It was okay. The author could have fleshed out the love story a bit more instead of jumping from one situation to the next.
A light, enjoyable historical romance set in Calgary, with a strong-willed heroine and an exasperating hero who happens to be a Mountie. Really fun to read!
About a Mounted Poliman and a mail order bride
I loved this book! A Mountie/Doctor finds himself with a mail-order bride that his friend "ordered" and then left town.
"A wife shouldn't be a surprise package...
But mountie surgeon John Calloway suddenly found himself saddled with a special delivery he hadn't signed for---mail-order bride Sarah O'Neill. He had no room in his life for marriage! But why then did he feel compelled to protect Sarah from all things dark and dangerous---including her own unspoken past?
If John Calloway did want her there, fine! Sarah would survive---and thrive!--without him! The rugged committed doctor dismissed his proposal as an laborate prank. So how come the two of them kepy finding themselves in each other's arms? And what would Sarah be forced to deny in order to stay there?"
Set in 1800's. Mountie surgeon gets a mail-order bride sent to him by his men. He plans to return her as soon as possible--or does he?
Amazing book! Such a good read.
Historical Romance, Mail order bride and Mountie Surgeon, set in 1889
Sarah leaves Halifax to travel to Calgary for 2 purposes - to meet her future husband, a surgeon with the RCMP and to search for her brother. John has no idea that his men have been corresponding with Sarah and have sent for her as his mail-order bride. Furthermore, he thinks it is all a joke and plans to send Sarah back to Halifax. What John does not expect is a stubborn, capable female who is having none of his plans to sent her back. Due to a badly misunderstood situation, John is "forced" to marry Sarah. However, John sees everything in black and white so he questions all she says and does and puts his work always first before her. John likes Sarah's courage and beauty but he does not trust her and as she searches in secret for her brother, a wedge is driven between them. I liked the way the conflict between John's view of the world as all black or all white is played against Sarah's view of the world as somewhat gray. Conflict, humor, courage, suspicion, and love all are played out in a very well told story.
This is the first book I have read by this author but I will be looking for more of her RCMP stories.
