Miss Sally J. Pinkerton runs the most reputable ladies boarding house in St. Louis. Situated on the edge of the frontier, it attracts all sorts who are making their way West for a better life. But when her beloved boarder Bess Stapleton dies, Miss Pinkerton promises to find someone to help the girl’s brother, James—a widower with two young children— and in the process, she finds a new calling: helping lonely frontiersmen find brides. And thus Miss Sally Pinkerton’s Ladies Boarding House and Matchmaking Service is born. An Accidental Match is the prologue to the Pinkerton Brides series.
An Accidental Match: The Mail Order Bride by Jane Fairchild is the first book in the Pinkerton Brides series and really sets up the premise of the series. Miss Pinkerton runs a boarding house and accidentally sets up a match, sending a girl out West to be a mail order bride. I liked the introduction to this series of stories. I was a bit surprised at how graphic the story was ~ I didn’t expect there to be a doors-open sex scene right off the bat. Some of the story didn’t seem believable to me. I would give this book 2.5 stars. I liked it well enough that I want to read more books in the series. The books in this series are short, “one hour reads”.
