First of all, even though this is the second book in the series it can definitely be read as a standalone. In fact it may be more enjoyable if you haven't read book one (which I actually loved, except for the many typos) since as another reviewer noted, Cinnamon was called Cindy in that story and then renamed Mindy in this one. And although I didn't notice an overabundance of typos like in the first book (though I did notice a dozen or so) it does seem like some fact-checking and a little editing would have helped out. Even Adelaide (book 1) was mistakenly called "Abigail" on page 53, and that's just what I noticed. For the most part I didn't let any of that bother me and I was still able to enjoy the story, but those who can't stand these sorts of mistakes may have a harder time with it.
While Cinnamon's story didn't tug on my emotions like Adelaide's did, I still liked it and found it very entertaining. Jed and Mindy were both endearing characters, as were Jed's mother and father. The sense of family, faith, and acceptance that Ms. Hutton portrayed was truly heartwarming to witness. And although this story certainly has religious elements (Jed does come from a long line of preachers after all) I didn't find it pushy and is not necessarily what I'd call clean either. There's only one sex scene that can easily be skipped over if need be, but the affection and love between this couple was obvious. It was a bit predictable a time or two and not as deep a read as I expected, but still a sweet romance. I also loved the ending and epilogue, which left me with a smile on my face =)
Setting: 1877 Dodge City, Kansas & Trinidad, Colorado
Pages: The entire story is approximately 106 of 136 pages.
Kindle Locations: The story itself ended at 78% and location 1388 of 1768 with the remainder being a list of the other books in the series, an excerpt for "THE SURPRISE BRIDES: CALEB" plus a short note about the author and praise for books by Callie Hutton.
The first Callie Hutton book I read was A Run For Love, and I then chain-read the entire Oklahoma Brides series. This is the second book in the Prisoners of Love Series, and I love the way Ms Hutton uses Christian elements in a natural, unobtrusive way, especially with the unlikely pairing of the saloon girl with the preacher.
Note: Some readers may have an issue with some proofreading errors, but the story is worth ignoring them. I will be reading every book. Callie Hutton has published as well as what she publishes in the future.
Callie writes such sweet novels with characters you will always remember. I habe read few in this series highky recommend if you enjoy mail order setting novels.
