My Review

Sheriff Spencer Riley was not exactly happy that his mother’s present for Christmas had been the fact that she asked for a mail-order bride for him. He was nervous and didn’t know how to approach the situation, but as soon as he laid eyes on his intended he knew he wanted to make it work.

Elnora Barstow came to Nowhere as a mail-order bride but she was afraid. Not afraid to get married but afraid of what would happen to her if her past caught up to her. She wasn’t sure she didn’t break the law before coming to Nowhere but the fact that her intended was the Town’s Sheriff put her on a more difficult situation.

What I Like:

  • Elle was protective over her new family and her soon to be husband, whether she noticed it or not. I liked that she had a good head over her shoulders and I understood her fear to talk about what had happened in New Orleans.
  • Spencer had it coming but the way he was adoring, charming, and a gentleman with Elle made me like him a little more. Also, when he found out what happened in New Orleans he took her side and didn’t condemn her in the least. He was a very good man and a good lawman too.
  • Character development was one of the things I noticed Kit Morgan does very well. This book was full of great characters and the main couple had a journey that I love watching until the Happily Ever After got at the end of the book.
  • I also loved that characters from the previous book were also secondaries in this one. Nobody was left behind and I can say enough praises for something like it. It makes you feel like you’re living in Nowhere with them.

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Charlotte Davis trying to create problems again, just like she did with Clayton. Like I said on my review for the first book in the series, I hope she gets a good man and stops creating such a ruckus for other women. Now that I think about it, I don’t see how she could get one unless he’s from another town.

I would recommend this story to those that love a good holiday romance and mail-order bride situations. I found out that I quite enjoy this type of story, especially when I need some light reading.

Disclaimer: The books of this series, at least a good chunk of them, are re-reads for me. I binged them a couple of years ago if I remember correctly and now I’m listening to the audiobook version thanks to Audible Escape.
