I really did enjoy this one it has a plot that you really don’t think about when you think of the West and strong young cowboys. I kept thinking wow could it be this and then talk myself out of it. I can’t think of anything worse than planning to marry and having the man you decided on not be interested in you. Many things went through my head and it is pretty easy to work out. It really is an exciting read that really makes the listener think and contemplate over many issues. To say anymore about the plot would really give the whole story away. What I will say it I was surprised in more ways than one.
Ms. Kelly has fast become one of my favorite narrators she brings so much emotion to her voice. Her character voices were delightful from her male to her female ones. You always know who is talking and just what they are feeling. She gives such insight to her characters as they hold you spellbound giving such energy and passion as she keeps you entertained. You can really hear the disappointment, anger and the thrills as she takes you on a night of passion that is shocking but exciting. There are no repeating of words, no background noise and if any breaks were taken I could not tell. A very clean and clear listen that pulls you in as one woman’s heartbreaks when she finds it might not be so easy to have what she dreams of. Her performance is wonderful as she uses her tones to make you see the truth, feel the pain of one women and a man who really want the same things but not sure if they can have it.
Ms. Goss sure has out done herself with the story twisting her way right into your heart. I really doubt you can listen to this and not have your heart break for Amber. The war has not been her friend she has lost so much and is afraid she will never know what it feels like to be a mother, wife and hold her own child. To make her dreams come true she becomes a mail order bride only to find things are not as she has hoped. Two brother holding secrets but only one will love which will it be? I had mixed feeling with Charles and Garrett. Garrett is so cold that is until you see him and the words he gives his brother. Charles shows feeling but is so selfish that you really just want to shake him. Garrett is the night of shining armor but his deeds are many. Both will feel the shame and guilt of one night, one night when they should have known better. Many saying came into my thoughts as I listened to this. Come into my parlor said the spider to the fly. At first if you do not excide try try again. You’re so vain. My mama didn’t raise no fool. Deceit.. fool me one shame on me fool me twice shame on me. It really is a good story that pulls you in trying to work out what each is trying to hide. I found this to be humorous at times with wonderful characters and at other times very shocking lol. It is not a story you will forget very easy.

Summary: The American Civil War leaves behind a shortage of men in the South. Wanting a husband and children, Amber Wakefield travels to Hunter’s Grove, Kansas in answer to a mail order bride ad. There, she finds not everything is as it seems.
- Romance typically isn’t my genre, but I found this enjoyable.
- It’s totally predictable from the cover right down to the conclusion, yet that does not detract from the fun factor.
- Parts made me laugh out loud. That’s always a plus.
- It’s short enough that it didn’t frustrate me. (A story like this where the two main characters dance around each other being miserable has the potential to get old real quick. But the length of this story was perfect to let the characters get flustered to a point then bring everything to a satisfying conclusion.)
- Adult themes are handled tastefully. I’d consider this a “clean” book.
Conclusion: A nice, light, inspirational romance story.
*I received a free copy of the audiobook. This did not influence me in any way, and I chose to leave a review.

This is such a feel good story, old fashioned western romance. I loved how innocent and honest the characters are portrayed even the scoundrels have conciounses that show up in the end. The presenter was really good at portraying the different feelings and attitudes of everyone. I am sure that is not an easy thing to do. Especially having to do both genders I would think that is very taxing. I really enjoyed this production.
