Review: Almost a Bride by Jody Hedlund

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Always close, but never a bride.

Longing to find true love, Kate Millington arrives in British Columbia on a bride ship. With countless men waiting to snag a bride, Kate has no trouble getting engaged. It’s staying engaged that’s the problem. After traveling to the remote mining town of Williamsville to marry her newest fiancĂ©, she finds herself single again.

As the prosperous owner of a gold mine, Zeke Hart has everything he’s ever wanted except for a wife. At Kate’s arrival, he takes it upon himself to protect his childhood friend from the men clamoring to court her. The more he renews her friendship, the more he wants to win her for himself. But as much as Kate admires Zeke, she’s resolved not to marry someone who doesn’t share her faith.

When Zeke begins receiving anonymous threats, he unwittingly puts them both in grave danger. In the midst of peril, the past rises up to haunt them both, and Zeke realizes the fight for Kate’s affection may be his biggest challenge yet.

My Review

I've loved the Bride Ships series! Each woman has come from a different background and faces a variety of challenges. Kate thinks she is eager to get married, but at the last minute, fear grips her and she breaks things off. She has a connection to Zeke through characters from the previous books, and he takes on the role of her protector when she moves to his remote town. She has a bit of a naive stubborn streak though, and they butt heads several times even while developing and deepening their friendship. Zeke's strong physical attraction to Kate battles with their unmatched spiritual goals, and they struggle to share a visualization for their future. The unrest in the town with vandalism and danger brings an added element of tension and suspense, and the theme of giving our fears over to the Lord is one that both Kate and Zeke explore with their own inner turmoil. A strong conclusion to a compelling series!
