Train Station Bride by Holly Bush

Julie Crawford is going to escape her domineering mother by running away and marrying.  That will prevent her parents from trying to take her back home again.  She had written this man for a year and had agreed to marry him, what could go wrong?

Goddess Fish Blog and Holly Bush allowed me to read ebook of this story for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy of it on Amazon now. I'd read this author in the past and enjoyed her book, so I was anxious to read this one, too.  She didn't disappoint me.

Who would have guessed there would be TWO men waiting for wives at the train station?  And when the train made so much noise, she found herself suddenly married to the wrong man!

Ms. Bush's tales are always sweet and endearing.  There is a bit of sex in the story, but they're a married couple so that's not unusual.

Jake is living in his parent's house.  He has raised his sisters and given them land and some money to begin their families.  He was looking for a work partner that could feed him, keep the house clean and maybe work in the fields with him.  He also wants a son.

Julie grew up in Boston and is used to the fine things in life.  She doesn't know how to cook.  She has lady's hands, no calluses.  But she's willing to learn; she doesn't want to go back.  The problem is that Julie is carrying a secret.  And she doesn't tell Jake about it until it's almost too late.

This is a great love story about young woman who hadn't had the strength to stand up to her mother.  By marrying Jake, she has learned that her mother wasn't right about a lot of things and she's willing to sacrifice even her happiness with Jake to make it right.

The author uses the emotional trauma well, making the story one you won't forget about quickly.  I'm hoping she'll be writing another story because I've enjoyed the two I've read.  I'd read another.

Why don't you buy a copy of this and see if you relate to these characters as much as I have?  I think you'll agree it's a good read.

Holly will be awarding a $25 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter, so don't miss out commenting on the various blog sites for more chances.  Here is where to find the list:  Blog Tour List

I've been enjoying following the tour. Thank you for another great review. It love the idea that it was mistaken identity but people aren't always what they seem and you don't always know what you really are looking for
