Bride for a Bit
I haven't had time to read in forever, but now that I have a brand new baby here, I can read a little bit while he's eating. My sister had this book in her bedroom and it peaked my interest. Here's the description of it:
"Misreading an order for bridles, a New England farmer sends his four sisters-in-law as mail-order brides to Lickwind, Wyoming. When the four women step off the train, astonishment turns to mayhem as the men of the town suddenly spruce up and make time for courting. Since James Collingswood - still without tack for his horses - can't afford train tickets to send the women back, they'll have to stay. But what future is there in Lickwind for:
Matty, the sociable sister who irritates James' very soul with her unending friendliness to the eager men of Lickwind.
Corrine, the mom-to-be still so pained over her young husband's death that she barely knows Luke Collingswood is alive.
Bess, who insists that the town must have a church, reform the brothel women, and straighten up the saloon keeper, Gideon Rikers.
Bertie, who can outperform any man she ever meets...until the mysterious Thomas Hardin becomes her personal protection agency.
Under such absurd circumstances, the sisters will certainly find laughter in Lickwind...but will they also find love? One thing's for sure - the town will never be the same again!"
My review: This was such a cute book. It is composed of four short novels, each one telling the love story of each sister.It was a really clean romance novel with scattered humor about it. Kinda cheesy but it was cute.
