Chadwick Hamilton is the son of a
prestigious family, but in Texas he is known as a gambler
and a rogue. When he wins a mail order bride in a poker
game, he is expecting a quiet debutante. What he got was a
feisty independent woman.
Cherry Bloom, a mail order bride,
traveled by train to Texas to meet her fiancé only to find
out he gambled her away in a poker game. Cherry is not what
Chad thinks she should be and worries that he will find out
about her past, especially when she starts to have feelings
for her new husband.
Mail Order Bride has one
of my favorite plot designs, and for the most part, it lived
up to my expectations. I liked the writing and the plot,
but I found some important details were left out. Chad is
angry about being betrayed so badly in the past that he has
a hard time trusting Cherry, but we are never told what
happened and Cherry seemed too clueless about household
tasks for her upbringing. I did like Mail Order Bride
despite these issues.
