Book Description

The Wild West was tamed, one man at a time...

Desperate for grandbabies and cursed with four wayward sons, Maggie Carson concocts a scheme to impersonate them in letters sent back east for mail order brides.

Rebecca Hart is the first ensnared, romanced by sweet words, poetry, and the promise of a new life. When she arrives in Topeka, she is eager to marry the man she thought she had come to admire, but the groom, Grant Carson, is nowhere to be found. It is his younger brother, Charlie, who greets her at the train station.

Charlie is appalled after discovering his mother’s deception, yet jealous that Rebecca is meant for his older brother, who, in his estimation, does not deserve her. Grant reluctantly makes an effort to romance Rebecca, but his heart is elsewhere, as he is involved with a married woman in town. Rebecca and Charlie find themselves thrown together often, and a friendship emerges. An unexpected kiss confuses Rebecca, and she questions if it is Grant she really wants.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story But.... January 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a cute story with an HEA but it wasn't easy to read. It was written in the first person, which is my least favorite, and I had to search ahead a few paragraphs up to a page or two quite a few times to figure out who was speaking. That became frustrating. There was also a lack of detail and depth.

I was looking for a quick, light read without a lot of angst and this did fill the bill, but I think with a little ingenuity it could have very good story. For me, it was only mediocre but I am going to give Book 2 a try as it was rated higher.

Mrs. Carson, mother of four sons, is trying to find a Mail Order Bride for her wayward son, Grant, who is involved with a married woman. She thinks a wife will settle him down and put him on a better path so he will willingly give up his philandering ways. This is done without the knowledge of her sons and when she asks her youngest son, Charlie, to drive to the train station and pick up Grant's new bride-to-be, he is flabbergasted that his mother has resorted to such deceit and trickery.

Rebecca Hart believes she has been wooed by a wonderful, poetic man, but little does she know that Grant's mother is the source she has been corresponding with all these months. She heads west to marry this man she believes she is in love with and to her shock and horror finds out it was all a plan Mrs.Carter set into motion to lure her son away from his affair with a married woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars quick read but still good. January 26, 2014
By Lisa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cute book. Really enjoyed reading it. Like how the chapters weren't that long and it was a quick read. Some of the old school language had me grinning. Had some drama but not to much. Had a love scene but not to explicit. Like how it can stand alone in the series. I would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Humorous Attitude of Hero a bit Off-putting January 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"A Mail Order Bride for Charlie" is a fun, lighthearted romance; with a bit of angst. Rebecca has been corresponding with her future husband by mail for several least she thinks she's been corresponding with him. What Rebecca doesn't know is that the person to whom she's been pouring out her heart and soul is not Grant Carson, but his mother Maggie.

Poor, unsuspecting Rebecca travels to Kansas from New York to meet and marry the man she has fallen in love with...a man who does not exist. I sincerely felt badly for the disappointment and heartache Rebecca suffered when she discovered the truth, and I did not appreciate the fact that Charlie, the so called hero of this story, found so much humor in the situation.

Don't get me wrong, Charlie is a great guy, and under most circumstances I would have found his laid back, fun loving attitude sweet, but in this situation I thought his humor was misplaced. Oh sure, Charlie did provide some comfort to Rebecca, but his overall reaction was one of humor. Quite frankly this disappointed me.

The romance between Charlie and Rebecca could have been so sweet and tender, but instead, IMO, Charlie's blasé attitude almost ruined certainly made it less than it could have been. I wanted him to be more sympathetic, more caring, more outraged on Rebecca's behalf...more of a hero.

I also thought it quite ridiculous that Rebecca would commit to marrying Grant, and in just a matter of days, when it was soooo obvious that he was reluctant to get married. At one point Rebecca thinks to herself "I had come to Kansas to find a husband and secure my future. That goal was in sight, but why could I not feel any joy in it? What was wrong with me?

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to read January 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest, A mail order bride for Charlie was just ok. Reading in the first person usually does not bother me. But Both Charlie and Rebecca was in first person. I had to stop and reread parts because it switched back and forth so much. Other than that it was a cute take on mail order brides. I'm not sure it reads as western, more modern. I might try another book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start March 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great start to the series. I really enjoyed watching Charlie be the man none of his brothers could be yet even though he was the youngest. Rebecca was a spitfire and she fit perfectly with him. The only part of these books I don't like is Grant's affair with May. I'm sure it happened back then but I find it hard to believe the husband wouldn't find out when everyone knows what's going on. People just didn't accept that stuff back then. Other than that, I loved it!
