My Review:
August 1888 finds Greta Olsen and Cora Johnson arriving in Central City, Colorado to be mail order brides, what they are not aware of on the train however, is that they are there for the same groom.  No he wasn't a bigamist looking for two wives, his brother had written on his behalf to the two women, with the plan that the groom could choose between the two.  What the brother, Zach did not count on, was the fact that his brother Jess would insist he would have to court one of the girls.
Greta, does not realize that Jess and Zach are the brothers of her beloved fiance Brian, who died the previous year, but she does realize quickly that the brother who is supposed to be courting her, and the one she is pledged to marry is not the brother she is attracted to.  What will she do?
I really enjoyed this book, I read the first book in this series about Greta's sister Catherine, and enjoyed this one just as much as I did the first one.  I loved learning the legend behind the Blue Willow china, since I collect it also.  A great book, very good story!  Lots of funny and quirky moments, and I loved Greta's take charge personality, and Cora's sweet personality that sees the best in everyone, and her love for the Lord is contagious!  327 pages, US $14.99 4 stars.
