Mail-Order Marriage Promise by Regina Scott - Review of the seventh book in the Frontier Bachelors series

Wanted: Husband and Father

Stunned that his sister ordered him a mail-order bride, John Wallin insists he's not the husband Dottie Tyrrell needs. The scholarly logger knows Dottie will make the perfect wife===for some other man. Yet he's compelled to invite the lovely widow and her infant son to stay with his family...but only until she can find her own way.

Dreams of true love are for other women. Betrayed by her baby's father, Dottie just wants a safe home for her precious child. But who could resist a man with John's quiet strength? When her secret past brings danger to their door, they may yet find this mail-order mix-up to be the perfect mistake...

WOW!!!!! That's all I can say, WOW!!! Regina did a wonderful job with this story, I didn't want to put the book down especially the last half! I have really enjoyed this series and will highly recommend it to anyone who likes/loves historical fiction, mail-order bride stories, and stories that show how a strong faith can pull you through the rough mountains of life.

I was given this book by Regina Scott for an honest review and that is what I have given here.

The Promise of a Letter by Kathleen Fuller - Review of the second book in an Amish Letters series


Roman is on the verge of leaving the Amish ways. Feeling confined by the strict rules, he longs to do something more with his life. But when things don't go as planned, Roman's prospects outside of the community dwindle. Upon learning that his beloved grandmother has dies and left a letter urging him to reconcile with his brother in Birch Creek, Roman decides to return home. But he doesn't plan to stay for long.

Leanna Chupp has always made her own way in her small community of Birch Creek. Though some may call her unconventional---strange, even---Leanna is happy. Especially since Roman Raber moved away., and she no longer has to work with him. Her unique outlook on life has meant she's never had many suitors pursuing courtship, which Leanna doesn't mind. She is content being single.

But when Roman and Leanna find themselves working together again, everything changes. Though neither fit squarely within the strictures of the Amish faith, their differences could be the very thing to help them form a deeper connection to their community and to each other. The question remains: will this strengthening bond be enough to make Roman stay for good?

Kathleen has shared yet another touching story. I really enjoyed this story and how both Roman and Leanna, somewhat considered outcasts, deal with life and seem to unknowingly help each other. I will say that with this series it will help you if you read the books in order. Kathleen does a great job of keeping you involved in the stories she tells, grab a copy of this book and enjoy!
