The Anonymous Bride - Book One in the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series

By Vickie McDonough


Three mail-orders brides arrive in Lookout, Texas, each expecting to marry the local marshal. But—he didn't order a bride. When a contest ensues to discover which bride will make him the best wife, there is a surprise fourth entry--an anonymous one. Mayhem occurs as the whole town tries to figure out who the anonymous bride is, and the mayor pressures the marshal to pick a bride or lose his job. Will Marshal Davis tuck tail and run for the hills? Or will he lose his heart and his bachelorhood?

Book Takeaway:

The is a story about forgiveness. It's about letting go of past hurts--big and small--and forgiving and moving on.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wondered how a man would handle receiving a mail-order bride that he didn't order. I thought it was a fun and different premise and decided to write the story.
