Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for The Telegraph Proposal by Becca Whitham and Gina Welborn, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Telegraph Proposal
Series: Montana Brides #3
Authors: Becca Whitham & Gina Welborn
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2019
In the rough and rugged Montana Territory, the journey to true love is filled with unexpected twists–and sweet rewards–for daring frontier women who faithfully believe every heart has a home . . .
With the help of the Archer Matrimonial Company, Yancey Palmer has finally put Hale Adams, the man she’s loved for ten years–sometimes not wisely or well–behind her. Yancey is so sure of her love for the man the agency matched her with, she readily promises a friend that she’ll help Hale with his mayoral campaign without chasing him.
Hale has also engaged the services of the matrimonial agency. He’s so pleased with one lady, he requests that she join him in Helena to commence a sixty-day courtship. But instead, the Archer ladies arrive in town to reveal the true identities of both Hale’s and Yancey’s matches: each other. Can they look past their misunderstandings and hurt to see that they are still a perfect match?
IN MY OPINION
If you’ve read the previous two books in the Montana Brides series, The Telegraph Proposal gives you an opportunity to catch up with some familiar fictional friends. But don’t concern yourself if you haven’t, once you get to know some of the Helena, Montana characters, you’ll feel like a part of this group of people too.
Yancey and Hale both carry misconceptions about each other. Yancey has put Hale on a pedestal for years. Hale has seen Yancey as annoying and selfish, avoiding her whenever possible. What neither of them has taken into consideration is that the other is human. Hale has made mistakes. Yancey has grown up. And when they correspond without realizing the truth of who they are writing to, some of those things come to light.
There are some difficult, tragic moments in The Telegraph Proposal. There are also some silly, humorous scenes. There are growing pains for Yancey and Hale. And I appreciated how Gina Welborn and Becca Whitham didn’t avoid any of it because the and the bad, the forward progress and the steps back, the friendships and family all work together to shape these two characters.
