"The Unexpected Bride"

What’s a man to do when his father orders him a bride?

Rebecca Sullivan has been “Becky” all her life, a real hoyden. Her childhood sweetheart taught her to ride bareback and shoot a rifle, but then he chose a “perfect lady” for a wife—a real Southern belle, who’s now expecting a baby. Heartbroken, Becky signs up to be a mail-order bride to a Seattle man, sight unseen. She resolves to squelch her hoydenish ways and become a “perfect lady” for her future husband.

If logging-operation owner Isaac Jessup had wanted a bride, he’d have chosen a sturdy frontier woman, not some fragile lady from back East. Ready to explain the mistake, honorable Isaac takes one look into Rebecca’s vulnerable eyes...and knows he’ll marry her, even though this delicate waif is obviously unsuited for wild Seattle.

Can an unexpected marriage ever be a match made in heaven?

My Thoughts....

I just finished two cozy mystery books, and last night I was not in the mood to watch TV, Netflix, etc... instead, I choose to read a book. 

Since I felt like a 'fluffy cotton candy' sort of a book, I choose this Mail-Order Bride book. It's a clean, sweet Historical  Western  Romance novel. It was interesting enough I stayed up reading until the wee small hours of the morning. (2:30 am) Actually, I read the whole book...I decided to award it 4 "Mail-Order Bride" stars, because it was a fun little fluffy book for in the middle of the night, when my mind is like the fluffy dandelion seeds floating through the air.

The pros for the book was it was a clean romance novel. The cons it did a lot of repeating some of their thoughts. After a while it got a bit annoying, but I got over myself, and said so-be-it and enjoyed my reading...

This book is part of my Nook library.
