A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City by Erica Vetsch ~ Review

A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas

My Review: If you like a good western, well then grab your Stetson and run down to the nearest book store and pick up A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, Kansas!

Ms. Vetsch skillfully paints each character in such a way that you can almost see them before your very eyes. Every character was unique and had their own kind of charm. It's not often that I find a book with such good character development of such a vast array of the characters. My favorite character was Miles Carr, I couldn't help but relate to his hesitancy to speak up, and his longing to be a bolder witness for Christ. I think that everyone--if they're being honest--has felt that they should have been a better witness at some time in their life, and I liked how Ms. Vetsch put that part of Miles' character into the story.

The pages turned swiftly, and I couldn't help but be completely transported by Ms. Vetsch's lively writing style, her word choices were spot on, and fit the situations to a "T."

Overall, this book has it all action, adventure, mystery, romance, and great characters. Someone would be hard out not to enjoy this book, I know that I did :) A lot of research was obviously put into this book, with details that bring this book to life. I heartily recommend this book, and look forward to reading more books from this author in the future :D

Final Rating: 5 out of 5

I received this book from the publisher through Netgally in return for an honest review. The copy I received may not have been the final copy of this book, so keep it in mind that changes may have been made to the final edition. Thanks :)


  1. Great review, Faye! This sounds like an enjoyable read - I love the combo of well-written characterization and a Western setting. :)


  2. Thanks, Amber! It most certainly was a wonderful read. I think you'd like it :)

    Merry Christmas :)

  3. I loved reading this book! For a Western romance, I thought it ranked up there with Mary Connealy and Susan Page Davis (think the Ladies Shooting Club books). Can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for her next book! :o)

  4. Christy, so did I! I really enjoyed it, and I totally agree with you about it ranking right up there with all those other great authors. And yes, I will definitely be reading whatever I can get my hands on, from Ms. Vetsch :)

    Have a very Merry Christmas! And thanks for stopping by!


I love to hear from you!
