I really wanted to like this book, I like the premise, it could have been a great light read/listen. However the writing is horrible, truly horrible, it was awkward. I wasn't able to finish the book.
This romantic western mail-order bride story has some really interesting twists & turns. It holds your interest very well throughout the entire book.
I won't give away any secrets to spoil your own imaginings. You will have to read or hear it for yourself. I'm siure you will enjoy this wonderful book.
I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
I enjoyed listening to Capital Bride. The plot is great and I loved the characters. The little girls are adorable. The narrator did a credible job, for the most part, though, at times, she was a bit over dramatic. Happy reading!
Very predictable in that they they got married he was a ranch owner had plenty of men to run the ranch.
The little girls were friends from the start. The mail harder bride got shot by someone she thought of as a brother.
Her husband realised how much he loved her. Shot the other one she had a son and lived happy ever after
