This was a sweet short mail order bride romance story however it is more a short story and not a novella. I liked the characters and felt that with more time you could have really connected to them. The story seemed to show that the two had some chemistry, just needed it to develop and show more struggle with what they felt and more depth to how they came together with their feelings. I feel that the story was a bit rushed through with how they felt and then were together. I think if the story was a little longer and more developed that it would be a really great story.
This was a very nice story. Sweet with a happy ending. That's a very important thing to know before starting a book. My only complaint is that the story is short. I would have been happier with a few extra chapters.
I was rather surprised to discover, despite being a short story, the two characters had pretty good chemistry. Basically, this book is about a mail order bride who arrives in town to find her intended is dead. Is older more responsible brother nothing nothing of her and fully intends to leave town (since his brother is gone, nothing else is holding him there). But he just can't get his brothers mail order bride out of his mind!
All in all, this is a very nice story to pass a half hour. If it's ever made into a full length novel I will definitely buy/read it! Will also read the authors other stories. Very well written and sweet enough to make your tummy flip!
Now, quit reading reviews and buy the story! You won't regret it!Happy reading!! ;)
This story was just stupid through and through. If it hadn't been a novella I would not have finished. I chose it because it was free, knowing I might get what I paid for. Well, it's a good thing it is free because it is certainly not worth paying for. This story is in desperate need of an editor and someone to refine it and polish it up a bit. It breaks elementary writing rules. The dialogue is choppy, redundant, amateurish and makes the characters, both main and secondary, look like idiots. The characters are not likable and very simple. They make deductions about each other based on nothing I could see. I really can't recommend this story as is. With some serious editing, a lot more effort, believable dialogue, and more depth this story and author could have potential. I can't believe some of the positive reviews I've read for this story-it's like they read a completely different story!
This was an eventful story about a miner sending for a Bride. A young lady was looking for a husband to be with and start a family. When she arrived he didn't meet her, it was so cold she got sick and had to go to the infirmary.The man had been killed in the mine, his Brother found out about her and went to meet her. A must read for those who enjoy historical western romance kindle books from Amazon at a special price and from a delightful author who keeps me entertained throughout the entire book before putting it down.
This was a sweet story, well-developed. I liked the characters and enjoyed the way it all unfolded in what felt like a natural chain of events. My only complaint is the rushed ending. So much time was spent developing them, then suddenly it was two months later. I would have liked to see how they learned to live together, how their feelings developed. The end was very sudden. Still, a nice, enjoyable little read.
I think this story was well told, although I wish it would have been longer and I would have gotten to know the characters better, that said, it is still a heart warming story. Wyatt has just buried his brother Chester never knowing that Chester had been communicating through letters with a young woman who now may be a big part of Wyatt's life and love.
This mail-order bride story was mostly a disappointment. The image on the cover is very familiar to me, having traveled through and worked in Jackson, Wyoming. It's too specific to be on a cover for a Colorado-set book. The cover is professional and gave a good impression--but the proofreader (if there was one) missed so many errors that reading became laborious. Some historical references are way off--clothes hangers weren't around in 1893.
Wyatt and Piper didn't choose each other but fate had different ideas. It was a cute enough premise but the story wandered, ambled here and there without enough direction. Case in point: Wyatt realizes ridiculously late that it's not right for him to leave Chester's fiancee behind. He'd had ample opportunity and the RIGHT opportunity before, so he looked rather foolish. The author told me the characters developed tender feelings for each other but I never saw it in their actions, behavior, thoughts, etc. Likewise, the author told me that Piper was smart--never saw her show her smarts in action. It would have been nice to actually see some of the interaction between the characters that was glossed over so I could believe they fell in love.
