I rarely talk about my family’s private life on this blog.  After all, it’s about books, book plots, book reviews, and… well, reading.  So, I don’t often speak about my life outside of those books – sometimes, yes, but it’s not often.

Right now, because I’m so proud of the man my son has become – because of all the challenges he has met every single day of his life I’d like you to meet my kid (who will always be my kiddo but is now a fully grown man of his own).

 

 

Gertrude  (Trudie) Miller is well-known for her cooking, working for the diner there in Beckham, Massachusetts. When she spots an old crush eating with his new wife, she realizes that there is no chance she will ever be able to find love there in Beckham, where everyone remembers her as a member of the demon horde. After some serious thought, she goes to her sister Elizabeth and asks to be sent west as a mail-order bride.

Douglas Charleston wants nothing more from life than regular meals. When he writes a letter to a matchmaker in the east, he makes it clear that he’s not worried about looks or age when he gets a wife. He is only concerned about her cooking ability. When he meets his potential bride, he’s startled when she’s young and pretty.

Will the meals he so desperately wants bring this unlikely couple together? Or will they live together with no love?

Mail Order Meals is the 32nd title in the Brides of Beckham series.  A complete list of titles in this series can be found on the Kirsten Osbourne page here at KB.
