Start of this wonderful series

I was excited to start this new series and it was all I had hoped for with the wonderful writing of Kirsten Osbourne and narration of Amanda Friday.
Escaping being married to an older disgusting man that her father worked for, our heroine answers a mail order bride add after visiting the matchmaker. Not knowing what to expect, she is surprised at her attraction.
Great first in the series and cannot wait for more!

The original RUNAWAY BRIDE

This is another story about a girl being forced into a marriage without any choice of her own. The only thing that I really complain about is the "whiny" voice of the narrator on the AUDIBLE version.

Don't miss this series!

I love the romance of mail order bride stories! This is the first novel in my favorite of that type of series. Amanda Friday makes the character sound whiny, but that is appropriate since she is a young, coddled only child. I love the way the couple settles in together, each filling a void of sorts for the other. Though short, this is so enjoyable a romance, I highly recommend it.

Speed reading

Whew! I feel almost out of breath just listening to this. The story was short but sweet. However, the reading was done way too fast! It left me wondering if Amanda was related to a certain character in the book. She seemed never to slow down, as well. It certainly was not a relaxing experience.

fun storyline

I really enjoyed this opening into the Beckham bride series. It's short and sweet. I have bought all of them for my Kindle and it was fun to hear it out loud. Hope she keeps adding the rest of the series.
