A novel by

Welcome to Garden Belles Mail-Order Brides. Established in 1850, during the height of the westward wagon train exodus, and the various land runs. Men, desperate for a partner, a wife, turned to Saint Louis sisters Dahlia and Zinnia Williams (aka the Garden Belles) for assistance.

The sisters, both spinsters, are especially proud of three things in the lives: their garden, filled with every type of imaginable flower; their penchant for finding perfect wives for most suitable husbands; and more importantly, the orphaned niece they raised from a baby.

About Daisy...

After completing her final year of college at Vassar, Daisy Chambers left for England to spend two years traveling around Europe with her maternal grandmother and interning at one of London’s most prestigious libraries.

She’s home now, and eager to begin her chosen career as a librarian. What Daisy doesn’t realize is her well-planned life is about to reach a fork in the road that no one, least of all her, saw coming.

Luke Addison is raising his five-year-old son alone after his wife left him when the boy was barely one. As the only trained veterinarian in Carriage Creek, California, he relies on his housekeeper to keep things running in his absence.

Determined to remarry and provide his son with a mother, and himself with a wife, Luke applies to Garden Belles Mail-Order Brides for a match. Unfortunately, despite months of exchanging letters, his first match changes her mind at the last minute in favor of her career. The experience has soured him on the idea of a new relationship, and when the matching service offers him a replacement bride, he accepts under the condition that it’s a marriage in name only, and that the woman’s sole focus be his son.

Can his substitute bride change his mind? More importantly, can he change hers?
