Love and intrigue

The marriage was one of convenience to both Hanna and Cameron. However, they both had very different reasons to wed. Cameron was wanting to appear as a family man to win an election. He was willing to lie to get achieve his goals. Hanna had recently lost her job and had to sell her home to pay the back taxes. She was going to have to move and marriage seemed a good option.
Hannah didn’t expect to be mothering two small children. Worse yet she determines her husband has lied about their origins.
This story was about learning to trust, learning to forgive, and learning to love. There was also a bit of a mystery to solve.

The spinster finds love

Cameron is a bored lawyer who longs to become a politician and is willing to deceive to get what he wants. Unfortunately, his mail-order bride, Hannah, is a religious sort who despises lies. Cameron will do anything to win, even attend church with his bride and newly-acquired children. How long can he continue lying to her? And will she leave him when she discovers the truth?

At the same time, there’s a murder mystery in this small town. The murderer has not been caught and is most likely living among the townspeople. When Hannah takes it upon herself to unravel the mystery of the murder case, Cameron joins his wife in the investigation to help keep her safe.

This is an enjoyable and sweet, short romance. The characters are well developed and the story moves along nicely.

A Bride for Cameron

This is an excellent book. It has a murder mystery in it also. Cameron want to become senator and thinks his chances will be better if he has a family. He gets married by proxy. He tells her a lot of lies that comes out in the end. He could not have picked a better wife. Barbara Goss wrote another great book. Scott Bennett did an excellent job narrating this book. I was giving a free copy of this book but that had no influence on my review.

Telling the Truth

I enjoyed listening to this book. Narration was good. Hannah needs to start her life over and decides to marry Cameron to accomplish it. She marries by proxy and heads to Kansas. She thought life would be better, but her new husband is not being truthful. You cannot start a marriage with lies. She can't leave, as she loves the children already. What can she do now. Follow her journey with faith in God to help her along the way.
I was given a copy of the book by the author for an honest review.

A sweet story

I enjoyed this story. I found it uplifting, sweet and a story that kept me listening. The narrator did a good job as well. My only critique would be to add more to it to make it a little more in depth and longer. Overall I would enjoy this story again and recommend it to others! I received a free copy of this book. Any opinions towards this book are purely my own views.

This story makes you sit back and say, "Ahh!"

The Proxy Bride Series is a sweet Christian series that takes you back in time to when people spent their evenings sitting on the porch in rocking chairs and sipping hand squeezed lemonade. There is just something about the stories that makes you sit back and say, "Ahh!".

The story of Cameron and Hannah starts out on the deceptive side. Cameron has decided to run for office and is told his chances are better if he has a family. Enter the mail-order bride concept and the orphan train. Soon he has his family. Hannah is a godly woman and has no idea what Cameron has done. Once Cameron accompanies her to church, he decides he can't keep the truth from her anymore. Will he lose everything he now holds dear?

The narration by J. Scott Bennett was fantastic! What a great voice for a western story.

I was gifted a copy of this audiobook. All thoughts are my own.

Christian Historical Romance

Such a cute story premise! Adding a murder mystery was a nice touch. I'm confused how Cameron could act like he was married with children, yet no one would wonder why they had never met his wife and children, or even knew he had a wife and children!
Scott does his usual excellent work narrating this unique story.

Deceptive Groom

Cameron wants to be a senator, apparently at any cost. He is told he will have a better chance with a family, so he advertises for a mail order bride and he adopts two orphans. When Hannah, his proxy bride arrives she assumes the children are his. When she finds how deceptive Cameron has been she informs him that as a Christian woman she will not lie for him. Cameron finally see his family as more than a means to an end and embraces them. Another great job by Barb Goss and J Scott Bennett!

Love those kids!

Barbara Goss does it again. She clears my mind and hands me a story that is so worth the listen. Cameron has his sights on being in the senate, but he needs to have a family for his image. What better way than by proxy bride? But wait, he needs children too! The orphan train is a good place to get a couple, but he's not telling his new bride they are adopted. Now when Hannah comes to live with him, the basis of their marriage is set on lies that just keep growing. Can their marriage last? Will she be able to forgive him? And what will happen to the children? This is one of those stories that pulls you in and invests your heart. The relationship between Hannah and the kids is priceless, and their growth under her care just makes you love her. Cameron is harder to like for obvious reasons. But Hannah's faith and influence turned my opinion around. It's a wonderful listen and the kids just stole my heart!

J Scott Bennett is just so perfect for this series. Every time I hear his voice, the stories come alive. He has a vast array of voices, able to give me the adults and turn the scene around and give me a 2 and 5 year old in realistic voices. Always a pleasure to give him a listen.

Lies vs Truth!

Oh, I enjoyed this so much more the second time around in the audiobook version.
J. Scott Bennett read this story so beautifully that it was like watching a great movie of it giving me full colour with audio.
I originally read the book earlier this year and this is what I wrote about it:
"What is it with certain people that they feel the need to blatently lie in order to get what they want? I can never fully understand this mentality because in every instance when this happens I see the person constantly having to 'look over his or her shoulder' to make sure no one has found out the truth. It's actually a very sad way to live life that way!
"Enough of my philosophising and on with my review.
"I mentioned my thoughts on lying because that is exactly what Cameron starts out doing and he eventually finds himself wondering whether in fact it would be better to come clean to his new wife or not or would he lose everything he was trying to achieve by doing so.
"This concept was very cleverly written into the story with a very pleasing solution and I am happy to say, a happy ever after ending for four really interesting and most endearing characters.
"The story was such that I just had to keep reading to find out what would in fact happen and whether Cameron could find a way to resolve the mess he was making of his marriage to a fabulous lady."
My review above is based on my own personal thoughts and ideas on this story and it is given voluntarily after first reading an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) of the book and now listening to the audiobook version.
