This boxed set is the books 5-8 in the Bear Creek series. This is a mail order bride historical western setting. It’s not without interesting history tidbits about the Sioux Indians that live nearby and the time period this was set in has its own differences. These books are very clean romance and language. I am invested in these characters and what happens in the town.
Book 5- This book focuses on newcomers Dimitri and his sister Sandy. Dimitri places a mail order bride ad which is answered by many but Emily is the one that catches his attention. She is a different kind of woman with her dress and actions but this intrigues Dimitri.
Book 6- This book is about Tanner, the town’s deputy, and a newcomer Bethany. Outlaws threaten to burn the lands and kill people so the townspeople and Sioux work together to stop them.
Book 7- This book is about Barthelme, the pastor, of Bear Creek and about Samantha, one of the sisters that previously came to town with the outlaws but had redemption turning on them. A tragedy strikes which gets Samantha thinking differently about men. Several weddings happen during this book, I wonder who is left to marry 😉
Book 8- This book focuses on Peter, a ranch hand, and Shirley, one of the sisters. A blizzard causes some issues and a sweet Christmas comes shortly after.
The narrator had a good cadence for the story.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for an honest review.
Books 5-8 continue the story of the mail order brides in Bear Creek. New characters and some familiar ones follow the series. The history is rich and the characters memorable. The narration was good. Sometimes I want to read a light story that’s worthy of my time. This one definitely qualifies.
I listened to this entire book series on audio. The first 4 books, great. Books 5-8 are great, however, the narrator for 5-8, ugh. Especially with book 6. ( more on that following )
I did listen to this on audio. The narrator is fair at best, to be honest. Half the time she gives the heroine a southern accent, other times no. Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh, and man, This bugged me so bad to the point I wanted to stop listening to the book. ( I didn’t tho because it was so action-packed ). She kept saying the livery stable…instead of livery as in I will live a 100 years, she kept saying live as in Saturday Night Live. OH, man. It bugged me so so much! I guess I will see how this narrator does in the next book. This happened the entire 5-8 books. Sigh. I have the next 4 and this same narrator does that one too. I probably won’t be listening to it.
Book 5 – I loved that there was a “disabled” character in this book. I love how realistic this character was and how she knew lots of Indian Sign Language.
The heroine in this book is fantastic. I love how down-to-earth she is.
This story was fantastic and I loved the way everyone comes together.
Book 6 –
This story was fantastic!! I mean wow!!!
Everything was perfect in the story. Action-packed, suspenseful.
Book 7 – I thought this one was not up to the authors’ normal standards. There were repetitive stories being used that felt forced.
Book 8 – Loved this story. The characters are fantastic and I loved the story. There were a couple twists that I did not see coming.
