Loving each book of the Bitter Creek Series!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wyoming Bride (Bitter Creek Novels (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
As good as the first book for me Wyoming Bride did not disappoint! Easily FIVE STARS *****
Firstly if you haven't read Texas Bride yet, you should read it before you read this book! What I love is that this book really ties in with the last one and of course if you have read it you can clearly remember and see the threads running through. Although if you prefer this book could be read as a standalone book.
I have enjoyed reading Joan Johnston's books so much I have ordered the next series beginning with Barefoot Bride, so will review those as soon as I read them! The characters and stories are always well developed and written and I struggle to book the books down! (Let's just say I cannot wait until Montana Bride is released)
Hannah and her sisters are waiting for word from Miranda who has taken their two brothers and moved to Texas as a mail order bride. Time is coming closer to when the twins Hannah and Hetty must leave the orphanage as they will be 18, leaving behind Josie to suffer the abuse of the mistress of the orphanage for another two years! Hannah agrees to become a mail order bride of a man who is moving West to Wyoming on the wagon train and agrees in return for the marriage that he will also take her sisters as well with them. On their journey west Hannah's husband McCurty dies of Cholera. Hannah finds herself stranded in the Wyoming wilderness without her sisters, with child, and near death when Flint Creed stumbles upon her. Flint (Super Sexy Cowboy Rancher) rescues Hannah and brings her back to the ranch. Flint lives with his younger brother Ransom in a house they share on their ranch. Ransom is going to be wed to Emaline in a month, but it is Flint who met and fell in love with her first. He realises Emaline's heart belongs to Ransom but that doesn't mean he is going to let go of the way he feels. But, something about Hannah stirs him and he feels drawn to her. He offers a marriage of convenience, she has nowhere to go and he doesn't want to live in a house with the newlyweds and assumes being married will prove a great enough distraction. If only things were that simple.... as the story unfolds you will be turning page after page to find out what happens next! I thought Hannah's character was great she is made of strong stuff and I really enjoyed how she looks at things and can call it as she sees it!
