MY THOUGHTS:

IN WANT OF A WIFE by Jo Goodman is another interesting Western Historical Romance set in 1891 Bitter Springs, Wyoming. #3 in the “Bitter Springs” series, but can be read as a stand alone. A marriage-of- convenience love story.

Meet, Jane Middlebourn, a mail-order bride and Rancher Morgan Longstreet, who wishes a wife and partner to help him work his ranch, the Morning Star. Jane goes to Wyoming with a hopeful heart, Morgan, enters this marriage with a she is not the one, but a fragile young woman. Boy, is he in for a rude awakening!

Fast paced and filled with secrets, struggles, finding love and an HEA. Just the right mixture of romance, adventure and passion. Ms. Goodman is a wonderful storyteller who brings the Western frontier to life, with her engaging and enduring characters. An enjoyable read! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
