Only When the Loon Sings by Beverly Wells

Searching for true happiness, as well as escape from a controlling family, Morgan Prescott answers a Brides Wanted ad and leaves New York City's high society life for the wilds of Washington Territory. Her spirit and intelligence carry her through the shocks that await her--streets of ankle-deep mud, life in a one-room cabin, the hazards of cooking--but they are no help when she loses her heart to the one man she can't have.

Private investigator Luke Kincaid, a major stockholder in the Union Pacific Railroad, goes undercover as a logging camp foreman to apprehend the railroad's saboteurs. All he needs is a mock wife to strengthen his act, but once he agrees to Morgan filling the role, he finds himself longing for much more--a love he's forbidden to accept or give.

Reviewer: Fashionta
I like the concept of a mail order bride and this book excited me with the twist as the mail order bride wasn’t the typical stereotype. I fell in love with this book, I loved the characters and the way book was written.

The only thing I hated about this book was that the author took creative license with naming the disease ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) when the disease was named that a few years later after the story took place. I prefer books to be more accurate then changing the facts to suit the book. I have to give this book 4 stars.
