The Bride Bargain (MFM) by Sofia Hunt (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.99
Categories: Historical, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

The book was well written, but I found the story line difficult to tolerate. I stopped reading several times, disgusted with the direction of plot. Why couldn't Lucy be told that her cooking and singing were bad? Even when she was no longer associating with Constance, she has no honest friends. Why did the entire town band together to keep up this deception, when her gossip was so destructive? Even Amelia, who thinks only of herself never says anything. In my opinion this makes Lucy lack depth and annoying. The author did not allow Lucy to grow beyond sexual exploration. Honestly why must any female lead be portrayed as too stupid to see that she has burned dinner, when she cooks the entire meal? The other defects may be softened by saying each person is who she is and real change is rare, but not burnt food.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

A somewhat different kind of romance in that the heroine is a really nice lady with some glaring problems--she can't cook, she really can't sing, and she gossips a great deal. The problem is that she is totally unaware of her glaring faults and also has a list of all the proper qualities she wants in a husband. One of the last of the women in the current "shipment" of brides on one of the bride's trains, she is nearly at the end of her contract and the contracting parties will have to pay her way home, find her a "situation" or reimburse for keeping her with room and board. So two brothers are convinced it would be in their best interest to "marry" her just for one month, when an annulment can be obtained if the marriage is not consummated. It is the sort of romance that seems to be without any real solution as the heroine continues to persist in her habits of gossiping, nearly poisoning those who eat her cooking--not really, but it seems that way--and torturing everyone who attends church with her singing. In addition, there are some political ramifications to the brothers' situation, some social consequences to the gossiping, and some heartbreak possibly in store for all the main characters. Well written and a story that will hold the reader's interest from the start. Even though it is fiction, it is based on a time in America's historical development of the West and will please those who enjoy historical romance.
