    8. The Cowboy's Mail Order Bride was a really fun book to read. Emily goes to Greg's ranch to deliver some letters to his grandmother. She is fulfilling her grandfather's dying wish. She only planned on being there for one day. What she didn't plan on was finding love and a home. I loved watching Emily and Greg fall for each other.

    11. DNR beyond page 162This is the only Carolyn Brown story that didn't work for me. As likable as Emily and Greg are, they bored me--not in an annoying way, just unexciting. The mischievous senior ladies, the grief and recovery theme, the close-knit community and the overall charm of her writing are really appealing. Pretty sure this is just a one-off. Still a C.B. fan.

    13. Love Comes SoftlyThe Cowboy's Mail Order Bride by Carolyn Brown is the best. It's emotional, gooey, and sweet. Hot, sexy, and funny too. I feel in love with all of the characters.

He has so much to offer the strong, independent, yet beautiful cowgirl. They were made for each other. I can go on with more detail [...]

    15. This book was an interesting combination of the “Meddling old folks” story line with a “cowboy mail order bride” story line, although technically there is no mail order to the bride. I know, confusing. Overall, I liked the writing and enjoyed the delightful characters. I’d definitely recommend the book to someone who liked the genre. It’s cute and a quick enjoyable read.

    16. I laughedI cried and I couldn't put this book down. The interactions were realistic yet still romantic. I'm going to get more by this author.

    24. I was expecting a historical for some reason. Anyhow it was a wholesome contemporary western. Very cutesy!

She does and that truly begins the story.That's where the hunk is. Who also has a ranchd lives with HIS grandmother who is a delight. And so are her close friends.
