Twice Promised by Maggie Brendan
Acclaimed romance writer, Maggie Brendan is the author of Heart of the West series that has been well-reviewed in Romantic Times, and she has received the Atlanta Persistence Award from the American Christian Writers. She is a member of American Christian Writers, Romance Writers of American, Faith Love and Hope, Georgia Romance Writers, and the American Fiction Writers Association. Maggie loves all things western and enjoys doing research for her historical novels.
From the book’s back cover:
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.
With her words Maggie Brendan weaves a quaint plot in the area of mail-order brides. The two brides-to-be are quite the opposite in disposition with both being sweet but confused. The two grooms-to-be are brothers but also have opposite dispositions. As all the ends are tied together, this is a romance story that will keep you guessing even though you’re pretty sure you’ve figured out the ending.
