Review – Hot-Tempered Hannah

Grafford, Jo. Hot-Tempered Hannah. JG Press, 2018

Summary from the author’s website

Gabe Donovan, notorious bounty hunter, is busy trying to outride an Arizona-sized hole in his heart, when the director of the Gallant Rescue Society offers him the chance to redeem his tortured soul by tracking a missing mail order bride. He can hardly believe the ghost who’s been haunting his memories is a dead ringer for the missing bride in the photograph.

​Either the woman he’s never stopped loving has a twin, or she did a bloody good job of faking her own death and crushing his hopes of any kind of future together. There’s only one way to find out — track down the hot-tempered beauty and haul her back to Headstone for questioning!

My Review

I had previously read other title’s in the Mail Order Brides Rescue series. It was fun to go back to book one, which I had not previously read, and learn about the start of this Mail Order Bride company. 

In Hot-Tempered Hannah the reader gets some mystery, some romance, and the opportunity to learn a little about the mines of the Old West. Jo Grafford opens the book with the owner of the Mail Order Bride company playing cards while looking for help to rescue a missing bride and a bounty hunter miserable about losing his partner and love of his life. Her plot is written in such a way to draw the reader in and at times in the plot it is hard to put the book down.. 

The books in the Mail Order Brides Rescue series can be read as stand alones, although there is some character overlap. If you enjoy historical romance and the mail order bride concept, this is a series you won’t want to miss. 

Hot-Tempered Hannah is an adult sweet romance story. There is one scene with a description of the wedding night. It is clean but it does contain enough passion that I would not be comfortable with placing the book in a k-12 Christian school library. It would be okay in the adult fiction section of a church library.I received a complimentary copy of Hot-Tempered Hannah. This is my honest review.
