Publisher's Summary

Bernice Caulder had been unlucky in love for as long as she can remember, and now that she was a mail-order bride, she wondered if her bad luck hadn't followed her from her home town of Independence, Oregon all the way to Nowhere, a tiny speck of a town in the Washington territory. Why else would her husband-to-be be having such a hard time making up his mind about her?

Warren Johnson had his life all planned out, and it didn't involve a wife any time soon. But when his grandfather orders him a mail-order bride (not to mention fails to tell Warren about it) his life is turned upside down. He didn't want a wife, didn't plan on a wife, and by golly, he was going to make sure he stuck to his life's schedule! But did fate have other plans?

Fascinating

Loved this book from beginning to end!! Loved how you catch up with some characters from other books. The story is both funny and romantic ar the same time.

A cutesy tale with ignorant characters

I finished the tale but it just didn't appeal, I bought another from the same author and narrator so I am holding out hope for a better story but I can't say I am optimistic.

A heartwarming and amusing romance!

If you could sum up A Mid-Summer's Mail-Order Bride in three words, what would they be?

A Mid-Summer's Mail-Order Bride continues the journey of many characters that we have come to know in the Holiday Mail Order Bride series. The characters are entertaining and well developed. The story line is fresh and mingles characters from previous books so you feel like the story continues where it left off. The plot moves along at a good pace. This is a sweet and delightful story that will captivate you and keep your attention from the beginning to the end.

What about Michael Rahhal’s performance did you like?

Michael Rahhal did a fantastic job on the narration. He really brought the characters to life. He did a great job with the different accents, especially the Irish accent. Sometimes his impersonations made me giggle. Every single time he said “uhh huh” I just have to laugh. You can hear the passion in his performance with the concise and clear speech while adding depth to the story.

Any additional comments?

Kit Morgan is one of my favorite authors. I know that when I pick up one of her books that I will not be disappointed. Even though this is part of a series, each book can be read as a stand-alone. I have read/listened to each book back to back. If you are looking for a good mail order bride series to start, then I recommend starting with the Holiday Mail Order Bride series. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming mail order bride romance.

Ummmm, no!

Would you try another book from Kit Morgan and/or Michael Rahhal?

Story is good I guess, but I am so put off by the narrator. I keep thinking about drag queens.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Rahhal?

NO! I guess I can take a womans voice playing a male but not a male playing a woman...it ruins the story. I have tried and tried to listen to it. He has a great voice, but I feel like since the main characters are all women, it should have been a woman.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Mid-Summer's Mail-Order Bride?

I just think having a town called no where is kinda lame.
