Lorna Adams lost both parents when she was a young girl, and then cared for her grandmother until she died. Never allowed to attend parties or society events, she is now considered a spinster by Boston standards. Answering an ad as a mail-order bride goes from happiness to despair. Lyle Elison has left Boston after deciding against going into his father’s textile business and has returned to Clear Creek, Kansas to be near his sister Cora, and to set up a law practice, how long will it be before people trust him?
The plot has an abandoned and very broke bride who conceived on her wedding night, with no idea where the groom has gone, and unable to declare him dead until after one year. A young lawyer who is trying to reconnects with people in town, but this time as a respectable citizen. Time is ticking away for them both, she is stuck in a marriage by law, and he is on a deadline to marry to gain an inheritance. Their time together as friends has turned into love, but she is married, and he needs a bride right away.
Things I could have lived without:
This book reads like a first draft. It definitely could have benefited from some time on the shelf and lots more editing. This is part of a series, which was confusing since this was the first one I'd read and characters were introduced at lightning speed with very little introduction. In contrast to that, the author would repeat information new to this story in sequential chapters and even paragraphs. I read a hundred books a year, and I am usually very picky about what I will read based on content and the quality of the writing. I continued to push on because of all of the reviews that rave about the writing and story. I wasn't impressed with the writing as it was. But I will say that this author has real potential. The story was cheesy, but clean love stories often are and it is something you learn to accept if you like love stories and don't want to read about sex. It could have been significantly less cheesy with some aggressive editing. All in all I acknowledge a great story idea but I won't read any of the other books in this series.
