I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
Betsy is looking for a husband, but not one from her area, who, according to Betsy, are ill mannered and cow hands. So Betsy puts an ad in papers in the cities as a mail order bride.
Roderick, a New York Architect, who is tired of the women he meets, as they are very shallow and want him for his money. He answers Betsy ad, but Betsy wasn't 100% truthful.. Roderick must discipline her for this.
Great story and I've listened to a few of Amelia Smarts books, and enjoyed all.
The narration was also well done
Catching Betsy by Amelia Smarts was a good read. Betsy is only eighteen but she wants love and romance. Betsy decided to find a mail-order groom but wasn’t completely honest in her ad. Roderick responds to her ad but isn’t happy about her lies. I loved Betsy and Roderick’s story.
A thoroughly enjoyable historical romance with an alpha mail order groom, a feisty woman, a little bare-bottom discipline and a bit of trouble in the form of a stalker. It is a pretty fast moving (almost 4 hour listen) that is a perfect blend of sweet historical courtship and naughty bedroom (or in some cases a picnic blanket) antics. Roderick takes a gamble and crosses the country to catch and protect Betsy, and it turns out he is just what her young heart ordered.
If you enjoy a quick, spicy western romance, this book is just what your heart might order too.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
I enjoyed this story. Two engaging, plausible and strong-willed lead characters, who share a bolt-from-the-blue attraction. Their developing relationship involves spanking, with tension from an unwelcome admirer and society’s expectations. I thought the narrative and dialogue had a nice period “feel”, as did the setting and background details. Nothing like the more usual "cowboy" story set in the "Old West".
And I enjoyed Jack Leonard's narration, his accent was just right for me.
