A delightful fun visit back to Two-Time, Texas in 1884 where Josie Johnson and Brandon Wade were about to go head to head in a newspaper battle!

Although How The West Was Wed is the third title in the Two-Time Texas series, I had no trouble picking up the series at this point. In fact, Im now going to grab the two earlier books for my curiosity is spiked for those other stories.

What you really need to know before picking up this book can be found in the cover description. Yet that doesnt really show you the banter youre about to encounter, or how two unlikely people in an unusual predicament can find a way for

What a surprise!
I expected the normal Western tale of man meets woman across a dirt road name Main St, and it chugs along from there. But not this book. It was filled with female emancipation, care for the elderly, cold case files, arson and a litany of co.plaints of life in a Western town verging into a city. The story was so well written and so accurate, I felt that I was sweating in the Texas heat. The main characters are strong, upright morals, likeable and believable. There were no

A beautiful symbol of new beginnings on the door.
The battle between real journalism and gray journalism what an idea for historical western I loved it. This one has two really marvelous characters in Josie and Brandon. What I loved was the banter between them such humor. I enjoyed the conversation that Brandon had with his daughter Haley toward the end of the book and the question comes to mind just what would he do? I loved the golden oak door. I did receive a free copy of this book and

I just finished reading, How the West Was Wed! I am so glad the author wrote it! I think this novel could possibly be her best to date!
I love the clever chapter introductions. I love the plot that ensnares one and keeps one engaged. I love the humor. The dialog is spot on and enhances the perceptive characterizations. One can feel the atmosphere of the Old West.
I am so sorry to see the series end, but I am looking forward to her next series, Haywire Brides. I have already pre-ordered the first

I always enjoy Ms. Brownley's writing style. Female leads with vim and vigor, sass and sweetness....male leads with strength, honor and orneriness. It leads to fun journeys with humor and lessons as well as entertainment. Sad to leave Two Time Texas but will join her on her next series!

Margaret Brownley is one of the BEST at writing beautiful inspirational romances!
Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Unfortunately I was not amused by this Western romance. The protagonists was as uninteresting as the newspapers she writes. Could not get into the flow of the story.
