Review

"It's been quite a while since this reviewer had to re-read a book because she was so involved with the story that she forgot to take notes! Isabella takes you on a wonderful,exciting ride full of intrigue, adventure, and ending with an HEA."Kitty Lane - Affaire deCoeur magazine
"Parmley's book, the 17th in the 50-book American Mail Order Brides series, is a creditable edition to the series and is sure to keep fans engaged....Parmley does a good job crafting characters whom readers will be eager to see succeed, and she keeps the plot moving with some unexpected twists and a good helping of suspense."- Bridget Keown, RT Book Reviews

Wow, this is a pulse pounding story, with suspense, action, and lots of mystery, I loved it! Isabella is on her way to meet Donald an accountant who wishes to marry her as a mail order bride. He seems nice and very much a gentleman in his letters. On the way she is almost abducted by two men but is saved by Tom, a Pinkerton agent. When she arrive to meet Donald and ends up marrying him, he is nothing like he seemed. Is it too late for her to have a happy life and good marriage, or is there hope?

Isabella married a man who changed in character as soon as they were married. She has a near abduction on her way to Donald and is rescued by a very handsome man. Tom and she hit off when he saved her from a terrible fate. She almost did not marry Donald at the altar, it would have saved her a terrible marriage even though it was a short one. Now you need to read this book to find out what happened between these three people.

Book 17 in an unprecedented series of 50 books which will represent 50 mail-order brides going to one of the 50 states in order. One book will be released every day for 50 straight days. Isabella came from Sweden to New York (where she lost both parents to illness) and then traveled to Massachusetts to work in a textile mill. The place then burns down in a suspicious manner. Isabella decides to become a mail-order bride to a man in Ohio. During the train ride Isabella is almost kidnapped but Tom (a Pinkerton agent) saves her. Isabella arrives in Ohio without any further problems. Donald Jenks is overly anxious to get married, but he won't let Isabella plan anything. He becomes someone completely different after their wedding. He plots to have her killed but Tom again steps in and saves her. This is a very good read.

Isabella is really different from the other AMOB because she is from Sweden
She may seems a bit naive but she doesn't know the American culture.
She get in a lot of trouble and that give a lot of suspense to the story.
She is very unlucky. But she is kind and does her best to be a good wife.
Donald will surprise you a lot and the wonderful Tom too.
I am really surprise to see 1 star because of the weeding night.
Not all the AMOB are clean stories and they don't deserve 1 star.
Not all the AMOB are true to Brides of Beckam and don't deserve either bad reviews.
The story is exciting and reflect all the troubles those mail order brides could get into.
Thank you for your hard work Debra Parmley

This book is from the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Bride Series and is labeled and book # 17.

Isabella is from Sweden, and she has lost her parents , and even a job where she had been working, because the factory had burnt down.

She had decided to become a mail-order bride, hoping maybe this was something she may be successful at. In doing so, she finds the handsome Donald Jenks, and he is wealthy.

The problem here, one of my favorites. We all know- trouble always comes in threes. And the three in this case-is going to be the number in the way of her happiness.

But now that Isabella thinks she has perfection, she has to have it. She doesn’t want to let anything ruin her chances at having it, and having the perfect dream.

Unfortunately, Isabella ends up being a victim on a train. Tom is the agent investigating her disappearance. Worried to death , all Isabella can think about is Donald and having their beautiful wedding and her happily ever after.

This is why I mention threes. Isabella’s disappearance is her third straw with bad luck. Will she be found? Where is she, why was she taken? And will she get her happily ever after?

To get these answers and more, you must read this five star book: “Isabella Bride from Ohio” and find out for yourself. This book is romantic, and enchanting, and will pull at your heart strings. You too will want to help Isabella and Donald, and even Agent Tom find her.

I even glanced at the other “Mail-Order Bride Series” books, and these books are very detailed and interesting. I think it is a totally clever idea to represent our fifty states like this! Kudos to whoever thought of this!

By the way, I met Debra in one of the Facebook parties, and I wanted to review this book, because I am originally from Ohio. That however, did not prejudice my review in any way shape or form.

Isabella: Bride of Ohio (American Mail-Order Bride #17)
By: Debra Parmley
4/5 stars

Isabella is a Swedish immigrant, who upon arrival in the States was separated from her parents who were quarantined because of their illness. Her parents later died while in quarantine, leaving Isabella with only a few items from them and her memories. She later went to work at the textile mill and met another Swedish immigrant, who became like her sister. The factory burned down, with no other jobs to be found, and no family to turn to, Isabella became a mail-order bride.

Isabella had a crazy train ride to Ohio, where she had to be saved by Tom, a Pinkerton detective. When she arrives, her possible husband, Donald appears to be a kind and patient man. After an outing she agrees to marry him and small things begin happening that make her wonder if Donald is as true as he made himself out to be. But at the same time, she doesn’t have much of any other choice than to marry if she can’t find other employment. And what about the connection that she forges with Tom?
