The prolific Shanna Hatfield’s output could keep the average reader occupied forever. As long as she puts out delight filled stories like this one, that’s not a chore. I love her details of farm chores, equipment, male friendships and town/rural life in 1890’s Oregon. Allie and Ben are a charming couple who face conflicts from their past to bond in sudden marshes. One big surprise rattled me. I was afraid that easygoing Ben and all his ties would not be mend ...more
great reading. "Bobbins and Boots" is the fourth book in the series but can stand
alone. Some people are not whom they claim to be as Allie finds out when she
arrives as a mail-order bride. Through an act of kindness mixed with insanity Ben
steps up to the challenge. What challenge? Read the book!
Shanna'a books are fun, exciting, characters you'll love and lessons to learn.

I've read all the Baker City Brides so far and loved them all. Ben and Allies story was explosive from the very first page. I've loved Ben from the first book. Allie comes to town as a mail order bride not knowing that her husband to be is a horrible person. There are some drop your jaw surprises in this book that I never ever saw coming. A definite must, must read for any diehard romantics. I so hope that there will be more books coming for the Baker City Brides.
I have enjoyed this series set in Baker City. The city is located about 1/2 way between our home and that of our daughter, so when we travel to see her, we often stay overnight there.
The stories of the Jordan family and are love stories that a are fun a and wholesome.
Another winner from the author. A beautifully written story with fantastically charming and memorable characters. Here's a story that is clean so all ages can enjoy a great read. There's caring, loving and some comedy. I loved it. Hated to put it down to eat or sleep. Wish I could give more stars, it deserves them.
This book is so much fun to read, never know what is going to happen next. Allie is a mail order bride that finds out her intended is who she expected. Ben marries her to save her from bad guy. Love their story. Such a enjoyable book, I was given an opportunity to read an advanced copy of the book and it is a excellent book.
While this book is part of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone story. It is a clean romance.
In addition to blogging and eating too much chocolate, she is completely smitten with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.
