Publisher's Summary

Abigail Johnson hadn't expected that a lawman of the Wild West would ignite something in her she’d thought died along with her first husband. Now that they are married, he wants to take her into the Indian Territory.
Gabe Hawkins aims to find what lies further beneath Abby’s matronly facade. When an order from the territory judge reassigns Gabe to Fred, Indian Territory, he and Abby are forced to start a new life away from civilization.
When a gang of outlaws roll into town and take over the trading post, Abby wishes she’d listened to her husband. Instead, she finds herself a hostage, and Gabe is trying to find a way to get her out alive.

Clean sweet read

This is a sweet clean read about a man who is a Marshall and has to go west for his job, he doesn’t want to be alone and picks a wife. She agrees to marry him as they travel they get to know each other well and love soon follows. Once they get there they find there is an outlaw gang near. He must go and leave her at home to do his job. What follows is a story that pulls you in with a danger to their love story. There are a few twists and turns that grabs your attention.

I thought the narrator has improved over the first story she narrated. There are still a few issues but a much easier pleasant listen. Her character voices both are very good, some still sounds a little robotic but all in all it was a good listen. I like both her male and female voices, I had no trouble knowing who was talking and what they were feeling. There are no volume changes, no background noises and no repeating of wording. The narrator does do a good job on the emotions I had no trouble feeling what they were going through. Some of her character voices were better than others but for the most part they were nice and very pleasant. I found this to be a clear and clean audio that pulls you in.

Gabe has issues he must deal with from the lost of love ones but so does Abby, both have lost some very important people and they really are not looking for more than companionship. Gabe picked an older woman for reasons you will find out later on. That reason throw me and I sure wasn’t expecting it. The characters are very likeable, I enjoyed watching them grow and find their hearts desires. I liked Abby and how she could stand her ground even when the outlaws coming calling. I thought the plot was great, very interesting with great twists that holds your attention.

Quick clean historical romance

The Marshal's Bride
The Marshal's Bride is a quick, clean, romantic story. It follows mail order bride Abigail as she weds and moves West with her new Marshal husband. Along the way they find love, but also struggle in their new dangerous environment. I enjoyed most aspects of this story- I thought the plot was interesting and kept me listening. The characters were likeable- if a little overly dramatic in their romantic thoughts and declarations after knowing each other a very short time. There were some aspects of it that I didn't think added to the story- like a sideline about the Civil War. However, the story moved along quickly- and I enjoyed it. The one downfall of this story was the narration. It was better than that of book one, but it was definitely not fantastic. It was a little choppy and could have used a bit more editing. I might recommend this as an ebook read instead of an audiobook.
