Twice Promised 

by Maggie Brendan

Book Blurb

Two beautiful brides. One unsuspecting groom. Three weeks to figure it all out.

Greta Olsen arrives in Central City, Colorado, as a mail-order bride, expecting to marry Jess Gifford, the man she’s come to know through his tender letters. But when she meets Cora Johnson, she discovers she’s not the only bride waiting at the train station for Jess.

Already shocked to find they must compete for Jess’s affection, the young women can hardly believe it when not Jess but his brother Zach picks them up from the station–and reveals that Jess knows nothing about any mail-order bride, let alone two. Will either bride make the match she hopes for?

Filled with surprises, misunderstandings, and tender romance, Twice Promised is the story of how two unlikely women become twice blessed.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Jess Gifford got the shock of his life when two women shows up at his store to work, and both expecting to marry him, thanks to Jess’s brother Zach. Just imagine what Jess had to say to brother when he finds out that Zach actually wrote to not one, but two mail order bride ads, saying he was Jess, and inviting them there for marriage, to Jess. Things got very interesting at the mercantile, and especially when the ladies decided to rearrange the store around to suite them.

I enjoy reading stories about mail order brides, and this one was especially interesting and amazing because it was a double take. This is such a wonderful heartwarming read. I love the down to earth characters that lived in the nice little homey neighborhood. And even though the two brides to be were totally opposites, I enjoyed getting to know them, and what they brought to the story. And Jess was hilarious, that is the only way to describe him.

I have to say that this is one of the most enjoyable, pleasant and fun reads I have ever read. There was definitely enough action going on to keep me reading until the end. I highly recommend book to just about anyone. If you enjoy historical fiction, you will love this one!
