardship, the Jordan ranch soon discovers a diamond-in-the-rough as hard-working Allie shows competency in everything she puts her hands to. Faithful ranch hand Ben goes out of his way to provide Allie with every comfort and personal possession she never thought she deserved.
In a delightful continuation of the Baker City Brides series, all of the close-knit and lovable characters make appearances, as well as the author's penchant for introducing some colorful and humorous animal friends.
As featured in the title, one of Allie's gifts is her skill at creating bobbin lace, a gift her mother taught her. This reader/reviewer had to "Google" bobbin lace to figure out what made it so special. This ancient lace-making technique creates breath-taking beauty and gives Allie a means to support herself. It is the author's reverence for historical detail that helps give these stories such color, charm, and significance.
For me, this is the author's finest romantic example of two deserving people as they struggle from being total strangers to that emotional plateau of realizing love for one another. As in the author's story of Bertie, from the Pendleton Petticoats series, a blind-sided zinger of a surprise awaits the reader that changes everything for Ben, his bride and the Jordan ranch.
Although this story stands alone, a full appreciation of the previous events is realized in reading ALL of the stories in the Baker City Brides series. Just when I thought author Shanna Hatfield could not possibly out-do herself in this series, she manages to up her game still another notch.
Ben went into town to get supplies for the ranch, never expecting to come home a married man. And then he managed to run out after the wedding and get back to the ranch without realising he left his bride behind. How does he sort this out?
This was a story that caught my interest from the start and kept it right to the end. Best read in one setting, so don't start it late at night! Definitely a book I would recommend.
Allie has had a tough life and knows how to work hard and take care of herself and those around her. Due to the harsh conditions of her childhood home, she answers an ad to be a mail order bride. Unfortunately, her prospective groom is a horrible man that doesn't even show up to meet her. Thankfully, Ben along with many of the wonderful folks from Baker City intervene before it's too late.
This story is filled with sweet romance, funny moments, and a fantastic twist I never expected! Like all of Shanna Hatfield's books, I will definitely read it again and again!!
It was an enjoyable story, liked there was a very unexpected mystery, and it solved, right at the very end. So glad I did purchase it. Loved that the old old Sears & Roebuck catalog was mentioned. I remember back in 1940's as a very small child mesmerized by the pictures in the ones mom had.
