A Bride in Store
September 2, 2014
Back Cover Description:
Impatient to meet her intended groom and help him grow his general store, mail-order bride Eliza Cantrell sets out on her travels a week early. But her plan goes sadly awry when her train is held up by robbers who steal her dowry and Axel, her groom-to-be, isn’t even in town when she finally arrives. Axel’s business partner, William Stanton, has no head for business and would much rather be a doctor. When his friend’s mail-order bride arrives in town with no money and no groom in sight, he feels responsible and lets her help around the store–where she quickly proves she’s much more adept at business than he ever will be. The sparks that fly between Will and Eliza as they work together in close quarters are hard to ignore, but Eliza is meant for Axel and a future with the store, while Will is biding his time until he can afford medical school. However, their troubles are far from over when Axel finally returns, and soon both Will and Eliza must decide what they’re willing to sacrifice to chase their dreams–or if God has a new dream in store for them both

I enjoyed reading this novel by Melissa Jagears! A bride in Store has a great story line and very interesting characters. It’s a bit of a slow read to begin with and I was able to put it down and go about my day. However, when I reached the half way point in this novel it picked up and I wasn’t able to put this novel back down. This novel is a great rainy day read. I plan to read more novels by Melissa Jagears! I recommend that you read this novel too!
