Westward Ho!

Love by the Letter

     Melissa Jagears

Dex Stanton has never had much time for book learning. He's been too busy helping to provide for his family. Now that he's heading west, Dex is hoping to start a family of his own. However, his attempt to acquire a mail-order bride fails miserably when the lady writes back ridiculing his terrible spelling. Rachel Oliver may be the last person he wants to know what a dunce he is, but she's also the smartest woman in town--and it's clear he needs her help.

Rachel Oliver has lingered in town for three years secretly mooning over Dex Stanton, but now she's done. If the fool wants to write to a mail-order bride company, so be it. Once she begins giving Dex lessons, however, Rachel realizes she may not be prepared to give up just yet.

As their time together runs short, can two of the most stubborn people in town set aside their pride long enough to find love?

     Love by the Letter was wonderful! I got so caught up in the characters and the story so quickly I'm sure my head spun. Oh! It was just lovely the story is told from both Dex's and Rachel's point of view. I enjoyed that because seeing the same story and experiences from a masculine and feminine point of view gave the story a kind of body. It gave it life without repetition which is not easily done. I have to tell you that is is only a novella. The story ended so quickly that I screamed. This book could easily be turned into a full length story. Mmmm.

Love by the Letter is currently free as an e-book, and can be accessed here:
