Saving the Mail Order Bride (Outlaw Mail Order Brides, #2)Saving the Mail Order Bride,


 by Linda Broday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Saving the Mail Order Bride, by Linda Broday is a 2019 Sourcebooks Casablanca publication.

Before Jack Bowdre can meet up with his bride-to be, he’s arrested. As he is being transported to jail, he winds up traveling with a fiery young lady he finds himself attracted to despite his situation. But, when their stagecoach crashes, he discovers the lovely lady is none other than Nora Kane, his mail order bride.

While Jack’s situation is obvious, Nora has a few secrets some folks are determined see remain that way. This means that both Jack and Nora have a price on their heads and must stick together- at least for now.

Despite the attraction they feel towards each other, the tension between them simmers beneath the surface as they struggle to survive. Along the way they must learn how to trust each other with their deepest secrets, thoughts, and fears. However, as their enemies begin closing in on them, the couple may end up separated by circumstances beyond their control- if they make it out alive- that is.

The momentum of the first book in this new series carries over into this second installment without a hitch. The only thing different, in my opinion, was that the story seemed to have a slightly lighter tone despite the serious circumstances the couple face. That’s not a bad thing, just an observation.
I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced western style adventure. Nora and Jack are both wonderful characters! I think I warmed up to Nora a little more because of her positive attitude and fierce determination. Jack is carrying around some heavy baggage, which caused him to hold back on expressing his conflicted feelings and emotions.

The author did a terrific job of depicting the landscape, and scenery, as well as the social mores and attitudes of the time period. There’s plenty of suspense and danger to keep readers alert and engaged in the story, but there’s also a lot of humor and warmth in these pages, as well.

The romance is a little emotional at times, moderately angsty, but very tender and romantic. What more could you ask for?

This is another well-written, highly entertaining installment in the series! I'm feeling pretty excited about the next chapter in the ‘Outlaw Mail Order Brides’ series.













PRAISE FOR SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE:





Broday continues her Outlaw Mail Order Brides historical Western romance series with an interesting premise…” -- Kirkus “The adventure and dangers kept the pages turning - delivering quite a few surprises and heart-pounding moments. And generously balanced in were moments of peace and beauty.” -- Sunshine Lake Reviews “I loved every deep ravine-gun blazing-twist of this book.” 
-- Glenda (Goodreads reviewer) “Linda Broday has spun another great adventure that is full of surprises, has you rooting for the outlaws and people of Hope's Crossing, and wanting some ‘lawmen,’ ‘businessmen,’ and other ‘questionable men’ to find their deaths. It'll make you question who should be called an outlaw in this period of time.” 
-- Stephanie (Goodreads reviewer)








I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over twenty historical western romance novels and short stories. I reside in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed, and at times if the breeze is just right, I can hear their voices whispering in the wind. Texas’ rich history is one reason I set all my stories here where cowboys are still caretakers of the land. I’m inspired every day by their immense dedication and love for the wide open spaces. When I’m not writing, I collect old coins and I’ve also been accused (quite unfairly I might add) of making a nuisance of myself at museums, libraries, and historical places. I’m also a movie buff and love sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic unfold on the screen. As long as I’m confessingchocolate is my best friend. It just soothes my soul.

  1. I'm so happy you liked Jack and Nora. Thank you for the wonderful review of the book. I had so much fun with this couple who played off each other perfectly. Nora didn't let Jack get by with anything and that frustrated him to no end. Thank you also for the compliment about depicting the setting. It's outside my back door.

    I hope readers will give it a try and find the others. Book #3 - The Mail Order Bride's Secret - will be out in January. But I'll have a novella in Longing for a Cowboy Christmas in September with another couple from this series.

  2. I love that there is some humor infused along the way. I think that makes romance so much sweeter. Great review!
