    This book was a fast read but was cute and innocent. All the characters were very well mannered, and there was no real drama in the story. I think the characters were well-rounded, and it was a pleasant read.

    THEY MAKE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER Another wonderful story of Wild West Frontier Brides. What I love is that you get to know the various characters in these stories and it is fun seeing people from previous books. Sam Allen is a bartender at Tripp and Sadie's restaurant, The Occidental. When he finds out his mother is coming from New York for a visit, he goes into a panic. He told her he was married and a business owner. Trying to find a mail order bride on short notice isn't easy.

Meg Archer has had feelings for Sam, but it is as if he doesn't even know she exists. Answering as a mail order bride, he agrees to marry this stranger who answered his ad, what a shock to learn it is Meg. Beau Archer won't even allow her to court even though she is an adult and of age. Can these two pull off their deception and convince his mother they have been married for two years? How many people will be involved trying to help a friend? So many secrets, can two people find happiness and healing? This story kept the pages turning with witty dialog, entertaining characters and heartwarming moments. I love that they end on an HEA note and also with a lead into another story.

    This is the third book in the series, but the first one that I read. I could tell that there were things I was missing, but the author mentioned in passing any important information that I'd need in order to understand the family dynamics. Sometimes the writing was a little stilted, and the dialogue could be weak. There were some plot holes that make me think, "No way could that ever happen." But I still gave it five stars!

It was a sweet, clean romance. I loved Meg's optimism. Often times a "mail order bride" is nervous, although excited, to start her new life. Meg just knew from the beginning, "This is going to work." And I loved the confidence. This was a light, sweet, fun book that was quick to read and a great break from every day life. The day after I finished reading I kept thinking, "I want to sneak away and finish that book!" Only to remember I'd already finished it. I wanted more!

    . This 'free' ebook through Kindle Unlimited definitely was a sweet and clean tale about a mail-order bride. Both parties agreed to become a partner in marriage. I must say that the women in this series are tremendous role models. They were independent, strong, and respectful toward their families. Each worked together with their husbands as a team. The men are hard working, loving, and handsome! Who wouldn't want to spend time with them? The proofreader must have dozed through their responsibilitie .

The men are hard working, loving, and handsome! Who wouldn't want to spend time with them? The proofreader must have dozed through their responsibilities to this series, since there were multiple grammar errors. In this tale, Sam and Nutmeg are drawn together and face their individual struggles on the road to marital bliss. A clean tale, able to stand on its own, and a surprise twist of an H.E.A.

    Sam and Meg (Nutmeg, really?!). I realize I'm in the minority here, but I didn't care for this book at all. I couldn't have any respect for a man that would lie to his mother for a couple of years, saying that he was married when he wasn't, and not being willing to tell her what he does for a living. It's not like he was robbing banks or anything! This whole mail order debacle comes along because his mother is coming to visit and he needs a bride.

I didn't feel the connection between the two of them.

    The sweetest of the first four. I believe this is because of the love that has grown in Nutmeg's heart for Sam from the first day they met. Sam's mother come to Tombstone and he needs a new profession and a bride right away. Nutmeg steps up and becomes the mail order bride he needs. As much as they try to ignore their feelings love grows and everyone sees it but Sam and Nutmeg. A fast read and very endearing. The sweetest of the first four.

    I mostly just read this series because it fits a certain reading challenge that I undertake every year. The stories are all really tame, and this one was as well. I liked the heroine in this one but would have definitely preferred to have known more about the hero or perhaps get his side of things as well. This was okay for a short and light read.

    I liked this clean romance, but didn't give it a higher rating because I found the premise and characters' reasoning throughout the novel to be a little strange. There were also many typos and it could have used another proofread. The characters were interesting and I'm glad everything worked out in the end.

    I really enjoyed Nutmeg Archer's antics and her determination to win over Sam Allen's heart. The lengths they go to in order to trick his mother is quite diverting. I did not understand how if his mother arrived on the train on a Sunday (which was part of the storyline) how could they eat at the restaurant on Sunday, which was closed on Sunday (also part of the story line)?

    Never fib to your mother! Trying to be someone they aren't got Sam in a rush to make it a reality. Boy did things get messed up. Meg really loves Sam.

    It’s a bit silly, nothing really exciting happens and the typos are annoying, but on the other hand it’s relatively cute, totally clean, and I got it for free. Rounding up the rating to 3*.

    Almost a comedy of errors with Sam and his "mail order bride" Meg (short for Nutmeg) trying to fool Sam's mother into believing they've been married for 2 years instead of 24 hours.

Sam has a real need to get a wife and quickly, he's been letting his Mom know for a few years that he had a great business and a wife. She is coming to visit. The entire thing is really set up to fail, but the entire town gets behind helping him out.

    I really enjoyed this sweet, clean mail-order bride story. The premise was unique and the writing was solid. The characters in the story are each unique and each come with their own problems and quirks. I like how this sets it apart from the majority of other mail-order bride books. Even though the couples meet and fall in love quickly the way that the story leads up to the ending you can feel a connection between them and the appearance is that it was longer.

    A delightful story of a mail-order bride. The difference is that she lives in the same town as the groom and they know each other. Meg has been in love with her brother's best friend Sam for years but he has never noticed her. Now his mother is coming to town and he has misled her about his life and needs a bride before she gets there. He advertises in a magazine and waits for a reply. However the only replys he gets are refusals because he is a bartender. So Meg decides to answer the ad herself A delightful story of a mail-order bride.
