This is an extremely pleasant short story about two mature adults searching for their life partner.
The characters and story line are believable, the settings are also believable.There were a couple of things left hanging. I suppose that was to keep the story short. I wish it was longer so these areas could have been expounded upon, but also so that more of their history could be told. All in all, a great read!.

Text Order Bride by Kirsten Osbourne
Amanda lives in the same small Texas town she grew up in. After college she returned to help her mother before she passed on. Alone now she's considering maybe moving on. Her best friend Stephanie had married and moved to Wisconsin ten years earlier but Amanda didn’t foresee marriage in her future. She didn’t see much at all for her future besides teaching homemaking.

Jason is a Wisconsin dairy farmer. His pastor’s wife talks so highly about her friend back in Texas and she has given Jason her friends phone number to text her. He’s lonely and wants to settle down and have a family. So one lonely night he texts Amanda and that night changed his future forever.

This is a shorter story and things move pretty fast with the characters after the first night they meet via texting. I enjoyed the story.

A nicely written short story with believable characters. I especially enjoyed the modern twist of a mail-order-bride theme. Great idea.

A modern day fairy tale. Strange that her height was given as the reason she had never been in love. Being over 6ft myself it was never an issue. But then I was not concerned with height as much as attraction! I suppose her main reason may have been more religious although that is more hinted at than specifically noted. Overall a nice enough story.

A well told, but very much underwritten, story, Not much drama.

Ms. Osbourne never resolved the 'cabin fever' problem her heroine was having, it just melted away in a gauzy haze.

But the narrator was well conceived and interesting, her beau was a very different sort than the usual romance story swashbuckler, and I really believed the set-up. I just wish there were a few more bumps along the way to 'happily-ever-afterville.'

This is a short story about a girl who marries a farmer whom she has never met and with whom she has only communicated by email/text/phone. Although, the tale was a little unrealistic (in an old-fashioned way) and a bit too happily-ever-after, it was well structured and well written (with some spicy adult content) and I found it enjoyably rose-tinted. Whilst I very rarely read short stories, I found this a pleasant way to spend 45 minutes and not only will I seek out more work by this author, she can also be proud of the fact that, from now on, I will certainly entertain more short story reads.

A modern day short story version of a mail order bride made for a cute and different romance story. It was a fun read and I related to being tall and having to learn how to sew to make my own clothes so I wouldn't have to wear men's clothing all the time. Do be aware the wedding night sex makes this an adult book for reading.

This is a very sweet, short story .
The author very cleverly takes the reader from a modern beginning ..... through erotica, which was steamy but well written and totally relevant .....to an ‘old fashioned’ ending .It all fitted together perfectly, making it a good concise read.
If you enjoy a love story with a bit of spice ....don’t hesitant to read this.
