Everybody else was doing it, so why not him?
Sam Standish has always prided himself on being a rough and rugged frontier saloonkeeper. Just because he likes to keep things neat and tidy, appreciates good home cooking, and thinks a grandfather clock would be a fine addition to any home does NOT mean he's the settling down type. But he sends away for a mail-order bride anyhow, expecting that once she arrives, his life will be as boring as plain toast.
Julia Frost is a whirlwind in pink cotton who comes from a long line of people that have met early, gruesome, and unfortunate ends. But she's determined to make Sam happy...even if she has to drag him there kicking and screaming. Life in Haskell is everything Julia has ever longed for. She even finds a bosom friend in Bebe Bonneville.
But chaos breaks loose when Julia and Bebe find a clue that indicates robber's loot is hidden in the saloon. And Sam's predictable world is turned on its head when Hubert Strong comes to him for help in wooing and winning Bebe. Will one set of sweethearts be able to help the others start a new life together (possibly with loot!) or will Rex Bonneville put an end to more than one romance?
