In Want of a Wife by Jo Goodman

In Want of a Wife
by Jo Goodman

1891 New York City. Jane Middlebourne's parents died when she was very young. She was reluctantly taken in by her mother's wealthy cousin who truthfully didn't really want Jane nor did she treat Jane properly. Now that Jane is an adult, she has no prospects and no future. As a result she accepts a proposal from a Wyoming rancher as a mail order bride. Morgan Longstreet didn't have a happy childhood either and as we later learn, he went to prison for six years when forced to assist his family to rob banks. Now he's just trying to build himself a life and is seeking a partner to work by his side. Unfortunately, his brothers are now out of prison and believe he has the loot that was stolen. This is Book #3 in the Bitter Springs historical romance series. You don't have to have read the first two books to understand what's going on here. You watch as they figure out their relationship, plus we have the added adventure of his brothers trying to mess up things. This was a nice, enjoyable read that had some surprises. -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Charlotte's Reviewer Profile and Other Reviews ]
