Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Sophia's Leap-Year Courtship by Kristin Holt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Union Pacific Station Agent Chadwick Hughes has everything in a state of readiness to welcome his mail order bride…everything but the bride. The woman he’s corresponded with for a year didn’t change her mind or miss her train in Omaha—she never existed. Chadwick’s mortified to discover he’s been swindled by a fraudulent matrimonial agency in Chicago. He needs a lawyer if he’ll ever recover a dime of the fortune he spent on worthless membership fees and the nonexistent bride’s transportation west.

Sophia Sorensen, Attorney at Law, is a spinster on the edge of propriety. The good people of Wyoming Territory are open to a lot of things, including Lady’s Privilege during Leap Years, but some aren’t fond of her day-to-day behavior. Why, the woman rides her bicycle hither and yon, showing her petticoat ruffle and ankles. She might be the least ladylike specimen beneath Wyoming skies, but it’s entertaining to watch her court the U.P. Station Agent, Chadwick Hughes, the most-eligible bachelor in the county.

This was a delightful novella about a forward thinking, ahead of her time lady lawyer and the most eligible bachelor in the county who hires her.  The sweet romance between these two was heart warming and the reverse courtship (Lady's Privilege during Leap Year) was fun to read about.  Of course they have to overcome some obstacles and in the end will love or money win out?  Another winner in the clean, sweet, Timeless Romance Singles line! :)
