Jane Middlebourne needs a way out. In 1891, life in New York is unforgiving for a young woman with no prospects, especially when her family wants nothing to do with her. So when Jane discovers an ad for a mail-order bride needed in Bitter Springs, Wyoming, she responds with a hopeful heart.



Rancher Morgan Longstreet is in want of a wife who will be his partner at Morning Star, someone who will work beside him and stand by him. His first impression of the fair and fragile Jane is that she is not that woman. But when she sets out to prove him wrong, the secrets he cannot share put into jeopardy every happiness they hope to find...

    As a big Jo Goodman fan, I was disappointed by this book. The third in the Bitter Springs series, "In Want of a Wife" is a bit of a snooze fest. Rancher Morgan Longstreet and mail-order bride Jane Middlebourne entered a marriage of convenience - clearly obvious because there was absolutely no chemistry between them. Rabbit and Finn, two mischievous but endearing characters in Bitter Springs, made this story bearable. And the intrigue in the last four chapters saved this book from being a total waste.

    I really liked the story and the characters were great only thing I didn't approve of and thought unessary was Gods name in vain that made it trashy.

    My Booklist review:Goodman’s (True to the Law, 2013) latest Bitter Springs, Wyoming, romance delves into family bonds in the Old West. When red-haired rancher Morgan Longstreet advertises back east for a wife, Jane Middlebourne, the unwanted, orphaned relative of a wealthy family in New York City, agrees to marry him. Her first surprises are his ginger hair and his tight-lipped attitude about his family; he is surprised by how she doesn’t look anything like the picture she sent, a picture her cousin surreptitiously substituted in Jane’s letter to him. Despite those glitches, they manage to get along and come together, each appreciating the other’s frankness and dry sense of humor, until Morgan’s long-forgotten brothers threaten to bring past trouble into the present. Goodman’s fans will be thrilled with this newest story, a solid romance which achingly depicts, in her laconic style, the unsettling beginnings of a mail-order marriage. Once again, her meticulous research, signature eye for the telling detail, and ear for humor in a desperate time shine. — Pat Henshaw
