MAIL-ORDER HOLIDAY BRIDES
MAIL-ORDER HOLIDAY BRIDES (4.5) by Jillian Hart & Janet Tronstad: These two charming stories are a perfect example of true Christmas spirit. In Hart’s “Home for Christmas,” Christina Eberlee’s parents are dead, and she is left with nothing. Being a mail-order bride is her best hope for the future. Unfortunately, its not her fiancé who exhibits all the characteristics she longs for in a husband, but Marshal Elijah Gable. Mail-order bride Annabelle Hester hopes Adam Stone is a good man in Tronstad’s “Snowflakes for Dry Creek.” However, Adam’s brother Gabe meets her with the news Adam has left town. Will he return to marry her — and does she still want him to?
