    With this type of book I pretty much know it'll all end okay. But getting to the ending was the fun part. Enjoyed it. Made for a very fast read.

    What do you think it would have been like to be a mail-order bride?

    Susan Page Davis gave us her take on that in the entertaining novel The Outlaw Takes a Bride. This book was such a delight. The tension and surprises were written with excellent timing. I especially enjoyed the play between the two lead characters. The awkwardness that came from the situations they were in was so sweet. I look forward to reading more historical books by Susan Davis. She sure knows how to spin a yarn!

    In The Outlaw Takes a Bride, Johnny Paynter goes on the run when his foreman turns up dead and its suspected that Johnny committed the crime even though hes innocent. Upon arriving at his brothers ranch in Texas, he finds his brother has been killed. When he discovers a mail-order bride is on the way to marry his brother, Johnny assumes his brothers identity and takes his bride. But what happens when the truth comes out? How will Johnny and the ranch survive a drought, a posse of outlaws, and a betrayal by someone he thought trustworthy? Will he and his bride find a way to trust God to smooth out the rocky road theyve found themselves on?

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

    Duplicity can land a cowboy in a pile of trouble, and a pile of trouble is where Johnny Paynter has landed. Two names, two identities, two lives and one very beautiful wife can keep a man confused most all of the time. If only Johnny had told the truth in the beginning, he would not be breaking his lovely bride's heart and he would certainly be closer to locating the outlaws who murdered his brother.

    Sally Golding is thrilled to have a second chance at happiness. When her long-awaited proposal from Mark Paynter arrives in the mail, she uses his generous monetary gift to purchase a train ticket straight from St. Louis to Beaumont, Texas. But Mark is acting very strange for a man who seemed thrilled about getting married in the words of his letters and his new foreman gives Sally great cause for concern.

    This light, western tale proves that the truth always comes out in the end, even though Johnny and Sally sure take their time finding that out. Enjoy this creative look at "home on the range" in 1885 Beaumont, Texas.

    Outlaw Takes A Bride

    His only crime is his navet, her only fault is her deep love for him. How will they clear all this dangerous mess and still be together?! She is on the verge of giving up and going home and he is ready to turn himself to the law when true cards are revealed and real danger started. johnny's and Sally's story though frustrating at some points is overall breathtaking. It takes a true gentleman to not take advantage of a willing lady, even buried in deceit as he is. And it takes a special kind of woman to understand and still love a man like Johnny faults and all.

    Adorable, suspenseful story that will have you flipping pages with worry and anticipation.
