Book Review of Mail Order Bride: Holly (Orphan Brides Go West Book 4)



Book Review of Mail Order Bride: Holly (Orphan Brides Go West Book 4)

Review by Eve Culley

A sweet, clean story of Holly and her five children. The death of her first husband leaves the young family in New York without a home for the family.

Kurt, a rancher in Kansas, is in need of a wife. His brother convinces him to find a mail order bride. Holly arrives with an unexpected ready-made family.


Problems: Kurt is 25 yrs old, and Holly is about five yrs older. Her oldest son who is ten doesn’t like the new family makeup and doesn’t like Kansas. He refuses to listen, to help around the house. Another area of conflict is the women in town who do not like her and refuse to socialize with her at church. There are life-threatening accidents, and her new husband is unsure the new family dynamic will work. He thinks it might be best if she returns to New York. Only she has no place to go and no way to care for her children.

But as with every problem, there are solutions to be found that will work.

About the Author - Vivi Holt


Vivi lives in beautiful Brisbane, Australia with her husband and three young children. Growing up on a farm she learned to love the country life and now she writes about it in her books. History has always fascinated her as well, so writing historical romance seemed a natural progression. She loves horse-riding, hiking, and reading.

Her goal is to write touching, emotional and sweet romance stories that captivate the reader and transport them to another place or time.

About the Reviewer - Eve Culley


Story-telling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon.

I write for children because with their wonderful imaginations they are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible. Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
