Thank you Ms. Nordin for your generous donation.

April Edwards, a young widow, is content to manage a farm with her fourteen-year-old brother and a one-year-old daughter. Nothing, after all, could be worse than being married to her deceased husband. Nothing, that is, until her unscrupulous brother-in-law decides to marry her. With no other recourse, April and her brother concoct a plan--one that involves the unsuspecting doctor’s assistant, Joel Larson.

Joel Larson doesn't want to be married. In fact, he’s perfectly happy with things the way they are, but when he’s sent to check on April’s sick child, things take an unexpected turn for the worse. In one instant, he finds a gun and a mandate to marry April staring him in the face. Can a marriage that begins with a shotgun be just the thing Joel needs or has April just confined herself to another miserable marriage?

Tifferz Take-

I devoured this novel in one sitting and was swept back to 1878. Ms. Nordin has created a masterpiece that is truly original and her own. I felt like I was in the story right along with April and Joel. I feared along with April. I was proud of Joel and the choices he makes.He really is a good guy! That does not want to get married. Shotgun Groom is jam packed with humor, mystery and romance. (contains sexual situations within marriage) The plot is believable and the characters are very well drawn and so realistic they nearly jump off the pages . I found the whole story deeply satisfying. I am still thinking of this story days later.
This book is in a series but also stands alone perfectly.
