When Cade Lawson sent for his mail order bride, Maggie O'Malley, he didn't know what to expect. He and his twin sons needed a woman in their lives, the babes a mother to take the place of their dead mamma and he needed a woman to love.

Maggie was anxious about becoming a mail order bride, marrying a man she'd never met, but once she laid eyes on Cade and his twin sons, she knew that this Thanksgiving was going to be the best she'd ever had.

It’s taken Cade Lawson two years to send for a mail-order bride. His twin sons are growing older, and the passing of their mother is no longer so painful. There are several things he expects in his soon-to-be wife, such as her ability to care for his children and tend to his needs. What he doesn’t anticipate is just how beautiful Maggie O’Malley is in the flesh.

Maggie is excited to begin this new chapter in her life. Though her family said she was foolish for becoming a mail-order bride, her correspondence with Cade put her fears at ease. He’s a good man with a big heart, and she knows she can love his children as if they were her own. When she finally meets the man himself, she’s taken aback. He’s not only a dream on paper; he’s equally as impressive in person.

The first night together, they know they’ve found something special – each other. As love blossoms, they will share Thanksgiving together, grateful for the chance at love and happiness.

Cade’s Thanksgiving is a heartwarming story romantics are bound to enjoy. I loved the characters, as well as the sweetness between Cade and Maggie. You can sense Cade’s need to connect with someone, just as you realize Maggie’s been longing for the one thing Cade can give her – a family. Although a short story, I thoroughly enjoyed the work, and felt my heart melt on more than one occasion. Those looking for something sweet and heartfelt should place this novella on their TBR list.
