A little bit of everything in this story

5 stars
Can a lawyer pull off a proxy bride and adopted two siblings as a ready made family? Having his new bride thinking the children are really his? Can he pull it off not only with her but to get the state of Kansas to vote him into Senate?
The author adds in the importance of allowing God as your Savior. So through trying to find the new person he has become, it also included a change in attitude toward family and God. Then everything comes into place.
A murder mystery throughout the book keeps you guessing as to who really did the murder.
A wonderfully written book. I enjoyed every moment of it.
I did listen to it and the man did an ok job. I’ve heard him before and have gotten used to him. At first it seemed awkward to have a man read for a woman, but he does do a good job

Another Barbara Goss Masterpiece

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. Again Barbara Goss delivers an excellent great story that will fill your heart. Cameron wants to run for the State Senate and is told his chances are better if he has a family. He orders a mail-order bride and marries her by proxy and in the mean time adopts two orphans. Hannah enters this marriage unaware of the lies that Cameron has told her. The author provided a well rounded story that keeps your interest from beginning to end. It is great to see how God works in their marriage. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters, their personalities and the overall story.

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.

What a great romance

I have yet to read a book by Barbara Goss, But I didn’t love! This one is no exception. When Marries Cameron by proxy she is determined to be a good wife, but how can you be a good wife to a lying, lowdown sidewinder? She doesn’t know, but what she doesn’t know if she loves “his“ girls and what’s the stay at least for their sake. I know this is a little summary in the book has so much more to it, but it’s hard to do it justice when it is so so good! I highly recommend this book and thought the narrator J Scott Bennett did a great job as always. If you love Christian historical westerns you’ll love this book. Please forgive any grammatical or punctuational errors as I am blind and dictate my review but all opinions are my own.

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.
