Jillian Hart grew up on the original homestead where her family still lives, went to high school where Twin Peaks was filmed, earned an English degree, and has travelled extensively. When Jillian’s not writing her stories, she reads, stops for café mochas, and hikes through the pine forests near her home in Washington State.

Janet Tronstad grew up on her family’s farm in central Montana and now lives in Pasadena, California where she is always at work on her next book. She has written over thirty books, many of them set in the fictitious town of Dry Creek, Montana where the men spend the winters gathered around the potbellied stove in the hardware store and the women make jelly in the fall.

Mail-Order Holiday Brides by Jillian Hart & Janet Tronstad Home for Christmas by Jillian Hart Christina Eberlee is alone in the world and barley getting by. Being accepted by Tom Rutger as a mail-order bride is an answer to her prayers. Or is it? Not when every man, including Tom, is measured by the kindness of the handsome marshal she met on her way to Angel Falls, Montana. Christina’s adventure includes meeting Annabelle, another mail-order bride who is headed for Dry Creek, Montana and Marshal Elijah Gable, a man who comes to her rescue more than once. Not to forget getting injured when a young ruffian steals her reticule. Elijah had never thought he’d have a second chance at love, and maybe he don’t. How can he tell his heart that this gal is already spoken for?  This was a heartwarming story that reminded me how these young woman who ventured off to marry men they never met….never knew what type of man was waiting at the end of their travels. Be sure and check out Jillian’s other historical books that take place in the quaint town of Angel Falls, Montana. Snowflakes for Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad Annabelle Hester finally had some hope in her life. She lost her mom at a young age and her dad had a bit of a temper and he was a big man. After he passed away and she was left with very little she decided to become a mail-order bride. Adam Stone had proposed and accepted her even with her weaknesses. Or so she thought. Instead of Adam she was met by his brother, Gabe. A big man, even bigger than her father. In her mind that equaled cruelty and caused her fear. Gabe quickly fell in love with his niece and nephew. His brother on the other hand was acting like a horses behind. The day his brother’s soon-to-be bride came to town….Adam left town. Gabe quickly finds himself having to explain to the woman that his brother didn’t want her and fight off a local busybody who believes the children would be better off in any home but his. Another great addition to Janet’s Dry Creek Series. She brings in some old friends from some of her other Dry Creek historical books. A really enjoyable story that also gives a glimpse into how it must have felt to step off a train into a new place to marry someone you never met, and pray that they turn out to be kind and eventually someone who will love you. This is the second time that Janet and Jillian have come together to bring us a Christmas story from their historical towns. If you haven’t read it you may want to read their first book; Mail-Order Christmas Brides. I have read every book these two ladies have written and enjoyed them all.

Two historical romantic stories about mail-order brides who don't exactly find what they're expecting, but of course all's well that ends well. The Love-Inspired books are romantic, but never explicit. You could safely let your grandmother read them, and for me personally, that's a good deal of their charm.

I was interesting how they were Mail order Brides for one man but they fell in love and married a different man. My only dislike was that the 2nd book was too short.

Both stories are wonderful! The characters are written so well by both authors, it doesn't seem as if the stories are shorter. Really enjoyable, cozy Christmas book.

I did not realize I was purchasing a book with short stories. When I read a book of fiction I want a few hours of enjoyment. I would not purchase this book again.
