“To Love a Stranger” by Colleen Coble is book 4 in the Wyoming Series and was released in July 2016. I am a huge fan of Colleen Coble so I was very excited to read this book although I haven’t read the other books in the Wyoming series.
In order to preserve her family’s good name; Bessie moves to Wyoming to become the wife of a man shes never ment after finding out her sister has been writing him and married him using Beesie’s name.
Jasper is obviously shocked when a different woman shows up off the stagecoach but over time is pleasantly surprised. Bessie is full of spunk, determination, and love as she tries to get use to the west and the shocking day to day events that are very different from her upbringing.
This story was fun to read, well written, and is a clean dramatic romance set in the west. I loved it!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.
Bessie Randall had no intention of moving to Wyoming. But could the life she would never choose be better than the one she had planned?
Bessie is shocked when she finds out that her sister Lenore has used her name to correspond with a soldier she’s never met—and that she’s actually married the man by proxy with Bessie’s name. And if Bessie contests it, her sister could go to jail for forgery. Bessie has always felt responsible for her younger sister, and she believes she has no choice but to do the honorable thing and travel west to meet up with Jasper Mendenhall.
With his sister Jessica’s reprimand about marrying sight-unseen still ringing in his ears, Jasper is shocked when he meets the stagecoach. The little wren who meets him is not the beauty whose picture he holds in his hand. Jasper plans to annul the marriage and send Bessie back to Boston. She’s a city girl and he’s not sure she could even survive—much less be happy—at Fort Bowie.
But Jasper’s orders to return to Fort Bowie are moved up, and he has no choice but to take Bessie with him. To his surprise, he finds much to like in the quiet young woman: things like humor and grit. But even those qualities may not be enough as the Apaches move in, determined to eradicate the fort in their midst. Can God mend their hearts together in spite of the circumstances?
