Publisher's Summary

Life will throw a lot of trouble your way - but love is always the reward. 

As an orphan who was raised by the Chippewa Indian tribe, Garrett Harding has grown up caught between two worlds. 

Belonging to neither the Chippewa people nor the nearby settlement of Iron Creek, Garrett has lived apart from both communities, welcoming the solitude of a life spent alone. 

But now, he has had enough of the loneliness - now, Garrett wants a wife. 

Katy Jones is desperate. 

After a deadly pandemic left her a widow, Katy now finds herself trapped in a disease-ridden town. 

She is desperate to flee before she falls victim to the same sickness that recently took the life of her husband - but her rebellious marriage left her disowned from her family, and now Katy has no one to turn to for protection or help.

Needing a way out of town fast, Katy advertises as a mail-order bride, and it seems that fortune is on her side when Garrett sends her his reply. 

Her journey to meet him in his homeland is a troubled one, but once she arrives, Garrett is there with his kindness and support, and Katy is hopeful for their future together. 

But Katy is carrying a life-changing secret that she must keep from Garrett until after their wedding. 

As their connection deepens, her guilt for deceiving Garrett begins to overwhelm her need for secrecy. 

How long will she be able to keep the truth from her husband-to-be? 

The Mountain Man’s Mail-Order Surprise is a charming story about love and forgiveness. Will Katy ever find the courage to tell Garrett the truth in time to save their relationship? And if she does, will Garrett ever forgive her for lying to him?

To lose yourself in this romantic tale, scroll up and click “buy” right now. Love is nothing without trust.

Stupid trope

Problem that could easily resolved by honestly talking to each other is the main conflict. I DNF'd at chapter 12. I want my MCs to use common sense

Mountain man's mail order surprise

This is a great start to a new series. Garret is a half Indian and wants a wife. Katy Jones had the perfect life than her husband died. She is pregnant but doesn't know yet. She answers a add for a wife. This story holds your attention and draws you in. I got irritated at Katy for keeping secrets. But I understand that she was scared. This is going to be a great series . Gina Dobbs does a great job narration this book. I received a copy of this book from audiobooks unleashed but that has no influence on my review. If this review is any help will you please click on the helpful link below. Thank you.

Mail-Order Trope

This was my first experience with Karla Gracey's work and I enjoyed it. One of my favorite tropes is the mail order trope and this story delivered with a great tale about a woman with a secret and a man who feels alone. I listened to this audiobook in one sitting and I am interested in acquiring more of the author's work. Gina Dobbs' narration was great and added to the story's entertainment. I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and I have voluntarily left this review.
