Publisher's Summary

Come along for the ride to meet feisty Boston city girls who know what they want, and rugged Montana men who just need to be loved. It's 1900, and things are changing fast in sleepy Sun River. As the town begins to expand, its inhabitants are getting restless, looking for love and adventure.

Why would an accomplished governess respond to an advertisement in the Matrimonial Times? Myra Gilbert had never considered such a thing, but something has awoken within her and she is determined to take her chance on love.

Carlton Green claimed his lands, and now has the deeds in his grasp. But something is missing in his life. Will his quest to find love fill that hole, or is there something from his past that could change everything and leave him with nothing?

    "My Musings"

    Hmm, this story was just underdeveloped. The characters lack any real depth. Now, the narrator did an excellent job, and I would listen to him again. Happy reading!

    "A Happy Ending.."
    Any additional comments?


    This story was short and to the point without much drama.

    My main complaint was how short it was and didn't allow much time to connect with the characters.

    Overall, the book was a descent read, The book does have a Happy Ending.


    Alan Taylor did well with the narration.

    Story
    "Nice Mail Order Bride; Good New Series"

    A Bride for Carlton was a great beginning for the Sun River Brides series. I liked the characters and the setting. The story was neat and clean with a fulfilling ending. Overall, this was a very relaxing and enjoyable listen. I like calling these cozies as they make me feel comfy and cozy.

    Alan Taylor's narration was great. He had a smooth consistent tone and was definitely easy on my ears. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him read this short story. He did a wonderful job.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mail Order Bride - A Bride for Carlton to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, i never read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that they took time getting to know each other and going on real dates before getting married.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the part where his son said he would rather live with them and not his grandpa.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't know about extreme, but the part with the boy at the end of the book made me very happy

    Story
    "Lots of Potential"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a quick fun listen. Short and to the point.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I did like the way the ending wrapped things up and didn't leave you to wonder what would happen or why.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I thought he did great on the male narration, however the female part seemed very robotic.


    Do you think Mail Order Bride - A Bride for Carlton needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The first half of the book was great, but the second half seemed rushed. It would be nice to have a prequel to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I would try this author again. The book had alot of potential to be great.

    "A Good Read"

    I really liked the characters, storyline, and easy flow. It was a short story but had my attention from the start. This is my first time reading (listening) any of Karla Gracey's books. I know that I will be reading more from her in the future.
