The biggest issue is that the author really fails to capture the period she's in. It just feels wrong, even if it's hard to put a finger on why. Everything feels too modern.
There's also just nothing special about it. I was pretty sure what was going to happen, and it did. The Big Mis got stupid quick, but the resolution was also not that greayt.
Lastly, I'm not really a reader who cares about the book being clean, but for anyone who might: There are no graphic sex scenes. However, there are definitely plenty of references to married characters having sex ("lovemaking"), being in the afterglow, women being told they should sleep with their husband so he'll be in a better mood... If I was worried about "clean" I might want to give this a pass. There was no objectionable language.
The heroine refuses to marry any man from eastern society, claiming they bore her. But she's more than willing to head out west to marry a stranger just so she can get new experiences to write about. I found this a bit unbelievable.
Second, she lives with Dean and his two children for three months before they finally get married, with no other adult in the house. In real life, that would have been scandalous! She would have either needed to marry him immediately, or live with another family during their courtship.
Lastly, it irritated me that she never told her family whee she was going, never sent them a letter to let them know she was safe, never told them she was married. Her mother would have been frantic with worry! A cruel thing to do.
Overall, an OK book to read for free for an hour or so, but nothing spectacular, nothing I would actually pay for.
*I laughed out loud several times, both at the absurdity of the scene and the actual humor in the book
*Far too predictable; jazz it up with a some mystery or an Indian scare or something; I was never left hanging; I always knew what was about to happen.
*Not one iota of realistic anything
*Poor character development; the author could do SO much more but is taking the easy way
*The tizzy that Tessa gets in over the top unreasonable. That one rather insignificant argument was milked for way too long.
*Generally speaking, men don't stand around openly exploring their emotions and feelings over and over with one another.
*The man who reads the audible versions sounds hilarious trying to speak like a woman (does great as a man)
*The cover of the book is totally stupid. The main character is not a woman of the evening.
*This book is billed as being christian but cuss words are scattered througout; also descriptive text about lovemaking cause me to not recommend it to pre-teens or pre-17.
I am baffled as to how this book has a 4 star rating?
I find it funny the author's last name is BRIDEY and she writes about mail order brides.
