As soon as she arrives in Sweetwater, Trudy is swept away by townsfolk to get her ready for her wedding.
Seth had made the plans before she arrived, sight unseen. Right away the two hit it off and we ride along thru the discoveries of new love. The plot in this book is excellent. The Author, Debra Holland did a superb job writing this book supplying us with a sweet western romance. This story not only held my interest, but I finished it my 1st day! I enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would and can't wait to start the next book in this series! The narrator, Lara Asmudson was very entertaining too.
I can only imagine how life was way back then. Outhouses, no electricity, no furnaces, no cars!
Jan 19, Haley Whitehall rated it really liked it. This is the first book I've read by Debra Holland and won't be the last. This was one of the better sweet mail order bride western romances I've read. It was historical accurate and the author paid attention to the details. I appreciate that. Actually, I really liked her writing style! Even with it being a clean romance sparks flew between the hero and heroine. That isn't always the case in sweet reads.
Trudy becomes a mail order bride to avoid marrying her boring neighbor and goes to Montana to This is the first book I've read by Debra Holland and won't be the last. Trudy becomes a mail order bride to avoid marrying her boring neighbor and goes to Montana to marry a farmer. Seth sends for a mail order bride after he finds out the woman he's cared for has run off with another man. I liked both Trudy and Seth they were likeable but human. I was a little disappointed with the lack of outside plot. There was bad blood between Seth and a rancher in town but it never materialized into anything.
Also, I thought the book was a bit long. Some of it could have been cut without harming the story or the romance. Jan 20, Linda Carroll-Bradd rated it it was amazing. Because I have read others in the Montana Sky series, I was especially interested to see the town in an earlier decade. Mail-order brides is one of my favorite romance tropes and I wasn't disappointed. Trudy has such high ideals and her patience and love is tested when her new reality in her life with Seth doesn't meet with her expectations.
A gentle romance blossoms and watches the changes brought out by love is affirming. Feb 27, Kristi rated it really liked it Shelves: own-ibook , historical.
These books are a little like my Hallmark channel of books. This is the first in the mail order bride series which is a theme that intrigues me. This one is a simple story about Trudy and Seth getting to know each other and finding love. A nice story and one I'd recommend to anyone looking for a light read. Jun 14, Alexandria rated it really liked it. I am loving the books about Sweetwater Springs.
This is the third book that I've read.
I feel like I'm a part of the town. Debra brings the characters to life. It's nice to get some updates on the other characters from previous stories. I can't wait to read the next story.

Several of the other mail-order brides may be mentioned in the story, but not reading about them prior will not hinder the understanding of the friendships developed. Seymour seems to have a special talent for matching the right bride to the gentleman seeking a bride.
Trudy Bauer of St. She will travel by railroad to her new home along with a substantial amount of home goods given to her by her father. The story will have Trudy and Seth basically liking each other from first sight but that doesn't mean they won't have their ups and downs. Starting with the shock from him of all the items she brought with her, and her shock at how small his home is.
She will meet several of the townspeople and develop a friendship or two. I love the enthusiasm of Trudy, with her bubbly personality and gentle way about her that endears those she meets. Seth likes his new wife but fears he will never love her but is smart enough not to reveal those feelings. She proves that she can cook, keep house, and be diplomatic with difficult people.
Just when things seem to be going perfectly, trouble is to be stirred. Has Trudy made an error in marrying him? Will Seth lose her before things can be made right?
The story is a clean, sweet, historical based mail order bride story with Christian elements but not preachy. It has the good, the bad, and the trouble-makers that are ugly. The phrase, "kill them with kindness" is fitting for the way Trudy knows how to kindly deal with difficult people. Mar 20, KayBee's Bookshelf rated it liked it. Trudy and Seths' story is an excellent start to the series. This was a slow-paced, easy western feel-good romance. Seth was infatuated with a saloon girl who ran off and married someone.
He saved face with friends by saying he had been corresponding with his intended.
The author allows you to focus on the couple without the interference as much I love these things sex, drama, and action. There was the potent Trudy and Seths' story is an excellent start to the series. There was the potential for all three to occur, but the Author kept things above board and Trudy's skirt down.
I think what I enjoyed most was the Epilogue.
It was cute and the interaction between the newlyweds was endearing. I look forward to reading more about the brides Aug 22, Betty Davidge rated it it was amazing. Debra Hollands books agin delight.. There's no doubting I love to read.
