Montana Bride by Joan Johnston - Mini Review

When Karl Norwood’s mail-order bride meets an untimely demise on the way to the Montana Territory, Hetty Wentworth steps in to take her place. Hetty has no idea how she’s going to pretend to be all the things she isn’t—including the mother of two kids. She only knows her deception is necessary if she’s going to save two orphans from the awful fate she suffered as a child.

Karl smells a rat when a much younger woman than he was expecting arrives with two children who look nothing like her. But his mail-order bride is so beautiful, he doesn’t object—until he realizes that his charming new wife has been lying . . . about everything. Can a woman forced to keep secrets and a man hindered by distrust ever hope to find happily ever after in each other’s arms?

I really enjoyed Hetty and Karl’s story. Hetty starts out a little self centered but she grows up. Karl is plain looking which makes him a unique hero. I loved that he was always so good with his mail order bride and was very considerate about her and the children. The kids help make the story more awesome.

Entertaining and highly recommended.

I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
