Take a venture to unchartered territory! Visit the northernmost US state without ever leaving home. "Alaska Brides" is there for you to experience Alaska in its earlier days. You will travel along with Merry, Fiona and Amy. Could their very presence in this cold state warm the hearts of Alaskan men who don't even realize that they need ladies who are strong enough to inhabit this cold area? Perhaps the coldest thing that these ladies will experience is the coldness of the unsuspecting neighbor, grieving widower and gold miner who is trying to remain as secretive as he possibly can.
The three authors of these novellas have written some outstanding books. So combining their talents into one volume is a treat for romance readers who enjoy their individual work. "Alaska Brides" will warm you from head to toe. Throughout their stories, you will see that God has been leading each lady to where He needs them to be for His good purpose.
"Alaska Brides" by Cathy Marie Hake, Mary Connealy, and Kathleen Y'Barbo will have you wanting to snuggle up on these cold winter nights and be rooting for the leading ladies all the way!
"Long, Slow, and Depressing" Aug 31, 2008
I long to go to Alaska. I thought a book about romance and Alaska would be a thrill to read. I could not have been more wrong.
The characters of the first book were boring. I never did connect to them. Reading this story was work--not pleasure. The second book was okay. I would not recommend it, but it was the shining star of these three. I admired Amy's will.
The third book seemed to be a great book about a strong woman. Wrong again. Fiona was just stupid. Her family was as dysfunctional as a family could be. There is no happiness in this story.
I just cannot recommend this. Read Kentucky Brides or Mississippi Weddings. They are much more enjoyable.
Hated the Third Story!!! Aug 1, 2008
This is my first review to write. I'm doing so because I just finished Alaska Brides and I'm depressed. The first two stories are great. I'm a big fan of Cathy Marie Hake(Chance Books I love) and I loved Mary Connealy's Petticoat Ranch. Mary writes about strong women who can take care of themselves. My problem with Y'Barbo's story is even tho you get your happy ending you are to sad by then. *Spoiler Alert*----From Chapter 10 when the sad thing occurs till Chapter 18 you feel nothing but sadness. I could have dealt with the bad thing if only it hadn't been drawn out for 18 years. I mean she even wasted three simply not reading his letters. I'm sorry but with family like Merry who needs enemies. The minute he was free I would have been telling Fiona the news. Back then that was a lifetime. I just hate the last story was the worst. Instead of the feel good I normally get I just cried and thought what a waste of years. Lest you think I'm a looney I just get into the charaters I read and I hate to end a book crying. If you're looking for the kind of book that doesn't follow the norm then read Golden Twilight. If you want good to prevail over evil then only read the first two in the book.
