She secretly takes the train to Cedar Ridge and meets Jake Shelling who shows up with the the preacher by his side and marries her right there at the depot.

    2. Buying a train ticket, 1887*.Photo Credit: sochicfrench Box entitled “Paris, gare Saint Lazare in 1887.”★★★½☆ I really liked this one. Of course, I love mail-order brides, mix-up marriages, westerns, and fish-out-of-water stories. I debated giving it three stars, but kicked it up a half star because it held my attention and kept me reading when I should have gone to sleep. Yes, there were some plot points with which I had trouble (one of which was believing someone as well educated [...]


    3. I liked the premise of the story and felt it started off well enough, but I wasn't feeling it for most of the novel. I liked that the first couple of chapters concentrated on the main characters before they meet one another. I liked seeing glimpses of their lives before the inevitable marriage. I thought most of the book would go a lot slower because of how the first couple of chapters were paced. However, Jack and Julia go from strangers to married lovers in practically no time at all.Oh, and I [...]


    4. I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a blog tour in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    5. Holly Bush knows how to spin a story. In 1887, Julia Crawford has little prospects for marriage and lives in the shadow of her attractive sisters and domineering mother. Told for years that she is not as pretty or thin as her sisters and having had an indiscretion which the family hid well, she felt she had no choice but to run away and marry a man she had been corresponding with. By mishap, she ends up marrying the wrong man – who actually ends up being the perfect match for her. But Julia ha [...]


    6. I adored this book! It was so well written and I could not put it down! The characters are very well developed and a very nice hero who isn't dark, brooding or unlikeable--Jake was likable from the get go! And Julia? She found strength she didn't know she had. Just a beautiful story with nice plot twists! I do look forward to reading more from Holly! I've not got her on my top 6 most favorite authors list. She's up there with Carmen Caine, Laurin Wittig and Amanda Forester!


    7. This was a wonderful read and Holly Bush just gets better every time I read something by her. Now Julia's older sister is up next, Jolene and hummmt sure how I am going to handle that. Everybody says she gets redeemed, but mangoing to take a lot for me to believe that. But Julia's story was very well done. This would be a great recommend for someone that hasn't read HB's work before and looking for a well done romance without the hard core descriptive love scenes.


    8. A lovely mail-order-bride story, with surprising depth and twists. 4/5 Stars, with the full review to follow shortly.


    9. This is the second book I have read by this great new author. I am wondering when she is going to have another book out. This author has a great talent for creating works that will take readers back in time. The first book I read by this author took me to the mid 1800’s in Ohio. After reading this book the author has taken me back to the mid 1800’s in North Dakota. The plot and characters in this book were well written and developed. I enjoyed the story line and the challenges that the lead [...]


    10. Let me begin this by saying this is the best historical romance I have read in ages! This is the second book I have read by Holly Bush, and she has not disappointed me. She writes in a readable style with well-developed characters, and a great sense of humor!This delightful story is full of strong characters and a few twists and turns. I love the fact that morality is stressed (even though it is not always practiced). I had been warned about the bedroom scenes, but they were absolutely exquisite [...]


    11. This was such an enjoyable read. Julia was a refreshing heroine, not the typical barbie doll woman. Jake was the kindest and most tender-hearted hero, who has a fierce love for all his family. Jake's two sisters were also a nice addition to this book. Ms. Bush weaves a spell-binding tale with sweet love scenes and truly remarkable characters. I rarely give 5 stars, but this book deserved it! I truly enjoyed this story and plan to read other stories by this talented author.


    12. Holly Bush brings you back in time with believable characters, love and romance within an interesting and well developed novel. Holly pens the settings in her novel that so real that you actually feel you have been transported back. Train Station Bride is a beautifully written historical romance. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to more from Holly Bush.


    13. 3.5/5; 4 stars; B+This was a nice old fashioned romance, set in the late 1800s. I like this author's style and her characters.




    14. At twenty-seven Julia Crawford feels like it is long past time to make a life for herself. As the second born child in a wealthy Boston family, she often feels like her mother thinks of her as a failure, and often reminds Julia that she is nothing like her sisters, who are tall and thin whereas Julia is short and plump. Her family takes great stock in marrying someone within their station and have been trying to match Julia with an undesirable man. Unbeknownst to them though Julia has been corre [...]


    15. Julia Crawford is a constant source of embarrassment for her wealthy East Coast family. The plump, twenty something has decided to do everyone a favor, especially herself. After corresponding with a middle-aged man looking for a wife to take care of him and his aging mother in North Dakota, Julia packs her bags and secrets herself away to become the man's wife. Jake Shelling has sacrificed much of his early life to care for his sisters once their parents die of influenza. At sixteen he stepped u [...]

    17. Tired of living in a family where she is looked upon as an embarrassment and unworthy, Julia Crawford corresponds with a man in South Dakota and agrees to be his wife. Jake Shelling has spent much of his life caring for his younger sisters and the family farm after the deaths of his parents. Now that his sisters are grown and married, Jake is ready to build his own family.In an amusing series of events involving not one, but two cases of mistaken identity, Jake and Julia are married. Though the [...]


    18. I really liked this book. I love Mail Order Bride stories and this one had a twist. Julia's family made me want to throat punch some people. I found myself thinking "Bless her heart" a lot. And I really, really liked her character. Jake was such a good guy, although really stubborn.The conflict in the story was sad and kept me guessing throughout the book. *This book has some cussing- nothing major. & several "marriage bed" scenes, but nothing graphic.


    19. started off pretty slow and predictabled then, it just got better and better! great book;) stupid misunderstandings, but I did feel like it moved a bit fastIf you love mail order brides and plain jane stories, this is it!5 stars;)


    20. Wow, amazing story. I finished it in one seating because I just couldn't put it down.I'm so looking forward to the next one.




    21. This was book 1 in the Prairie Romance and it was a wonderful read. Julia and Jake start out in a surprising way and then from there they have many bumps in the road. This story has many surprises and I really loved reading about them! This was a grand slam for Holly Bush!

    23. One of my favorite books of 2011 was A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick (review here). It was the first book that I've ever read that dealt with marriage as a transaction, specifically mail order brides. So, when I first heard about Train Station Bride, I was intrigued to see how Holly Bush would build a story around this concept. Obviously, it's not something that one encounters often, so I was already expecting to really enjoy the story based on how much I liked Mr. Goolrick's work.Train Stati [...]


    24. "What's a Ridiculed Debutante to do in 1887?."OverallPerformanceStoryThe Train Station Bride by Holly Bush is what I consider an escape-read, or what others term a beach-read. It's a fast-paced story that makes it hard to stop listening. As such, the 5+ hours go by rather quick. Whether or not the audio edition compares to the print edition is subjective to whatever voices you hear in your head when you read this charming story. I have not read the print edition, so my honest review is based on [...]


    25. I was gifted this in audio book form in return for a review. Narrated by Meghan Kelly.I wasn't actually expecting much from this book, it sounded like your typical, fluffy, historical romance. And to be honest, it was exactly that in most respects. But it had a bit more depth to it than a lot of the others I've read in the genre. Julias secret wasn't really a secret to me, I'd guessed long before it was revealed and had also guessed how Jake would react to it. But I thought it was nicely handled [...]


    26. I really liked the characters in this book. Julia was what she was supposed to be. She was the brow beaten, plump daughter in a family of beautiful people; and she'd grown up being told exactly what her place in life and the family was. And she believed it, because she'd been told it so many times. The whole family believed it because they'd heard it so many times. When you've heard something often enough from someone you trust, you tend to take it at face value. You accept it as truth. But it w [...]
