    A Cute Romance

    I immediately learned to appreciate Mary. Although the word choice needs work, some parts were extreemly unrealistic, and "cheesy" found its head everywhere, the story was still captivating. A number of life lessons can be found from reading this story.
    It's a sweet, quick read and if you like the author's other books, then this story won't let you down.
    **Just a side note: You should read her other books before this one because the stories intertwine (A Bride for Tom & A Husband for Margaret).

    I really loved this book :- D

    I read a lot of romance books. I read erotica, historical, harlequin and was worried that this would be boring. NO WAY! This book made me laugh, cry and share snipits with my family. It is a great book to read and re-read. I've went ahead and got other books by her and have not been disappointed. It's nice to feel hopeful, happy and inspired with books and these will deliver all three.

    Love, love, love it!!!

    I agree reading the previous books before this one is a good idea as you will know the other characters with more depth. This book is excellent stand alone though and I loved all of it. The relationship between Mary and Dave was great and the whole story is just wonderful!!

    Definitly a keeper

    Lovely story with good characterization and background. A few errors when looking at the series but nothing overwhelming. I look forward to revisiting Dave and Mary again.

    At a guess would say book is appx 200 or so pages and rated PG or maybe R for a couple of explicite scenes

    Ilove this book

    This is the one i have read and reread. I love the Larsons and the whole Larson series. I want to go on record as saying I love the romantic sex scenes. My husband needs to make love to me like these men make love to their wives.

    Touching story

    I read this book, as well as, the sequel. I found the story to be beautiful. Descriptions of the people and places were well executed. Feelings had by characters were carefully written. The author did an amazing job!

    Wonderful, Sweet Romance

    4.5 Stars. Mary is a plain, as in unattractive, girl who finds herself becoming an old maid while living with her parents. She decides the way to change her fate is to become a mail-order bride. But when she meets her intended husband, he rejects her on the spot based on her appearance. Another man who is seeking a wife steps in and persuades her to marry him.

    There is no compromise on Mary's appearance--the ugly duckling doesn't become a swan. But her new relatives and friends learn to value her as her husband does from the first. Exceptionally lovely story, even for the wonderful Ms. Nordin

    This was enjoyable plain Jane, homesteading, mail order bride ro

    This was enjoyable plain Jane, homesteading, mail order bride romance. The characters were lovely. It would have been 4 stars but I
     thought the ending did not follow character and made th book more common than it needed to be. It has a lovely HEA. It has sequel
     but I am happy to leave things where they are with this couple.
