Publisher's Summary

Delightful from start to finish

Mail order brides have such a hard life never knowing if the one they pick is real or not. What if you became one travel so many miles to find out this is not the man you thought he was? You really have to wonder how many times this did happen and just what the poor women did. Come take a listen about one woman who found the man not to be who he said he was and wanted way more then she was willing to give as she takes off running as fast as he can She finds she might have jumped from the frying pan into the fire as she tells one too many lies to get away from her groom to be. What you will find between these pages will make you laugh, want to cry as you hold your breath wondering just how can it get any worse as this author weaves her way right in to your heart with a plot that makes you want to close your eyes an pray.

Ms. Kelly does a wonderful job narrating from her wonderful character voices to the delightful emotions she puts into her audios. You can hear the emotions that each character is going through as well as the fear, happiness and sorrow they must go through. There are no background noise, no repeating of words, no volume changes. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I always knew who was talking, what they were going through. She really brought the characters to life pulling me in and painting a picture I could see in my mind. I could really hear the desperation in Eden’s voice and the angry at being dupe in Andrews’s voice. This is a very clean, crisp audio that is very realistic that you almost feel like you are watching a movie. I really enjoyed how she show the sparks flying between these two and how she really brought out their true feeling for each other and other characters. Her male voices were just as good as her female voices. I totally enjoyed listening to this audio.

What really made this audio for me was how realistic the scenes where, this is a very believable story that really touches you heart. It is about what one woman is willing to do to get away from a man she can’t trust to find a better life for herself. She doesn’t plan things out very well and gets into one mess after another with lies on top of lies. One man who does a good deed wishes he has looked the other way. It is so true no good deed goes unpunished but in this case the plot thickens as Andrew has to deal with his own issues of what he has waiting at home for him. I really liked the preacher and his outlook on marrying mail order brides as well as his mother and her matchmaking ways. There are many twists and turns with danger around the corner. There was a time or two when my heart was in my throat. It is a very well thought out story that holds the listeners attention getting you involved yelling at the characters. I totally enjoyed it from start to finish and really wished all mail order brides who find their selves in a mess had an Andrew to save them.

Best one yet

This is my favorite story in the series, thus far. I really enjoyed the characters and their humorous antics; there were several moments that had me, literally, laughing out loud. I rarely listen to books a 2nd or 3rd time, however, I’m considering doing just that with this book. It’s just a charming little story that lifts the spirit. Meghan Kelly, as usual, did a fabulous job with the narration. If it’s not clear, I absolutely recommend this book! I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

A good read.

I liked listening to this book. It has a typical Barbara Goss characters of strong females who know what they want. I did feel that the main character was naive at times and I thought that she would have learnt her lesson but unfortunately not. However, she is a head strong character and I believe that she did not think things through and that is why she ends up where she did. Saying that I liked that she took action instead of sitting there to be rescued.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
