I really loved Alice Carter and Dr. Jeremiah Killarney. It would be hard enough to be a mail order bride, but to have a child also would be near impossible. I hope to read the first three books in the series because I enjoyed this one so much. I loved that Alice was a doctor also. It was nice that Jeremiah could see her as a doctor once he saw her work. I received a copy of this as an ebook from the author for a fair and honest opinion.
Alice Carter found herself a widow, her doctor husband murdered as he left the hospital where he worked. Alice, too, is a doctor and thought she wouldn’t have any trouble finding a position with the hospital where her husband had been so well regarded.
She was wrong. Seems no one wanted a female doctor, especially one in mourning. Seeing no other way out, Alice becomes a mail-order bride to a doctor in Hope’s Crossing in the Montana Territory.
Dr. Jeremiah Kilarney, needs help. He needs a nurse to assist him with his patients. Knowing he has to marry the woman or she’ll be inundated with marriage proposals from the lonely miners, he goes to Matchmaker & Co. Specifying his need for a nurse or someone willing to be trained as one, he’s surprised when Alice Carter, doctor, steps out of the stagecoach with her precocious daughter Melly.
Can Alice and Jeremiah have a future when ghosts from her past still hold her heart?
Hope’s Crossing can be the answer to their future or the end of their dreams.
