I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a fair review
When Cynthia Woolf offered copies of her different audiobooks in exchange for a review, I jumped at the chance because she’s a new author to me. I asked for a sweet clean western romance, and she stated this was the cleanest book she wrote. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator! There were a few cuss words in the beginning but that was understandable for the people who were talking. There was a great story line and wonderful character building, but I had to fast forward through two sex scenes. I don’t think they added to the story but since I don’t normally listen or read stories that contain sex scenes I’m not sure why they are there. This was the first in the series so I probably won’t read the others, but if they were cleaner, or if you could choose between a clean or spicy version I would love to give them another chance! Thanks Cynthia for the opportunity to try your books out! The spice level is not for me, but the story line was really unique and interesting!
I have read several books by Cynthia Woolf and have enjoyed them a great deal. Mail Order Outlaw may well be my favorite so far. Her writing is smooth and even though the plot of a mail order bride has been used many times, she puts a fresh spin on this one. I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful book.
I am not going to do a synopsis because Ms. Woolf has accurately given a detailed one. Mail Order Outlaw is an entertaining read and captured my attention from the first page and held it until the end. The pacing is quick and lively, along with excellent dialogue between the hero and heroine and the supporting characters.
Lizzie Cobb is a wonderful heroine. She is loyal to her loved ones, honest to a fault and has an independent side, yet she also comes across as feminine. Considering she rarely wears a dress and is able to manage her young brother’s rancher on her own is quite a feat. Well done, Ms. Woolf. Lizzie has to deal with prejudices because of her Indian blood, but she does it with grace.
Ed/Mal is a great hero. While life has dealt him a bad hand of cards, he has been able to avoid being tainted by his brother and father, choosing to hold his teachings from his mother close to his heart. I loved that he took an opportunity to escape his outlaw life and in such an innovative way. While he starts his courtship of Lizzie under a cloud of deceit, he does it so sincerely, I could not hold it against him.
Lizzie and Mal have great chemistry, and Ms. Woolf creates a wonderful and believable arch for their romance. I truly wanted them to find a way past the rocky start in their relationship. The love scenes, while explicit to some degree, are very tender and were devoted more to the emotions involved than the physical description of the sexual act. They also happen after their marriage. I really appreciated the delicacy Ms. Woolf used.
If you enjoy a unique love story with endearing characters and a good bit of suspense, then you will love Mail Order Outlaw as much as I did. I look forward to reading the next book in the Brides of Tombstone series. Happy reading!
