My first venture into Cora Seton's wonderful world of Chance Creek started with The Navy SEAL's E-Mail Order Bride. I had seen her Cowboy's of Chance Creek series and was very tempted by them, but just didn't have the time to devote to a series that was rapidly expanding (7 books and still climbing). So a new series seemed the first introduction to her work.
All it took was that first book and I was hooked. The series is about 4 brothers, each a member of a branch of special forces. In order to get their family's homestead back, they will all need to be married within one year's time. Book 1 was the Navy SEAL, book 2 a Soldier. Surprisingly, this is actually the fourth book in the series, but only the third released so far. The Marine's E-mail Order Bride #3 - will be released in January and eventually followed by the Airman's E-mail Order Bride sometime in March.
I wasn't expecting a Christmas story in the series, but I quite enjoyed it. This was a nice break in the brother's story line, giving us a chance to catch up with how the first two brothers and their wives have been doing and join them for their first Christmas in Crescent Hall. I enjoyed Sarah and Dan's story. This was a tale of what happens when two stubborn strong willed people collide. It makes for some mighty interesting fireworks. This was a fun read and I gave it 3 stars.
