A Bride In Store by Melissa Jagears is a delightful story with both humor and drama running neck and neck throughout the story. Eliza Cantrell has left her controlling fiance and lazy brother in order to live her dream of owning a store. The fact that she must be a mail order bride is a minor factor. Leaving a week early, her train is robbed and she is left penniless and scarred.And the final straw...her intended groom is missing, leaving her to run his store with the assistance of the kindest man she has ever met.
Melissa Jagears has written an entertaining story that manages to ask some hard questions...what will you sacrifice for your dreams, both Eliza and Will Stanton, her fiances partner have worthy dreams, but must learn to ask G-d for His will not theirs. This is the second book I have read by Melissa Jagears, and I look forward to reading more of her tales.
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to give a favorable review.
