I throughly enjoyed Trudy! All of the books around stand alone novels, but their are characters in each of the books that are mentioned in each.
This story revolves around Trudy the "Mail order bride", and the the future groom, Seth. They have decided to marry right away. They find that they have a lot to learn about each other; and all the trails, and tribulations that come with it. I love each of the main characters, and all the other quirky people in the town of Sweet Water Springs.
If you love romances that are clean, and sweet than you will love this story!!

Listening, rather than reading a story adds a new dimension to the experience.

I can tell you that I throughly enjoyed this book. The main characters; Grace, and Fritz are well thought out, and developed in a wonderful way. Their blossoming love for each other was truly inspiring. This novella has all the love, and romance you could want in a story. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of romance. The story is about the wonder, and excitement of a love that you find when just the right man comes along.
