My thoughts:

Mail Order Bride: A Banker’s Wife (Mail Order Montana) (A Western Romance Book) by Leah Laurens is a delightful Western Romance, which has much to offer readers. Part of a series, but it can be read as a stand alone. It is set in Montana.

This is the story of Sarah Ackerman who arrives in Montana as a Mail Order Bride and has a useless scarred arm where she meets John Bowman, who is a widower, has a bit of a temper,  and two young children. You see Sarah arrives as her younger sister, Carrie, to marry John.

There are a few spots that felt a bit slow to me but picked nicely to bring a well paced tale filled with bank robbers, kidnappers, town gossips, a couple of busy bodies, and soiled doves.
The mystery, romance, and suspense will keep readers turning pages as their captivated by the strong willed characters and a plot that flows seamlesly and effortlessly.

A joy to read! An amazing Western Romance. A must read and a keeper.
