Unexpectedly homeless, un-wed mother Sarah Johnson has few options. They could go live with her cousin William, but Sara believes there's something untoward about his offer and it leaves her feeling uncomfortable. She's qualified to be a governess, but no one will have her because she wasn't married when she had her precious MaryAnn. Matchmaker & Co could be her salvation as mail-order-bride to Mr. John Atwood. Single father, John Atwood, is raising his daughter the best he can in the wilds of the Colorado Territory but knows he needs help. No woman he knows wants to take on the raising of his daughter who hasn't spoken since she saw her mother brutally murdered during a bank robbery. Can Sarah, John and their two daughters overcome their pasts and find happiness together?

About the Author

Cynthia Woolf was born in Denver, Colorado and raised in the mountains west of Golden. She spent her early years running wild around the mountain side with her friends.

She was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. She wrote her first story at the age of ten. A romance about a little boy she liked at the time.

Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and her critique partners for saving her sanity, allowing her to explore her creativity.

160 pages. Terrible grammer. Detailed sex. Lots of tears and arguing. Some violence. Very unrealistic. This book was free and I agree with the other reviewers about it being a waste of my time. Hmmm, I think I should be paid for my time. The kids even got on my nerves. They were Stepford kids, only spoiled. The husband was an ass. The heroine more childish then her daughter. The cousin was a horrible monster. I admit to skipping pages. This was the worst book I have read so far this year. Do not waste your time. I did. For adults only. AD

Could be a nice story. But,the simple writing is unbareable

OMG!!! Now this is writing! This story moved fast and the writing was efficient in moving through the story, but I learned to love the Characters,except for William. The 95 pages too about an hour to read and I enjoyed the entire experience. I am sure you will enjoy it, too!!!

The story line was good, however the grammar part need to have some work done on it. .

This was a good read. It has romance, a villain, and a spunky heroine with an adorable daughter. The story line takes place in the old west, which is my favorite. It was a quick read for me, and I would recommend it for others who enjoy romance mixed with the wild west!

Some reviewers are just plain mean. This was a delightful story. Simplistic in writing style, but the characters were great. The awful cousin, William, was certainly insane and hated. But John is the kind of man I would want to find for my own husband. (Ranch life would be a bonus!) Sarah was strong and the daughters a good example of having loving parents and being obedient children of days long ago. ( I am a teacher. Believe me, kids have changed.) I doubt I will read it again, but I enjoyed this book! Oh, it was nearly 300 pages on my Nook. Thanks for the free read!

The characters were not well developed and the plot unrealistic.

Ewww. His sexy talk sounds like creepy pick-up lines. It's hard to believe that there is no conflict between the girls or period of adjustment for everyone to get used to each other. Yuck!!

Terrible grammar, choppy storyline and unrealistic. I dont know much about this timeperiod but i do know this didnt come close. It does have potential though if it were expanded at least 100 pgs..

Good thing this book was free or I would want my money back.  The plot is abysmal and the conflict contrived.  "Oh, yeah, I forgot to say he still loves his wife, so, he does." "Oh, yeah, I forgot to say the cousin is crazy, but he is."  Don't bother.

Character development was good, the story draws you in. I would read another book by Cynthia Woolf.

I don't think that Sep. and Nov. reviewers even read the story. It's a good read. A western romance with a handsome hero, spunky heroine, two cute little girls and a nutso villian. It's not Tolstoy, but I saved it to reread. 18+. JS

I enjoyed this old time story of mail bride. Some light emotion which was enough to connect to main charactors. Great to see each accept the other.

It needed to be proofread, but the story was good. Quick read, but it kept moving without dragging on. I recommend.

Be sure to schedule enough free time to read this book from start to finish. It is so good you can't put it down until the last page.
