Publisher's Summary

Madeline loves her job working at the newspaper, even if it's under a pen name. What she doesn't love is the knowing glances from her neighbors, thanks to the awful man who turned her away. When she is given the assignment to write about mail order brides, she decides to take it one step farther and become one herself.

Nathaniel loves his homestead in the wilds of Idaho, and he's ready to start up his new business. The only problem is that there are few women in the area, and he hopes to find a wife. When his friends suggest he try finding a mail order bride, Nathaniel finds the fiery Madeline's application and sends off his letter.

While sparks fly between them, things on the ranch aren't quite as perfect. Winter is coming quickly, making it difficult to get the harvest in, and someone is starting fires throughout the valley. Will their troubles be too much for Madeline and Nathaniel to handle, or will their love be enough to create their happily ever after?

cute story

The story was cute, I liked the idea. If found it lacking in details though. She is a mail order bride and comes out and marries a stranger and there is no awkwardness or shyness or any problems really, they are just all of a sudden happily married and in love. Other than that I thought it was ok. Easy listening while I cleaned the house.

Sweet Mail Order Bride

I enjoyed this short but sweet mail order bride story. I really liked the unique storyline of Madeline working at a newspaper writing under a pen name. Madeline becomes a mail order bride to help with her assignment to write about them. I would have enjoyed a longer story, but this is perfect for an evening when you have a few hours.

not your typical mail order bride

Madeline becomes a mail order bride for a couple of reasons. Nathaniel longs for a wife and family. I really enjoyed how they just clicked and how their relationship slowly turned true love match. The narrator did a great job switching voices between the characters. It is a great book to listen too.
