About the Author
Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first book was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She and her husband of over 25 years reside in southeast Washington State.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

John is stunned to find out that his sister, Beth, ordered him a mail-order bride. He is positive the lovely widow will make someone a wonderful wife, but not him. He invites Dottie and Peter to stay with his family until she can find her own way. So why does he feel protective and jealous when Dottie begins receiving male suitors? And why is the lady so cautious and wary? It is as if she believes men are all tricksters. Has a man hurt her before?
***** FIVE STARS! This story was so good that I could not put it down. I read the entire novel in one sitting. The characters are all well developed. The writing style is smooth. Best of all, everything stays true to the time period. Readers understand WHY Dottie is distrustful, yet she has managed to remain a good person and does all she possibly can to secure a good life for her infant son. I was actually proud of Dottie’s character. As for John’s character, he is just as selfless. He is a logger who enjoys reading and a certain cat, but (unlike his brothers) he does not consider himself to be a hero and that is what Dottie needs. He believes that Dottie deserves better and genuinely wants to help her.
Of course, readers know early on that Dottie’s fear of Frank showing up is bound to happen. Yet I still found the last few chapters to be very intense and suspenseful. I even caught my breath at one point. This is a fantastic addition to the series. I cannot wait for the next installment. Perhaps Beth will have her story told soon. *****

More than any other story in the Frontier Bachelors series, this one made me smile. I chuckled at Peter's antics and adoration of John; John's interactions with the logging crew who also pursue Dottie made me laugh out loud as he allows Peter to scare off the competitors and show his own skills with children off to advantage. Seeing him so comfortable with a baby in his arms no doubt melted Dottie's heart right along with mine as it reminds me of my husband with our kids.
This is historical fiction that will be enjoyed most by those who like mail-order bride novels, frontier stories, or those with an interest in Seattle's history. I would also recommend it for those who like historical fiction in general, as there are plenty of details about the time and place as well as an engaging story with likable characters.
I received a free copy of this book from the author, but no compensation for this review. I was not required to post a positive one, and the thoughts expressed are both honest and my own.
This was a sweet story with a slightly different angle from most of the typical mail-order bride stories. The book was obviously part of a series since it mentioned other couples. But I didn't feel lost or confused. There was just enough information to help the story flow and peak my interest in going back to read the other books. The romance between the two main characters was sweet, clean, and romantic. The outcome is inevitable, but the author took a unique route getting there. She also infused faith and family throughout the book to creating a rich story with plenty of history about the small towns. This would be a good book for anyone who enjoys historical Christian fiction.

Dottie Tyrrell, age 23, a widow, accompanied by her infant son, Peter, has traveled from Cincinnati to be a mail order bride. Dottie’s marriage to Frank Reynolds had been unhappy but when she discovers that he is already married to another woman, she chooses to flee.
John Wallin, age 28, owns land in Wallin Landing not far from Seattle. Dottie has been communicating via letter with John’s sister, Beth. However, John does not know this until Beth introduces them telling John that Dottie is to be his mail order bride. But John is adamant that he does not want a wife and Dottie is equally adamant that she will not leave without a husband.
But John is a good man and kindly offers for Dottie and Peter to live in his house by themselves and the entire Wallin Landing family and community embraces and welcomes them. John is very nice to Dottie and their friendship soon grows. Can their friendship become love before Dottie’s past comes back to haunt her?
This is a pleasant, clean romance. I found a lot of the story to be rather predictable and simply “vanilla." I am sure there will be other readers who will love it.
