"Capital Bride" by Cynthia Wolf Book Review

Read my review below, and be sure to check out more information about the tour and enter the giveaway!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can honestly say this is one of the easiest-to-road historical romances I have read in quite some time.  The language and font make the reading of this book go by very quickly, and the story (though simple) is fantastic.  I struggled to put the book down because I was so enraptured.  I loved Sarah and John, and who can pass up the old romance of a mail order bride?  This is the almost-perfect historical Western romance.

As you can imagine, I do have a few minor critiques.  I will not complain about the bedroom scenes.  Though they are only for adults, I can easily say that I was not offended.  I was quite pleased that they were married!  After all, in so many romances, they don't bother to take that step.  The profanity in the book was so mild that it was almost nonexistent.  I can safely say that the two major issues I often point out with books are truly no problem.

My only complaint has to do with the style of the writing.  I discussed this very issue with my mom, and she helped me understand what I struggled to put my finger on.  This novel is fast-paced, but it is not detailed.  I realize that there is a fine line between too much and not enough detail, but I am one who truly desires to connect with the story and the characters in a book.  To do this, I usually need a little more detail than this book provides.  I often felt that I was reading a newspaper article or journal entry.  And for that very reason, there may be readers who will be clamoring to read this.  And all I can say is that you will not be sorry.  The story is enchanting, and I am so glad that I was privileged to read it.  Highly recommended for an easy evening romantic read!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
