Book Review: A Bride in Store

A Bride in Store
By Melissa Jagears 

Impatient to meet her intended groom and help him grow his general store, mail order bride Eliza Cantrell sets out on her travels a week early. But her plan goes sadly awry when her train is held up by robbers who steal her dowery, and Axel her groom to be, isn't even in town when she finally arrives. Axel's business partner William Stanton, has no head for business and would much rather be a doctor. When his friend's mail-order bride arrives in town with no money and no groom in sight he feels responsible and lets her help around the store - where she quickly proves she's much more adept at business than he ever will be.  The sparks that fly between Will and Eliza as they work together in close quarters are hard to ignore, but Eliza is meant for Axel and a future with the store, while Will is biding his time until he can afford medical school. When Axel finally returns, their troubles are far from over and soon 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. 

Melissa Jagears, author of A Bride for Keeps is a stay at home mother on a tiny Kansas farm with a fixer-upper house. She's a member of ACFW and Crown fiction marketing, and her passion is to help Christian believers mature in their faith and judge rightly. 

I'm a huge fan of romance books, especially historical ones, and I have to say that a Bride in Store is one to read. I love that she has to pick between her dream getting to marry a business man and having these business and marrying someone purely for love. This book is very descriptive, and one that's fun to read. If you like The Dawn of Christmas or When the Clouds Roll then you should for sure check out this book.
