Publisher's Description

Journey now to Ruby City, Idaho of 1866 where...
A Marriage Mishap Creates an Awkward Love Triangle in this Silver Mining Town
 
Looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach, mail-order bride Rebecca Rice is pleased to marry her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham, until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore—proceeded by the title Deputy.

Is it possible to marry the wrong man?

When the newlyweds realize they’ve married the wrong partners with similar names, an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own, not to mention Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Fast-paced action, plenty of intriguing plot twists, and characters who all (well, mostly all) receive grace through the eyes and heart of Rebecca. A delightfully tangled, faith-based historical romance.

Dietze opens this novel with a hold-up that sets everything in motion. Fast to moderately paced throughout, Dietze creates descriptive, come-to-life scenes and characterization. Written in the third-person point of view, this is a mail-order bride novel that has an original storyline. Although there are other My Heart Belongs novels, this one is perfect as a stand-alone. Recommended for fans of historical mail-order bride romance.

    Thanks to my fondness of all things Idaho, this book cover immediately caught my attention! I couldn't resist this unique spin on one of my favorite romance tropes, the marriage of convenience (and a mail order bride to boot, yes!)

    From the bumpy stagecoach ride to marital misstep, Rebecca Rice has a rough road to travel. Her past is littered with hardships and heartache yet she has a generous and compassionate heart.

    Deputy Thaddeus Fordham is an honorable man and I like him very much! The author filled Ruby City with all sorts of colorful characters and saturated every aspect of the story with an excellent "old west" vibe.

    Although it might sound far-fetched from the blurb, this story unravels fluidly from Chapter One and has a great blend of romance, adventure, humor, and faith elements. I will definitely be on the lookout for more titles from Susanne Dietze!

    I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.

    My Heart Belongs In Ruby City, Idaho is about love and wanting to be loved, falling in love, trusting, mistaken identity, and learning where love comes from - the heart. This book is abounding in love, bustling in the brides by mail order business, chivalry in how Tad stands up for his wife, defenseless when Rebecca got robbed on the train, embarrassed when Tad and Rebecca realize they married the wrong person - Rebecca was suppose to marry Tad's cousin Theodore - Will Tad and Rebecca stay married? Will they fall in love? Will Theodore get involved? What serious and I do mean serious problems do the notorious gang of four cause our characters? This book is amazing, touching and so so good and I love it and so will you.....I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher and NetGalley; all the opinions in this review are all my own.

    This post Civil War tale begins with a stagecoach robbery and continues with creative twists and turns to the very end. A young woman's home had been turned into a makeshift hospital for soldiers, then was left in poverty. She decided to become a mail order bride, only to be married on arrival to the wrong man, and a Deputy Sheriff at that! You'll never guess who reenters the story as one of the stagecoach robbers. The author is married to a pastor, and has been writing since high school. Her years of experience are obvious in this wonderful historical western romance. Once you start you will not be able to put it down! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    What a fun, clean book! Author Susanne Dietze does a great job of letting you into the lives of her characters. Mayhem ensues when mail-order bridge Rebecca lands in Ruby City and marries the man of her dreams. Or so she thinks.

    With a lot of twists and turns, the story will keep you turning the pages to see how things are going to work out. Personalities are well developed, and the story is light and charming. Old fashioned manners are practiced, and the main characters learn to trust God with their lives.

    If you enjoy western fiction mixed with romance you will enjoy your visit to Ruby City.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a positive review.

    I have never read one of Suzanne Dietze's books until now and I have been missing out! She has a way of crafting a story that leaves the reader wanting more. Her characters are complex, yet ones that her readers can relate to. I love the show, I Love Lucy, and this book reminded me of that show. It is full of wit and humor, but it also has it's serious moments. I believe you will truly enjoy your trip to Ruby City, I know I did!

    Rebecca knows what it's like to be without. Her dad was a lawman, killed in the line of duty, one of her brothers died in the war and the other left to go out west and mine without so much as a backwards glance. She was tired of being at the mercy of others so it made sense to answer a marriage ad in the paper. Her journey was long and not without its trials, as her coach was held up by the gang of four before reaching Ruby City. Yet, Rebecca has faith that God has called her to marry Mr. Fordham and she can't wait to belong to a family again!

    I admired Rebecca's gumption. To make the decision to marry a total stranger in order to make a life for herself. Sure, they exchanged letters, but that's not enough to truly know someone. She had backbone and fire, she had to in order to survive all she endured, including the gang of four. She even pulled a knife on one of her attackers! Even though she's had more than her fair share of hardships, Rebecca refuses to allow it to make her bitter. She is the first one to extend grace to some of the least desirables in town. The first to rush to someone's aid regardless of who they are or what they've done. I truly admired Rebecca and hope that I can be more like her, quick to help and slow to judge.

    Thaddeus Fordham can't believe he married the wrong woman! Not only is she not his Rebecca, his lady spells it Rebekah, but she is Theodore's intended! He and Theo have been at odds ever since they fought to win Dottie's affection. In the end, she chose neither of the cousins, but the rift she caused appears to be permanent. All he wants is to do the right thing, get a quick annulment and find his Rebekah. Surely Theo can understand that, but when tempers go awry and the gang of four on the loose it appears that the annulment will be anything but simple.

    You have to hand it to Thaddeus, I'm not sure I could keep my composure with so many things going wrong at the same time. He is definitely attracted to Rebecca, but he is determined to do the right thing and get the annulment so she can be with Theodore, no matter how much it might break his heart. He even goes to great lengths to mend the rift this mishap has caused between Theodore and Rebecca. He's a stand up guy who puts everyone's needs before his own. Maybe it's because of the way Dottie played him and Theodore, but he seems determined to do the right thing no matter the cost. He's hard working, driven, and a man of faith, anyone would be lucky to have him, but he only wants one woman, and unfortunately she's promised to another.

    I truly enjoyed my "trip" to Ruby City and meeting all of it's residents. They were definitely a colorful but loyal bunch. I hope Ms. Dietze continues the series. I'd love to know what happens to the other budding romances in the town.
