Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Priscilla's Piggy by Marisa Masterson


Book: Priscilla’s Piggy

Author: Marisa Masterson

Genre: Sweet Historical Romance

Release date: Febraury 10, 2023

This marriage needs something more than a pig to hold it together

Jack Dixon knew his mother was right. It was time he married. He’d go along with whatever she writes in the letter to the matchmaker.

Priscilla Pringle fell in love with the man who wrote such a tender letter. Too bad that the man she meets in Missouri is his opposite. She’d leave and go home except for the little piggy she is bottle feeding.

Will she stay after the piggy is weaned? Is Jack the only one who needs to change to make a marriage work?

Historical Romance is one of my favorite genres to read. Priscilla's Piggy by Marisa Masterson is the most recent book in the genre that I have read. It is Book 34 in the Westward Home and Hearts Mail-Order Brides, which various authors write. This book is the first book that I have read by author Marisa Masterson. 

The time is 1870 and Jack Dixon has returned from War and is exhausted. His Mother is continually telling him he needs a wife. Jack agrees to allow his mom to sign up for a Mail Order Bride. Priscilla Pringle received the letter that Jack's Mom wrote about Jack. She falls in love with the man in the letter before meeting him. She travels to Missouri to meet Jack and become his "Mail Order Bride". Priscilla has grown to love the Piggy on the Farm and has been bottle-feeding it. Priscilla understands that Jack is suffering from the effects of War and feels that she can help him through some of that. Will Priscilla stay and allow the relationship to grow? Will Jack be able to grow and be like the man in the letter that Priscilla grew to love? Do Jack and Priscilla ever grow to love one another with real love? 

I LOVE Mail Order Bride books and this is probably one of the sweetest ones that I have ever read. I love the Historical time of the book and the fact that Jack was a war Hero. Priscilla is such a kind-hearted woman and I LOVE how the Piggy changed her heart about raising pigs. The book is a fast read as it is only 139 pages. It is also a sweet story that grabbed my attention from the very first chapter. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves Historical Romance books! GREAT BOOK! 

The smiling teacher. That’s what her students called her. How did this dedicated teacher end up as an author? A spinal cord injury took her out of the high school classroom. After seven years of healing, she asked the Lord what He had for her. Now, thirty-seven books later, Marisa is still enjoying the direction He sent her when God opened the door for her to begin writing.

Marisa’s sweet romances often are set in her home state of Wisconsin. Growing up, she loved hearing stories about her family who pioneered in that state. Those stories, in part, are what inspire ideas for her books.

Though she’s from Wisconsin, Marisa and her husband of thirty-four years live in Saginaw, Michigan. They have two grown children and a precious three-year-old granddaughter, Hunny Junebug. She’s been Marisa’s best physical therapy and keeps her moving.


More from Marisa

As a girl of about ten, I remember holding a glass 7-Up bottle for the orphaned piglet. My grandpa attached a black rubber nipple and had me feed it—just like Fern in Charlotte’s Web. Unlike Fern, I knew not to name it or grow attached. It would be sold when it reached 40 pounds.

That memory came in handy with Priscilla’s Piglet. I wondered what I could add to keep my heroine at the farm after she decides the hero is not her perfect match. The memory prodded my brain. Who doesn’t love a baby that is in need—even if it’s a baby pig! It seemed the perfect fit for this story.
