Kit McBride Gets a Wife

Berkley. (McBride, Bk. 1). Aug. 2022. 352p. ISBN 9780593335574. pap. $17. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
It is 1886 in the wilderness of Bucks’ Creek, Montana, and 14-year-old Junebug has had enough of cooking, cleaning, and caring for four messy older brothers. She arrives at the perfect solution: a want ad for a wife for her most agreeable brother, Kit. No one is more surprised than Junebug when the ad actually produces a lady and her maid, fresh off a rickety wagon from St. Louis, looking for Kit McBride, her betrothed. Shocked by the arrival of a beautiful woman, Kit never wanted a wife—or a meddling little sister with a big vocabulary and no cooking skills—but fate and one determined little sister have proven to outfox him. Junebug is both loquacious and endearing, and the McBride clan is full of unmarried strapping mountain men just begging to be snared.
VERDICT This first installment in a planned series from Barry (Bound for Glory, writing as Tess LeSue) will leave fans ready for a return trip to Buck’s Creek.
