Stuck in a life of servitude to her penny-pinching brother, Emily Darling longs for a more exciting existence. When a packet with travel tickets, meant for one Ethel Darton, accidentally lands on her doormat, Emily sees a chance for escape. Having turned down the dreary suitors that have come her way, is it possible a new existence also offers a different kind of man?
Daniel Saunders has carved out a life for himself in Wyoming—a life missing one thing: a wife. Having scrimped and saved to bring his mail-order bride from New York, he is outraged to find in her stead a runaway fraud. Even worse, the impostor is the sister of his old enemy.
But people are not always as they seem, and sometimes the heart knows more than the head.
Between The Pages
A picturesque visual of the Wyoming landscape places the reader in setting of this story. The writing is fresh and the dialogue is smooth. Packed with emotion from the first page, the plot is captivating. I found the ending a bit rushed, only because I wanted the story to last longer. If you’re looking to curl up with a good book, I highly recommend this one.
