**4 stars**

To Love a Stranger by Colleen Coble was such a lovely, little book! Though I hadn't read by the author in a long time, as soon as I saw the gorgeous cover, I knew I had to request it to read&review! And I'm quite happy I did! ^_^

To Love a Stranger is a mail-ordered bride story; and originally came out in 2000 as the fourth book of Colleen Coble's WYOMING series. Now it's been republished in 2016 with it's absolutely stunning new cover! Jasper Mendenhall and Bessie Randall's unlikely romance is a sweet one. Journey to Arizona Territory with these two for a heartfelt adventure.

I just loved it. It's an endearing western/prairie, Christian romance, reminding me something of Janette Oke's stories. Marriage of convenience. Frontier. Native Americans. Babies. Working through the rough spots of life ... basking in the joys. This book was simple and sweet. Short and exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I recommend To Love a Stranger to fans of Christian Historical Romance ... and also fans of western/frontier romance. It's heart-tugging and ultimately very satisfying. Great book from Colleen Coble!

I received a copy of To Love a Stranger from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
