Book Review:
Mail Order Doctor by Cynthia Woolf is the story of Julia who travels to Tombstone as a mail order bride thinking herself in love with Dr. Matthew Reynolds and vice versa but is shocked to find that Matthew doesn't even know of her existence!

What will happen to Julia?
Will she get her happily-ever-after?

This is the second book in the Brides of Tombstone series but can be read as a standalone without any issues as experienced by me. I hadn't read the first book but dot easily engrossed in this one.

The blurb and title are intriguing and captured my attention right from the start. 

The story is straightforward but the author manages to throw some well calculated surprises and had me engaged throughout. The characterization is realistic and I loved Julia's strength, determination and grit but was a bit let down by Matthew. While his objections are understandable but after a while he started looking childish and stubborn not at all like the responsible and mature man he had started as.

I enjoyed meeting Matthew's family and am eager to read their stories. Also I liked Ben and hope to read his love story soon.

The world building is vivid and had me easily transported to the harsh and hard settings of the America of 1800s with mining towns, horse carriages, gown clad women and struggle filled living. 

Cynthia's writing style is fluid and engaging and I enjoyed her narration. Hope to read more from her in the future.

All in all,  Mail Order Doctor is a clean romance with a strong heroine who wins over all her difficulties to get her happily-ever-after. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to all lovers of western romance. 



I received the book from the publishers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
