Publisher's Summary

Come along for the ride to meet feisty Boston city girls who know what they want, and rugged Montana men who just need to be loved. It's 1900, and things are changing fast in sleepy Sun River. As the town begins to expand, its inhabitants are getting restless, looking for love and adventure.

Why would an accomplished governess respond to an advertisement in the Matrimonial Times? Myra Gilbert had never considered such a thing, but something has awoken within her and she is determined to take her chance on love.

Carlton Green claimed his lands, and now has the deeds in his grasp. But something is missing in his life. Will his quest to find love fill that hole, or is there something from his past that could change everything and leave him with nothing?

Sweet Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Mail Order Bride - A Bride for Carlton to be better than the print version?

I truly enjoyed the performance and was able to listen while I worked. For this book, I enjoyed each equally.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Carlton showed up at Myra's home. I enjoyed the description of Carlton through Myra's eyes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Normally I would have probably listened to the whole in one sitting but I started too late in the day.

Any additional comments?

The story is a sweet and clean tale of Myra finding her love though an advertisement. The story shared the doubts of both the man and woman about their worth as a husband and wife. It has a happy ending and I encourage to take time to read or listen to the story.

My Musings

Hmm, this story was just underdeveloped. The characters lack any real depth. Now, the narrator did an excellent job, and I would listen to him again. Happy reading!

Nice Mail Order Bride; Good New Series

A Bride for Carlton was a great beginning for the Sun River Brides series. I liked the characters and the setting. The story was neat and clean with a fulfilling ending. Overall, this was a very relaxing and enjoyable listen. I like calling these cozies as they make me feel comfy and cozy.

Alan Taylor's narration was great. He had a smooth consistent tone and was definitely easy on my ears. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him read this short story. He did a wonderful job.

Lots of Potential

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was a quick fun listen. Short and to the point.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I did like the way the ending wrapped things up and didn't leave you to wonder what would happen or why.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I thought he did great on the male narration, however the female part seemed very robotic.

Do you think Mail Order Bride - A Bride for Carlton needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

The first half of the book was great, but the second half seemed rushed. It would be nice to have a prequel to this book.

Any additional comments?

I would try this author again. The book had alot of potential to be great.
