Ooo, yup, 2 posts in one day. I just noticed I haven’t left a review for Montana Bride by Joan Johnston, even though I read it a month ago. Oi, this remodel will be the death of me.
I received Montana Bride by Joan Johnston from Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group – Bantam Dell. I had never read any of Joan Johnston’s books until the first in the mail-order brides off shoot of the Bitter Creek series. I loved the first 2 books, so I did quite the happy dance when I was granted an ARC of Montana Bride.
In Montana Bride, we finally get to learn what happened to the flirty Hetty Wentworth. I wasn’t a fan of Hetty in Wyoming Bride after all the drama she caused, but of course I was eager to get another dose of the Wentworths’. I was pleasantly surprised by Hetty’s change of character. She realized the horrible choices she made and tried to rectify her mistakes and help others. Karl was sweet and caring, I just wanted to squeeze him. I felt for him, his insecurities were heartbreaking. How can anyone think him plain when he has a heart of gold.
The real bonus were the kids. I loved their antics. I felt horrible for poor Grace for having to grow far beyond her years. And Griffin, such a silly little man.
I loved this book, just like the rest of the mini-series. I rate this book 4 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who loves western historical romances!
Thanks Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group – Bantam Dell.
