The synopsis gives the very basic premise of this story and while I want to expand on that, I don’t want to give away anything that would spoil it for future readers. Set in 1877, this is a “mail-order bride” story, with Rose’s background and how she came to be a mail-order bride (bit of a tale there) given in the Prologue. Logan’s backstory is given in the first half of Chapter 1.
Logan and Rose carry out monologues in their heads for part of the story, which is a clever ploy and works well. From the reader’s perspective, it is quite funny to see how often their thoughts mesh, without either of them knowing how the other is thinking or feeling.
There is quite a large cast of characters, but not a lot of development, although each character’s personality is soon obvious, which is a plus. There is some danger in the lives of both Logan and Rose, but I didn’t feel any tension or suspense as I read; it didn’t seem “real”.
As I said at the beginning, this is written very simply with sometimes a touch of the melodramatic thrown in. There are several wrongly used words, and at least one inconsistency, but apart from those, the editing is reasonable.
On the whole, a light romance, easily read and I can see there will probably be a good following for this series.
I have to hand it to all those women who really were mail-order brides; what a risky undertaking!
