Product Description

In 1860s Seattle, a man with a wife could secure himself 640 acres of timberland. But because of his wife's untimely death, Joe Denton finds himself about to lose half of his claim. Still in mourning, his best solution is to buy one of those Mercer girls arriving from the East. A woman he'll marry in name but keep around mostly as a cook.

Anna Ivey's journey west with Asa Mercer's girls is an escape from the griefs of her past. She's not supposed to be a bride, though, just a cook for the girls. But when they land, she's handed to Joe Denton and the two find themselves in a knotty situation. She refuses to wed him and he's about to lose his land. With only a few months left, can Joe convince this provoking--but beguiling--easterner to be his bride?

Publisher's Weekly

Popular evangelical Christian novelist Gist tells a could-have-happened tale of a Seattle landowner who requires a wife to keep his 640 acres. In the land replete with timber but few women, widower Joe Denton signs a contract with Asa Mercer to deliver the wife he needs to ensure his land rights. Unfortunately, 19-year-old Anna Ivey doesn't realize she's signed on for marriage; she only wants passage out West and a job. Sparks fly as tempers flare when Joe and Anna discover they are at cross-purposes. Acquiescing to common sense as well as a sense of desperation, the two agree to work together temporarily. As Anna cooks up a storm in payment for the traveling debt Joe incurred on her behalf, Joe cooks up his own scheme for wooing Anna into marriage. Gist's work is comical, sassy and sweet—yet her story's ending ties together a bit too neatly for readers who relish real-life finales. (June) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    Bride in the Bargain was a good book. The story line was unique. I loved being immersed into the world of logging and lumber-jacking, and the book was very well researched.

    I loved Joe. He had a plan for his life, he knew how to get it, he just didn't plan on God's plan. I had to admit that I laughed quite a bit with his story.

    Now Anna on the other hand, I didn't find anything to memorable about. I have read her character 100 times before. She wasn't written badly, just nothing outstanding about her.

    I also wish that the author would bring God and faith into her books more often. That seems to be a re-occurring thing with her.

    That being said, overall I liked the book and thought it was a fun read.

    This review was written for A Bride in the Bargain.
    This was wonderfully written, well researched and all in all, a good read. It did drag just a little bit, but the end has a beautiful, unexpected ending. I was swept away into a world of lumberjacks, mail-order brides and romance. Not a bad mix if you think about it... ;)

    This review was written for A Bride in the Bargain.
    Interesting Book. The research for it was REALLY well done! This story had a lot of potentials...but I have to admit it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It started VERY well, but as it kept going things just kept repeating themselves and the story kept dragging... ( I wish, God was mentioned more often..) So I skipped some parts just to get to the end. Either way, Deeanne is a TALENTED author, and this will NOT be my last read from her.
