Review | Instant Frontier Family

amazon BN.com Christianbook.com Goodreads
It’s been almost a year but Maddie O’Rourke finally has her family back together and she’s ecstatic, except with their chaperone. Maddie had been expecting an older lady but what she got was Michael Haggerty. What’s worse is that her siblings want her to marry him!

Marriage isn’t for Maddie! She’s seen how it destroys and won’t allow herself to get caught in that mess, especially when she has children to care for.

Michael Haggerty is willing to help Maddie out until he finds a job – but he won’t be putting forth an effort in that until he knows she’s really going to care for her siblings! He still can’t believe she sent for them – he thought she’d be too selfish for even that! He’s definitely not up for starting an instant frontier family, like the kids would prefer.

Hott Reviewof Instant Frontier Family:

I really enjoyed Instant Frontier Family . Maddie’s work ethic and her willingness to work herself to the bone to provide for her family shows a love and willingness to be God’s disciple that many people don’t have nowadays. It was fun to watch her fall in love especially as she protested that she did not want that more than anything else. Her siblings were a great source of annoyance even to me as the reader. She kept saying how she felt guilty that she had a short temper with them and yet, I don’t know that I could have been as sweet as she was to them. All in all Instant Frontier Family is a great read and a terrific addition to this series!

Author Bio:

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.

Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
