Despite her spoiled upbringing, twenty-year-old Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious. She simply believes a marriage should be built on true love. Her father, however, thinks she's wasted enough time searching for the perfect husband. He wants to marry her off to one of his business partners--who is seventeen years her senior--an idea that is out of the question for Lenore.
Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister, who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry, he storms into the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention.
Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out...
This is the first book in the series Brides of Seattle. I enjoyed the book, but to be honest with you I didn't really think the main characters of the book shone through. I thought the characters of Abrianna and Wade were more prominent. I also enjoyed the character Abrianna more as well; she had more life and spark about her than Lenore. That being said this was an enjoyable book and one that has me interested in wanting to read the rest in the series.
Tracey has written better books and although this was a pleasant enough book, will I remember it next month; probably not.
Stars out of 5 : 3.5 Nice book, easy read, but forgettable. If you're looking for a book to while away a few hours, this one could be for you.
