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.
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 it...it 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?Read more ›
Getting past that part, I still found the writing amateur and kind of childish with not enough descriptors. Humor is always nice in a story but Charlie laughed about everything. The best part of the book is the cover. Mmm mmm : )
