The Cowboy's Surprise Bride by Linda Ford

My book review today is a Love Inspired Historical Book, one of the Cowboys of Eden Series by Linda Ford. I really enjoyed this book. I don't read a lot of historicals but I received this one in the mail and I do love Linda's writing. This one was humorous and captivating. I loved her characters, they were all so messed up and flawed but of course they all straightened up in the end and I'm sure they all lived happily ever after. I love the struggles they each had with their own desires and God's will for them. It's so nice to know that you aren't the only one who struggles with trusting God.

Eddie Gardiner was the adopted son of a wealthy Englishman. He has spent his whole life trying to be everything his father wants him to be. He has moved to Canada and started a ranch that would be the exact copy of his father's English home. Now he was ready to marry, he sent his request to a woman he had spent time with. He hasn't received an answer yet but has no doubt Margret will come after all, they had a connection, right? He sends her and a companion tickets to come to him without receiving an answer.

Margaret has no intention of crossing an ocean and living in a wilderness. She shares her letters with Linette Edwards. Linette's father has arranged for her to marry a fat, old man and she sees this marriage as a way out. She writes Eddie a letter saying she will take Margaret's place and puts it in Margaret's refusal to marry him. When the tickets come with a note to come before winter, Linette assumes he has received her letter and crosses the ocean and the country to come as quick as she can.

Eddie is shocked when Linette gets off the stagecoach and refuses to marry her. Linette turns up with an orphan who fears men and a recent widow who is miserable and has every intention of making every one else miserable too. They are unable to return to civilization due to weather so she sets out to prove that she will make his a good pioneer wife. Eddie doesn't want a pioneer wife but a lady of the manor. The struggle of these four in a tiny two room cabin is quite funny. I know you will love their adventures. You can find out more about Linette's books at:

You need to run out and get a copy, I know you will love it. God bless you all. Have a great week end.
