Bluebonnet Bride was a delightfully fast paced read that I fairly devoured in one gulp!
This book has it all, action, suspense, mystery & drama. I got to know the characters quickly, and their interaction with each other moves their relationship along. There were good logical reasons for the choices that they made, which made their story very believable.
Nathan White is a good hardworking man who needs someone to help him take care of his niece. If you've read The Butterfly Palace then you will probably remember Jane's daughter, Hannah, who is now four. Nathan has decided that a mail-order bride is the best way to go to get the help he needs.
Ellie has lost everything and needs to get out of Finland, so she boards a ship full of brides and makes her way to Texas. She immediately connects with Hannah, but will Nathan ever see her as more than a nanny for his niece?
There is a lot going on in this rather short story, and I loved every minute of it. One of my favorite things about this book was how Nathan asked if her could court her, even though they were already married.
While this is a companion novella to The Butterfly Palace you don't need to have read it to enjoy this wonderful story, though why would you want to even consider missing The Butterfly Palace? It was fantastic!
Overall, this was a wonderful story from beginning to end, with stirring characters, and great dialogue. I would highly recommend this novella!
