Don't miss this series!

I love the romance of mail order bride stories! This is the first novel in my favorite of that type of series. Amanda Friday makes the character sound whiny, but that is appropriate since she is a young, coddled only child. I love the way the couple settles in together, each filling a void of sorts for the other. Though short, this is so enjoyable a romance, I highly recommend it.

Speed reading

Whew! I feel almost out of breath just listening to this. The story was short but sweet. However, the reading was done way too fast! It left me wondering if Amanda was related to a certain character in the book. She seemed never to slow down, as well. It certainly was not a relaxing experience.
