The first in a series, The Guilty Proposal is a sweet, western romance. This is my first Barbara Goss book, and really enjoyed the story. Leonor A Woodworth, a favorite narrator of mine, performs this feature of Travis, a single man who has gotten himself in an unfortunate circumstance. As a result of an accident that he feels responsible for, he proposes to his friend Libby. Just as this is happening, who should walk in? The love of his life. Now being betrothed to a woman whom he doesn’t love and wanting a woman he can’t have leaves Travis in a terrible situation. There is a cast of supporting characters that make this adventure he has gotten himself into fun to listen to. Between arranged marriages, kidnappings, roving doctors and best friends in love with your fiance, this book is sure to keep you entertained and wanting more.
Leonor A Woodworth provides a wonderfully warm performance. She is one of my favorite narrators and find her faith based narrations to be the perfect remedy for my busy mind.
Loved this one. I have no idea how Barbara Goss keeps bringing new and exciting stories. She is a talented writer and gifted storyteller. The characters in this book were fantastic. I loved how everything flowed and the development of the characters.

This was a wonderful start to a new series. I enjoyed the story and that it was wholesome. Travis proposes to his friend Libby–mostly out of misplaced guilt, and shortly after, the love of his life walks in. How do you continue a ruse of marriage to one woman when your thoughts and heart are fully with another? He is not one to break hearts or his word so he continues with Libby. You’ll have to listen to see how this story progresses and ends. Looking forward to the other books in the series.
