Publisher's Summary

What happens when six English ladies are shipped off halfway across the world as mail order brides? Everything! Watch them go from a posh lifestyle in London to Clear Creek, a nothing of a town full of quirky characters, crazy livestock, and bumbling villains! Oh, and handsome grooms too!

Duncan Cooke, aka The Duke of Stantham, had a problem. He had a huge estate in England to manage, one not far from London, and it came with all the headaches one would expect with an estate in disarray. Including six unwed cousins, women no man would touch for fear of losing a limb, or worse. Strange things happened to all who tried to court them, so they were left unwed. But Duncan realized that his hometown of Clear Creek had exactly what he needed. Men! And so with the help of his brother's wife Sadie, he concocted a plan to send his cousins to Clear Creek as mail order brides! He just hoped the calamity that often followed them, didn't find its way across the sea as well.

The English Invade Clear Creek

If you could sum up August in three words, what would they be?

Charming. Funny. Entertaining.

What was one of the most memorable moments of August?

The animals in this story really steal the show. It's hard to pick between the spider on Penelope's dress or Clyde, the rooster, attacking everyone.

Have you listened to any of Michael Rahhal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Michael Rahhal is one of my favorite narrators. His work with Kit Morgan's books are by far my favorites. He is a master at giving each character a unique voice. I often feel like I'm listening to an ensemble cast rather than a single reader.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Jane Austen visits the Wild West.

Good read

This is another entertaining mail order bride book. The ending has an unusual hero who saves the girl. Narration is OK.
