Only a miracle will prove her innocence, but the joining of two lonely hearts may be their saving grace.
I enjoyed all four of the stories in this collection of novellas. It seemed as if each tale was better than the last. Of course, when I saw “A Western Bride Collection” on the front of the book, I figured I wouldn’t be disappointed. :) Some of my favorite novels tend to be Westerns.
I wasn’t always sure about any of the four heroines — at one point or another, they all seemed rough around the edges. But they were all certainly unique, and I liked that aspect of this book: each story intentionally centered around an unlikely match between hero and heroine.
The authors of these novellas did an amazing job of not making the romances seemed rushed. I’ve read books four times as long as some of these stories where the romances weren’t timed so well as these were. Toward the very end of the stories the marriage proposals tended to seem sudden, and in a few stories, conversations between the heroes and heroines seemed to get repetitive, but the romances in general were very believable . . . All stories were definitely interesting!
Four very talented authors created four engaging tales that anyone who likes a good romance or a Christian novella will enjoy.
I give this book 4 stars.
Please know that ratings from 3.5 to 4.5 are good. I rarely rate a book a 5 as that wouldn’t leave a sufficient rating for those mind-blowingly great books that come along from time to time!
In compliance with regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, please know that the publicist, on behalf of the author and publisher, has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this review. All opinions expressed are my own.
