    One thought on “Cowboy Seeks a Bride”

    1. Marybeth had a plan she didn't share. She was a nice girl who had a good opportunity to advance herself, but she forgot one thing. She wasn't totally honest with those who would help her even further. Smart and lovely, she prepared herself to take a train to meet a young man who was eligible for marriage. Rumors even pushed her further from wanting to make a firm decision. When she met the bachelor, she could only remember what she heard. She didn't close her heart totally, but found reasons to [...]

    2. When I first finished this book I really iked it, but after thinking on it some more, it wasn't a favorite story as it didn't leave a lasting impression. I didn't really liked the heroine, as I thought she was deceptive in a way to not even plan on marrying the guy.All in all, while I liked the story, it wasn't a favorite.*I receive a complimentary ebook copy of this book for my honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

    3. 4 STARSI liked the story, community & characters. Also liked that it is a clean read and I wanted to know more about them. I did figure out what happened to her brother. Does mention church, scriptures and values as part of the story. It fits in with the story.Randall Northam makes for a good hero. He is a good guy, who changed his bad ways and is trying to be better in his life.Marybeth is likeable but was living a lie. She is smart, alone and cares about others. She does not want to make t [...]

    4. What I liked: Both Marybeth and Randall have a goal. Randall wants a wife and a family. After killing a man in his past he hopes that Marybeth can see he is a changed man and give him a chance. I liked Randall and thought he was working hard to improve his life. Marybeth has one goal to find her brother who she has not seen in years. She comes west to marry Randall after his family pays her way. The storyline was different and I felt the added side story of Marybeth finding her brother gave this [...]

    5. Louise M. Gouge has written a refreshing change in mail order bride/arranged marriages stories. I liked the challenge each party had between them. This is the second book in the series and I wish I had read the first one but this one can stand alone. I liked how the characters interacted with each other and how they sought to bring their differences to a conclusion. I look forward to the next book in the series and I'm looking for the first one. You created a monster Ms Gouge.

    6. I absolutely loved this clean historical western, and I've given it a 5* rating. It was rich in history and I loved the interest in the first typewriters. What a long way we have some in banking too. The bad guy was real easy to dislike and all the rest of the characters in this little town made things interesting also.This book held my attention but all the olympics cut into my reading time, so it took me longer than normal. Just enoyed this author's work.

    7. DNF. In truth I could only get through reading the first chapter and even that was a struggle. Mostly in what I read of this novel I found its pace to be slow and Marybeth to be annoying. I understand she has abuse issues because of her father but after hearing what she did about Rand (from a friend of his while on the train to meet him) she pegged him as being a bad guy and was overly standoffish. I just couldn't put up with it.I just wasn't a fan and don't recommend.

    8. I love how Marybeth's search for her brother forces Rand to postpone their arranged marriage. . . which neither of them seems that anxious to pursue at the beginning, anyway. This gave both of them time to get to know and understand each other before deciding on a course of action. The fact that Marybeth's brother had changed his name and was Rand's good friend came across as sweet rather than convenient.

    9. 'It's all forgiven' - words to live by! A train ticket, a wedding dress and a trip across the country. A cowboy who expects a bride, but a bride that has something besides a wedding on her mind! Can all be forgiven when the groom discovers the real reason the young lady accepted the train ticket purchased by his parents? A lovely story, not to be missed, keeping you guessing right up till the end.

    10. I enjoyed reading Cowboy Seeks A Bride the second in the Four Stones Ranch Series by Louise Gouge. Randall Northans parents are in Boston. They seek out a bride for their one son out west. They pay for her train ticket. ButMarybeth O'Malley only wants to go west to find her brother, not to marry. A lot goes on in this story. A must read.

    11. Pretty standard except for one thing - I've read these "inspirational" books for a LONG time, and this was the first one EVER to hint there could be more going on in the marital bedroom than the making of babies. Just a hint, but

    12. This is the first book from this line I've read that's far too preachy and conservative for an international audience. A pity the author decided judgemental was the way to go.And the 'guns are the greatest' thread running throughout the book got this non-American's hackles up.Review copy.
