Fantastic Story -- Compelling Listen!
Review by Carrie Fancett Pagels
You will definitely find the heroine, Abigail, very difficult to take at first. She's a handful! Opinionated, high strung, and with "rules, rules, rules" her leading guide. Whew! But she has suffered much and she has a good heart beneath all that prissiness. I love that we got a second romance in this story, with Abigail's boss. Or is it a romance? Hmm. Seems like one. But I might have been wrong. Maybe that's a strong friendship, due to their age difference. Maybe the author is leading up to something else...
Hero Mack is wonderful. You'll love him from the start. And he'd never be satisfied by a passive sweet wife. Wait -- he is one of the only ones not wanting a mail-order bride. But this guy needs a wife. Trust me, I know the type! With all the head-butting he and Abigail do, it would be a wonder if they could overcome their differences and be friends much less sweethearts. Will Kim Vogel Sawyer work her magic on these two?
Highly Recommend! This novel is available in multiple formats. Check out CBD's options.
Publisher's summary: Abigail Brantley grew up in affluence and knows exactly how to behave in high society. But when she is cast from the social registers due to her father's illegal dealings, she finds herself forced into a role she never imagined: tutoring rough Kansas ranchers in the subjects of manners and morals so they can "marry up" with their mail-order brides. Mack Cleveland, whose father was swindled by a mail-order bride, wants no part of the scheme to bring Eastern women to Spiveyville, Kansas, and he's put off by the snooty airs and fastidious behavior of the "little city gal" in their midst. But as time goes by, his heart goes out.
