The Husband Hunt
Theater singer Fiona O'Keefe is on a quest to form the perfect family for her orphaned niece. It's a shame handsome and musically talented Sawyer Evans can't support a household on his sawmill-manager wages. Fiona needs a respectable gentleman of means. And if she can't find one in Singapore, Michigan, then she'll just have to look for a husband in the mail-order want ads
Sawyer doesn't want Fiona to marry a stranger or anyone other than him. It would be easy to reveal that he's secretly heir to a railroad fortune. But Sawyer's determined to be a self-made man, so he isn't willing to take his father's money. Instead, can he prove to Fiona that the man she needs is already by her side?

Sweet story. It is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. I have to admit that I did not connect with Fiona in this book. I really did not like her very much. But, toward the end of the story, I began to understand a little more why she handled things the way she did. I went back and forth about whether I liked Sawyer, the hero of this book, too. The writing was good and the storyline interesting. I just struggled with not being fond of these particular characters. I am, however, very interested in reading the next book in this series, which will feature Louise, who is a side character in this book.
Mail Order Sweetheart is a charming tale! Christine Johnson cleverly brings this story to life with an unlikely pairing that is both engaging and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed Fiona’s and Sawyer’s story and look forward to continuing the Boom Town Brides series. I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.
I want to start off by saying that this book is a part of a series but you can read it as a stand alone as I have not read any of the other books and was not at all lost. Both main characters Fiona and Sawyer were people I found likable. You have to respect Sawyer for not taking the easy road and living off his father's money. Instead he wanted to make it on his and prove that he could do it. Fiona was trying to do what she could to make a happy healthy home for her niece. Both people had a lot on their shoulders. I liked the overall theme of this book as well as the time period. I like how this author's books make me feel good after reading them.
