The Christmas Bride by Jenna Brandt, is a sweet story set in 1870 with our heroine Lucy being the manager of a saloon. The problem is that her betrothed Matthew is the preacher's son. What could be more mismatched than that? But life is not always simple and this is a story of second chances and making the best of the life you are given. This is also part of the Under the Mistletoe Anthology.
I love, love, love this author and once again, Jenna Brandt does not disappoint. This is another one of her works that is almost impossible to put down. Jenna Brandt's novella, The Christmas Bride is a short story that is a spin-off from Ms. Brandt's Window to the Heart Saga series. Many of the series characters are a part of tis story that depicts the power of true love. When we first meet one of the main characters in this story in previous books, Lucy was a waitress at the Trail End Saloon. In this novella, Lucy is now the new owner of the Saloon. The reader witnesses her growing relationship with a pastor's son. Unfortunately, the relationship falters a bit because of a sorid past. Love and growing faith in God overcomes not only this but a ton of gossip, and speculation. It is a story about mending and building relationships. This is one Christmas story you do not want to miss. I wish I could give it more then 5 stars.
