Publisher's Summary

The Surprise Brides: One determined mama, four reluctant brothers, four mail order brides. Meet Jamie, Caleb, Gideon and Ethan.

As the local preacher, Gideon Fraser often talks about the many virtues of a good marriage, but that doesn't mean he has the slightest inclination of claiming a bride of his own. No, he's been burned before, by greedy women who only want the prestige and money the Fraser family name can provide. When his mother's devious matchmaking results in his unexpected wedding, Gideon looks at the beautiful face of the woman who has sworn to be his and wants nothing to do with her. But Gideon is in danger of losing his heart until he discovers the truth. His new wife lied to him about everything.

Ruby Haller needed a husband and fast. A treacherous man promised her the world, took her virginity, and left her without a father for her unborn child. When her father, the town minister, found out she was expecting a child, he offered her hand in marriage to the meanest man in town. Becoming a mail-order-bride appeared to be a safer choice. But instead of a rancher, she ends up the wife of a stubborn, bull-headed preacher and he's none too pleased when he discovers her duplicity. Worse? The local town beauty, who had been courting him for years, is determined to make her life a living hell.

But Angel Springs, Colorado is a small town that can inspire big dreams. It's nearly Christmas, and as these two hearts heal, a holiday miracle just might be within reach.

Awesome

Cynthia out did herself. Gideon's story is a great one in this series. They both learned about trust and how love can conquer all.

I love Cynthia Woolf!

I always enjoy a Cynthia Woolf book and Gideon is one of my favorites. All the books in the Surprise Brides series are good, quick reads and I recommend each one. Gideon is the only one in audio book format though.

Lia Frederick does a great job narrating and brings the characters to life. You know each character by how she changes her voice and when Ruby is thinking, you can hear the difference from her talking voice.

Gideon and Ruby, Was His Mother Right?

Gideon's mother was tired of her sons waiting to marry, so she did what she had to do. What was that?

Ruby has a huge secret, what can it be? Even Gideon has a secret he hasn't shared with Ruby. What is it.

I highly recommend this amazing Audiobook to everyone. It is most interesting and I loved it. I know you will too.

The narrator Lia Frederick did another wonderful job reading this Audiobook. I enjoy listening to her read to me. I am sure you will enjoy her too.
