Colleen Coble’s Bluebonnet Bride novella is a great little read very true to her style of writing only in a small package. Although this is a novella and not a full novel I found the story satisfying and not rushed. The novella is set in Austin, Texas in the early 1900’s and is a romantic story about Elli Korpela who is a mail order bride of sorts. She comes to Texas to marry Nathan White but soon finds out he wants someone to help raise his niece. His sister is deceased and agreed to raise Hannah. Elli immediately fell in love with little Hannah but she fears she will put her and Nathan in danger. Her secrets will have to be shared to keep them safe.
If you are looking for a quick summer read and love historical romance once again Colleen Coble doesn’t disappoint. I do wish it had been a full novel because I love everything she writes and love to get lost in her stories. This again is a predictable novella but even being so short she is able to complete the story and give you a great storyline.
I received this book from BookLook.com at no charge for an honest review.
