Twice Promised, a review!

Seeing how successful her older sister's "mail order marriage" has been and longing to strike out on her own, Greta Olsen answers an ad for a mail order bride in Central City, Colorado. But when she meets Jess Gifford, owner of a thriving mercantile, she begins to harbor doubts. He didn't place the ad to begin with and his business in a busy mining town leaves him little time or energy for love. To compound her troubles, she was not the only bride to answer the ad! Will either bride strike the match she hopes for?

Filled with amusing and awkward situations that will keep the reader interested and guessing, Twice Promised is another sweet romance from Maggie Brendan.

 The story's premise almost promised an entire upheaval in the hero and heroine's lives...but with a couple of twists, love DOES endure.  I was so pleased throughout the novel.  From vibrant characters to the unmatched setting of the west, Twice Promised is a special read.   I have loved the series-  the author, Maggie Brendan, accomplishes changing a common plot into something more each time.  Truly, Greta and Jess are a pair of my favorite characters ever!  I enjoyed seeing and guessing who would end up with whom.   It was a relaxing, but fun and intriguing, read!

Thank you to Baker Publishing for a copy of the book, in exchange for an original review.
