Review: A Bride for All Seasons

A Bride for all Seasons: The Mail Order Bride Collection has four novellas about mail order brides who missed some information about their groom from the well-meaning editor of The Hitching Post catalogue. I enjoyed them all very much, but the last one was my favorite. :-)

"And Then Came Spring" by Margaret Brownley is about Mary Jo Parker who arrives at her fiance's town only to run into his eight year old son that he never mentioned and immediately after that encounter barges straight into the church to find herself at her groom's funeral.

"An Ever-After Summer" by Debra Clopton is about Matt Connell looking for a mother for his two year old little girl. He specifically requested a practical, non-religious woman so he is furious to see his fianc√© is apparently as unpractical as they come and, to top it all off, she is a Christian!

"Autumn's Angel" by Robin Lee Hatcher is about Luvena Abbot traveling with her two nieces and  nephew to marry a man opening an Opera House in Wyoming. When she meets Clay Birch, he is shocked to discover that she has children with her. He quickly tells her he can't marry her leaving Luvena confused and upset.

"Winter Wedding Bells" by Mary Connealy is about David Laramie who has less than a year to live searching for a mother to his two young boys. When Megan actually arrives, he is overjoyed to find someone willing to marry him. Only thing is, she didn't know he was dying.

All the stories were fun and well written. I really enjoyed them and whizzed through the stories. I can't wait to read more from these authors now! :-)

I was given this book free from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.
