Book Review Part 4: Mail Order Brides for Sale: The Remington Sisters

This week I'm featuring Celia Yeary's Lola.

Brought up in the wealth and comfort of Eastern “old money” in staid and proper Philadelphia, the Remington sisters are forced to scatter to the four winds and become mail-order brides. In order to gain a fortune, their sinister step-father, Josiah Bloodworth, has made plans to marry them off in loveless marriages. Time is running out, and no matter what lies ahead in their uncertain futures, it has to be better than the evil they’re running from…

LOLA: Sensible Lola Remington, the eldest of the four sisters, must be certain the others are on their way to safety before she can think of fleeing Philadelphia herself. With the help of a local bridal agency, Lola finds the perfect husband for herself—in the wild countryside of Texas. Jack Rains owns a ranch and he’s in need of a bride—and children, of course! But just when Lola starts to believe there might be a future for them, she discovers a hidden letter from another woman…Jack’s first wife.

My Review:
What a fun concept!! Four sisters find themselves being sold off to four men by their unscrupulous step-father. And these men don't appear to be the most upstanding of gentlemen either. So instead of facing a future bought and paid for, they gamble on an unknown future as mail order brides, hoping they didn't land in a worse situation.

Lola finds herself married to a Texas rancher and thrown into the adventures of ranch life during a range war. She also finds herself in a war for her husband in more ways than one. As Lola and Jack struggle to find their happily-ever-after together, more dangers arrive threatening to take their future away.  Hang on! It's quite the adventure!!  And you may find yourself wanting to snuggle under the stars too!
