Summary: 

It All Started with an Ad in a Mail Order Bride Catalogue . . .

Melvin Hitchcock of the Hitching Post Mail Order Bride Catalog isn’t dishonest—not exactly. If he tweaks his clients’ applications a bit, it’s because he’s looking out for their best interests.

This charming bouquet of novellas introduces four Hitching Post prospects in the year 1870, each one eager for second chances . . . and hungry for happiness. Year in, year out, they’ll learn that love often comes in unexpected packages.

And Then Came Spring by Margaret Brownley

Mary-Jo has been unlucky all her life. But who would guess she’d travel halfway across the country to meet her match . . . only to find him dead!

An Ever-After Summer by Debra Clopton

Ellie had no idea she’s not what Matthew ordered. And what’s wrong with being a “Bible thumper” anyway? She’s determined to show him she’s tougher than she looks—and just the girl he needs.

Autumn’s Angel by Robin Lee Hatcher

Luvena would be perfect for Clay if she didn’t come with kids. But kids are a deal breaker, especially in a rough-and-trouble mining town. The trouble is, there’s no money to send them back. . .

Winter Wedding Bells by Mary Connealy
David’s convinced he’s not long for the world. He needs someone to mother his boys when he’s gone—nothing more. Can plucky Irish Megan convince him to work at living instead of dying?

 

Rating: 5

Reason for rating: This was a lovely book and a quick read. Even though the stories were all unique and individual, they all seemed to go together, tied by the common thread of the Hitching Post catalogue (what a great name for it too, don’t you think?). It was a joy to read how each of the characters resolved the problem of a less than honest matchmaker. While I loved all the stories, I think An Ever-After Summer was my favorite. Spunky Ellie just resonated with me as the kind of character I would be in a story like this and she tugged at my heartstrings. Every story was full of twists and surprises you didn’t see coming and that kept me eager to keep reading. Also, every story was a great length that I could finish it in one setting – a plus in my sometimes time harried life. I loved how every writer could work from a similar premise and yet come away with four such unique stories. All in all, if you like clean romance, especially historical romance, you should definitely pick up this book. It will have you laughing and crying and rooting for the characters to get together in every story.
