About the book:
A Bride at Last (Bethany House, July 2015)
Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts.
Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she'd been deceived about her intended groom, she's now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she'll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony-until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy's father.
Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony's wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?

My Take: This was really an enjoyable book. I did get irritated after awhile when the two main adult characters kept looking at each others lips and think about a kiss that they shared. i felt at those times they had some very serious things that they should be thinking about other than kissing each other. this didn't take away from how much I enjoyed this book. As with most books like this alot of the problems the couple had could have been solved with better communication but that is the same with most couples I know. this is the third in a series but it can be read as a stand alone. If your like books set out west or books about mail order brides you will enjoy this book.
I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Litfuse.
