Publisher's Summary

As if he doesn't have enough to handle between running outlaws out of Cheyenne, keeping his brothers out of trouble, and avenging his father's death, Sheriff Sawyer McCade's meddling mother just dumped a mysterious mail-order bride on his doorstep. One woman can be more trouble than a band of renegades, and while this one has him all stirred up, he'd rather get to the bottom of the story she isn't telling.

Rose Parker had it all - until a web of danger and deceit sends her running to Cheyenne posing as a mail-order bride. Escaping the evils of New York seems sensible until she meets the unsuspecting sheriff who didn't ask for her, has no intention of marrying her, and won't rest until he uncovers her secret and sends her back home.

Loved it

I’ve listened to the audio book. Love it. It’s a great story that shows how preserves can prevail. Sawyer waited for the right time to avenge his fathers death and kept ahold of his younger brothers

I love this story.

Sawyer's Rose is a story with secrets, surprises, and happy endings. Ms. Turner has filled the story with details that gives the story a life of its own. I felt I became a part of the family as the story played out. The surprises were indeed a surprise. So many times with mail order bride books, one can outline the story by the end of the first chapter. Not so with Sawyer's Rose. Many times, I thought to myself "I didn't see that coming." I recommend the book and the audible.

Great story

I was given a copy of this story for an honest review.

While I love a good historical romance, I wasn't sure about this one when I first started listening (audiobook version) to it. The narrator had me on the fence in the beginning. He has a very low, gruff speaking voice, so I wasn't sure how he was going to do when it came to the variety of character voices (speaking differently for each character), especially for the females. There wasn't too much deviation between the male characters (the males pretty much sounded the same) and then with the females (again, the females pretty much sounded the same), but his voice sort of grew on me, I guess you could say. Thankfully, I wasn't too distracted by his voice when it came to the story, unlike some audiobooks I've recently attempted to listen to.

The only area of the story I question was at the beginning when Rose arrived at the station. She's described as wearing a gown/dress in which her cleavage was on displayed, basically. Now...I've read plenty of historical novels and watched plenty of historical movies/tv shows. Females during that time period had a specific gown/dress they would wear when traveling, hence, it was called a traveling gown. This gown usually involved the front part covering up to the neck, i.e. no boobies on display.

Other than that, I really enjoyed this story and the narrator did alright. On to book 2.

An Exciting Read

Would you consider the audio edition of Sawyer's Rose to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the book, opting to listen instead. Glad I did-love the narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

The story touched on a subject not usually discussed for that time period. (Not leaving a spoiler.)

What about Dawson McBride’s performance did you like?

Love, Love, Love this narrator-he has that Sam Elliot voice. Perfect for the western genre.

Any additional comments?

This is a wonderful first book in this series. Can't wait for the rest.

I really enjoyed this story

Where does Sawyer's Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is among some of the best. I loved the reader's 'whiskey voice' but he was just a little too laid-back for me (I listen while I drive to work and - I tend to be rushed when I'm driving - I kept thinking "Hurry up, Man!") so I set the speed to 1.2 and that was PERFECT

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably Sawyer was my favorite, though I really enjoyed Rose's character. I liked how the author had them FINALLY come together.

Which character – as performed by Dawson McBride – was your favorite?

Probably Sawyer. That whiskey-voice Mr McBride has is awfully soothing...

when the voice fits the part

I mostly listen to erotic romance. but sometimes I need a book to clean up my minde. And there is nothing better then a historic romance to do this.
it only gets better when it is a cowboy historic romance. damn this is a good one. And I have to say what a voice. it really fits the part of a good cowboy book.
such a plesure.

Sawyers Rose

Very well narrated keeps the listener interested with the twists and turns of the plot. I very much enjoyed the story line and it seemed to be very historically correct. Kim did an exceptional job with this audiobook and look forward to listening to more of her work on the future

A Lovely listen

I enjoyed this historical, western romance. There was plenty of action and suspense interspersed throughout the whole story so there was never a dull moment.
The romance was sweet and developed very naturally.
My initial reservations about the narrator were quickly put aside as I got into the story. I found the performances of the male and female characters to be very good. I could really picture and hear the cowboys he was portraying. It sounded very authentic. The narrator's voice was very deep but it was softened when various characters spoke. I thought he did a very good job.
This was an entertaining story and I will enjoy listening to book two.
