    1. There really is a lot of good here. It might be the best-researched book I’ve read from this line. I sometimes have a problem with these Love Inspired Historical books because they are set in such small, isolated locations and because of that sometimes they drag – but this one never did.However… this book reads like it was written in the 1950s! The misogyny. The dozens of nasty references to fair-haired women (in fact, the moment the sister is introduced, her blonde hair is used as a short [...]

    2. I liked this book but had a hard time getting into the time period I guess I'm not really into historical type stories but I know my daughter will enjoy this book.

    3. This is a frontier town story with quite a domestic feel. A young man has opened a shop in a new town which, striving for respectability, makes shopkeepers sign contracts that they are wed or will wed within thirty days of opening. As our hero has a fiancée in New York this poses no problem. Only, the wrong sister steps off the train. She has to explain that her parents died, her older sister wed someone else, and she has come to try to uphold the bargain. Some fun twists and turns follow, so j [...]

    4. Can you imagine the anticipation that Blake Lathrope is experiencing as he meets the train carrying his beloved Linda on, only her sister Audrey appears, she is lovely, but not Linda. Audrey knows her sister has left Blake in the lurch as he has agreed to stay in a town, Whisper Creek, and he needs to be married, or he looses his new store.We go through this story with each member of this, married in name only, couple, and each thinking the other wishes Blake was married to Linda. Will Linda the [...]

    5. 3.5 starsThis is a cute book about a woman willing to sacrifice everything to fix her sisters mistakes. Audrey is a woman of depth and character. She is overshadowed by her flirtatious sister. Most men are blindsided by Linda, and Audrey is overlooked.I liked the story. I wish Blake didn't spend so much time wallowing over Linda and that Audrey wasn't so understanding. There were a lot of missed opportunities to really make the best of the situation. The best part is when the truth was forced up [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this story, though I would have liked Blake to have been stronger in the ending. I loved Audrey! The ending was good, but I didn't like how Audrey and Blake handled things.4.5 stars

    7. This story with its well written natural flow pulled me into the world of Whisper Creek and held me captive until the very end. And I didn't want it to be done, I wasn't ready to leave Blake and Audrey and the new life they were starting.My heart broke a bit for both them at the beginning of the story with the thoughtless actions of Audrey's sister and the consequences of Audrey's selfless, sacrificing yet brave actions. The author draws the clear picture of the agony and disappointment Blake an [...]

    8. Wow, what a great story. Blake is engaged to Linda but she marries another and tells her sister Audrey that she should marry Blake if she's so worried about him. Audrey is always taking care of others. When she finds that Blake is about to loose his store and all that he has, Audrey follows her sisters advice and proposes marriage to Blake. There are a variety of things they go through that make the story a page turner and quick read. Loved it!

    9. Interesting idea but being from Wyoming I was lost immediately with the geographical reference which I know doesn't exist. Some of the details were completely unbelievable such as how easy it was for a young struggling businessman to buy multiple train tickets. The characters were nicely drawn although Linda was very one dimensional. An okay read for a Sunday afternoon but not a must read.

    10. For the genre, it was a good fast read.[Spoiler]The dramatic return of the flighty sister as the impetus to lead to the resolution was annoyingly predictable.

    11. This is the first book in the Stand-In Brides Series. This book is well written and heart warming. I know you will really enjoy it.Audrey Prescott knows what it is to plan to marry and be left at the alter so when her sister runs off and marries another Audrey goes out of Wyoming to marry the man her sister left high and dry. She has been writing to him in her sister's place and the last letter tells of how he has signed a contract that he must marry within thirty days of opening his new store. [...]

    12. This was just odd for a romance. I understand Audrey's desire to help Blake out when her sister abandons him, but they kept acting like ending the marriage would be no problem. That did not seem to fit the historical time period at all. Unfortunately, Blake's falling in love with her felt an awful lot like a rebound because not that much time passes and he had been in love with her sister. They each do a lot of guilt tripping because Blake feels disloyal when he starts liking Audrey. And Audrey [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this one. Audrey was a great heroine - the sort of person that is often taken for granted in real life, so I loved that she got a chance to shine and was appreciated by Blake in this book. (And I actually think whoever did the illustration for the cover read the bookor got a decent description.)

    14. Great historical romanceWhat a wonderful story. I found myself drawn into the story of Audrey and Blake from the first pages. Their story was unique in so many ways and the ending was great.

    15. Got to say I love everything I have read from Dorothy Clark, this did not disappoint. Can't wait to read the next one.

    16. I’ve been reading a lot of marriage of convenience stories lately but this one was so sweet! I really found Audrey’s character to be perhaps the sweetest I’ve read in a while. I love how she gave up everything to help Blake out when he was in a bind. And the way he went on to take such good care of her in return was so wonderful. I love how Clark provided just enough conflict to keep the story moving without dwelling on it too much. And I loved the ending so much.I received a copy of this [...]

    17. I have to say this was a surprisingly good read. I wasn't sure what to expect but it's a new take on the mail-order bride theme. Fans of sweet romances will find this one great. I loved the complete list of characters, even found the town to be well written. I do question some things about the founder but that's not a major issue for reading the story. This story is about Blake and Audrey but you'll want to continue reading the series,STAND-IN BRIDES, because you'll want to know how the town gro [...]

    18. Linda and Aubrey are sisters, but they couldn't be more different. Blake met the two sisters and proposed to Linda, whom he'd fallen in love with. But once he's gone, Linda loses interest and Aubrey continues writing to him, but signs the letters as Linda. When Linda runs off to marry another man, Aubrey goes to meet Blake as his substitute wife so he doesn't lose his business. But Blake is still in love with Linda, so things got off to a very rocky start.I love historical fiction and mail-order [...]

    19. One of my favorite genres to read is an historical romance…a little romance and a little history. Dorothy Clark’s “His Substitute Wife” had a little of both. The story is set in Whisper Creek, Wyoming in 1868. Blake Lathrop has come to the little town to start a business…a business that has strings attached to the contract. Blake must marry within a short period of time in order to keep his business. He has sent for Linda Prescott, his fiancée, to meet him there. When his fiancée ste [...]

    20. I loved this historical romance. Watching a marriage of convenience blossom into a sweet love story is always something I enjoy, and this one did not disappoint me. What I liked: The historical facts about building a new town in the old west is awesome. I love the fact that there are only two women in the town when Audrey gets there: an oriental washer woman and the town founder’s wife who is anxious for female companionship. This creates an interesting problem for Audrey since she has to soci [...]

    21. Questa è stata una lettura piacevole, ho deciso di votarla con 3 stelle perché non è un tipo di genere letterario, quello cristiano un po' ipocrita, che non amo particolarmente, però, rispetto ad altri romanzi simili, è stato il meno ridicolo.Molti utenti continuano a chiedere il clean love, secondo la mia opinione è comprensibile, poiché alcune letture sono troppo volgari, ma un pizzico di steamy non guasta, in quest'opera non esiste la passione, ma è comunque interessante, infatti, il [...]

    22. Audrey Prescott can not believe what she is about to offer her sisters fiancé. When things progress will she be able to keep her secret, help him with his store and be happy with their arrangement.Blake Latherop's world is about to be turned upside down. Audrey is not at all what he expected. Will he be able to come up with a plan for everyone to be happy?Clark does a good job in her character description and their dialogue. I loved the spunky yet venerable personality of Audrey. I enjoyed the [...]

    23. "Blake and Audrey are intelligent, resourceful characters. Linda is easy to dislike, but her nature is key to the plot. Audrey’s optimism and independence are bright spots in this non-typical marriage-of-convenience tale. There are several twists" (4 1/2 stars TOP PICK! @ RT Book Reviews).Miniseries: Stand-In Brides
