THE UNLIKELY WIFE
The arrival of Michael Bowen's bride, married sight unseen by proxy, sends the rancher reeling. With her trousers, cowboy hat and rifle, she looks like a female outlaw—not the genteel lady he corresponded with for months. He's been hoodwinked into marriage with the wrong woman!
Selina Farleigh Bowen loved Michael's letters, even if she couldn't read them herself. A friend read them to her, and wrote her replies—but apparently that "friend" left things out, like Michael's dream of a wife who was nothing like her. Selina won't change who she is, not even for the man she loves. Yet time might show Michael the true value of his unlikely wife.
Iffen you're strung tight as a clothesline readin' this here book will set you to feelin' fine as a frog's hair in no time! Take one dirt poor, Kentucky 'mail order bride', a high-falutin' dreamer of a groom (who is dreamy incidentally), add in a mix-up of grand proportions and what do you get? A funny, entertaining, not-to-be missed read! I had sooooo much fun with this book! Even developed a Kentucky twang for a spell!
Selina may not be what Michael was expecting, but she's exactly what he needs, even if it takes him purty near the whole darn book to figer that out! LOL. Brilliant plot device on the part of Ullrick. It set me all a'giggly right to the very end! Watching Michael. flounder and try to come to terms with finding himself married to the 'dream girl' of his nightmares made for a rollicking read! But there's also drama and tenderness and a poignant message about being true to yourself . This is one of the best romantic comedies I have ever read!
