A short sweet contemporary romance by Barbara Goss.

The premise of misdelivery of a mail order bride is so much fun for me, and this series has been a pleasure to listen to. This twist on the concept has given a fresh perspective on the old west and how things that are meant to be happen. Eden runs from her initial mail order husband to be and finds herself indebted to Andrew, a man who helped her. To repay her debt, Andrew has the intentions of making her work it off while walking to Hays..but this long trip has a different outcome than expected. Problem is, Andrew has Catherine, a mail order bride waiting for his return. Will Catherine understand the situation?How long is she willing to wait for his affection? I love that we get to see Addie, Martin, Sam and Fiona again in this story and that Addie is still up to her matchmaking ways. Her delightful way of subtly..or not so subtly organizing the lives of those she loves is so endearing and the results are perfect!
The casting of Meghan Kelly is wonderful with this story. Her voice is so easy to listen to, with an even pace, and pleasing voice for each of the characters. The differentiation between each is easily discernible and her gender changes are clear and concise. Wonderful rendition of the story.
I listened to this book. Great story and great performance. I am looking forward to more in this series! I loved the plot, characters and flow.
I never fail to enjoy books by Ms. Goss. This one was full of mystery, romance, inspiration and all the other things this author includes in all of her books. The book is well written and there are twists and turns to the very end. Intrigue follows Leila while she endeavors to remember who she is and Dan determines to keep from falling in love, finding all the obstacles to letting Leila into his heart. As should be, in the end, with God’s help, everyone finds their place and those plaguing Dan and Leila are brought to justice.
The narration was great. Ms. Goss seems to have a knack for using only the best narrators.
