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.

About the Author


Katie Wyatt is 25% American Sioux Indian. Born and raised in Arizona, she has traveled and camped extensively through California, Arizona, Nevada, Mexico, and New Mexico. Looking at the incredible night sky and the giant Saguaro cacti, she has dreamed of what it would be like to live in the early pioneer times. Spending time with a relative of the great Wyatt Earp, also named Wyatt Earp, Katie was mesmerized and inspired by the stories he told of bygone times. This historical interest in the old West became the inspiration for her Western romance novels. Her books are a mixture of actual historical facts and events mixed with action and humor, challenges and adventures. The characters in Katie's clean romance novels draw from her own experiences and are so real that they almost jump off the pages. You feel like you're walking beside them through all the ups and downs of their lives. As the stories unfold, you'll find yourself both laughing and crying. The endings will never fail to leave you feeling warm inside.
