Kit McBride is as rugged as they come, but the bookish cowboy is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime when he’s saddled with a surprise mail-order bride. A hilarious historical romance for fans of Bridgerton and Calamity Jane.

Kit McBride knows that Buck’s Creek, Montana, is no place to find a wife. Good thing he’s not looking for one – between him and his brothers, and little sister Junebug, they manage all right on their own, thank you very much. Unbeknownst to Kit, though, Junebug is sick to death of cleaning and cooking for her big brothers, so she places an ad in The Matrimonial News to get him hitched.

Maddy Mooney, recently arrived from Ireland, has found employment with an eccentric young widow determined to regain her wealth. And when her mistress decides to answer an ad for a mail-order bride, Madd​y is dragged along for the ride. But as soon as they arrive out West, Maddy’s mistress abandons her to chase fortune further afield, and she is left to assume the widow’s name, position, and matrimonial prospects.

Penniless, and with no other recourse in the wilderness, Maddy must convince Kit she’s the wife he never knew he needed.

After visiting Montana in August 2022 (coincidentally when this was first published) I knew I absolutely had to read this book. While it’s been on my TBR for over a year, I’m so glad I waited for the audiobook because it is amazing. Seriously, the accents were all on point.
I’ve never read a romance where the fourteen year old little sister has more main character vibes than either of the love interests and I’m obsessed. Junebug is just so sassy! While all of her opinions are incredibly quotable, this one has to be my favourite: “Where was it written that she knew how to cook just because she was a girl? Nowhere, that was where.”
I’m a big fan of a soft-hearted love interest and Kit fit the bill perfectly. And he’s a reader: “Kit had a thing for books. And he had a thing for no one else touching them.” Honestly, same.
Maddie is plucky and courageous and deserves so much happiness. Every one of her and Kit’s interactions had me sighing and feeling butterflies. Although, I think this book may have given me a foot fetish haha.
I’ve never read a mail order bride romance but the spouse advertisements Maddie and Kit wrote for each other had me absolutely swooning! Can’t say the same for those written by Junebug, but hers are hilarious and so true!
I think the best part of this book is the incredible familial bonds the McBrides share and I can’t wait for Marrying Off Morgan McBride and the rest of the series.

Thank you NetGalley for this audiobook, I loved it! Was very very slow burn, but the characters are all so sweet and lovely and I adored the Montana western setting. I am absolutely putting the rest of this series on my to read list! I really enjoyed the narrator for this as well, and this is one of the first audiobooks I really enjoyed listening to.
