Thanks for your review Vickie!
After being labeled as a tease by her father, and being told to find a husband within 30 days, or lose her inheritance, Abby Hollister sets out to comply.
I enjoyed Abby’s pluckiness in setting out to find a husband. Her experiences on the stagecoach leave you feeling as if you were there with her, feeling cramped, gawked at and made uncomfortable. Also, the dangers of stagecoach rides are aptly illustrated in the portrayal of bad guys, rough terrain and consequences from harsh elements.
Anne Greene is a new author to me and this is the first of her stories I have read. Overall, I enjoyed the story and its uniqueness. However, there were a couple of incidents where Abby’s reference to another character’s personal attributes that possibly could not be helped and a couple of items on her list, were not kind. (I feel it gave me a small insight into the author’s thoughts on other people.)
Spur of the Moment Bride by Anne Greene is a short story, quick and easy to read.

“With God’s help, perhaps getting married wouldn’t prove too awful.”
Spur of the Moment Bride is a novella written by Anne Greene. This story takes place in Wyoming in 1880. Abby Hollister has earned the reputation of being a heart breaker. Her father has now told her she must marry within a month or move out and and kiss her inheritance goodbye. She saw an add for a mail order bride and has decided to take the stage coach to Laramie to check out the man before she decides if she will marry him. She has a list of qualities she is wanting, the man must be poor, had to be ugly, had to be kind and older than her.
Stage coach driver Zach Tyler takes his job very seriously and feel he is responsible for his passengers until he gets them to their destination. He feel especially protective of Abby as she is the only woman passenger in an area where women are as scarce as a bird’s nest in a cockcoo clock. When the stage gets to Laramie, the men go crazy and start fighting over who will get Abby. Zach steps in and tries to help her but gets called on a duel instead. Zach is to face the fastest draw in the area, unless Abby is married before then. And even then Abby is not safe until she is with child.
This is a great funny little story, perfect for reading in one sitting. I really enjoyed the humor in the author’s writing. The story is written so well, it was easy to imagine the dust in the stage coach and the frustration Abby must have felt with the men traveling with her. This book would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys American historical fiction.

Stagecoach ride to the wild, untamed town of Laramie, Wyoming! I really liked this fun, fast moving story of a mail order bride who had no idea just what she was getting into. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by this author.

Spur of the Moment Bride by Anne Greene is an entertaining and satisfying western romance. The author writes easy-to-read romances that are based on Christian principles and scripture. Heiress Abby Hollister’s father gives her an ultimatum: within one month she must marry or lose her fortune. He has tired of her constant flitting from party to party and from one interested young man to another. He sets the conditions, and she rises to the challenge. She chooses to answer an ad for a mail-order bride in wild Laramie, Wyoming. Thus, begins her quest for a suitable husband. She has no idea what her stage coach journey will entail nor how her destiny awaits in Laramie. I recommend this book that I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review. Anne Greene’s books are very worthwhile stories that will not disappoint. (reviews posted on Amazon and Good Reads; not found on Christian books, Deeper Shopping, Barnes & Noble, and Books-a-Million, although other titles by this author were on some)
A short novella, this can easily be read in an afternoon. The compelling story held my interest as an unconventional mail-order bride ventures alone into male-dominated, wild Laramie, Wyoming, in 1880. Abby Hollister gets more than she bargained for in adventure, danger, and a future husband. Can she fend off unwelcome advances to find the man of her dreams? I enjoyed the story but felt like the ending tried to tie up everything too abruptly. I received a copy from Book Fun. All opinions are my own.
