Bride for a Bit From Halter to Altar / From Carriage to Marriage / From Pride to Bride / From Alarming to Charming Author:Janelle Schneider, Cathy Marie Hake, JoAnn A. Grote, Pamela Kaye Tracy Miscommunication Starts a Chain of Four Delightful Weddings — Such a crazy mistake! — 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 courtin... more »g.
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 Lickwood.
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 out perform 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!« less
I started reading this book and finished it in two days, even with my busy schedule. These stories about how four sisters end up in Wyoming due to a mistake from a newspaper ad are extremely funny and have great insights to how God wants us all to give Him our trust and love throughout all our "trials" in life. Each sister has her own characteristics and ends up finding her perfect male complement in the small Wyoming town of Lickwind. The stories made me want to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and remember the good old days I had growing up in a small town in Michigan. I definitely recommend this book of treasures. You won't want to put it down until it's done and then you will want it to continue.

The book jacket reads, in part, as follows:
"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."
I happened to like the book. It is well written and the stories held my attention. I do not normally sit down and read a book cover to cover in a short amount of time, but I did on this one. It is Christian based, in part, but not overly so. The publishing company is "Heartsong". Hope you'll enjoy it!

The idea of this kind of miscommunication was one of the draws to this book for me. The other was the team of authors involved. I was not disappointed in the least. A very funny and clever concept and the characters are charming. I had trouble putting the book down once I started reading. Very enjoyable indeed.
I enjoyed the stories in this book. Even though each is written by a different author, they meshed the story-line so the sisters' lives continued in each. And I especially liked the ending as the whole family is together.
The book was very fasinating and intriguing. The overall plot was good and compelling. I certainly didn't have to force my self to read it!lol
There are 8 main charatars over all with a few other charatars to add depth.
I felt as if the writers(there were four) had a good sense of one another so that the writing style is similar so in that aspect it was good but not nessesarly great.
This is my take on the book and should not in any way be used as a professional opinion.
I'm merely an amateur writer/avid reader.Happy reading!!!
