Book Review ~ The Airman’s Email Order Bride by Cora Seton

As promised, my start to book reviews…

The Airman’s Email Order Bride (Heroes of Chance Creek #5) by Cora Seton



Tormented by the knowledge that his father died thinking the worst of him, Colt Hall never meant to come home to Chance Creek. But with his brothers banding together to rebuild the family’s old ranch, he’s finding it hard to stay away. In accordance with the conditions for them to inherit the spread, Colt must soon marry. Too bad the only woman he wants is Heather Ward, the girl he walked away from years ago without saying good-bye.

Heather hid a secret for twelve long years, but when the Halls moved back to town it was only a matter of time before the truth came out. Now everyone but Colt knows he has a son. She’ll get one chance to convince Colt to forgive her—and become the father Richard has always longed for. If she answers Colt’s online ad for a temporary wife, will he fall in love with her before he learns the truth?

Colt knows it’s crazy to try to find a wife through an internet ad, and it’s even crazier to fall for a stranger who wants far more than a temporary marriage, but Helena Warner reminds him so much of Heather, he begins to wonder if the two might be the same woman. Heather can’t believe she’s using a fake name to seduce the father of her own child, but is it possible Colt might know more about her true identity than he’s letting on?

Once all the lies and secrets are stripped bare, Colt and Heather must answer the ultimate question: can a love interrupted ever be renewed?

My Rating:



The premise for the “Heroes of Chance Creek” series is fun – as declared by the brother’s controlling Aunt Heloise, the four brothers must all get married within one year, and there must be an heir born to one of them, otherwise they will loose the ranch that they were born and raised on.

Like all of the other books in the Heroes of Chance Creek series, it was amazing! Once I started this book I didn’t want to put it down and ended up reading it the same day I received it. I was frustrated for a period through the middle of the book, but it was amazing through and through! This story makes you pull for the characters and root for them to make it to their happily ever after. Like all of Cora Seton’s books the characters are well developed and the imagery that runs through the books makes you want to jump a plane and make way for Montana. Luckily for me, I live in Montana and I can attest that everything is right on! Great job on another wonderful additional to this series and I can’t wait to take another visit back to Chance Creek!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
