Publisher's Summary

Men are optional. That's the credo Emma Chandler's suffragette aunts preached and why she started a successful women's colony in Harper's Station, Texas. But when an unknown assailant tries repeatedly to drive them out, Emma admits they might need a man after all. A man who can fight - and she knows just the one.

Malachi Shaw finally earned the respect he craved by becoming an explosives expert for the railroad. Yet when Emma's plea arrives, he bolts to Harper's Station to repay the girl who once saved his life. Only she's not a girl any longer. She's a woman with a mind of her own and a smile that makes a man imagine a future he doesn't deserve. As the danger intensifies, old feelings grow and deepen, but Emma and Mal will need more than love to survive.

excellent

No foul language. Good morals and great suspense. The narrator kept all the voices distinct and inflections very well done.

No Other Will Do: Ladies of Harper's Station #1

I love the concept of a female colony where women can seek sanctuary and build a new life. I am looking forward to more audio-books in this series.

I really enjoyed this narrator and hope that she is used for future audio-books.

A very good book with an excellent message

Ahhhh <3 <3
Karen Witemeyer can't disappoint me with her books, it's not even possible, her books are so adorable my heart can't even handle all that cuteness
This book was so powerful and it got a great message .. a message I wish if more books would relay it to the readers ' being a feminist doesn't mean you hate men '
being a strong woman doesn't mean that you have to see men as creatures of evil .. they have their own issues as much as women do, if we work together as a team we will prosper :))
a very fine book by a very fine author .. most recommended

The Narration was very good and it really kept me in contact with the story .. read it you won'r regret it :)

Excellent writing! No Other Will Do:

What made the experience of listening to No Other Will Do the most enjoyable?

I love Karen Witemeyer's writing style. Engaging story, memorable characters, humor, and of course the romance.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think the hero Malachi Shaw is my favorite character. I like his sense of loyalty to Emma and the Aunts. He is stubborn but lovable, able to keep calm in high-stress situations. He shows respect, the kind he didn't get at their age, to the younger men and boys that he works with, particularly Andrew, a young boy devoted to Malachi. He learns that he is not alone and that he can love and be loved.
I also really liked Aunt Bertie. She was the easy going Aunt until she wanted something. She showed a little bit of spunk when necessary!

What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I liked Johanna Parker's narration. She brought just the right dramatic feel. I do sometimes wish Audible would have male and female narrators for these books. While Johanna did a good job with the male voices they were very similar.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I felt moved when Malachi picked up Flora and carried her back toward the town. Despite what she had done. Despite his desire to save Emma. He remained calm and just put one foot in front of the other.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed listening to No Other Will Do. There were a few times where a sentence or two were repeated. That was a bit distracting. Otherwise, it is a great story. I look forward to more stories from the Ladies of Haper's Station.

Good overall story

Too drawn out with in-depth, unspoken thoughts of desire for each other. Enjoyed the story when the plot continued.

Not My Cup of Tea

I don't understand the good ratings...I barely made it through this book! I am spoiled by really great writing, I think. I am not eligible for a refund on this book as I purchased it as an audible narration as companion to a kindle version. If I could have been refunded, I would have asked for one! I literally skipped through the last several chapters of the book as I just couldn't bear to listen to such a contrived story and breathy narration. A few of the other books in the series have popped up on my recommended list. Now I know I would not be interested!
