A Bride For All Seasons by Margaret Brownley, Debra Clopton, Mary Connealy, & Robin Lee Hatcher

About the Book
It All Started with an Ad in a Mail Order Bride Catalogue . . .
Melvin Hitchcock of the Hitching Post Mail Order Bride Catalog isn't dishonest---not exactly. If he tweaks his clients' applications a bit, it's because he's looking out for their best interests.
This charming bouquet of novellas introduces four Hitching Post prospects in the year 1870, each one eager for second chances . . . and hungry for happiness. Year in, year out, they'll learn that love often comes in unexpected packages.
And Then Came Spring by Margaret Brownley
Mary-Jo has been unlucky all her life. But who would guess she'd travel halfway across the country to meet her match . . . only to find him dead!
An Ever-After Summer by Debra Clopton
Ellie had no idea she's not what Matthew ordered. And what's wrong with being a "Bible thumper" anyway? She's determined to show him she's tougher than she looks---and just the girl he needs.
Autumn's Angel by Robin Lee Hatcher
Luvena would be perfect for Clay if she didn't come with kids. But kids are a deal breaker, especially in a rough-and-trouble mining town. The trouble is, there's no money to send them back. . .
Winter Wedding Bells by Mary Connealy
David's convinced he's not long for the world. He needs someone to mother his boys when he's gone---nothing more. Can plucky Irish Megan convince him to work at living instead of dying?

My Thoughts
This was such a fun novella collection! I loved the premise of the book and I really like the four authors so I was super excited for the chance to review it! I couldn't believe the things the man moderating the letters edited from each couple's letters but in the end it worked out and was actually kinda amusing!
And Then Came Spring
This novella was really cute, the characters were fun, and there were quite a few amusing scenes. I really liked how the whole story played out.
An Ever After SummerThough the romance was a bit rushed in this one I still enjoyed it a lot. Ellie was awesome and despite Matthew's protests was perfect for him and Sophie. Prudy the mule was also quite hysterical and a great addition to the story.
Autumn's Angel
This was my least favorite of the four novellas due to the fact that it was really rushed but I still liked it. I loved how even though Clay didn't want kids he was really great with Luvena's nephew and nieces.
Winter Wedding Bells
This was my absolute favorite! Which really was no surprise since I love Mary Connealy's books so much. Megan was so much fun! I loved how she refused to believe David was dying and forced him to try to get better! There were many other things I loved but I don't want to spoil them!
