I love Debra Holland books. Darcy is another sweet, clean and enjoyable mail order bride story. The book is in a series, but can stand alone well enough. Darcy and Gideon are characters that I can relate to and love. Darcy and Gideon's story to come together is rewarded with a safe happy ending.

Kathryn Ford knows one thing for sure; she will not marry the boring, arrogant man her father has arranged for her since the day she was born, simply as a pawn to enrich his vast holdings. When she discovers she's been disowned for her defiance, the pampered socialite takes her destiny in her own hands. Determined to show her father what a capable a woman she is - without his help or interference - she signs up to be a mail-order bride, totally prepared to give up all the luxuries of her previous life.

I just love Carolyn Fyffe stories, each is well written, clean, sweet and engaging. Kathryn is another great mail order bride story. This is a stand alone story that does have characters from previous books. (If you haven't read those, you should.)

Kathryn, taking charge of her life, chooses her own destiny. She becomes a mail order bride. But, as I have come to expect from this author, things are not always so simple. Kathryn has her share of twists and turns, but all comes together for a happy ending!

Mail-order-bride-to-be Heather Stanford dreads the day the matron of the St. Louis bridal agency finds her a husband and sends her west. Heather actually has no desire to marry; she just wants to free her struggling family from the financial burden of another mouth to feed. Still, she holds true to her plan when the fateful day arrives and Mrs. Seymour sings the praises of her prospective groom.

I love sweet historical romance stories. Especially mail order bride stories. This story has some great unexpected twists in the plot. The ending was happy but I wanted a bit more. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet (clean) entertaining story.

If you could sum up Mail-Order Brides of the West, Book 4: Lina in three words, what would they be?

Lina's story kept me hooked till the end. Lina is a loving gal that anyone would love to have as a friend. There is more sorrow in this book than the other books of this series. It is still a sweet book, with a happy ending.

Any additional comments?

I loved the narrator of this book. I don't usually listen to audio books, preferring to read, I finished this book in a day. It certainly made the house work more enjoyable.

What made the experience of listening to Montana Dawn the most enjoyable?

Montana Dawn is a story that has stayed with me. I read and listened to this story more than 2 months ago and I still remember the story and characters. I liked the sweet story with a happy ending. I am eager to read / listen to more books in this series.
