An earthquake shook more than the ground in Silverpines, Oregon.
A silver-mine cave-in and lumber-camp mudslide caused a shortage of young men in town. Women were saddled with running businesses and ranches alone. Laura Bennett, owner of White Oaks ranch, sends for a mail-order husband.
Max Winters lost the love of his life, Catherine, to another man, so he decides to answer Laura’s ad. Since his true love was gone, he’d settle for a good partnership and a new life. He travels to Silverpines and is met with a beautiful bride and her adorable daughter, but also many trials and setbacks.
Will they overcome the tribulations and truly fall in love even after Catherine shows up as a widow?

I love a good clean romance and Barbara Goss never disappoints. This is such a sweet story involving a mail order husband! There are a few trials and tribulations that give just enough tension… will the tension be enough to break Laura and Max apart, or will they both find what they’re looking for?
I was given this free review copy Audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

What a fun scenario / book premise! I wish Max had a bit more self esteem, but otherwise an interesting and entertaining book! The narration was great! I had a hard time distinguishing characters by voice in two short scenes. But other wise very well done.
I love this author and will be sure to look for more books by this narrator as well! Even better if they’re together again! The narrator’s voice was a wonderful pick for this genre!
What a great read. I loved the story and characters in this book. The way the story unfolded was good. In the end I thought, hmmm odd, and then was shocked. I am looking forward to reading the next in this series! I have read this and listened to it on Audio. Loved them both
