A Sweet Historical Mail Order Bride Romance (Rated PG)
What could go wrong?
EVELYN IS IN A PICKLE.
In less than five months, Evelyn Brandt will be an unwed mother. Her parents discover her secret and send her away on the next west-bound train. They insist she deliver the child on the other side of the continent where the disgrace won’t harm her father’s business empire and the family’s social standing. She’ll be allowed to return home after the child is adopted by decent people and her corset fits properly once more.
SAM'S IN CHARGE OF THE BRIDE LOTTERY, AND THE COMPETITION'S FIERCE.
It’s too bad the mail order bride agency failed to round up even half their order, ‘cause every man on the mountain wants a bride—except Sam Kochler—so he’s saddled with enforcing the rules. He received bios of each lady the agency sent, so when Evelyn steps off the train, he’s a tad curious and a mite too interested.
The tougher the competition becomes, the worse some fellas behave, and it’s not long before Sam finds himself courting Evelyn—only to protect her while she makes up her mind. He won’t allow himself to fall in love and still doesn’t want a wife…or so he keeps telling himself.

I am always amazed at the dynamics of family and choices made. I had so many questions early in the book about family members and their choices which the author allowed me to dwell on and fuss over before providing the answers. I love the time period of this story, when women had a place not just...

I just love the Mail Order Bride stories as things were actually done this way and there were many marriages that were a total success. They make the way things go now look very bad.

My heart stopped
This was such a good story, but when Octavia showed up, I had stop reading for a few days..and her parents..."double whammy". I loved her parents, couldn't stand them in the beginning but they truly redeemed themselves in the end. I also didn't anticipate "Pickle Pike's" turn arou...

2.5 stars. This one was predictable and pretty much insta love. The whole premise of the book is based on premarital sex since the lead is pregnant and abandoned by the cad father as well as her family. There is no sex in the book though. There is crudity which is inevitable since it takes place...

Very sweet and clean historical romance. I would have liked to see a bit more from the POV of the parents when they realize (view spoiler)[she's missing and when they get to the mining camp, and what brings them to Sam's side. (hide spoiler)]

This book "gushed" too much which made the characters unbelievable and at times un-relatable. I truly like Christian books but the people in the book must feel "real". Good idea for a mail-order bride story. Just too over the top in "godliness".
