Debbie C.4 Stars Out Of 5Clean, Christian, historical romance.April 19, 2018Debbie C.Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A Bride for Noah is a heartwarming, if not somewhat frustrating, story of love, betrayal, deception and faith. Evie Lawrence, after getting fed up with a life of being a servant, embarks on a journey to change her life. Evie decides to go to Seattle, Oregon Territory and open a restaurant and is able to talk her current employer, Miles Coffinger, into becoming partners with her on the deal. He agrees to finance the venture, with some help from Evie, and Evie is the cook and mastermind.
Once in Seattle she meets Noah Hughes, her Miles' nephew who works at the settlement's lumber company. They but heads because she brings with her not only his uncle, but three other women to work in the restaurant and that disrupts the lumber camp full of women-starved lumberjacks.
What comes next is a lot of fun, heartache, more butting of heads and eventually love, but between who? This book is well-written with both Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith collaborating together. The characters are well-developed, though I did want to but a few heads together myself while reading this book, but I enjoyed it none the less. If you enjoy clean, historical, Christian romance, you are sure to love this fabulous story. Enjoy!
I borrowed this book from my local library.
Delia Latham4 Stars Out Of 5History and heart song...November 29, 2014Delia LathamWhat a wonderful trip into early Oregon this book was!
I laughed, and gritted my teeth, and wanted to shake both hero and heroine a couple of times. These authors know how to create living, breathing characters that quickly feel like old friends to whom one doesn't want to say goodbye.
Indians and lumberjacks, snobs and gutter rats, ne'er-do-wells and hard-working, solid citizens...and a hard-headed heroine that'll make you want to send her to bed without dinner a time or two. All together in one delightful book that truly had me wondering for a time whether a happy ever after was actually going to even be possible. But with an author team like Lori and Virginia, ANYTHING is possible...and the reader is guaranteed an emotional rollercoaster ride on the way to making it happen.
SDRTLRAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5July 18, 2014SDRTLRAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This story was very engaging and we didn't want to put it down. We really enjoyed the
twists and the turns of finding out about a past relationship of our heroin and how it was
going to affect the relationship with the new man in her life. We loved the humor that
came out of the setting with a whole bunch of rugged lumberjacks and the woman with
some refinement learning to work together and support each other. Another humorous
storyline was that of a shrewd city businessman who was trying to use big city business
techniques out in the wild frontier. The results of his business endeavors, often proved
ill-advised in such remote settings. We would highly recommend reading this wellcrafted
book and we look forward to the next installment. Happy reading!
wfnrenSt Cloud, FLAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5A nice fun bookFebruary 23, 2014wfnrenSt Cloud, FLAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3It's 1851 and Evie Lawrence is working for Miles and Letitia Coffinger and as Miles is reading a letter from his nephew, Noah Hughes, to his wife, Evie overhears the suggestion to bring a load of women to Oregon Territory. Evie is engaged to James but one evening she finally sees the light and a different plan starts forming in her mind. She confronts Mr Coffinger first to see if he'd be willing to be a partner in a new restaurant in the Oregon Territory then she breaks off the engagement with James and soon finds herself, along with Miles and three other ladies on her way Oregon.
The plan doesn't go as well as she planned, Miles didn't have the money she thought he did and now she finds herself owing a bank money and the owners of the lumber company are very unhappy when women show up. The women didn't know just how rough the wilderness would be and find themselves having to work harder than was bargained for, oh, and there are Indians too!
I found this a peaceful smooth and fun book to read, I found myself chuckling in a few spots and just about had to brush away a couple of tears. Anytime I do that when reading I consider it a good story. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, "Rainy Day Dreams", to come out in April.
ACS Book FinderAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Hardheaded, stubborn, with laughsFebruary 19, 2014ACS Book FinderAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A woman is inadvertently given the opportunity by her employer to move to the west and make something of herself. After making the decision to cut ties with her fiancÃÂ©, she takes her employer up on his offer. Dragging along some husband-seeking friends with her, Evangeline Lawrence sets out to reform part of the west, starting with a restaurant in the middle of a settlement made up entirely of a lumberjacking community. Evie herself is a woman on a mission; she is determined and hardheaded, and for the most part sensible. Noah Hughes, the man who is not of her dreams, is equally stubborn; however, he is a man with a troubled past which sometimes manifests itself when he deals with Evie.
While reading "A Bride for Noah" I truly appreciated the sensory details that were often included. I could actually place myself in Evie's shoes, and visualize the camp to an extent. One can certainly appreciate the research that must have been put forth to compile facts about lumberjacks and the Indian traditions of that era. I highly recommend this book, if just for the laughs it evokes. (rev. Jael B.)
