I like Jodie Wolfe's writing. I've read several of her books and was looking forward to getting into this one and I wasn't disappointed. It read so smoothly, I didn't want to put it down. I think this is Jodie's best book yet! Right from the start, Jules reminded me of Doris Day in Calamity Jane, one of my favorite movies. She was raised mostly on the trail by her brother, Josh, was never taught the feminine social graces women were expected to have back in the 1800s, always cooked on a campfire and she didn't know the workings of a stove. So when she became a mail order bride, she wasn't exactly the wife her groom was expecting. I kept looking for someone to step in and teach Jules all the things she needed to know to be a perfect wife but that didn't happen. I did find Jules to be likable, strong, and fearless. I think she would make a great best friend. I hope there's a second book. I'd really like to read Josh's story.
