Nebraska Historical Romances
Okay, my computer decided to restart right in the middle of me typing a review for this book. So let's give this another go, shall we? After reading the previous book in this series, A Bride for Tom I would apply that review to this book as well , I realized that I also had this book on my kindle. The storyline sounded fun so, even though I did not like the previous book, I figured I'd give this one a shot. After all, I already had it and it's only pages, right?

I didn't make it through those pages. Isn't this book supposed to be Christian fiction?? That's how it was listed on Amazon. I expected a Christian -- or at least "clean" -- read, but that certainly isn't what I got. Yes, God is mentioned. No, there is no cursing-- that I saw. But that wedding night scene is definitely explicit.
I do not recommend this book. A Bride for Tom is a pretty basic triangle novella that just felt a bit too simplistic. Tom Larson gets super-clumsy and tongue-tied around women, but he's desperate to move out and create his own household. When Tom managed to be refused by most of the town's single women at the barn dance, Jessica Reynolds decided to help him overcome his awkwardness. But Jessica is already engaged, and even as she's failing to rehabilitate Tom's reputation, Jessica realized something Her fiancee has no backbone everything's controlled by his mother and Jessica found herself attracted to the kind Tom instead Not bad for a short, as it's sweet and all that.
A bit too overly dramatic, perhaps, but okay for novella. One person found this helpful. Like in the first novella, the historical research was lacking. The book was set in , and several terms were used that had not come into usage yet. In addition, their sugar wouldn't have been granulated. It would have been in loaf form and would not have poured out. High chairs did not have removable trays until much, much later.
Even in the 's the wooden high chairs had attached trays that would swing up and down. It is doubtful Margaret would have been allowed to be with Joseph alone before marriage without a chaperone, and "Debra" would have likely been spelled "Deborah. It is also unlikely a six-year-old boy would have used the word "obnoxious. It didn't need to be that explicit, however. All in all, I still enjoyed the book. It was a quick read with an interesting plot.
This was a cute and heart-warming story of a woman, Margaret, who advertises for a husband and ends up with a ready-made family. The characters were interesting but one dimensional. The book had an old fashioned feel to it and I would probably rate it a 3.
Other Books in This Series
There was conflict in the book but at times it seemed contrived and there sometimes was not enough detail about the struggle to become a family unit but others may feel diffently. Although I chuckled at the unique way Margaret got rid of her competition. She's a smart cookie.
Kudos to the author for creating such a character. My big gripe is how new characters were introduced, out of thin air without any supporting context.get link
Eye of the Beholder
For example, in the beginning of the book Pete and Debra were mentioned by name but not explained. I was like, who? It was a cold splash of water and interrupted the flow of the book. I kept wondering if I missed an introduction or conversation somewhere. But, we find out who Pete and Debra are much later in the book and not a minute before. Additionally, there was interaction with a farmhand that seemed to come out of nowhere and had me scratching my head for context -I didn't understand why Margaret and Jessica made the comments they did.

If the author re-edits the book, they may want to consider putting in qualifiers when they first mention these characters, to lessen confusion. Since this book used to be combined with another story, I can only assume the other story - A Bride for Tom - should be read before this book. It may explain some of the confusion I had. I chose this book because of its interesting title, as well as the fact that it is part of a series.
This is where things get heated for lack of better wording. The love making scene is described in great detail, so much so that it's kind of like watching a movie. I'm an adult, I don't need a sex ed class or "sex talk. I don't think I'll be reading the remainder of the series. It a pretty good book but best part is I got it for free!
Heroine request a mail order husband and gets more than she bargained for with an instant family of 4! Worst, hero has a stalker that made his deceased wife's life difficult. Well this heroine us not someone to sit back and ignore anything! I enjoyed this read and would recommend it. It is a safe read.
