By Melissa Jagears
Eliza Cantrell is a mail-order bride on her way to to Salt Flatts, but her plans go awry when the train is held up and all of her money is stolen. But with her money gone Eliza knows she has little to encourage her intended husband to marry her - after all she isn't a beauty as she is well aware.
But Eliza is determined to make the best of the situation she now finds herself in. But with her intended away Eliza has to rely on the help of Axel's business partner William Stanton. And Will is less than pleased at this turn of events that he wasn't aware of. And there is something about Eliza that Will finds hard to resist.
But when Axel finally returns home an unexpected turn of events threatens everything that they have been working towards. Can turn love be found in an arranged marriage? Or will hearts rule the day? Read A Bride in Store and find out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
I was provided a copy of this book through the publisher and author in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Mail-order bride Eliza Cantrell is on her way to meet her intended groom and help him grow his general store business when her train is held up by robbers and she loses her dowry. She's further thwarted upon arriving in Salt Flatts only to find Axel, her groom, away on business.
Hoping a wife would push Axel to become a better business partner, William Stanton had encouraged him to seek a mail-order bride. With Axel gone, Will feels responsible for Eliza, so he finds her a place to stay and lets her help in the store.
Working together isn't what they'd expected, and when Axel is further delayed, neither can ignore the sparks that fly. But Eliza is meant for Axel and is set on a future with the store, while Will is biding time until he can afford medical school.
Their troubles are far from over when Axel returns to town, however, and soon both Will and Eliza must decide what they're willing to sacrifice to chase their dreams--or if God has a new dream in store for them both.
