Taking advantage of his strong resemblance to his brother, Johnny assumes Mark’s identity. Soon Johnny discovers that Mark had been corresponding with a widow named Sally in St. Louis, and she’s en route to be a mail-order bride to Mark.

A new twist on the Mail Order Bride packed with a bunch of lies that spiral out of control, and in the end what is the truth. We also have a western story as we are on ranches spanding from Colorado to Texas, along with gunfights.
When the book opens we see what a bleak life Sally Golding is living, she barely exists, and falls in love with a man she has never met by mail. No wonder she was willing to leave St Louis behind and head to the unknown in Texas to marry Mark Paynter.
We meet Johnny Paynter as a friend tells him he is wanted for murder, and he takes his advice. They head to Texas and end up finding his brother’s body, and they bury Mark. Oh dear, we are getting deeper and deeper in lies. Johnny now takes Mark’s identity when he goes to town and people call him Mark.
Of course, he can’t keep on an even keel with these lies, and when he finds letters of the pending arrival of Sally, the next day. Now what? You can guess what is about to happen, or can you. What do you do with Sally?
This is a page turning read and I enjoyed the added twists of not knowing what was going to happen when the truth is revealed.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publish Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
