The book I’m featuring today on First Line Friday is Mail-Order Revenge by Angela K. Couch. As much as I enjoy mail-order bride novels, I wasn't drawn to reading this one because a vengeful bride doesn't normally appeal to me. However, I finally decided to give the book a try. The heroine's character was developed well enough so the reader might understand the reason for her anger. I personally could not imagine responding in the same manner if I had been in her shoes. Yet, we are all different, of course, so perhaps someone else might take revenge to the degree the heroine did in the story. The writing was good. The hero swoon worthy.
New York, 1882
