Seeet Romance!

I just love this kind of story - such sweet romance.
It begins with a huge disappointment in Joanna's mail order intended husband and of course she has to get away from him and meet up with Jared and they fall in love.
This reminded me of the old time Westerns that my dad used to take me to see which always had a bad guy, a great good guy and a lovely young lady and though each movie was quite different, we always knew that the good guy would win the love of the lady in the end. (Sigh!)
And that ending! Oh so swoony!
Barbara Goss' stories remind me of those lovely old Westerns. Need I say more?
Susan Fouche is a new narrator to me and she is remarkable in that she has a totally different and perfectly matched voice for each character. As examples, Jared's father actually sounds like an older man and Joanna, like a sweet, young lady. Amazing talent!
I can confidently recommend this book/audiobook as I loved every second of it.
I listened to the audiobook version and my review above is given voluntarily and is unbiased.

Jared & Joanna!

Just when I need a good listen, Barbara Goss releases an audiobook. A little bit of everything included, I was able to enjoy a slow burn romance, a little suspense, a new beginning and a lot of hope and love! When Joanna comes to Hayes to marry, she anticipates a young ranch owner, but is greeted with a drunk man, much older than she expects who owns a pig ranch. Escaping her certain fate of marriage, she hurts her foot and is rescued by Jared, a trapper who lives in a cabin in the woods. Can this be her destiny? I love a good old fashioned western, and Goss always makes sure I get a good flavor of that time period. With the old hotel, the saloon and even a gunfight we are transported back in time to enjoy this romance. Old flames, new flames and good family ties all thrown in, this is a feel good, warm hearted book.

Susan Fouche does a spectacular narration of this book. Her talent is used to the max with the characters, from Joanna and Jared all the way to the town gossips! She has an incredible array of voices, and each one shines with personality. She is the perfect choice for this portrayal.

Trapped

A mail order bride on the run from the drunk she is supposed to marry gets injured in a trap. The trapper helps her and feelings emerge. But is he only being kind because of guilt and can he keep her safe from the drunk who won't give up. The narrator does a wonderful job. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

Trapped in love

Joanna wanted adventure. What she got was her foot caught in a bear trap!
Jared wanted to live his own life, what he had was the scandal of the year!
This delightful story as all the feel good love you come to expect from Barbara Goss. The narration is wonderfully done by Susan Fouche. You won't be disappointed in this performance!

This Is A Great Sweet Inspirational Romance Story

This is another winner by Barbara Goss. I haven't read a story of hers that I didn't like. This is a short sweet inspirational romance story. I love these two they are super sweet. What could have been a disastrous marriage God was in control and put the right two together. I can't recommend this highly enough.


I received a copy of this from the author Thoughts and opinions expressed are mine alone.

Joanna and Jared

Joanna was looking for an adventure and signed up to be a mail order bride. Except when she got to town her intended was drunk and proven to be a liar. Jared was living away from town in an effort to escape the gossip started by a money-grubbing young woman who said she was carrying Jared's child.

Joanna and Jared it off right away when she fled town to escape her intended groom, except Joanna is worried about her intended groom finding her and Jared is worried about what will happen when Joanna hears the gossip. Once the drunk intended groom and the money-grubbing young woman make connections the relationship Jared and Joanna had been trying to hide will be tested.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and the characters. Susan did well with all aspects of the narration.

Another Sweet Tale

I love these books so much!! Ms. Goss writers characters that you like or loath very well. Her Godly influence is always present, but she doesn't shrink from the romance or just plain thoughts and desires. It makes for a very entertaining book that you'll be quickly drawn into. The predictability of the happily ever after is so nice! You know exactly what you're in for! The narrator did a pretty good job. Nice range of emotions and accents.
