Publisher's Summary

The well-educated daughter of a lawyer, Trudy Bauer, arrives at the St. Louis based Mail-Order Brides of the West agency full of excitement for an adventure of a lifetime. She befriends the agency's maid, Evie Davenport, and the two form a strong and lasting friendship. They vow to stay in contact through letters when Evie takes hold of her destiny and arranges a marriage on the sly. Each brave young woman is ready to face whatever an unknown groom and life in Montana can throw her way.

In Fyffe's Novel, house servant Evie Davenport travels by stagecoach to Y Knot, Montana in a McCutcheon Family Novel.

Through their correspondence, the friends keep each other abreast of their hardships, trials and tribulations - some of heartbreak, some of love.

Delightful Sweet Western Romance

If you could sum up Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3 in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful, touching outstanding read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3?

The cat and mouse dance of reading each other wrong. The touching love between two people who grew to love each other. The touching love Evie had for Chance's half breed son was just so touching. Who wouldn't fall in love with a women like this who could love a child that most women would turn their back on.

Which character – as performed by Lara Asmundson – was your favorite?

This is a hard question to answer since I have listen to a few audios by Lara. Her many different voices bring so much to her story telling that is so touching. In this one I would have to say Evie. She was a touching character who just wanted a family and went for what she wanted not knowing if things would work out.

Who was the most memorable character of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3 and why?

Chance with his love and worried whether some other man had Evie's love and he was losing her before he even really had her.

Any additional comments?

Like all the Mail-order brides in this series this was a very touching story of two people wanting so much and not sure if they made the right choices. Finding love only to not know if the other felt the same. So many secretes hidden only to wonder if the other wanted out.

Chance knowing his son needed a mother but afraid no women would take on his half breed son. He didn't ask for anything, didn't feel he had the right to. All he wanted was someone to love his son, he didn't care if she was pretty, or interested in sexual things just wanted someone who would take and love his son as he did.

Evie being from a lower class of life never thought she would have a family. When she took the letter that was meant for another she knew this was the family she wanted as her own. She hid a lot from the start and had a lot she needed to learn but was willing to do so if it meant she could have a family. She took to Chances son from the start as he did to her. She stole Chances heart when he saw her holding his son and loving him as he was her own.

This was a very touching story with so many emotions that you wanted to just cry as misunderstanding kept them apart. It tore your heart and you just wanted to hit their heads together to make them see how wrong they were.

It is always a pleasure listening to Lara Asmundson she bring so much to the story. I could listen to her all day. She puts just the right about of emotion in to her voice. She is one of the few narrators that doesn't sound robotic when she reads in her own voice. When you see her name on an audio you know it is going to be an outstanding listen. I would listen to any story she narrated, I know she has an outstanding pleasures for me to listen to. I can't wait for her to take me on the journey of the rest of the Mail Order Brides.

The ladies that bring you the mail order brides series is a series you do not want to miss. They bring the west right to your door with compelling stories of women who are afraid but excited to start a new life in a new town with people they have never met. You feel each of their emotions and you feel all their pain along with their happiness.

Caroline Fyffe bring a lot to this series as she spins you a tale that will keep you wanting more. Her writing is easy to follow with her easy flow of words. She brings so much passion to this nice clean read of days gone by that you wish you were back in that time living the life and seeing the wonderful beautiful country she paints for you. She has an art of story telling that leaves you smiling and will break your heart. Her humor is outstanding and she sorrow makes you want to cry. Lara bring the voice to the many different characters that keeps you coming back for more. You don't want to miss any of these outstanding reads.

The right letter.

Would you consider the audio edition of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3 to be better than the print version?

I don't think that it was better than the print version, but listening to the book made me "see" things in a different way than reading it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3?

Who was the most memorable character of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3 and why?

Mrs. Seymour, she cared for Evie's mother and continued to care for Evie after her mother died. Although Evie was afraid to tell Mrs. Seymour about the letters and her plans to travel west as a Mail-Order Bride, Mrs. Seymour still cared enough about Evie to travel to Montana to be sure that she was safe and happy.

Mail Order Brides Gets Luck in Love!

Would you consider the audio edition of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie (McCutcheon Family Series - Book 3) to be better than the print version?

I haven't seen any other version but I don't feel I missed anything. Listening is nice and Lara Asmundson makes it nice to hear the story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie (McCutcheon Family Series - Book 3)?

When he came racing after Evie on his horse when she was just going to the mailbox.

What about Lara Asmundson’s performance did you like?

I like Lara's narration because she actually makes it sould like Evie is reading me her story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Since I listened to 'Trudy' first I was fascinated that both authors seem to find it important for the med to build their wives a chicken coop. Of course in this case, he just doesn't want to eat anymore potatoes. Lol

Any additional comments?

I would reacommend this series to anyone fascinated with the idea of women with no apparent prospects in their own towns, setting themselves up to marry a stranger in the 'wild' west. It has endless possibilities and these authors have captured the heart of the idea.

A Delightful Continuation of the Mail-Order Brides

Evie is not supposed to be a mail-order bride, just serve them as they wait for their future husbands to claim them. She wants a husband and home of her own though, so one day she sneaks one of the letters from a potential husband and answers it on her own and then sneaks away to meet her future.

Chase looks forward to his new bride, but cannot bring himself to admit that he is not ready for her. He falls for this beautiful eastern woman but is not sure why a "rich" city girl would want to live in the wilds of Montana in the middle of nowhere.

Both have secrets that could tear them apart, but can they find that love just may overcome all that is hidden?

Evie was my favorite minor character in Debra Holland's Montana Sky Series. I really enjoyed this story. I wanted to find out what happened to Evie and Caroline Fyffe did an amazing job keeping the feel of Montana Sky, but also giving her own voice for this installment of The McCutcheon Family Series. Lara Asmundson did a great job continuing the stories of the mail-order brides of Montana.
