About the Book:
As Christmas approaches, widowed Reverend Caleb Brennan needs a wife, or his vengeful father-in-law will take his young daughters. When his mail-order bride jilts him, Caleb grows desperate. During a storm, he finds an unconscious boy outside his home with signs of foul play. Despite his previous misfortune, obligation compels Caleb to lug the stranger inside. But as he provides first aid, he discovers more than he expected. Bounty hunter Grace Blackwell refuses to owe a debt to any man, especially one as charming as Reverend Brennan. To repay him for saving her life, Grace agrees to pose as his mail-order bride. If their ploy is discovered, Caleb could lose his daughters. But in their pretense, the reverend and the bounty hunter might just both lose their hearts.
A Match of Sorts is the latest Christmas novella from Lucette Nel. If you’re looking for something different that takes place in the historical western timeline, then you’ll want to check this one out.
This is a story that will quickly draw the reader in and is impossible to put down. I literally read this in one sitting. It’s super cute. Caleb is the kind of preacher and gentleman that I’d marry. Seriously, he’s swoon-worthy material.
I also enjoyed that Grace is a bounty hunter. That isn’t something you typically see in Christian fiction, especially as a female. I loved watching the author explore that role and would love to see more! Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a marriage of convenience story?
It’s the perfect story for this Christmas season.
