Great story, great narration

I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. I am a big fan of true to life westerns and this one hit the spot. It is not Louie Lamore grade but it stands out. I like the love story because it is clean and they get to know each other and still like each other before falling in love. I like the intrigue that surrounds the death of her father and the secrets that the colonel is keeping. the reveal is important. The listening public could use some more clean historical westerns. I like this one almost as much as I do the mail order brides books.
