    " Cute. I don't always get all the angst people have over loving someone and getting married, but I guess that is what makes the plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 6/21/2011

    " Bah, about the only thing I liked about this(I will be nice, this book, was the historical accuracy. It all checked out. Even IF the characters were unbelievable, the plot so completely obvious, and the main characters COMPLETE Mary Sue's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 6/17/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 6/16/2011

    " This book is a "dessert" book. Something sweet that you can just devour and enjoy as a guilty pleasure. A fun, albeit cheesy in parts, little romance story. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 6/7/2011

    " It was okay. This author is not my favorite... her books are either really a hit or a miss for me... this one was just middle of the road. Adorable moments, but I was so frustrated through most of the book by their never getting together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachael | 6/4/2011

    " LOVE this author and I LOVED this book! I have read it twice now and enjoy every second. "

    " I read a lot of cheesy christian romance novels. Most of them aren't that good. This one was surprisingly enjoyable! Not great by any means, but much, much better than most! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kecia | 5/24/2011

    " I just love this author. Loved the time period, love the setting, loved the characters. Loved the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carly | 5/19/2011

    " The main couple was a little too idealistic for my taste. I prefer characters with flaws, something to make them believable. The history behind the fiction was interesting, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shwride | 5/17/2011

    " Easy read. Romance without trash. It made me homesick for the northwest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheelagh | 4/28/2011

    " I just love these turn of the century books--they are like guilty pleasures sort of like the chocolate I keep hidden! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/14/2011

    " A fun quick read! Another historical book based on brides being needed out West, this time about Mercer brides who traveled by boat all the way around S. America to get to Seattle! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan | 4/8/2011

    " I didn't know if I should give this 3 or 4 stars, because I really liked it. But I read it right after Measure of a Lady, which had so many laugh out loud moments for me, and I came away from it all giddy, and I just didn't get the same feeling from this book. But it is still a very fun romance! "
