The Telegraph ProposalTitle: The Telegraph Proposal
Series: Montana Brides #3
Authors: Becca Whitham & Gina Welborn
Publisher: Zebra
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2019

In the rough and rugged Montana Territory, the journey to true love is filled with unexpected twists–and sweet rewards–for daring frontier women who faithfully believe every heart has a home . . .

With the help of the Archer Matrimonial Company, Yancey Palmer has finally put Hale Adams, the man she’s loved for ten years–sometimes not wisely or well–behind her. Yancey is so sure of her love for the man the agency matched her with, she readily promises a friend that she’ll help Hale with his mayoral campaign without chasing him.

Hale has also engaged the services of the matrimonial agency. He’s so pleased with one lady, he requests that she join him in Helena to commence a sixty-day courtship. But instead, the Archer ladies arrive in town to reveal the true identities of both Hale’s and Yancey’s matches: each other. Can they look past their misunderstandings and hurt to see that they are still a perfect match?

While I find mail-order bride stories intriguing, I also admit that I tend to be very picky about them because it’s difficult to make the romance believable. The added twist to the premise of this novel had me instantly intrigued because it would eliminate at least part of what typically stunts the realism for me. I felt the romance thread was well-played and the conflict was thoroughly amusing. I admit to having a bit of difficulty keeping all of the characters straight in the beginning, but I know that at least part of that was because several of them existed in other books of the series. As the story progressed the character confusion smoothed itself out though and I was able to get into the story more.

Overall I found this to be an enjoyable read and one that was easily able to hold my attention. I recommend to fans of historical fiction and mail-order brides.

  2. Sounds like a fun book. I agree though, it’s sometimes hard to believe the love factor in a mail-order bride novel. This one sounds like that’s not an issue at all. Great review, Becca!

  3. I wouldn’t say I”m a fan of mail-order brides books, but not really opposed to them either. I guess the thing I care about is the quality of the plot.

    I don’t often read historical fiction but I do love mail order bride stories so maybe I’ll check this one out!
