A Bride At Last ~ Melissa Jagears ~ Litfuse tour with review and giveaway

A Bride at LastAbandoned 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?
Follow along on the Litfuse tour to read what others are saying about A Bride At Last.

My take on this book:

I became hooked on the Unexpected Bride series by Melissa Jagears after reading the first book in the series. There is something about a mail order bride story that just draws me in and Ms. Jagears provides just the right blending of drama, romance along with a great historical setting that really makes for a page turning read with a few twists that held my attention from the first page to the last.  The characters in this story really come to life, allowing me not only connect but actually care about how their story would work out. I felt like that characters stories were a bit unique compared to other mail order bride stories I have read because they have  both tried and failed with the mail order bride situation before. While A Bride at Last is the third book in the series it can easily  be read as a stand alone work, actually I somehow missed the second book but that didn't stop me from being drawn in by this story. Anyone who enjoys a fast paced story with more than a few inspirational messages along with a sweetness that will draw you in and have you hoping for the best for the characters will enjoy this story, and if your a fan of the mail order bride genre like me then a Bride At Last will be a must read for you, I will caution once you start reading it you just might not be able to put it down.
