Aug 10, 2018 rated it it was amazing
Mail order bride books can sometimes become redundant. Bride comes west, falls in love and lives happily ever after. I love that Vivi Holt does not follow this method, but each time she writes a mail order bride story, it is a fresh new story with a twist that is not expected. This story is about Hattie, a debutante from New York who's family has fallen on hard times and is forced to go to California to marry a miner. On her way there, the stagecoach is held up, and little does Hattie know who t ...more

Hattie (Cowboys and Debutantes - Book 4 )
By: Vivi Holt
Hattie is book four in Cowboys and Debutantes Series. I love these Mail order brides stories and Vivi Holt did not disappoint me. She captured me right at the start and I was hooked. Hattie is one of those books I could not put down. Hattie, A Debutante from New York had no choice but to go west as a mail order bride after her father lost his fortune. I felt so sorry for Hattie, only eighteen and going to Coloma mining town to marry a miner s

A touching and delightful sweet romance!

Hattie is a well-written book that will keep you entertained from the beginning to the end. This story is full of action, romance and misfortunes. The plot moves at a good quick pace keeping in line with a novella. A fresh, new story line that was quick to read, captivating, and kept my attention to the very end. The characters were well developed and easy to like. This author knows how to create a story with enough romance and action to keep the reader e

Hattie, the fourth book in the Cowboy and Debutantes series by Vivi Holt is another delightful take on the mail order bride genre. In this story New York debutante Hattie Stout is sent from her home by her father when her wealthy fiancé dumps her after the family faces financial hardship. As a last resort, Hattie’s family ships her off to a small mining town out west as a “mail order bride.” Unfortunately, her intended is a criminal who robbed the stage coach she was traveling in!

Bandit's Bride

The family has been swindled and bankrupted; three debutante sisters, the pride of society, have now lost all social standing--and any promises made by aspiring suitors have been forgone. Papa's solution? Ship them off as mail-order brides. Hattie's stagecoach is robbed on the last leg of her journey west. Things go downhill from there. Somehow sister Della had an easier time, emotionally, although she goes through her own culture shock (she has her own book but each story stands

Sweet Historical Romance
I was surprised the sisters didn’t end up closer to each other! While several states away, poor Hattie is practically destitute after for marriage! Thankfully the sheriff can’t seem to stay very far away!
Trigger alert. There’s prostitution, physical abuse, and kidnapping in this one. While the sordid details are all fairly hidden, the situations are pretty major part of the story.
I know it’s the same narrator, but I liked her voice more in this
I listened to this one on audio. Meghan Kelly is an amazing narrator that brings to life the emotions and characteristics of the characters in a book.

This book is another installment in the series. You can read/listen to this one without having read the others.

I loved the characters of this book. The twists and turns that happen in this book are great! I was not expecting some things to happen and when they did, I thought wow, that's good writing.

I listened to the audiobook, and I think the narrator does a fantastic job, which is important because a poor narrator can ruin a good book.
Hattie is a well-written book, and I didn’t want to take a break and I listened to it in one sitting. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more of Vivi Holt’s books.

A Mail Order Bride story

that is the grittiest one I have ever read. Hattie leaves NYC to become a bride but one thing after another goes wrong. Can she end up with the right cowboy or will something else go wrong? Clean read.

Another great story

Wow! This character got put through the wringer....I'm impressed that she maintained her good attitude and spunk in a realistic way. A great match for her didn't seem possible but it all worked out in the end.

Overcoming all obstacles

This is Hattie and Ed's story. A girl from a wealthy family who lost everything. A sheriff who rarely thought about a home and family. Will overcoming treachery and loss be enough to see them through?

Ms. Holt knows how to draw her reader in with these short story. I couldn’t even begin to think how these girls felt losing everything from their families money to the life as they know it all to be sent to marry a man they didn’t know. My heart really went out to them. I listened to this in a box set seeing how each girl had to deal with her own issues. They show how strong they are, what they are willing to do, to make a new life for them. As things start going well there is news from home tha ...more
