Christian romance that I got for free from Book Bub Loosely based on true events. I really enjoyed this book It is a story full of anger, hurt, hate, rage, hopelessness, beauty, hope, forgiveness, and love I enjoyed the way the author used mystery, suspense, drama, romance and comedy to tell the story Afterwards reading that some of it was based on a true story made it even better A well written easy read. This started out really good, meaty and full of emotion However the I read the preachy it became Its not that I do not appreciate the message but the way it was presented was overly pushy.DNF hard to put down *READ E-PUB ↞ Rocky Mountain Oasis ⇢ He S Different From Any Man She S Ever KnownHowever, She S Sworn Never To Risk Her Heart AgainBrooke Baker, Sold As A Mail Order Bride, Looks To Her Future With Dread But Firm Resolve If She Survived Uncle Jackson, She Can Survive AnyoneWhen Sky Jordan Hears That His Nefarious Cousin Has Sent For A Mail Order Bride, He Knows He Has To Prevent The Marriage No Woman Deserves To Be Left To That Fate Still, He S As Surprised As Anyone To Find Himself Standing Next To Her Before The MinisterBrooke S New Husband Turns Out To Be Kinder Than Any Man Has Ever Been But Then The Unthinkable Happens And She Holds The Key That Might Save Innocent Lives But Destroy Sky All In One Fell Swoop It S A Choice Too Unbearable To Contemplate But A Choice That Must Be MadeA Thirsty Soul Alluring Hope An Oasis Of LoveStep Into A Day When Outlaws Ran Free, The Land Was Wild, And Guns Blazed At The Drop Of A Hat I really enjoyed this Christian mail order bride story with a mystery I appreciated the character development and the faith element that was integral to the story The heroine s name, Brooke, which didn t become a popular girl s first name until long after the setting of this story, distracted me There were some other elements of the story that didn t seem to fit the time period. Brooke has been sent away as mail order bride by her uncle She has no choice and leaves the abusive life she knows, expecting a life of abuse with another man.Sky s cousin Jason has bought Brooke as mail order bride When Sky learns about this he wants to prevent the woman from a sorrowful life with Jason Jason is a drinker and takes no responsibility for whatsoever Sky comes up with a plan to buy Jason s intented Sight unseen, he marries Brooke as soon as she gets into town.Sky soon learns that Brooke has had a rough life and therefore distrusts men He must learn to win her trust Sky prays that she will get to know the Lord and will find healing of the wounds of her past.Besides a nicely written love story, there s also a murder mystery in this book Lynnette weaves the two stories nicely together The characters are well developed and easily loved The healing process of Brooke is very well done I admired Sky s patience with Brooke and how he trusted the Lord for deliverance Lynnette also puts Scripture to practice in this wonderful novel.I have read this book some time ago and reread it recently to review Normally I don t read books twice, but this book was a pleasure to read again I highly recommend it
