Publisher's Summary

Catherine Pinkiss is a chambermaid. Her employers are ungrateful and expect too much of all their employees. Knowing that only she can change her life, she takes a chance and replies to an advertisement in the Matrimonial Times. She knows she could be risking her very life, but when a handsome man arrives on her doorstep, will she regret the actions she has taken?

Dylan Jones believes that love will never find him again. Left alone to bring up his son after the tragic loss of his first wife, he knows that happiness is fleeting. He knows he has already been blessed, growing up to wealth and privilege and having found the one woman who could make his heart sing. But Kyle needs a mother, and he needs companionship, as he tries to build a new life away from everything he once knew. He is not looking for anything more, but will he find out that sometimes we don't get quite what we might think we are looking for?

Great start to this series!

A new spin on this Mail Order Bride book found me smiling right through. This is the first of a new series and Karla Gracey gave it a little twist. Catherine is a maid and begins her correspondence with Dylan, a widower living in Texas. Dylan is looking for companionship for himself, but more importantly a woman who will love his son as her own. As their letters go back and forth, their feelings grow, but as we all know, text is not always the easiest way of communication. This to me is where the surprise comes in. Arriving at her house, Catherine is shocked to find Dylan there ready to take her to dinner! Not your usual ticket to Texas to see if you suit! He came to her! I love this story, it is so fun and heart warming, and Dylan's son is so adorable. This is a great start to this series!

J Scott Bennett is the narrator of this historical western. He is so perfect for a series like this, his voice and cadence lend a soothing tone to your ears and really make the story enjoyable.

Catherine Finds Love

Mail Order Bride - Catherine Finds Love
By: Karla Gracey

A short sweet clean western historical mail order bride fiction. Dylan A widower advertises for a bride to be a mother to his three year old son. Catherine a chamber maid back east wishes for a different life. Letters back and forth begin what maybe a real romance if Dylan can move past his late wife's memory. The listener will be transported into the past without time travel. A good light listen!


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. J. Scott Bennett is enjoyable to listen to as he narrates this tale.

Sweet story

This was a sweet short story. If you want a quick and easy listen this book is for you. It is very sweet and of course it has an HEA. I have not read or listened to this author before but I am sure to listen and or read more of her books. The narrator was great too. They were easy to listen to. I am sure to listen to more books read by them as well.

Lovely story!

This is a well written story with some very emotional sections and witty ones too. I loved the impromptu appearance of the groom to be - such a lovely surprise and as for his proposal - well it had me in happy tears. The characters are nicely formed with interesting personalities. I liked that a child was also written in as well as the love that both his father and future mother were able to show him. I always enjoy J. Scott Bennett's narrations and this one was not an exception. He helps bring the book to life with his many and varied voices and I love this about him. For an easy, very enjoyable, quick read or listen I would recommend this book or audio. I requested and listened to the audiobook version and my review above is voluntary and unbiased.

Catherine finds Love

A wonderful story of love that grows over months of corresponding to each other.

J. Scott Bennett, as always, has done an excellent job of narrating. I can't imagine anyone else that could do this much justice to Karla Gracey's audibles.

I received this audible free and I'm more than happy to give my honest unbiased review

Catherine finds love

Predictable, as in most of these books. I loved the ending that included Dylan's son in the wedding
