About the book:
Is it possible to marry the wrong man? Rebecca Rice was looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach by becoming mail-order bride to her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham—until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore, proceeded by the title Deputy.
Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father, so an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad Fordham wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .
My review (5 stars)
What a predicament Rebecca finds herself in when she inadvertently marries a different Mr. Fordham than the one she’s been corresponding with. The stagecoach was robbed during her trip to meet her future husband,her personal possessions were stolen, leaving her with nothing more than the clothes she was wearing. Needless to say she was very happy when her intended met her at the station and they could proceed with their wedding.
She soon realizes her mistake and meets the Mr. Fordham she’s been corresponding with. The Fordham cousins, Tad and Ted do not have a close relationship at all adding to the comedy of the story..
I found myself laughing while reading this book. The secondary characters were just as sweet and funny as the three main characters.
Of course, there are some bad guys, too. The Gang of Four are shady characters that wreak havoc on the town and keeps everyone on edge. The author managed to infuse humor in their storyline, too.
This is one of those books that I’ll definitely read again at some point and one that I highly recommend to readers of clean, Christian fiction.
I received a copy through Netgalley and have given my honest opinion.
