**** 4 Out Of 5 Stars
PROMISES KEPT by Scarlett Dunn
“Lady of marriageable age with two young boys, in need of husband. I am a good cook and hard worker.”
Scarlett Dunn has done a fantastic job with the first book in the McBride Brothers’ series. It is a clean inspirational western story of a determined young woman who means to do right for herself and the two young boys she is raising. The plot will quickly grab you and keep you holding on until the end.
Victoria Eastman, raised in a saloon and now a cook in a boarding house, has placed an ad in the newspaper and soon finds herself a suitable arrangement in Promise, Wyoming to a farmer. No cowboys for this lady. But she has one big problem, when she arrives, her intended is dead.
Colt McBride, cowboy and neighbor to Victoria, isn’t quite sure what to make of her. She is young, nice looking, but why was she willing to settle for someone sight unseen and so much older? He has even started second guessing his stand on bachelorhood. But will secrets from Victoria’s past put an end to any future they have before it even begins?
As things begin to heat up between Colt and Victoria, the resident evil in the form of Euan Wallace decides he needs a wife to up his standing and to make his life look good. Follow the story to see if Victoria and Colt can take a leap of faith, fight for their future and find their happily ever after.
I would recommend this book to those looking for a good clean inspirational story. I look forward to reading others in the series.
