1) The Bride’s Dilemma-Susan Page Davis
This story showcases a mail-order bride’s dedication to her intended groom. Caleb is jailed for a murder he claims he did not commit. Eve’s dedication in finding evidence is either commendable or foolhardy. Can they fall in love when one of them is behind bars? Nice side mystery of who-dun-it.
2) Romancing the Rancher- LindaFord
On top of a incapacitated father and an unruly sister, Zach has a ranch to run. There’s only so many hours in a day. Amelia claims Zach is her intended. Zach has no idea what she’s talking about. Courting is not his top priority. Can Zach stop being so prideful and accept some help?
3) The Marriage Sham-Vickie McDonough
In desperation, Zola married an abusive husband. He dies after two months of marriage. Evan, a rancher, can’t seem to keep a housekeeper on staff for very long. Can Zola give him hope for a peaceful household?
4)The Galway Girl-Erica Vetsch
Maeve couldn’t have landed in a more unlikely place than if she had pulled Lindsborg, KS out of a hat. She didn’t have that luxury. She had to leave Boston, or end up dead on the streets. Kaspar is shocked to find Maeve instead of the strong Swedish woman he requested as a bride. Can Maeve prove she can survive the hardships of farm life?
What I liked about all of these stories is the work ethics of the brides and their unwavering faith. Confronted with adversity, they “rolled up their sleeves” so to speak and helped in any way they can. These are really good, clean stories by authors I am familiar with. I recommend it.
Eve Martin arrives in Cheyenne to learn that man she came to marry is in jail, accused of a violent murder. Should she get on the next eastbound train, or has God brought her here to help save Caleb Blair’s life?
Eve and Blair were looking to wed for better or worse. I felt the emotions of this couples desire to turn the worse situation into better for a happy future. Thankfully they both had faith in God and good friends. It was difficult to set the book down because I was so anxious to find out how it all played out. The author did not disappoint me it was even better than I expected.
Romancing the Rancher by Linda Ford
Amelia expects a safe home for herself and her niece as mail-order bride to Zach Taggerty. Only Zach has never heard of her, and the last thing he needs is more complications in his life.
Loved this story! It hit home hard having gone through similar situation with my Father and then my husband due to their dementia. Heartache and feelings of hopelessness blinded this couple in search of their own needs. Thanks to this author for an amazing read.
The Marriage Sham by Vickie McDonough
Mail-order bride Zola Bryant is devastated. Her newlywed husband is dead. But even worse, they were never truly married because the man who wed them was an outlaw not a preacher. What will she do now that her life and reputation are in tatters?
Zola needed someone to give her a break at starting over. This young woman thrilled me with her tenacity which eventually earned herself to be trusted beyond all measure. A fun and full of mishaps. A must read. Wished it could have been longer. Author must have a great since of humor.
The Galway Girl by Erica Vetsch
A mail-order mix-up sends Irish lass Maeve O’Reilly to the Swedish community of Lindsborg, Kansas. Will Kaspar Sandberg consider it a happy accident or a disaster to be rectified as soon as possible?
Maeve reminds me of a firecracker, watch out there she goes. Me having four daughters had me routing for this young woman to overcome all odds. The author built an amazing character that would give hope to many a young girls facing hard times.
I loved these stories! At times funny and at times heartbreaking as the brides struggle so much before traveling to a groom and find more struggles. Each story is well-written with characters that are very realistic. There are some surprise twist and turns along the path to true happiness and keeps the reader engaged. I give this book 5 of5 stars and recommend it to everyone who likes to read Christian based romance novels.
I received an advance copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
