Review: Mail-Order Christmas Brides: Her Christmas Family\Christmas Stars for Dry Creek by Jillian Hart and Janet Tronstad

About the book:

Her Christmas Family by Jillian Hart

"Please be my ma for Christmas." Felicity Sawyer can't resist little Gertie's heartfelt letter. Tate Winters seeks a bride for Gertie's sake, not his own. But as his reserve thaws before Felicity's sunny optimism, this new family learns that togetherness is the best way to celebrate the season.

Christmas Stars for Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad

Eleanor McBride's outgrown her dreams of romance—but not her wishes for motherhood. Wedding Sergeant Adam Martin will give her a daughter to cherish. Yet it's not just shy, sweet Hannah who's captured her affections. And Eleanor's arrival in Dry Creek could be the start of a journey to true love.…

My thoughts:

Oh, I loved this book so much! From the opening scene of Her Christmas Story, I was drawn into the story!  Gertie and her father, Tate, were waiting at the train station for Felicity, the mail-order bride. Tate couldn't believe that Felicity was the beautiful blond woman - he was expecting someone more homely. He automatically concludes that she will leave him when she finds out about him and his past, but so much happens and there are some surprising twists.

After I finished Her Christmas Story (and since I loved it so much) I didn't know how Christmas Stars for Dry Creek could meet the greatness of that story, but it did! It was just as wonderful! There was some heartache, with Adam and his daughter Hannah, but that just made the story and characters more special.

The characters from both stories were very charming and each had their own unique qualities that I loved! As a whole, this book was fantastic! Individually these books were wonderful - Mail-Order Christmas Brides is a definite win in my opinion! :) I only wish the stories would have been longer...

I definitely recommend this book! It was a great Christmas read!
