Publisher's Summary

After her father passes away, Jodie Wines is lonely and overworked. Her stepmother, a vain and lazy woman, leaves Jodie to do everything. Jodie’s one consolation is that she still lives in her father’s house, her childhood home in Boston, in the town she loves. But when she discovers her stepmother’s plot to marry her off to an odious merchant, Jodie flees west to become a mail order bride.

Ainsley Milligan is rich. Living on the ranch he loves is fulfilling but isolating. After having his heart broken by a cheating, money-hungry woman, Ainsley fears trusting any woman. When his friend advises him to send for a mail order bride, he finally agrees. But he can’t take the chance of being conned again. He’ll have Jodie Wines prove her love to him, and only then will he tell her the truth of his wealth.

But things quickly get out of control, and Ainsley’s plan of secrets and mystery is now backfiring. The woman he’s come to love is leaving him, and it’s all his fault.

Save Me!

Save me from a monotonous performance!! The story was disjointed but it could have been much better with a different reader. I have no training for the theater, but I believe I could have given a much more interesting performance! The story skipped too many important details but I could have ignored that if the reader had not read in monotone and been quite boring.
