Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands Romance Collection - 5 Stars!

What a great collection of stories set in Turtle Springs, Kansas.  After the war, so many of the men were lost and never returned to Turtle Springs, that the businesses are failing, women are on the brink of losing their homes.....  Seven different authors wrote seven stories about a different woman set in this city where the female mayor decides to advertise for mail order husbands!  They are to come to Turtle Springs and spend a few minutes with each woman until each agree to a man/woman and the courting can begin.  Of course they have all sorts of men, some are not there just for the women some are their for their farms, money if they have any, etc.  Each of these women are desperate for the help of a man in their life and choose a man to court them.  I received this book of novellas in kindle format in exchange for an honest review through netgalley.com. I thoroughly enjoyed each of the stories and had fun envisioning each story as it played out.   Each of the stories complemented the others as they often had characters from other stories that were active in the next.  Reading about mail order brides is something I enjoy doing, this was a fun twist and I believe they were well written!

Description as found on Good Reads: Meet seven of Turtle Springs, Kansas, finest women who are determined to revive their small town after the War Between the States took most of its men. . .and didn't return them. The ladies decide to advertise for husbands and devise a plan for weeding out the riff raff. But how can they make the best practical choices when their hearts cry out to be loved?
