Twice Promised - A Review
Greta Olsen arrives in Central City, Colorado as mail-order bride. When she steps off the train, she finds out that she's not the only bride for Jess Gifford, his brother, Zach, meets the train, and her prosepctive groom has no idea that he even ordered one bride, let alone two! Both Greta and the other bride, Cora, find themselves being courted by a different brother. Will the women fall for the brother that is courting them? Or will they fall for the one courting the other bride? Will both women get the happy endings and new starts that they long for?
This is book 2 in the Blue Willow Bride Series, and they don't have to be read in order. I'd met Greta on the pages of Deeply Devoted and enjoyed being able to read her story now. While this was a fun, light-hearted read, there were times I was a bit annoyed with the characters, especially when it came to their lack of communication! I'd have to say my favorite character in the book was by far Granny. She's got a lot of spunk and knows how to put her grandsons in their place. Looking forward to reading the third book, Anna's story.
I received this book for free from the publisher, Revell Books, for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
