Book Review~ The Springtime Mail Order Bride





Title: The Springtime Mail Order Bride
Author: Kit Morgan
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: 135 Pages
Purchase: Amazon









Arlan Weaver had often thought of getting himself a mail order bride, but now that he had, he wasn’t sure the pretty little thing The Ridgley Mail Order Brides Service sent him was going to be tough enough to handle farm life, let alone his brothers. But Arlan soon found his new little wife was chock full of surprises. In more ways than one. 

Samantha Carter had never considered becoming a mail order bride. She was to marry as soon as she turned eighteen and thus be out of her uncle’s hair not to mention his house. But her uncle had other plans, and wanted Samantha for himself. When she found out his intentions, she ran to the only mail order bride service she knew of, and begged Mrs. Ridgley to send her somewhere, ANYWHERE that would get her away from her lecherous uncle. And so, Mrs. Ridgley sent her to Nowhere. 
I thought this one was okay. It was a little forgettable, honestly. Not bad really, but not wowing either. I just finished it and I'm already struggling to remember it. I generally don't have this issue unless it's a story that I'm just kind of "meh" about. That's how I feel here. It wasn't amazingly awesome, and it wasn't horrible either. It was in the middle. I don't regret reading it all and would absolutely be open to reading more of the series.
The voice changes toward the end and it feels more fairy tale like in the narration than the rest of the book did, and that really threw me and it felt off. Overall though, it wasn't bad at all, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another of her books if I was looking for a light read.
