Sophia's Leap-Year Courtship
(Timeless Romance Single)
by Kristin Holt
Adult Historical Romance, Novella
ebook, 100 Pages
February 24th 2017 by Mirror Press


Union Pacific Station Agent Chadwick Hughes has everything in a state of readiness to welcome his mail order bride…everything but the bride. The woman he’s corresponded with for a year didn’t change her mind or miss her train in Omaha—she never existed. Chadwick’s mortified to discover he’s been swindled by a fraudulent matrimonial agency in Chicago. He needs a lawyer if he’ll ever recover a dime of the fortune he spent on worthless membership fees and the nonexistent bride’s transportation west.

Sophia Sorensen, Attorney at Law, is a spinster on the edge of propriety. The good people of Wyoming Territory are open to a lot of things, including Lady’s Privilege during Leap Years, but some aren’t fond of her day-to-day behavior. Why, the woman rides her bicycle hither and yon, showing her petticoat ruffle and ankles. She might be the least ladylike specimen beneath Wyoming skies, but it’s entertaining to watch her court the U.P. Station Agent, Chadwick Hughes, the most-eligible bachelor in the county.

My Review

SOPHIA'S LEAP-YEAR COURTSHIP was a cute read about one unconventional (for her time) heroine and a man who doesn't know his own worth. The humor, friendships, and heartfelt story was enjoyable and sweet

I loved how these two characters were looking for love, but from the wrong places (in this case an agency), and that through one bad situation they found an opportunity for happiness in each other. The characters were both quite likable. I understood Sophia's misgivings with the relationship and her own charms, but I didn't quite understand Chad's. I enjoyed their romance and sparking (had to use that old-fashioned term). I also loved their doctor friends. Parts dragged a little and were slightly more dramatic than I was expecting, but still a very sweet story.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I wanted a little more development from this, but I still enjoyed the story and characters.
