Wedded for the Baby

Wedded for the Baby
Stand-In Brides #2
Dorothy Clark
Katherine is on the way to visit her sister when she helps a sick mother on the train. The mother makes Katherine promise to take care of her son before she passes away. Now Katherine is stuck, on her way to meet the mother's fiance. When Trace, an ex-doctor, asks her to marry him to secure his home and help with the baby, she agrees. But both agree that it's only a marriage of convenience that will only last until Trace can find another wife. Neither of them are willing to share the secrets that are keeping them from their full potential. But maybe the little boy will mend their hearts.

The premise of this book was definitely a twist on the mail-order bride type. I enjoyed the descriptions of the town and the characters. Some of the characters stood out a little more than others for me. While I didn't really connect with either of the two main characters or really feel any of their chemistry, I did enjoy reading the story. The book is listed as Christian fiction, but while there were some references to faith, it wasn't the main focus of the book. The romance of the plot, while not strong, is clean. The book is the second in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

I received this book from NetGalley. All thoughts expressed are my own.
