Glad it was free!

This was supposed to take place in 1869 and the author used language spoken today--terms like "Lighten up" and "Stop bugging me". Also, the boys had a soccer ball. The term "soccer" was created in the 1880s in England. She used the word "motel" which is a hotel designed...
This was supposed to take place in 1869 and the author used language spoken today--terms like "Lighten up" and "Stop bugging me". Also, the boys had a soccer ball. The term "soccer" was created in the 1880s in England. She used the word "motel" which is a hotel designed for motorists, usually offering parking. There were no motorists or motels in 1869 Nebraska. If the author didn't do her research, there should have been someone proofreading the story. After reading this book, I have decided I should become an author. I'm certain I could a better job.

    Cute story, but-----

    The lack of appropriate use of wording for this period in time was really missing in this book. I also do not, personally, appreciate the inclusion of such explicit sex in the books I read. Ms. Nordin seems to feel that it is a must in her books , therefore I do not think I will be reading any more of her works.

    a funny thing called fate

    Sometimes love is not always going to be right in front of you. You may have to look a little farther like Margaret did. She placed an ad looking for a husband and she found one, although it was not who she thought it was going to be. Also enjoyed the bond she made with Joseph's boys and the strength she had to love them as her own.

    Great fun romance

    this was a fun, witty, romance. In the beginning of the book I wasn't sure how I felt about it, but after about 10 pages I was hooked. I look forward to more from this author.
