Love by the Letter

Author: Melissa Jagears
Publisher: Bethany House
September 2013
Genre: Historical / novella

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 is a companion Christian romance novella to A Bride for Keeps, Melissa Jagears's full-length debut novel available fall 2013. Includes an extended sneak peek at A Bride for Keeps.

LOVE BY THE LETTER is a totally cute novella. Dex has loved Rachel for a long time, but she is smarter than he is, and would never have him, especially since she has plans to go to college. Rachel has always loved Dex but he is planning on marrying a mail-order bride. Is there any hope they’ll discover the depth of each other’s love before it’s too late?

Great novella. I enjoyed it, and would read more by Ms. Jagears. It was a quick read, read in less than an hour. Recommended. 125 pages. I got it for $0.00
