Publisher's Summary

Unexpectedly homeless, unwed mother Sarah Johnson has few options. They could go live with her cousin William, but Sara believes there's something untoward about his offer and it leaves her feeling uncomfortable. She's qualified to be a governess, but no one will have her because she wasn't married when she had her precious MaryAnn. Matchmaker & Co could be her salvation as mail-order-bride to Mr. John Atwood.

Single father John Atwood is raising his daughter the best he can in the wilds of the Colorado Territory, but knows he needs help. No woman he knows wants to take on the raising of his daughter who hasn't spoken since she saw her mother brutally murdered during a bank robbery. Can Sarah, John, and their two daughters overcome their pasts and find happiness together?

A New Beginning

Sara Johnson's aunt died leaving her and her five year old daughter homeless. Unable to find a job, Sarah decides to apply at Matchmaker & Co., as a Mail-Order Bride. John Atwood, a Colorado rancher, sends to Matchmaker & Co for a bride. His wife had been killed years earlier, and he wants a wife for himself and a mother for his seven year old daughter, who had not spoken since her mother's death. This is a very good book and I enjoyed listening to it and I believe you will too.

Capital Bride: Book 1

I enjoyed this story. It flows nicely, with just enough Sparks to keep me intrigued to the last chapter. I recommend this book.

Same old same old!

Predictive. Have read the same story line over and over. Reader voices not well done.

Painful...couldn't finish

I really wanted to like this book, I like the premise, it could have been a great light read/listen. However the writing is horrible, truly horrible, it was awkward. I wasn't able to finish the book.

Great Book.

This romantic western mail-order bride story has some really interesting twists & turns. It holds your interest very well throughout the entire book.
I won't give away any secrets to spoil your own imaginings. You will have to read or hear it for yourself. I'm siure you will enjoy this wonderful book.

Lovely story

I enjoyed listening to Capital Bride. The plot is great and I loved the characters. The little girls are adorable. The narrator did a credible job, for the most part, though, at times, she was a bit over dramatic. Happy reading!

Capital Bride

Very predictable in that they they got married he was a ranch owner had plenty of men to run the ranch.
The little girls were friends from the start. The mail harder bride got shot by someone she thought of as a brother.
Her husband realised how much he loved her. Shot the other one she had a son and lived happy ever after
