Twice Promised by Maggie Brendan

Book Description:
Seeing how successful her older sister's "mail order marriage" has been and longing to strike out on her own, Greta Olsen answers an ad for a mail order bride in Central City, Colorado. But when she meets Jess Gifford, owner of a thriving mercantile, she begins to harbor doubts. He didn't place the ad to begin with and his business in a busy mining town leaves him little time or energy for love. To compound her troubles, she was not the only bride to answer the ad! Will either bride strike the match she hopes for?
Filled with amusing and awkward situations that will keep the reader interested and guessing, "Twice Promised "is another sweet romance from Maggie Brendan.

My Thoughts:
This was an entertaining book.  Greta has decided to answer the call to be a mail-order-bride.  She arrives in Colorado only to find that she isn't the only 'bride' to have shown up AND the man she is to marry isn't who placed the add.  Now will Jess, the man in question, want to marry either of them?
I enjoyed the characters the author brought to life in this book.  Greta and Cora were different but complimentary of each other.  I enjoyed how the history unfolded throughout the story.  Jess' character was well written and I liked Zach even if he did start out a bit underhanded.  I must say, Granny was my favorite character though!
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good romance.
