MAIL-ORDER BRIDES OF THE WEST is a new series created in collaboration by USA Today Bestselling Authors Debra Holland and Caroline Fyffe.

She befriends the agency’s maid, Evie Davenport, and the two form a strong and lasting friendship. They vow to stay in contact through letters when Evie takes hold of her destiny and arranges a marriage on the sly.

Cheryls review

Such a fun series. I was introduced to this series by Carolyn Fyffe. She authors stories about some of the other brides. This is the first book in the Mail-Order Brides of the West Series that I have read by Debra Holland. I truly enjoyed this sweet, clean romance. Each of these stories can stand alone. They reference other brides so we get a peek at how they are each doing.

The story of Trudy and Seth is sweet and sometimes humorous. Imagining her showing up in Sweetwater Springs with most of the furniture from her father’s large home in St. Louis really made me laugh. Watching two people from completely different backgrounds learn to live and love together was diverting and it warmed my heart. I can’t wait to read more of this series.
