Boaz's Wager by Ruth Ann Nordin
Montana Romance Collection Book 2
Eva Connealy was heading to Montana to be a schoolteacher. Her former student Rachel Larson was going as a mail-order bride. Suddenly a stage robbery changed both of their plans. The robbers weren't able to get money so they decided to go to a town lacking in women and auction them off, like measly cattle that had no choice.
Boaz Grady had fell off the deep end when his wife died in childbirth. After several years of being the town drunk he finally pulled his life together. Now he wanted his kids with him, for that he would need a wife. Good think he ran across his friend Herb and the auction.
Fears can become so deep that they paralyze us. Boaz had those kind of fears. If one wife died...another one could as well. This is also a reminder that life could be hard back in the day. Another good story from Ruth Ann Nordin and plenty of tidbits to get the reader wondering what will happen with Patty and Greg in the third book, Patty's Gamble. The first book in the series is Mitch's Win.

It was Ok........Barely
Between 2 and 3 stars. The old I'll never get over my dead wife or have sex with my new wife story. Yeah. OK. After a three year drunk Boaz sobers up and marries Eva. He buys her at an auction from her kidnappers. Nobody seems to find this criminal behavior odd. Including the brides who write their folks the next day and tell them their married. But the biggest annoyance was Eva. A snobby woman who is constantly buying books and talking about classical music . Does she ever wonder how Boaz is paying for all these book? Nope. Just goes in every day and orders more. I'm telling you. It won't be long before Boaz is back on the sauce. Who could blame him? His first wife was frigid and the second is a know it all snob.

I love all of the books that Ruth Ann writes! The way she brings characters in from other books is the best. I love reading what happens to characters from other books and look forward to reading more just to see who she includes. I highly recommend all of her books.Was this review helpful?
