MAIL-ORDER BRIDES OF THE WEST is a new series created in collaboration by USA Today Bestselling Authors Debra Holland and Caroline Fyffe.

The well-educated daughter of a lawyer, Trudy Bauer arrives at the St. Louis based Mail-Order Brides of the West agency full of excitement for an adventure of a lifetime. She befriends the agency's maid, Evie Davenport, and the two form a strong and lasting friendship. They vow to stay in contact through letters when Evie takes hold of her destiny and arranges a marriage on the sly. Each brave young woman is ready to face whatever an unknown groom and life in Montana can throw her way.

Meet the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Debra Holland wears several hats when it comes to writing. As a psychotherapist, she writes nonfiction books. The Essential Guide to Grief and Grieving is her first nonfiction book. More nonfiction books about grieving, boundary setting with difficult people, and relationships, are forthcoming.

Debra also writes fiction--Historial Western Romance, Contemporary Romance, Fantasy Romance, and Science Fiction. Her Montana Sky series, sweet historical Western romances, is published by Amazon Montlake. The Gods' Dream Trilogy (fantasy romance) is available on Kindle.

Alright, I'm a guy, and will admit that this is the first "Romance" type book I have ever read, which I hoped my friends wouldn't catch me with. That's how I felt before I read Trudy. Now that I have finished it, I'm telling them about the book and am loaning it out. I really enjoyed it. Honestly I did. The authors writing style was a pleasure to breeze through, leaving a clear and precise image in my mind. One may notice that there was no sex in the book, and to that I say thank you. I felt this may happen through out the book, and it turns into a tease. Just like life itself. The way one would like to believe it was back in the 1800's. The way it should be now. Her vocabulary to me appeared to be dated accurately, and made the story an interesting read, with an historical flair. And I like Trudy. She is the type of woman any respectable man would want to meet and get to know. I would read this book early in the morning to start my day, and it never failed to put a smile on my face.

Hard to put down. I wish there was a sequel for Evie and Chance.

Of all the "Mail Order Brides" book that I have read thus far, this has been the best. I guess I liked it because of the mystery that surrounds Trudy. There is definitely adventure in this book -- not only that Trudy marries a man she has never met but that her half-brother is a total scoundrel who will do anything, including murder to get the total family inheritence. I'm happy to say that Trudy & Gid outsmart the nasty half-brother and go on to live happily together as man and wife. Again with the other "Brides" book, it is not filled with explicit sex which, to me, is the true meaning of a romance. If I wanted a sex manual, I would buy one. I would highly recommend all of the "Brides" books.

this book gets a little hokey but it is a fun read.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you were heartbroken when you didn't get want you wanted? Then while you are nursing a broken heart, God blesses you beyond your wildest dreams only for you to be so wrapped up in your pain that you don't see what is right in front of you? Then He has to offer you what you wanted on a silver platter in order to get you to open your eyes? That happened to Seth in this story. It was a great reminder that God has a plan for each of us and by trusting that plan we will be truly blessed.

Debra Holland wrote Trudy's story, and Evie's was written by someone else. The two authors thought it would be fun to write their different series as if their characters knew each other.

MAIL-ORDER BRIDES OF THE WEST AGENCY SEEKS BACHELORS OF GOOD REPUTATION FOR QUALITY BRIDES PROFICIENT IN COOKING AND HOUSEKEEPING Must own a house and be able to provide for a wife.  References required, preferably from your minister or other reputable person who is familiar with your character. In your response, state details about your appearance, location, level of education, vocation, and home, as well as what you require in a wife.  $50.00 includes agency fee and train ticket. MAIL-ORDER BRIDES OF THE WEST: TRUDY by Debra Holland is a sweet, chaste western romance set in 1886. It's the second book in the Mail-Order Brides of the West series, a collaboration between authors Debra Holland and Caroline Fyffe. Even though there are interconnected characters with the other books in the series, each of the books can easily be enjoyed as standalones. Each of the brides featured in this series have been situated in their new lives through the St. Louis based Mail-Order Brides of the West agency. This particular book is the story of Trudy Bauer and Seth Flanagan.  My full review has been posted to Reading Between The Wines Book Club.

I just finished the book Trudy and cant wait to get the next one. It was a very good book. If you like western romance and mail order brides than this might be one to add to the list. I see there are more books that follow so will be checking them out too. Good luck and happy reading.

Boring and Tedious.......................................................................... Over 400 pages of dull.  Flat dialogue.   No sex at all not even after a month of marriage.  Though they  were thinking about it.  Endless description of trivia.  How he washed his hands.  How she bought eggs.   No real meat to the story.  Save your money.
