I believe that my life would have to be very horrible for me to ever be a mail order bride. This was how Ruby felt. She leaves her home to travel to Ruby City, Idaho to marry a shopkeeper. I don’t know what I would have done if I ended up marrying the wrong person. At least you thought you knew who you were marrying through the letters that were written. This story made me laugh and cry a little. I received a copy of this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
Looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach, mail-order bride Rebecca Rice is pleased to marry her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham, until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore—proceeded by the title Deputy.

When the newlyweds realize they’ve married the wrong partners with similar names, an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own, not to mention Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .
