“The Fairy Tale Bride” by Emma Ashwood

Bella was very young when her parents were killed in a fire that had been accidentally started by her uncle. She didn’t remember how the fire had started, only that it had taken the lives of both of her parents. Her uncle’s family took her in, but she grew up as more of a household servant than as a member of their family.

Her life was never easy, and then her uncle ran into some questionable businessmen who convinced him that he could solve several of their money problems by “selling” Bella as a mail order bride and sending her to marry a rancher in Montana whether she wanted to go or not.

This was a very quick read and I finished it in one sitting. I enjoy reading mail order bride stories, and this was a fun one. It was not quite Cinderella, but the similarities between the two were there and easy to notice for anyone looking. The book could have used a little more proofreading, but was still a very enjoyable tale.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and would gladly read more books by this author in the future.
