Friday, August 18, 2023

I really enjoyed this book. A head strong female who takes her life choices in her own hand! She keaves high society to become a mail order bride. She tells no one execpt her best friend. Her parents haven't a clue.

Of course there is drama when she finds out it wasn't her new husband who wrote those marvelous letters---but then-she never told her parents she had gotten married. Her Dad managed to track her down--can these two reconcile and live happily ever after?

About the Book: (from Amazon)

True love requires trust... Can it thrive when a relationship is built on secrets and lies?

Tessa O’Connor is tired of the high society lifestyle, and the pressure is on for her to marry a wealthy man. Fearful of becoming trapped in a life that would make her increasingly miserable, she decides to try the mail-order bride approach.

Meanwhile, Dean Samuels is struggling to take care of his two young children while managing his ranch and business in the wake of his wife’s death. He jokingly agrees to his brother’s suggestion to place an ad for a bride, never expecting that anyone would reply… or that he would develop feelings for her so quickly.

After several months of correspondence, it’s clear that there’s something burning between Tessa and Dean, and Tessa starts planning to run away to Montana to meet him.

Everything looks perfect… Until Tessa uncovers a secret… Can she really trust Dean? And how many of their private and intimate moments are less private than she thought?

But Dean isn’t the only one with a secret, and when he discovers what Tessa’s been hiding, he isn’t sure he can trust her either.

Is their relationship doomed to a fate of mistrust and secrecy? Or is the love between them enough to carry them through and find their way back to each other’s hearts?

Writing is a labor of love for Linda Bridey, whose works are consistently on several top 100 best-selling romance book lists. Since starting her writing career in earnest, Linda has written thirty-seven books and counting, which have gained great popularity.

Her Westward series, which includes twenty-three books, is set in Dawson, Montana. When the series ended, her readers wanted more of the characters they'd come to know and love--so much so that it prompted her to create the Dawson Chronicles, which picks up the stories of many of the descendants of the original characters, but can also be read as a stand-alone series.

Linda's Echo Canyon series, tells the story of a small Montana town on the verge of extinction after the collapse of the mining industry in the region. It shows the ingenuity of the Echo's inhabitants in how they come together to save the town they love. All is not always as it seems in Echo with mystery, suspense, and romance abound!
