Book Review: Twice Promised by Maggie Brendan

Jess Gifford is a hard worker who is content in his life as a bachelor, even if things are a little unorganized in his life. So when not one, but two mail order brides show up on his doorstep, he is at a loss for what to do with them. He certainly did not order them!

Greta Olsen and Cora Johnson are two beautiful women, each believing they are arriving in Colorado to meet a man whom they have become friends with through the mail. They find it hard to swallow that not only is Jess Gifford not expecting them, but they are not the only bride to show up for him to marry!

This was such a cute story of "surprises, misunderstandings, and tender romance" as the back of the book describes it.  It did not take me long to finish the story as I quickly turned the pages to find out what was going to happen next :-) It is the second book in the Blue Willow Brides series and I found that it read well as a stand alone book as I have never read the first book. After reading this story though, I may just look for the first one as I enjoyed this one so much!

Thanks to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.

Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group
