MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Touching Tale of Mail-Order MistakeMay 24, 2017MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This mail-order bride story may take place in the Old West, but the tale of mismatched and mistaken trumps the setting. Orphaned Rebecca Rice seeks a husband to provide for her, but the error upon her arrival may keep her from her dream. Cousins Tad and Theodore have been at odds. Now this "bride" adds fuel to their conflagration. I enjoyed the old-fashioned story and the development of the various characters, including the quirky ones. Oh, and a band of outlaws plays a role too. Reading such compelling fiction can offer insights into one's own life, so it goes beyond mere entertainment. I received a copy from Netgalley.

IVLeagueCabot, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This story has a vibe that #Hearties (and fans of the Western) will adore!May 12, 2017IVLeagueCabot, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Make room in your beach bag for Susanne Dietzes latest release, My Heart Belongs in Ruby City, Idaho. Although I usually shy away from love triangles, the accidental nature of Rebecca, Tad, and Theodores marriage mix-up combined well with the overall playful and lighthearted tenor of the story. Due to Dietzes tight plotting and quick pacing, this is a book which can easily be enjoyed in a sitting or two.
Rebecca Rice ventured to the Idaho Territory for Theodore and for herself, so God could make her whole. Yet before the sun sets on her first day in Ruby City she had been robbed, wed to the wrong man, and held hostage. Although she didnt envision her new life like this, she immediately began building relationships with the townsfolk while she awaited her annulment. During this time, readers get a glimpse of a woman who lavishes kindness on everyone regardless of their station. I especially enjoyed her friendships with Cornelia and Ulysses.
Despite her aversion to lawmen, Rebecca and Tad are thrust together via multiple attempts to apprehend the Gang of Four. This is a good thing for readers, because these two have chemistry from the outset! Between the miners, outlaws, and dashing deputy, this story has a vibe that #Hearties (and fans of the Western) will adore!
I received a copy of this book for free, a favorable review was not required of me. All opinions expressed are my own.
Karen LangeKentuckyAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun and Engaging StoryMay 9, 2017Karen LangeKentuckyAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book! Susanne knows how to tell a story filled to the brim with adventure, mystery, and yes, even a good dose of romance. This happily-ever-after tale will warm your heart while providing an entertaining ride through the old west. A marriage mix-up - that's what faces mail order bride Rebecca Rice upon arriving in Ruby City, Idaho. Things couldn't get much more tangled up in the matrimonial department for Rebecca and her real intended husband, Theodore. Accidentally marrying Theodore's cousin Tad gives her a rocky start to the quiet life she'd expected. But as in real life, things have a way of sorting themselves out, and this story, I'm happy to report, ends well. Susanne's characters, so caught up in doing the "right" thing, miss what's happening right under their noses. This book is the total package - great characters, fun and engaging plot, and a happy balance of romance and history. Looking forward to reading more of Susanne's stories soon.
