COTT: Mail Order Surprise by Lucy Thompson






PURCHASE

About the book:
Colorado, 1881. Lydia Walsh is on the run. The quiet rancher she marries and expected to find safety and protection with turns out to have three siblings, next to nothing to live on, and is a crack shot who may or may not be one of the states best cattle rustlers.

Beau Harding wants to keep his family together and do the right thing by them. His mail order bride comes with her own set of baggage: two more mouths to feed and empty hearts begging him to fill. The job he took for some quick money gets him thrown in jail for rustling, and then to clear his name he takes on another job--and learns that his wife may have been the one plotting his family’s downfall all along.

  2. I can't imagine even considering the idea of being a mail order bride. I'm sure it turned out okay in some cases, but what a risk!

  3. Caryl. Thanks for stopping by. I agree. Doesn't it sound interesting? I'm with DIANNA, though. It sure is risky, but I guess back then, options were less and people are willing to get out of their comfort zones. There's always something about mail order bride stories that I find fascinating.
