Most of the time I was reading this book, I just wanted to smack the heroine, Felicity. She was very superficial, arrogant, condescending and totally spoiled. She put herself up as a mail order bride because she thought it would be "fun." She had extremely unrealistic expectations of life in the west and pretty much thought he should change his attitude to suit her. The man she was supposed to marry wasn't much better. He played a rather mean trick on her when she first arrived and then had a few surprises for her that he failed to mention in his letters. The ending was significantly better than the beginning but the change was too fast to make it totally believable. All in all, not a horrible story but not a great one either.
Full of surprises is one way of putting it. It's okay but you have to stop and think, why would she stay after everything he lied to her about and left out by omission? I've never read one quiet like this. While it's okay I just don't know if I could stay with a man that has lied to me from day one and left some VERY important parts out. Their relationship is based on lies and omissions from day one. Whatever the reasons would you really want to stay with someone like this? How would you know that you could truly trust him? From the first two books I read by this author I thought the main character was from those books and then he isn't even in this one.
Felicity came to become the wife of Peter but was met at the depot by Noah Call. She was told that Peter was ill and he only had one horse for them to travel to the ranch. She had to leave all trunks behind and had to ride on the same horse with Noah. I will not say anymore but this book is full of surprises. I think you will like it.
The story has a very abrupt ending. It is like the end of a chapter only the book just stops in the middle of her own story with no idea of what she is supposed to say next. Other than that it is a good story line and it keeps you entertained.
