When rancher and single father Cam McBride finds a letter tucked in a strip of cloth tied to a tumbleweed, he is captivated by the mysterious author. Finding a second tumbleweed letter further pulls him under the lonely writer's spell. He needs a mother for his little boy and a wife to warm his bed. Could this mysterious woman fill his needs?
Sophie Flannigan is alone, scared, and on the run from a rogue Pinkerton agent. She spends her days as a scrub lady at Madame Dora's brothel and her nights writing notes to the four winds. Her life holds little hope until a small boy lays claim to her and his handsome father proposes an advantageous arrangement.
Can these three benefit from a marriage of convenience, or will a determined Pinkerton agent destroy their fragile, newly formed bond?
Wanting a quick read, and after reading Amazon's positive reviews, I took a chance on a new (to me) author and narrator. The story sounded cute, and perhaps would have been more entertaining with another narrator, but I found it lacking overall.
I watched the movie "Conagher" with Sam Elliott years ago, about a lonely widow who wrote letters and tied them to tumbleweeds, and enjoyed it, but "Tumbleweed Letters: Love Letters" fell flat. The narrator's voice was flat, for the most part, although she was able to change it for different characters...she gave a good performance for the child.
The title was also misleading, the letters were not love letters.
Sorry, but I cannot recommend it.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
NO ONE!!! The story was ok but the narration was soooo bad! She stinks! It was painful!
Has Tumbleweed Letters turned you off from other books in this genre?
How could the performance have been better?
If the narrator was more fluent and less choppy. Her voices for each character were ridiculous and sound read and not acted. It was just HORRIBLE
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story intrigued me...if the narration was so horrid I may have enjoyed the story
