A Marriage Mishap Creates an Awkward Love Triangle in this Silver Mining Town

Looking forward to a quiet life and a full stomach, mail-order bride Rebecca Rice is pleased to marry her shopkeeper intended, Mr. Fordham, until the justice of the peace calls him Thaddeus, not Theodore—proceeded by the title Deputy.

Is it possible to marry the wrong man?

When the newlyweds realize they’ve married the wrong partners with similar names, an annulment seems in order—and fast, since Rebecca’s true intended is impatient to claim her as his own, not to mention Rebecca would never marry a lawman like her father. But when the legalities take longer than expected, Rebecca wonders if Tad wasn’t the right husband for her all along. . . .

Susanne Dietze has quickly become a must-read author for me. This novel utterly charmed me. What a fun twist on the mail-order bride scenario! Dietze creates quite a predicament for her characters, and the result is a thoroughly enjoyable read. I alternately cringed and laughed out loud as the story progressed, as Rebecca, Thad, and Theodore attempt to work through the awkwardness of the situation. Danger from a notorious gang of stagecoach robbers adds suspense and even a bit of surprising humor. Don't miss this delightful story!
