About the Author
Their closest neighbor was about one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.
Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. At age ten, she wrote her first romance about a little boy she liked at the time.
Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The writing is poor, and it does not seem to have been edited. It is full of typos and errors. I noticed Robinson Caruso (instead of Crusoe) in one place!
There is too much telling of what happens and what the characters are thinking rather than showing. It has unnecessary details in some places and skips details when it shouldn't.
The writing is simplistic, as if it's intended for middle grade readers. I wouldn't recommend it for readers that young, however, because the characters talk about having sex a lot. (They finally do have it, but the reader doesn't see it.)
I'm giving it two stars instead of one because the story is pleasant enough. I did think it was a little weird for the dead wife's mother to not only be living with them but also criticizing her deceased daughter and taking the heroine's side. This is only 6 months since the first wife's death.
The letters among the three women seem like filler. Even with all of those, the book is still short.
“Genevieve: Bride of Nevada” definitely counts as your standard Mail Order Bride novel. It’s one of a series of books that were written by a number of authors. In this series, there is a book for every state in the USA. This one focuses on Genny, a young woman who has just lost her job as a factory employee when the factory burns down. She answers an ad for a Mail Order Bride from a rancher in Nevada who was recently widowed and needs a wife to help him raise his two small children. The problem she encounters after she meets him is that he doesn’t intend for it to be a “real” marriage. His wife had died in childbirth and he is unwilling to let himself love another woman and risk losing her that way as well. And no “real” marriage means that there will never be any more children and no risk of losing someone else.
As she really has no other options at that point, Genny agrees and marries Stuart. She falls instantly in love with his children, and they are almost as quickly in love with her. Then she discovers that her new husband intends to share a bed with her, though there will be no physical intimacy between them. (Remember, he’s not willing to risk his heart or to father more children.) Unfortunately for Genny, she truly wishes to have children of her own in addition to the two of Stuart’s that she is helping to raise. As expected, she falls in love with a husband who keeps pushing her away.
Next comes the expected obstacle they must overcome. Genny, realizing that she loves her husband, but miserable over his unwillingness to return her feelings and make their marriage a “real” one, packs her few belongings, leaves her wedding ring behind, and returns to the nearby town. She hates leaving the children, (the youngest of which had just that day started calling her mama), but she can’t remain as nothing more than a caretaker and housekeeper. Back in town, she takes a job waitressing at the hotel restaurant in the hopes that she might at least be able to see the two children once in a while.
I’m not going to go into further detail as to what happens next. After all, I don’t want to give the whole story away. I’ve mentioned already that this book follows the standard formula for Mail Order Bride stories, so you can pretty much guess at what will happen. Several times this book did make me tear up, sometimes due to sadness and others at happy moments. (The subject is one of my guilty pleasures, after all). There were a couple of spots that could have been slightly better edited, but overall it wasn’t bad. It was a very quick book to read. I finished it in less than a day, and as expected, I did enjoy it. Hopefully you will too.
We follow Genevieve on her quest to find love and family on a ranch in Nevada. Hoping to win the heart of her “groom”, Gennie soon realizes, after losing his wife in childbirth, Stuart wants only a “nanny” for his two children.
Will Gennie melt Stuart’s heart and find her HEA? Of course she will but her journey will be paved with cobble stones.
A very good story, hard to put down so I had to read straight through.
