Laurel Weidner desires a life of her own away from Philadelphia society and a dull, boring marriage. She is sent to live with her aunt in Lawrence, Massachusetts. When her aunt dies in a tornado, she gets a job at the Brown Textile Mill to avoid going back home. Two months later the mill burns down, and her father threatens to bring her back to Philadelphia.
When the mill and her livelihood perish with the fire, she has no other choice but to answer an ad in the Grooms' Gazette and become a Mail-Order Bride. Will she find peace and long lasting love in the arms of a stranger?
Griffin Benning needs a mother for his children. When his wife died, he lost his two children to his in-laws who claimed to have a better environment for raising his children.

Will his ad for a Mail-Order Bride provide what he needs? Can he find love and happiness with a stranger?
Can these two strangers find a common ground to reach their goals along with a happy-ever-after?

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!
