Nailed It

This was another great mail order bride story. I loved that the h was independent yet willing to get her hands dirty and discover how to run a household without a staff. I also enjoyed that her parents came around to her way of thinking. She also discovered that her mother was not the weakling that she thought she was. The H got exactly what he wanted and needed. He thought he just wanted a wife to be a mother for his two little girls and he got a woman who could not only do that but could make him laugh and get him out of his own head and live life. Blended families don't have to have lots of problems and this book showed how this mix can and should work. I got this book via audiobook

Wonderful book!

This is my first book by Carra and I can't wait to read more of her historical romance! Loved how Laurel learned both home keeping and farm wife skills from the book by Aunt Jenny!

Very Enjoyable

What I love so much about Mail Order Bride stories is the hope, total trust and eventual fulfillment of the relationship between the women and men of that era. This is one of those stories.
When Laurel suffers the effects and losses of a tornado she is at a loss as to what she can do to survive.
Griffin's wife died and his two children live with their grandparents some distance away but he would love to have them living with him again so he advertises in the Grooms' Gazette for a Mail Order Bride.
She answers his advert but neither of them are totally honest in their letters which is revealed as the story progresses.
How they deal with this and other things that happen when they get married is what this book is about.
Carra Copelin has written a fast paced and lively story with many sweet and amusing moments in it. There is mirth, tenderness, tragedy and it is a love story that touches the heart.
Cindy Killavey is the very capable and talented narrator of this audiobook and helps to bring it to life.
