    Thank you to NetGalley and the author for the copy of this ARC in exchange for my honest reviewThis historical romance takes place in 1873 and begins several years after two young girls were abandoned by their father with a mother who leaves much to be desired Amy Harris has been waiting some time for her beau to come through and marry her but with him still missing and a new rather intriguing man suddenly on her doorstep eager to marry her she hastily marries and moves to his home hoping for a better life At eighteen she is not really sure what being a farmer’s wife or even what a being a wife might entail so is thankful that Matt Kendall has promised to “give her time” Matt is rather distant and opinionated while Amy is saucy and outspoken Their time is not easy together and it takes a LONG time for them to actually start getting along There is someone from the past that shows up her sister’s situation to think about train and bank robberies taking place new neighbors to get to know and a whole lot going on before everyone ends up with their happy ending This was an okay book with plenty of story to read although I found it difficult to believe that Matt would wait as long as he did or that the two together could or would behave as they did in many places in this story It was entertaining and solid and typical of books of this genre

    I really liked Eugenia Riley's Missouri Bride it was a heart warming story that was sweet and passionate Amy's life hasn't been easy since her father never came back from the Civil War She has a younger sister and a crazy drunken mother She is kind of engaged to marry Lacy but this is the third time he stood her up and didn't come back to town when he promised he would to marry herEnter Matt he was a younger friend of her father's before and during the war and stopped by to see her father on his way to Virginia He didn't know Amy's father had never come back from the war and doesn't know if he is alive or dead He sees Amy and instantly decides he wants her he thinks she will make an excellent farmer's wife out in the countryAmy gets a little than she bargained for when marrying a stranger She isn't uite ready to be Matt's wife in every way she doesn't think she knows him well enough Matt doesn't share a lot with her he doesn't talk about the war or her father and his relationship with him Amy also worries about her younger sister back homeAmy and Matt do have a lot of chemistry but there was something missing for me The author told the reader that Matt was mysterious but I didn't feel it It didn't take away from the story too much but I wanted to know of his thoughtsThere is passion in the story which is well done and a little steamy the story drags a bit in the middle before it picks up again Recommended read I enjoyed it and I think other readers who like western historical romances would tooI received a complimentary copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    This book won't be everyone's cup of tea This is really important because some people won't get where the story is going or anything and will absolutely hate it While I didn't love the book I respected how the author was staying pretty close to real life in this setting while still spinning a romance story I did find it enjoyable and did find I liked the struggle and realness The reality is life for women in this area and time wasn't all peaches and cream The story showed that with the heroines desperate feelings and marrying a man she just met in order to leave her mother and live somewhere else Granted the two were attracted to one another so at least her husband wasn't hideous hold or anything of that kind Also for the most part she lucked out with a decent man who wouldn't abuse her and would love her The story is gritty real and not for someone who expects fluff

    In this story you have a young woman who has taken care of her sister all her life She hopes for a better future but the person she trusts is nowhere I guess you can say he towing with her like you would a cat and a piece of string Now do to pure fate in walks someone who could change everything for her Will she have the courage to go for a better future? What about her sister leaving her was so hard to do? For the most part this is a story about the journey of Amy and Matt and all the ups and downs Yes there is a truly bad guy in the mix but also what turns out to be a wonderful surprise for the sisters You cannot help falling in love with the characters it is a book I highly recommend I am part of this author advance reading group and I am volunteering it to leave an honest review as a thank you for letting me read her stories

  8. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    This is an entertaining story that tells of the trials and tribulations of a newly wed couple Amy and Matt They have many misunderstandings mainly due to pride and lack of discussion There are interesting secondary characters in the shape of their neighbours and Amy's sweet younger sister It includes plenty of action in the storyline that will keep you reading until the last page I received a free copy which I voluntarily reviewed This is my honest review

  9. Barbara Barbara says:

    I received a free book and voluntarily chose to review it This book is than just a story about a new bride and her husband She has an attitude that could be called very strong willed aka stubborn She will need this to get safely through her story You may need some tissues There were several places that I used tissues

    Matt and Amy are such a good couple if they would just be uiet and let their hearts speak for them I'm really not one to read books that have any kind of war theme to them so I was so happy that I was able to get into this book and enjoy it without having that part damper my read The bond Amy had with her sister was so great I just loved it I think that was the best part for me
