Sintesi dell'editore

A lady farmer and a disgraced detective - will what starts as an arrangement turn into something more?

Leigh Hawthorne, a widow and local farmer in Tucker Springs, Massachusetts, answers an unusual letter from a man out west, who wants to marry a woman with ranching expertise. Hoping to find a better life, Leigh embarks on a journey to Chance City, Oklahoma.

Fired for breaking Pinkerton rules, former detective Cyrus Decker just wants to live a quiet life as a cattle rancher. The problem is that he knows nothing about ranching - and his bank account shows it. Dogged by Chance City's sheriff to join his staff and plagued by money woes, Cy desperately needs help to turn their ranch around. He hopes that Leigh is the answer to his prayers.

Brought together by necessity, will Leigh and Cy find love, or will their attempt to find lasting happiness meet with disaster? Join the Chance City adventure as its citizens battle opposing forces and mayhem in their searches for love and a brighter future.

What a great listen

What a delightful story with both strong male and female roles just with different strengths. Cyrus owns a small ranch but doesn’t know a thing about ranching if the ranch was left in his hands there wouldn’t be one. Leigh knows a lot about ranching but her father in law won’t give her credit for anything since her husband died. He uses her as a slave with nothing in return. She has had an enough and plans to find a way out. Cyrus decides he needs a foreman Leigh decides she wants the job they agree to get married a win win for both of them. He get a free foreman and do his job as a sheriff, she gets a place to call her own to do things as she wants everyone wins or do they?

The narrator does a great job but at times is a little slow not pausing when he needs to and pausing before he does. As you get into the audio I didn’t notice that and was taken away by a great story. Some of his female characters voices need a little work but for the most part they are very nice. His male voices are great I loved Cy voice it was very sexy and deep. I had no trouble knowing who was talking or what they were feeling. He shows great emotions from sad, to humor as needed. I found no background noises or any volume changes. If any breaks were taken I could not tell.

I loved this audio with the strong characters learning how to get along but knowing their weakness and doing what they do best. I loved the humor and do some majorly chuckling as well as the serious things. There is a little bit of everything in here from racism to robbery and everything in between. Cy has mixed blood and most people don’t like it. I liked how the author keeps the story moving with many different cases that Cy was on. It is a win for me with Leigh being able to take over and the praise she gets for a job well done. The supporting characters are wonderful some I would love to see have stories of their own. I really liked how Cy and Leigh get along from their teasing to their bricking. Leigh isn’t afraid to tell it like it is she is one very entertaining women that holds her own very well. The slow steady build up of the romance is great, the little side stories are wonderful. The twists and turns kept me hooked and very entertained. I really enjoyed this audio from start to finish.

Mail Order Twist

Cy, former Pinkerton agent, and Dapne are siblings trying to keep the ranch from going under with little knowledge of how to actually run a ranch. Enter Leigh, a widow and a mail-order bride who is willing to run the ranch. Neither Cy or Leigh are convinced that love will be part of the equation.

Leigh gets right to work making changes on the ranch while Cy continues with his work at the Sheriff's office. I like that this book didn't focus on one mystery to be solved as part of Cy's job, but instead Cy worked on several cases throughout the book.

I enjoyed the story and the tension between Cy and Leigh. Leigh is a strong female character who has her weaknesses, but knows what she wants and goes for it. I also enjoy a character who waits for marriage even though sparks are flying.

Jay Smith did a great job as narrator and I had no complaints with his narrating. Hoping to hear more in this series.

Great story!

Cyrus Decker, a fired Pinkerton detective finds himself in the middle of a murder in his hometown of Chance City, OK. He wants a "normal, ranching life" but knows nothing about ranching and cannot find anyone who is willing to marry a "half-breed", so he sends for a mail-order bride who does not care about his parentage.

Leigh Hawthorne is a widow who enjoys working her ranch but is looked down upon for doing a "man's job". Cyrus gives her the opportunity to help run his ranch and it is an offer that she cannot pass up. She still thinks about her dearly departed husband, yet desires to have the companionship of a man again, and even wonders if love can also emerge.

Can these two searching hearts come together and learn to love or will they be torn apart by murder and a sheriff who wants nothing more than to bring Cyrus back into the world of law enforcement that he left?

Robin weaves a wonderful story of family loyalty, friendship, intrigue, murder and even deals with racism. I loved the way she tells this story and I look forward to book two! Jay Smith sounded like he is jumping into the fiction story world. I look forward to how his talent and skill grows!

Note: This book is the spicy version of this story. "Love and Mystery" by Ruby Lynn is the sweet version. :)

This audible was given to me and I voluntarily give this honest review.

Wonderful

This was a very good book. Hated to get to the end but that just makes you long for the next one. Your heart goes out to the hurt that Cyrus and his family have battled through.

Need the Job Done? Hire a Woman!

Author Robin Deeter writes strong heroines, perhaps a bit too obviously strong for the times but fully enjoyable nonetheless. The progressive momentum of the end of the 19th century means a lot of what seems anachronistic quite likely isn't. Scientific investigations predate CSI, after all, and forensic evidence has long drawn a picture and told a story.

Narrator Jay Smith nicely modulates a variety of voices and the action progresses swiftly as a failing rancher takes his friend's joke as a suggestion and requests a ranch manager from a mail order bride company. Ms Deeter has a nice light touch and keeps the humor to the forefront except when tragedy occurs. There are a number of secondary characters who are nicely developed as well; since this is listed as Book 1 in the series, I anticipate more fun!

Loved the narrator!

Great story - loved the heroine and supporting characters. The back story was unusual and paradoxically quite believable. But it’s the narrator that brought it all to life. I’m looking forward to the next installment!

Ex-Pinkerton Rancher mail orders Farming Widow

Cyrus is trying to rancher with little experience. He is an ex-Pinkerton, part Indian, and struggling to move on with his life changes. He can’t afford a ranch foreman, and upon suggestion puts in for mail order bride who could run his ranch.
Leigh runs a family farm (her husbands farm, he has died) and has conflicts with her father in law. She heads west to marry Cyrus.
In the midst of their getting to know each other are issues of racism, robbery, death, murder, forbidden love, barrenness, depression, anger, isolation, prostitution, etc etc.
There are a number of interesting characters who I would be interested in finding out their stories and what happens with Cyrus and Leigh. There are times in the story that lag in interest not terrible but not engaging. The switch from characters kept things going but could be confusing.
All and all a nice story and I would be interested in more but not to the pints of anxiously waiting for the next book.
The narrator did an excellent job of emotion and acting as if it were a play..occasionally a bit much, but I rather have that then a boring reading, really enjoyed his job.

Great series starter

Although it’s a bit cheesy at times, I loved this book. It’s well written and very entertaining. I finished it in one sitting. The narration is a bit choppy in places but doesn’t detract from the story. I will definitely listen to the next in the series to find out what the rest of these characters’ stories hold!
