Pony Express Courtship

Pony Express Courtship
Saddles & Spurs Series
Rhonda Gibson
Rebecca and her husband Jon decided to make their farm a Pony Express station and have their boys work as riders. But after Jon's passing, Rebecca realizes that she must continue with the plans if the boys are to have a chance in life. Seth is robbed on the way to find his mail-order bride who never showed up. So he takes a job as the station master at Rebecca's farm to earn more money. The two begin clashing almost immediately over almost everything. Rebecca, an orphan, protects her children, boys she's rescued when the orphanages turned them out at twelve. Seth needs Rebecca to trust him if he's to do his job and make these boys into men fit for the job.

This was a fun book. All of the characters added to the plot and helped round out the simple theme. I liked the drama and tension that a large family always brings when trying to mix in new people. I think the book might be part of a series, but it read like a stand-alone. I can definitely see several of the secondary characters having their own book in the future. Overall, this was a book that I would recommend to anyone wanting a sweet, clean romance about family, trust, and faith.

I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
