Overview

An Angel in the Mail, set in 1861, unites Angel Hardwick and Nathan Hale, father of five, who is desperate for a wife to straighten his life out. Nate's looking for someone who loves children and can easily take over the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Instead, he is getting Angel, whose culinary knowledge consists of weekly meetings with Cook to decide the family's menu.

Angel , a strong-minded young woman, is resigned to her fate and determined to make the best of her situation. But will her new husband allow for mistakes? Or will he send her packing when she burns meals and misplaces children?

Nate just wants a peaceful, well-run household, without the distraction of an attractive wife. However, his beautiful wife with a very distractible body is not giving him peace. Somebody lied, because despite what he was told by the Bride Agency, this beauty knows nothing about running a home, but she sure sets him on fire at night.

To survive, Nate and Angel have to come to a working arrangement, but will they be able to find a happily ever after with someone working behind the scenes to destroy their relationship?

Not what you might expect, and every bit as delightful as you might hope. Angelina Hardwick lives high among the upper crust of New York society, yet when her world comes tumbling down, she lifts her chin and faces the storm with grit, humor, and moments of bumbling hilarity. With no viable choices or expectations after being widowed with five children, Nathan Hale of Oregon City, Oregon needs a life-partner badly, and turns to the most astounding service ever offered in Western American history, the mail-order bride. It was a joy to ride along on the funny, poignant, tender, and even treacherous road these two must follow to find their future. Well done. I purchased this book online and have given this review freely and without monetary compensation.

I truly enjoy historical romances and this was a good. Loaded with plot twists, Hutton takes us on a wild ride. I did not expect to like Angel when we first met her. Vapid and pampered she came off as someone who would perhaps be a little hard to stomach in a new situation. Hutton shows us her skill when she makes this woman not only likable but believable. Nathan Hale is also one of the better romance male characters I’ve read. Not overbearing and willing to help his wife adjust (if only, at first, because she has a nice body), he’s a genuinely good guy and fun to read. What’s more, you know those five kids are going to grow up to be genuine good and kind. Speaking of children, Ms. Hutton writes them well. The four that can speak come off as very real and age appropriate. One of my favorite interactions with the kids comes early on in the novel when Nathan takes the carrots from the baby’s plate afraid that she’ll choke and one of the little boys says, “I’m choking, steal my carrots too.” A very real reaction. As a result of such well formed characters, this novel was a treat to read. Hutton doesn’t drag out the parts of the storyline that shouldn’t be. She gets to the point and gets there in a way that the reader believes and enjoys. I recommend this book for all romance readers as a fun read.

Callie Hutton has an amazing way of making you fall in love with her characters from page one. I laughed with them, cried with them and sometimes did both simultaneously. Angel in the Mail is a wonderful story about two lost souls who couldn't be more opposite if they tried. Love finds a way of turning differences into strengths as Nate realizes his mail order bride is nothing like what he requested but exactly what he needs. When Angel finds herself the overnight step-mother of five children, her heart makes up for what her skills & experience lack. A delightful and witty read that will fill your heart with warm fuzzies!
