Publisher's Summary

Carrie Grinnell put all her hopes and her few possessions in a carpet bag and boarded a train heading West. She had found a husband through an advertisement for a mail order bride. Carrie gets off the train anxious to meet her intended Mr. Bowen, a cattle rancher, but he is nowhere to be found. In his stead is a cowboy sent to fetch her.

That cowboy is the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on. What happens next is completely unforeseen. Mr. Bowen is not the man he claims to be. When her hopes for the future begin to unravel, it becomes clear that life has other plans for Carrie and the cowboy.

Painfully ridiculous story line

No substance to the story... Rugged cowboy declares love and proposes marriage to a stranger after exchanging two or three sentences. Every scenario of story is annoyingly unlikely. Guessing this one was written by a male who did zero research about the mail order bride readers... language is coarse and leading female is a weak, simple minded idiot.

ouch!

First book I've listened to that the narrator was really not good. I think I might could have finished it if the narrative had been better.

Ugh

My review may have been better and I would love to listen to this book, but the narrator is terrible. If it comes out with a different narrator I'll try it again.
