Publisher's Summary

Stuck in a life of servitude to her penny-pinching brother, Emily Darling longs for a more exciting existence. When a packet with travel tickets, meant for one Ethel Darton, accidentally lands on her doormat, Emily sees a chance for escape. Having turned down the dreary suitors that have come her way, is it possible a new existence also offers a different kind of man?
Daniel Saunders has carved out a life for himself in Wyoming - a life missing one thing - a wife. Having scrimped and saved to bring his mail-order bride from New York, he is outraged to find in her stead a runaway fraud. Even worse, the impostor is the sister of his old enemy.
But people are not always as they seem, and sometimes the heart knows more than the head.

A Mail Order Bride Surprise

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book on a long car ride recently. It really helped the time fly. The premise is unusual and there are twists and turns that get your heart racing. This book will stay with me. I could imagine the time and place, and it was fun to watch the couple fall in love. Good characters! I recommend this book.

Excellent story, and characterization with plenty of plot twists. I highly recommend this book and audible!
