Publisher's Summary

Abby Carter was horrified with herself when she blurted out a marriage proposal to Preston King. A proper lady would never do such a thing, but her cousin had just jilted Preston, and she wanted to ease his hurt. She had cared for him much too long. 

Preston is confused, but knows he needs a wife to help him ranch in New Mexico Territory, so he asks Abby to marry him. But will he ever purge Magnolia from his heart, and will they even survive the long journey west?

Enjoyed this!

After a hasty "I'll marry you" to her cousin's jilted fiance, Abby couldn't believe she had said that. However she have been attracted to Preston for a long time. He decided to wet her and they started their journey West. well he knew she was pretty she just never seemed beautiful to him, however, over the course of their journey that changed. They ran into a lot of hardships but they managed to get to their location.

This was a long but good listen. Full of fun and some shady characters. Many times I found myself wishing I was right there in the midst of them. A little suspense written in here and there to keep the reader intrigued.

Narrative was well done.

I received a free copy of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving my review.

Heartwarming

This was a sweet, heartwarming story of love and hardship about a couple traveling west. Abby Carter offers to become his wife and accompany Preston King to his uncle’s ranch in the New Mexico Territory after her cousin breaks his heart. Their journey is long and arduous, with many heartaches and dangers, however they finally make it. Unfortunately their difficulties don’t end there. Though this story was long and drawn out at times, I found it interesting and entertaining. I thought both narrators did a wonderful job with the narration and really enjoyed the fact that it was a duet narration. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook, however I have voluntarily provided this unbiased review.

A love story

I really liked the premise of this book, but I struggled with some of the storyline. I have enjoyed other books written by this author and will definitely be reading more by her.

Excellent

First choice might not of been the best choice. With working the ranch the focus will grow in their common interest. Cute story with adventure, twists of how they realize this was the best for them and love will grow.
