Publisher's summary

An earthquake shook more than the ground in Silverpines, Oregon.

A silver-mine cave-in and lumber-camp mudslide caused a shortage of young men in town. Women were saddled with running businesses and ranches alone. Laura Bennett, owner of White Oaks ranch, sends for a mail-order husband.

Max Winters lost the love of his life, Catherine, to another man, so he decides to answer Laura's ad. Since his true love was gone, he'd settle for a good partnership and a new life. He travels to Silverpines and is met with a beautiful bride and her adorable daughter, but also many trials and setbacks.

Will they overcome the tribulations and truly fall in love even after Catherine shows up as a widow?

A light period romance

Wanted Horse Breeder is a light period romance that is fun to read or listen to. The story is a little silly at times, but it is sweet with nothing too heavy to drag it down. It has a certain innocence that is refreshing. Contains light sexual content.

The reader of the audiobook does a nice job bringing it to life.

I received a complementary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

A Fabulous Story!

This story pulled me in very quickly and I ended up listening to it all in one sitting. The plot moved quickly and was believable. Laura's husband died in a mining accident and she needed help running her horse breeding operation. She was advised to advertise for a mail-order husband. Max responded and they married quickly. Events transpire and it seems like everything is stacked against them. There are some glimpses of hope throughout as situations get dealt with until something happens that threatens to end their marriage forever.
This story is highly recommended from beginning to end. The narrator was excellent and let the story come through perfectly.

Wanted: Horse Breeder

I love a good clean romance and Barbara Goss never disappoints. This is such a sweet story involving a mail order husband! There are a few trials and tribulations that give just enough tension... will the tension be enough to break Laura and Max apart, or will they both find what they’re looking for?

Entertaining

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. this is another very entertaining, sweet western mail order romance with a twist. This time it is a mail order husband. I loved the little plot twists incorporated into the story. The thief passing himself off as a minister, the brother coming to town with the husband's inheritance just at the time when they really need it. I especially love how God is woven into the story. There is a full romance including love making without going into explicit details. the story is well thought out and the narrator got the voices just right including the little girl. Although for a 4-year-old she had quite an imagination. I wish the other parts of the series were available on audio. My eyesight is failing and I can't read as many books but I listen to two or three a day. Listening allows me to get my other work done while still getting my reading in. Can't wait for other books by Ms. Goss.

Great Read

Wanted: Horse Breeder (Silverpines #2) was a great read by Barbara Goss. Due to an earthquake in April 1899, there was a mine cave-in that caused many deaths and injuries. Laura is looking for a husband who can also breed horses. Max is looking to leave his hometown and finds the perfect solution with Laura. I cant wait to read more by Barbara Goss.

Welcome to Oregon!

In the wake of an earthquake which devastated the town and killed the majority of the town's men in a series of disasters, women are left widowed and on their own. The dulcet tones of narrator Courtney Holly bring our characters to life as Laura, not quite grieving her childhood friend/late husband who had become almost a stranger, copes with trying to run a horse ranch and breeding operation for which she has few skills and no training. One solution? A Mail Order Groom! The expected hindrances to true love manifest, although not always in the expected manner, as flim-flam artists and con men try to take advantage of the chaos in the recovering town. Author Barbara Goss manages complex plots while presenting plausible people behaving believably; her tales are consistently entertaining.

Second chancea

I loved this book. Laura's husband was killed and she needed someone to breed horses. She sent for a mail order husband. Laura had a four year old daughter who was having a hard time with the loss of her husband. Strong characters and great story of finding love.I was given a copy and this is my honest review.

Perfect!

(Smile) loved this story and loved the narration!
What is clearly shown is that it is human to err and that we are not at all perfect, but, having messed up, if one takes responsibility for our deeds or lack of them, then life and love can adjust for the betterment of all concerned.
This is what both Laura and Max had to find out and they quickly learned from their mistakes. I loved their faith, honesty and beliefs.
Also, you can't help but love Laura's 4-year o,d daughter. She is just sooo very cute.
Altogether, a beautiful, clean western romance with a happily every after and tI am happy to recommend it.
I listened to the audiobook version and my review above is unbiased and given voluntarily.
