His Heartbroken Bride (The Brides of Paradise Ranch - Book 4)


Libby Chance Sims returns to her adoptive home in Wyoming territory with her two young sons, with the weight of the world pressing heavily on her shoulders. After her husband was killed Libby fled her home of ten years in the dark of night, hoping to leave the ugliness of her past behind. When she returns to the last place she experienced true happiness, memories of what could have been tease her, reminding her of young love lost as well as a sense of belonging. Once settled in Haskell, Libby has her first taste of happiness when Mason Montrose walks back in her life. Promise and hope swell in heart - until her dreams are threatened. Can Libby ever find her happily ever after?

Libby and Mason have a wagon-full of obstacles dropped at their feet from the very onset of their relationship. A couple of fragile hearts longing for their missing half, struggling to form a blended family while a stalker threatens to derail their happiness. Readers will find it hard not to fall for this couple! Author Merry Farmer has created a novella with many strengths - unique and open-minded characters, periodical accuracies from style of dress to politics, as well as a quirky town one would like to visit. The pacing of the tale lagged and events were at-times predictable, but the overall enjoyment of the novella will keep the reader invested and laughing to its final word.
