Wylder Bride by Amey Zeigler


Maisie Brinley has rejected every bachelor among Boston’s elite. At the old age of twenty-six, as her social climber of a mother insists, she has few choices left. When Maisie begins corresponding with a stranger who lives in the Wyoming Territory, she finds a soulmate, someone whose words connect with her heart. Mustering courage she crosses the continent to meet him face to face. But will he live up to her expectations?

Living in Wylder, Wyoming Territory—where men outnumber women ten to one—gunsmith Cyrus Haddock hides his disfigured face to avoid romantic rejection. Out of pity, he helps a friend woo a woman through letters. But the scheme backfires when he falls in love with the woman’s words. When they meet, how can he hide his feelings—or confess his love for Maisie when the one thing she demands is truth and honesty?

 Our Review: For a delightful and touching takeoff on Cyrano deBergerac, Wylder Bride is an unforgettable story with well-drawn, unforgettable characters. This is a book to spend an afternoon with, whether in front of a roaring fire—or at the beach, listening to soul soothing ocean waves. It is a love story that will stay with you for a very long time. 

 On a scale of 1-5, Wylder Bride deserves a 6.

Divine Vintage by Sandra L. Young


Tess Burton risked her inheritance to open Divine Vintage, a clothing boutique featuring clothes and accessories from the past. While modeling an elegant gown from a turn of the century trousseau, her mind is opened to a century-old murder. Visions—seen through the eyes of the murdered bride—disputes local lore that claims the bridegroom committed the crime.

Trey Dunmore doesn’t share Tess’ enthusiasm for mind-blowing visions, yet the appeal to clear his family’s tainted legacy compel him to join her in exploring the past. Aided by the dead woman’s clothing and diary, Tess and Trye discover that pursuing love in 1913 was just as thorny as modern day.

About the Book: This is an effortless weave between the past and the present with vintage clothing being the key to the characters’ frightening visions. Ambitious store owner Tess is consumed with making her shop a success and has little time or interest in romance. Burned once, she has no desire to repeat that experience, thank you very much. Architect, Trey Dunmore, also has little time or interest in romance but each time he’s with the lovely Tess, the lure of his family’s past, along with a beautiful woman who believes in learning the truth, is irresistible.

Our Review: Author Young skillfully intertwines past with present, using her knowledge and experience with vintage clothing as well as the plight of the homeless into this excellent first novel. Her use of the characters’ visions, bringing the reader into the past feels effortless. Plus, she skillfully brought a bit of mystery into the mix, making the reader wonder just who from then is the who from now.

Based on a scale of 1-5, Divine Vintage deserves a 6.
