Publisher's Summary

This inspiring romance by Christy Award winner Deeanne Gist sets a spirited gal and an enterprising lumberjack on a collision course in 1866 Washington Territory.
Set to lose half his timberland unless he finds a wife soon, widower Joe Denton places an order for a bride who can cook. When she arrives, the bonnie lass certainly cooks up a storm - but she knows nothing about marrying Joe.

This was a very slow paced romance that had it's emotional, funny, romantic and sad moments but I found myself scrolling along some chapters in order to get to the end. This is not because it was a horrible story or badly written but it just isn't my preferred listen. I also didn't realise that this was an inspirational Christian listen - not that that would have put me off but I'm sadly more into bodice ripper historical or paranormal romances.

So, if you're looking for a light, sweet romance that has no 'hot' spots except kissing then this is your book. The author's comments at the end were interesting as she explained most of what the premise of the story was true and a lot of the things that happened were accurate and a historical fact.

Worth a credit? Unfortunately, not mine but there are many listeners out there who may enjoy this.

A Talented Writer Fell Overboard

Deeanne Gist is an amusing storyteller. I admire her handling of faith in the midst of messy situations. I did not enjoy, however, this book's lust-gone-nuts focus. Leaving the details of a lustful imagination to the imagination of the reader is quite romantic. Filling in a constant description of those thoughts AS the story robs from story-telling.
Needless to say, this was not a favorite offering from Gist.
