Verity's Overlander

(Book 15 in the Brides of Pelican Rapids series)
A novel by

Poor Mrs. Ella Milton! The matchmaker bends her rules and interviews this bride and groom by letter. No matter the disaster that follows, she still feels the Lord’s blessing in the mess.
Verity Vaksdal wants adventure, just like her Viking ancestors. After reading dime novels, she knows that adventure will only come her way if she finds a dark and handsome hero.
Mrs. Ella Milton helps her find that hero, arranging for her to be a mail-order bride. To make her plan happen, Verity neglects telling Mrs. Milton her real age. At fifteen, Verity sneaks away from home and leaves a panicked older sister behind her. This sets in motion a series of events that will bring her sister, Veronica, to St. Louis. She’s the one who meets the dark, handsome hero. Not that she’s happy to see him.
Robbie MacTavish never thought to write away for a wife. After his wife’s death years earlier, he decided never to remarry. His aunt has other ideas and writes to a “friend of a friend”, Mrs. Ella Milton. When the bride fails to show, he is more relieved than disappointed. He needs to focus his attention on leading his family’s group of wagons to Wyoming.
When Veronica, his bride’s much older sister, appears and not Verity, Robbie suddenly grows much more interested in marrying. Will he be able to convince this woman that he needs only her as his wife while they race against time to find Verity?
