Book Review: Mail Order Bride – Summer's Fury by Katie Wyatt
by Joanne Troppello
Mail Order Bride – Summer's Fury by Katie Wyatt is Book 1, Edition 5 in the Pioneer Wilderness Romance Series.
If you've read many of my reviews, you probably know that I don't usually like to read novellas because they're so short and I like the way novels showcase a deeper sense of the characters and their development.
However, this novella was very good and captured my attention right away. It is a quick read at only 63 pages, but it's definitely worth your time.
This novella drew me in as the characters were caught in a tornado and Summer's heart started to melt as she watched how her new husband, Beauregard tried to protect her. The tables were soon turned, and she had to help him.
One of my favorite lessons was when Summer had to tell her new husband about her past. She remembered the advice given to her by a fellow train passenger on her journey to meet him. “Honesty was the foundation of trust in any marriage.” There is so much truth in that statement.
Out of all the novellas I've reviewed lately for Mustard Seed Sentinel, this one by far was my favorite. If you're looking for a quick inspirational read with fast-paced drama, then you should read this novella.
