Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss
Genre: Christian Romance

Publisher: Summerside Press
Pages: 348
Rating 5/5

Tricia Goyer is the author of several books, including Night Song and Dawn of a Thousand Nights, both past winners of the ACFW's Book of the Year Award for Long Historical Romance. Goyer lives with her family in Montana.
Ocieanna Fleiss is a published writer and has edited six of Tricia Goyer's historical novels. She lives with her husband and their four children in the Seattle area.
Julia is supposed to travel West to deliver children safely to adopting families along the orphan trail and then the plan was for her to turn around and come back home to New York but as plans usually dont go quite as expected neither did this one!
She finds she has been sold as a mail order bride and her return home ticket is invalid. Now distraut with no friends, money, or place to go she turns to the local pastor Issac for help and guidance. His family takes her in until all can get sorted out and they try to hook up the pastor with Ms Julia but the pastor has vowed to the Lord to never wed because he is on the road so much and doesn't want to leave a wife home alone on the prairie.
I was really pleased with the feel and atmosphere of Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie Montana. The writing was so smooth and flowing it was like I was really there out in the west with Julia.  So many times I found myself laughing out loud over a few predicaments she got into especially when she was learning to milk the cow and the milk shot into the cats eye!
This was a fun light romance and I truly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anybody looking for a soft and fun loving western romance.  I also adored how each page was stamped at the top with a little postage stamp!  That was so neat!
