Two Suitors for Alice by Angelica Rose

My review today is on the story Two Suitors for Alice. This is A Mail Order Bride Romance. I really enjoy Angelica's mail order bride stories and I'm sure you do too. This one is humorous, sweet, and well written.

Jack is a Forman for the railroad. His life is the same thing every day. He is so lonely and unhappy that he has got to the point he doesn't want to even get up in the morning.  Eugene, the railroad accountant suggests he send an ad to the paper and find a wife. Eugene helps him draw up the ad and sends it off.

Alice suffers from a broken heart. She was to be wed but then Edward broke it off to seek adventure and went to Boston. Unable to stand the shame and the pity in everyone's eyes she answers an ad in the paper. She knows that with the war just ending she wouldn't find a man to marry. Her father likes the idea of a marriage but is worried she will get out there and not have any options but to marry. He pays for a week in the hotel for both of them, a chaperone and a return ticket.

This couple is deeply attracted to each other but after they decide to marry Edward show up. Edward has every intention of taking her back to Boston with him. How could Jack compete with the well dressed man who had came after her?  A great read.
