Publisher's Summary

He's different from any man she's ever known. However, she's sworn never to risk her heart again.

Brooke Baker, sold as a mail-order bride, looks to her future with dread but firm resolve. If she survived Uncle Jackson, she can survive anyone. When Sky Jordan hears that his nefarious cousin has sent for a mail-order bride, he knows he has to prevent the marriage. No woman deserves to be left to that fate. Still, he's as surprised as anyone to find himself standing next to her before the minister.

Brooke's new husband turns out to be kinder than any man has ever been. But then the unthinkable happens and she holds the key that might save innocent lives but destroy Sky all in one fell swoop. It's a choice too unbearable to contemplate...but a choice that must be made.

A thirsty soul. Alluring hope. An oasis of love. Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.

    "A DIFFERENT KIND OF GROOM"
    What made the experience of listening to Rocky Mountain Oasis the most enjoyable?

    The reader's voice is smooth and easy to listen to. She makes each character's dialogue distinct.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rocky Mountain Oasis?

    Brooke sees her prospective groom standing to one side, holding one daisy to give her -- the only wedding flower he could find. She dreads being married to this man, but feels strangely drawn to him. Will she be able to save his life or will she choose to relinquish his in order to save others' lives in the town?


    What does Anne Johnston Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her rendition of the story brings drama to an already dramatic novel.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Who could turn it off?


    Any additional comments?

    ROCKY MOUNTAIN OASIS is a page-turner. You'll catch your breath every few pages.

    "Great first book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rocky Mountain Oasis to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My husband and I share an account so this is Samantha. I always remember the men better :) Sky is my favorite I like his character. He wasn't weepy like some men in romance novels. He was a good strong character.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Johnston Brown – was your favorite?

    She did a good job on all of them. I like her Sky voice I almost always knew when it was him just by his voice.


    Who was the most memorable character of Rocky Mountain Oasis and why?

    Sky again. I also liked the China lady that ran the store. My mind is terrible with names and I don't think you can ever get into a story as well when you listen to an audio book. You miss little things and I will more than likely listen to this again at some point.


    Any additional comments?

    Spoiler Alert:

    Thoughts from Samantha. I liked this book it made me cry once, sorry I'm terrible at names, when the man came back to give his money back to Sky for the purchase of the bride that got to me. I love it when people come to the Lord.

    If you like westerns you'll enjoy this. The narrator is great she does such a good job. The storyline is believable, and the settings are great.

    "Narrator's perfect diction subtracted"

    Ms. Bonner has perfect diction. That would normally be a postitive comment. However, in a western historical book, to hear her pronounce every consonant did not fit the book. Even when reading the voices of roughened, uneducated cowboys, they had perfect diction.

    The story didn't speak to me as I was continually cringing at the narration. Perhaps the author is also responsible for using language that wouldn't commonly be in the vocabulary of a frontiersman.

    "Enjoyable Story"
    What made the experience of listening to Rocky Mountain Oasis the most enjoyable?

    How Sky never waivered on his promise.


    What other book might you compare Rocky Mountain Oasis to and why?

    High Desert Haven


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Johnston Brown’s performances?

    She kept over emphasized words that were not the correct pronunciation, i.e. didn't into did-dent. At first I believed she must be British, but after researching I found she was not. I continued to be distracted by this and couldn't keep my mind on the story. Most people do not talk like this, especially mountain people!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    British Mountaineers

    "MAIL ORDER BRIDE SAVIOUR"

    Glad i chose this book. I really enjoyed it, easy listen and and past events are woven clearly and easily into current time. There is a lot of reference to Jesus Christ, as he is the hero's guiding light, and i found myself truly enjoying the way this creates the journey for the characters, not over the top but touching. Makes you think and feel. Enjoyable.

    Reading is more than a pass time for me. When my eyes are tired I was grateful to discover I can go between my kindle and audible library

    "Rocky Mountain Oasis: A pleasant surprise"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to all avid readers. It is hard to tear oneself from this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rocky Mountain Oasis?

    The most memorable moment for me was when Skye told Brook that he loved her and was comitted to her even before she had reason to trust him. He knew that she was a wounded soul and need his patients and tender attention. He cared for her in little was that matters to a womans heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I guess it would be the epilogue when it is my expected happily ever after. The loving scene Skye's family walks in on when coming to dinner. The bread burning because Skye has Brook otherwise occupied.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes. I listened to it at night and only fell asleep when my eyes could not bear to stay open. As soon as I got a bit of sleep I got up and resume listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so fasinated with this book that I immediately went online to purchase the entire series. I look forward to reading any other book published by this author. I love the way this author stress a personal relationship with God. I have each book on my kindle fire as well. There are questions that people often ask about God that are given matter of fact answers in the interaction of the characters, answers that speak into the lives of any reader to evaluate their own realationship with God.

    Great story and fun read. Predictable in many ways, but still a really well done book. Will be interested in other books by this author.
