Lovely Story Line

While I enjoyed the story, the narrator left something to be desired. The way he read and the intimations if his voice made feel as if he were reading a bedtime story to a child.

Annie is having a hard time at her job so she decides to apply for a Mail Order Bride.

Coincidentally, the man that answers her letter, just happens to live near her friend's ranch.

Annie and Mackenzie made a good couple, he was patient and understanding, which

was just what Annie needed.

Overall, this was a good sweet romance.


Alan Taylor did really well with the narration, his voice was clear and calming.

A bride for Mackenzie

Overall review for Sun River Brides, books 2-5: Karla Gracey's Mail Order Bride series is a series of sweet romantic shortstories. The stories are very fast-paced and only told - not showed. In some of the books I didn't connect with the characters at all. You won't get much background stories to the characters' lives and in some points you only get the point of view from one of them. These books are good entertainment if you need a short listen once in a while.

About 'A Bride for Mackenzie': In this story Mackenzie falls in love with Annie as soon as he sees her and the next day he asks her to marry him. A bit fast in my opinion! We'll never know how Annie feels about Mackenzie though. And I kind of laughed when I heard about their secrets. Forgivenes? You don't have to ask for forgiveness from someone you don't know. Acceptance? Yes, that's the word.

Alan Taylor did a very good job in narrating this series and has a very pleasant voice and made characters come to life. I'd love to hear him in other books as well.
