Review: Beneath a Prairie Moon by Kim Vogel Sawyer

About the book:
Readers rabid for the sweet historical romances of Tracie Peterson and Tamara Alexander will flock to best-selling author Kim Vogel Sawyer's prairie-set heartwarmer of high society cast-off and the western town that welcomes her. 

Abigail Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father's illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can "marry up" with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he's put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the "little city gal" in their midst. But as time goes by, his heart goes out to the teacher who tries so diligently to smooth the rough edges from the down-to-earth men. How can he teach her that perfection won't bring happiness?

My thoughts:

Beneath a Prairie Moon was such a fun and unique read. I loved the characters so much and the romance was done very well -- I liked how it progressed slowly.

The town of Spiveyville had 16 bachelors who each sent away to a matchmaker for a bride. Since it was such a big request, she felt she had to check out the men and make sure they were decent men and a good fit for her brides. I found this fun because the men had to take/pass a class in order for the matchmaker to feel comfortable setting up the matches…it was interesting to see how some of the men responded to this turn of events. ;)

The story also had quite a bit of danger -- more than I expected for a historical romance. This bumped up my enjoyment even more, because I love some good suspense.

All in all, Beneath a Prairie Moon had an excellent story and was written very well. I recommend this book and if ever there is another book set in this locale I definitely want to read it.
