Twice Promised ~ Review

Twice Promised
The Blue Willow Brides 2
By Maggie Brendan

Two Mail-Order Brides are about to descend upon Central City, Colorado and their intended husband doesn't even know that they exist!  When Greta Olsen and Cora Johnson arrive in Central City they both expect to be met be Jess Gifford, but instead they are met by his younger brother Zach.


Both ladies are shocked to learn that they were never corresponding with Jess and that Zach hatched this wild scheme to find his older brother a wife who could help run the mercantile.  Greta, Cora and Jess when he learns about Zach's meddling are annoyed with Zach.

Jess feels his life and the mercantile are both fine and the disorder of his life suits him.  But he, Cora and Greta agree to give it a go and see if anything develops between them.  But Jess feels that since this was all Zach's doing he should court one of the beautiful brides-to-be as well.

Granny comes up with the solution to her grandsons dilemma.  Jess will court whichever lady drinks from the Country Rose teacup and Zach will court the one that drinks from the Blue Willow teacup. 

The courting plan pairs Greta with Zach and Cora with Jess, but will the heart follow the leadings of the plan?  

As they get to know one another Cora and Greta work at the mercantile, and Greta reorganizes the chaos that reigns the shelves and tables to Jess's annoyance.  But Greta's efforts pay off with increased business for the store.

Twice Promised is a story of second chances and new beginnings.  Central City will never be the same when Greta and Cora discover the true desires of their hearts and the blessings that God has bestowed upon them.
