His Accidental Bride by Carolyn Twede Frank - OPTIONAL

His Accidental Bride by Carolyn Twede Frank, 264 pages. Covenant Communication, 2021. $17.

Language: G; Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG



Jumping onto a train at the last minute seems like a good idea in the moment Dorothy runs away from her no-good older brother, but now she has nothing -- not even a plan. As luck would have it, Dorothy meets a mail-order bride with cold feet who aids Dorothy in getting far away by giving Dorothy her ticket to the small town of Craig. There Dorothy hopes to start a new life in the little town, but old habits die hard and the lies pile up as she hides her past from her new friends and the man courting her.

With the funny storyline of filling in as a mail-order bride, I expected a cute, funny read. The story of Dorothy is humorous as she falls in love with a man who is her complete opposite in most ways, but the main points of conflict to overcome were handled more seriously than I had anticipated. Franks takes twists and turns I didn’t see coming, which made the story much less cheesy than I had imagined, and was still enjoyable through to the happy ending.
