Book Blog Tour: Twice Promised by Maggie Brendan

Twice Promised is the second edition to The Blue Willow Brides series. Greta Olson and Cory Johnson respond to an advertisement for a mail-order bride. The ad was placed by Jess Gifford’s brother Zach, to give him two women to choose from. Since there are two women and not one, Zach and Jess make a bet on which woman to court; they both end up courting one of the girls. Cora is more quiet and reserved than Greta. Greta likes to talk more than Cora; she has already been hurt once in her life when the only man who she thought could be her match passes away. The story takes a new turn when the man who is interested in Greta finds out who that man was. 

Greta and Cory both seemed to act like themselves during this story, which caused both Jess and Zach to realize what personality they were more attracted to. I really loved Cora’s admission that she would be doing missionary work after she marries; that was something that she wanted to be honest about to find out if the man that was interested in her would allow her be who she is on the inside.  I also liked how people can be educated about attention deficit disorder (ADD) in this story, based on one of the characters having the disorder. This story was a perfect example to me that when we think something is going to turn out one way it may turn out a different way instead.

This is the second book I have read in The Blue Willow Brides series and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. It can also be read as a stand-alone novel.

Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary book from Revell for this review.
