After a storm strands her overnight in Will Slade's cabin, Blythe Granville's reputation is in shambles. The townspeople doubt that she was innocently nursing him back to health after saving his life. Now Blythe must accept Will's proposal: a marriage in name only to save her good name. But the former socialite is determined not to fall for her new husband…even if she's drawn to the gruff stranger who's vowed to stand by her, in sickness and in health.
Will never wanted to remarry after his ex-wife betrayed him. But now he finds himself hitched to a city girl who has no idea how to keep a house…but is somehow chiseling her way into his heart. As Blythe melts Will's crusty facade, though, they're discovering that this most unexpected union might just lead to true love.

My review: Wolf Creek Wife by Penny Richards (Wolf Creek #5)
Good clean historical romance and Christian book.
Strong female character that at times is very strong and yet other times very young. I really like Blythe Granville and most of her choices. Blythe fell in love and eloped. Later she found out that he stole her money and they were not really married, Her family sent her away from Boston to a small town where she has two brothers and her mother.
Blythe is now a school teacher. One day she went for a ride by herself out in the countryside and a big dog wants her to follow him. She founds a man in the woods really sick. Blythe gets him to his house and spends the night taking care of him.
She is rescued the next morning by the search party to find her. Her brother and the preacher demand that Will Slade marry her.
Will never has been so sick before. He does not want to marry again. His first wife divorced him and left for another man. He fell into drinking. Will stopped drinking. He owns the sawmill in town. Blythe's brother wants to buy it from him and no way does he want to sell to Granville. His ex-wife wants him back.
I am glad that I do not have to cook on wood stove or arranged marriages. It is a nice look of what life might have been like at that time.
I do like Wolf Creek and would like to read the whole series someday.
I was given this ARC to read for free by NetGalley and in return I agreed to give a honest review of Wolf Creek Wife.
