Twice A Bride

This book Twice A Bride is centered mostly around widow, Willow Peterson. After experiencing loss with the death of her husband and then the death of her beloved Father, she didn't know if she would ever find happiness in her life again.

Willow discovered that she not only could find enjoyment in life again, but that her heart would be ready to love again. She found more than a job when she applied to the position of Photograph Painter.

I found this book to be very well written. Mona Hodgson is a good and pure author. If you like old fashioned romances set in the old times, you will enjoy this book.

I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group and was in no way paid for this review.

Read Chapter One here...

To Love and Cherish

In this book, you meet the main characters Melinda and Evan. Melinda is working as a Lady's maid in Cleveland, while Evan is an employee on Bridal Veil island. Evan has professed his love for Melinda however, has not proposed to her. Melinda does not understand the delay.

After a big storm hits the island, Melinda impulsively leaves her place of employment and travels to Evan. She is sure that he will marry her as soon as she arrives. Again, she does not understand the delay.

I was not very impressed with To Love and Cherish authored by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. I found the book to be a little too "flowery" and not enough substance. There is 31 chapters and this book didn't grab me until Chapter 26. That's not my type of book.

I received this book complimentary from Bethany House in exchange for this review. These opinions are my own and I was not paid to submit this review.
