Publisher's Summary

An Exciting, Thrilling, Complete Mail Order Bride Box Set 

Book 1 - A Montana Bride

Sarah was sick of living with her parents; her restrictive lifestyle didn’t allow her to see the world outside of their farm. She longed for more; to meet new people, to see new things; to love. 

She couldn’t take it anymore. 

In an attempt to break free from her suppression, she puts her picture into a magazine for mail-order brides. Joel seems like the perfect match for her; he doesn’t want anything more than companionship. 

However, when friendship quickly transitions into something much more will their arrangement ruin something that could have been so special? 

Book 2 - A Southern Bride

Mary-Ellen is about to celebrate her 20th birthday party. Living with her uncle after the death of her parents has proved to be hard, and the prospect of a birthday party is exhilarating. Her uncle makes her work hard, and Sundays are the only day she has off. 

But one Sunday, he drops a bombshell. To make more money, he has sold her as a mail order bride to a rich cowboy. Before no time at all, Mary finds herself shifting her belongings and on route to meet her new husband. 

Excited about leaving behind her uncle but anxious about stepping into the unknown. 

Book 3 - A Utah Bride

Mary Fowler runs from a tragic past right into the flames of a very real fire. 

When a fire burns the textile company to the ground, she is left jobless and quickly running out of money. Left with no choice, she offers herself as a mail order bride. 

When Charles Bradford, a wealthy rancher in search of a bride approaches her, she doesn’t know what do. 

One thing is for sure, it’s about to get a lot more interesting on the ranch! 

Book 4 - A Southern Sweetheart

Charming, intelligent, and defiant - the three words that best describe Jessie Prosper. Having grown up around a broken marriage littered with arguments and fights, she had no plan to go down the same route. 

However, things were about to change drastically for her. 

Without speaking a word to Jessie, her father arranged her marriage. Shortly after, she found herself on her way to a foreign city to meet a stranger she would soon call her husband. 

Warning: Listeners should be 18 or over due to mature content and language.

Montana Bride:
A rather far fetched historical mail-order bride story. The far fetched part starts with the parents not allowing Sarah to meet others. I was disappointed that chapter 3, a pivotal section of the story, was missing from the Audible edition.

Overall the story was good. The narrator, Zura Johnson, did a great job. A little break from reality.


A Southern Bride:
Overall a good quick story. Nothing outstanding but a diversion for relaxing mindless afternoon. Bridget Bordeaux did a good job narrating with the exception of the wedding which she sped through.


A Utah Bride:
This story is a puzzlement. First narrator Bridget Bordeaux dida good job with some of the narration. However, the majority was done so fast it was difficult to understand what was happening. Granted sometimes it needs to be sped up but not to the point of galloping through the scenes. I almost went back to before we even got to the mail-order part to listen again. Because of this my judgement of the story may be biased. The overall story was good. I was confused by Mary & Charles marriage. Their feelings and why the marry in the first place.

I will probably go back and listen again to see if I get a clearer idea.


A Southern Sweetheart:
As far as a short historical fiction novella it is good. Not much in the story is true to history but the characterization is good. The characters are likeable and relatable. I liked how the couple talked and then decided to make a life together.

This is a clean, bedroom doors closed, no swaring and no violence story.

Bridget Bordeaux did a excellent job narrating. This is the best I have heard from her.

I recieved a free Audible copy of these stories in exchange for a honest review.
