    2. The Mail-Order Brides series by Jillian Hart and Janet Tronstad just keeps getting better with each book.

    4. Another amazing book by these two ladies! I'm sad that it's the last one in the series! What will I do next Christmas? I will miss visiting these two towns in Montana! I love the character developments by Janet and Jillian. Even the secondary characters add so much to the stories. The two heroines meet on a train as they are going to Montana to meet the men they are going to marry as mail-order brides. They have no idea what they will discover in these two men. It must have been so difficult to [...]

    12. Two stories in one book christmas Hearts we take another trip to Angel Falls where we run into several old friends from Jillian Hart's Buttons and Bobbins series. Awesome!!Cole has been living with a lot of pain since losing his wife. His daughter is growing up and in need of a mother, so he sends for a mail-order bride.

    13. This is the second time I've read a 'collection' by Jillian Hart an Janet Tronstad. As with the first, I appreciated how the authors made mention of each other's main characters in their stories: with the mail order brides meeting on the train to their various locations in Montana. This time, we had the added bit of the train's conductor, Mr. Blake, talking to both Mercy and Maeve, and giving them each a sprig of mistletoe for their first Christmas kisses with their new husbands. Of course, the [...]

    14. Christmas + Mail Order Brides + Adorable Children = Warm fuzziesOh, OK, throw in a couple of guys who aren't sure if they can ever love again. ;)Both stories in this book are enjoyable. I loved how Mercy and Cole took their children's feelings into consideration and didn't get married right away just so Amelia would have a mom and George would have a dad. The whole story was just so very sweet. I love "visiting" Angel Falls, and it was fun to see Molly and Cora and other characters from previous [...]

A change to start over and make it right this time.

    16. Janet Tronstad, shows her charm in her writing again. In her story of a widow left pregnant and with a young daughter, she is poor and unassisted after her wayward husband gets killed. She trusts God for her future instead of caving to fear, even though the rancher she travels to wed seems very unlikely to ever want to be a husband in the truest sense. He want a cook! With Christmas coming soon, the story takes a turn for the sparkle! I enjoyed reading this novella so much! Jill's story was the [...]

    17. Two stories that are just what you think about when you think about Christmas romance. The first one is good and the second one is even better. Curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and your favorite slippers for these.Mercy Jacobs needs a husband to take care of her and be a father to her little boy.

    19. Since I've only read Christmas Hearts that is what I'll be reviewing. I enjoy mail-order bride stories and this was no different in that respect. I've read of many reasons for the "marriages" but I think one of my favorites has to be for the sake of the child/children. It adds a little extra to the story I think. The story was good, characters well developed and I found no problems with editing. I liked so much about the book that it's hard to just write about a couple. I enjoyed the fact that s [...]

    20. This is what I needed today - a really gentle easy to read Christian historical romance. I always hated the idea of mail order brides and I am sure that many of the ladies had unlucky and horrid ends but it is nice to imagine some found a good relationship for themselves and in these cases, for their children and even love. Fun and short and sweet. Not my usual book but a nice sick day relaxing read!

    21. In this most recent Christmas collaboration between Jillian Hart and Janet Tronstad, the two mail-order brides are again connected by their train ride out west. Both stories were very enjoyable and heartwarming. What I love is that although they are both novellas, the characters and plots are well- developed, and leave the reader wanting the stories to continue.I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for this review.

    22. As all of my siblings, and most of my friends know, I am a sap. I love to read simple and quick love stories because they make my heart happy and give me hope. That being said, Jillian Hart is one of my favorite authors and I have to say I was not impressed this time around. The story kind of lacked passion and I just didn't find myself as interested as I normally am.

    23. Not up to Janet Tronstad's normal standards.Jillian Hart's portion of the book was totally dismissal. Not terribly interesting. It also contained some slang that was too modern. Doubtful to have been spoken then. Tronstad's portion was better written but not her best writing.

    24. Rating 3.5All are short stories less than 100 pages each, but each are heartwarming and if this series can’t get you in the holiday mood. With the simplicity of family and Christmas in the 1800’s nothing will.

    25. This book was good it is 2 short stories about mail-order brides and you are not sure if they are going to make it till the end of each story. There is a hint of a story inside a story in the beginning so you will want to remember that one little action. Perfect quick read for the Christmas time.

    26. These stories of two women and their children who travel to Montana to become mail-order brides gives us a look back into a time when moral expectations carried a higher price tag than what the world in general expects today. Reassuring to know they held God's Word in high regard.

    27. I liked the second novella better than the first in this duo. But with most novellas I've read, I feel there there isn't enough length to justify the story. Love comes too quickly and therefore not as plausible.

    28. Bland and predictable. The dialogue was cringe worthy. This should be marketed as a Christian romance novel. There was zero passion between the lead characters.
