#BookReview - Wilhelmina, A Winter Bride by Hildie McQueen

Title: Wilhelmina, A Winter Bride (Brides for all Seasons, Book 1)
Author: Hildie McQueen
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Pink Door Publishing
Release Date: January 17, 2017

About the Book:

If opposites attract these two strangers will collide with the force of a raging storm. 

Out of options, Wilhelmina Wilkins heads west to marry a total stranger upon answering a mail order bride ad. What could have been a fairytale beginning turns out to be this bride’s nightmare. Instead of meeting Wilhelmina at the train station, her husband-to-be is in the center of town brawling.

Marcus Hamilton is blindsided twice, first, by a mail order bride ad posted for him by his mother and sister, and secondly, by the beauty of the woman who arrives to marry him. That the bride wishes to cancel all plans after he fails to make a good first impression will not do. How far will Marcus have to go to prove his worth?

My Review:

When life hands her a curve ball, Wilhelmina must decide whether to live miserably with her aunt in Virginia or to take a chance on a whole new life in Montana as a mail order bride to handsome Marcus Hamilton.  Their first encounter is certainly less than perfect, but can things still work out?

This is a sweet, clean romance and a quick read at only 168 pages.  It is currently free on Kindle Unlimited.  I added on the Audible version for a few dollars more, but I ended up reading the e-book version instead of the Audible version.  Actually, the book itself was quite good but I wasn't particularly fond of the narrator on the audible version.  She made Wilhelmina sound somewhat like a snob and Marcus sound a bit too cold and drab.  I don't think that was the intention of the author because when I read the actual book, I had an entirely different vision of these two characters and I loved them!  Really, really loved them.  So my advice is to stick with the book itself.  Hildie McQueen's writing is excellent.

Wilhelmina, a Winter Bride is the first book in the Brides for all Seasons series.  I'm looking forward to seeing how things work out with Tobias and Aurora in the Spring, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this amazing author, Hildie McQueen.

My Rating:
