for himJulia Lockwood has never b A beautiful marriage of convenience story Completely heart warming and romanticI had been meaning to read this book ever since loving the short story Love by the Letter by the same author and was sure that it would probably not disappoint I was so right I was swept in from the very beginning as we meet the hero Everett Cline and learn that he's had FOUR disappointments IN A ROW with women The first girl he wanted to marry jilted him for another and of the three subseuent mail order brides that came on the train for him two chose to marry another man and one arrived already dead Poor Everett He's so cute you just want to hug him from the first scene and assure him that everything will be alright He claims to be sort of okay ish with not having a wife but it's complete balderdash He needs one pretty badly even if just as a helpmate to work his farmwhich might just be what he'll get after allMiss Julia Lockwood a beautiful runaway from Boston sees marriage to Everett as both her doom and her salvation It's her one chance to get away from her life in Boston and all its problems but she really isn't sure if she can really go through with actually getting married No scratch that she IS sure she DOESN'T want to get married but under the circumstances she doesn't have much of a choice And she's sure of something else too IF she really does get married it will certainly be a marriage IN NAME only So reluctantly Julia gets off the train in Kansas to meet Everett for the first time She doesn't know much about him save the few good lines her pen friend Rachel has dropped about him Rachel Everett's best friend Dex's wife has decided that he should be allowed at least another chance at happiness with a woman and is sure Julia will be the right one for him She has no idea that Julia hides deep scars and is monstrously afraid of marriage and she doesn't tell Julia that Everett has tried about four times to get married and failed Everett sees her get off the train and cannot believe she can be the woman Rachel has secretly arranged for him to marry A gorgeous damsel fit for royal salons and expensive silk gowns Here in the middle of nowhere on the Kansas prairie Noooo waaayyy Everett is torn between being completely elated and completely on his guard If plain women didn't want him and jilted him for better men why would that stunning porcelain doll choose him He vows to keep his feelings in check sure that she will bolt off like all the other ones did And poor Julia is in for uite a shock when she sees Everett for the first timeOf course he's tall ruggedly handsome and swoon worthily built buuuuthe looks just like her ex fiancéSo now we have the guy who is angry about having a fourth mail order bride thrust at him but happy because she's beautiful but scared that she's going to leave him too the girl who's had a misadventure with another man and cannot possibly trust another one so soon but who needs to get married ASAP LOTS of confusion but a darn good recipe for a really good romanceEverett is both incredibly attracted and scared of Julia so he keeps his distances which make Julia thinks that he might not want to get married after all and since she's indecisive about it herself he thinks she's going to leave which makes her think that maybe he thinks she wouldn't be capable of working a farm but he really thinks that she thinks his farm sucks when in reality she just doesn't know much about farming so she tries to learn as much as she can and does so much work that he thinks she wants to be alone so he doesn't talk to her which makes her think that he doesn't want her so she goes to the store without telling him he freaks out because he thinks she's leaving she has absolutely NO intention of leaving and wants to be his friend he wants to be MORE than her friend so he decides to talk to her but she finds all his uestions annoying so she keeps her distances which make him think that she wants to be alone so he lets her be which makes her think that he's disappointed in her andTHEY KEEP ROLLING IN THE SAME VICIOUS CIRCLE FOR PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE BOOOOOOKKKKKK I'll admit it sometimes I was pretty baffled by the way they acted Some of their actions seemed very contradictory and Julia was especially hard to follow with her I want to be his friend but I don't want him near me attitude Like make up your mind girlI really admired her strength of character and how she never complained about how hard life was on the prairie although it seemed a tad unrealistic given that she came from an easy city life in Boston and should have found a little depressing on the prairie but her deep fear of being touched by Everett and not letting him in started to grate on my nerves because Everett was such a dreamy hero and was SO kind to her that she should have at least APPRECIATED is efforts to get to know her instead of rebuking him at every turn AND she didn't like reading and needlework which gave me such a shock I nearly fell off my chair But for all that it was an absolutely wonderful story to follow and the romantic bits were really realllllyyyy good and Everett completely made my heart melt HOWEVER I cannot help gagging whenever I think back on this novel because the heroine at some point falls off a roof and breaks her leg AND IT SAYS SPECIFICALLY MANY TIMES THAT THE BONE SHOWS THE BONE THE BOOOOONE It made me shudder so much and my own legs started hurting I just couldn't get past it Ughh
