Marrying Walker McKay Reviews
Most of the time I love Lori Copeland's work, but every once in a while she writes a real humdinger and this goes in that category.Sara is a spoiled little rich girl. She's 18 yet acts like she's 12 for most of the book. All she's ever wanted was to be a wife and mother. When her overprotective tycoon father refuses the suit of every man she brings home ("no one is good enough for his sweet pea" - gag me now) she takes matters into her own hands and runs away to NYC. She dresses like a boy (because her tycoon father owns the railroad) in order not to be caught getting away and buys a ticket on the railroad. While en route to NYC she meets up with another young woman who is devastated and crying because she is being made to be a mail order bride by her parents. (They are poor and are basically farming her out for money) In a never before seen plot twist (you're shocked I know) Sara trades places with this other woman and travels to Wyoming to be said mail order bride. Sara plans on using this other woman's identity until she can get there, get settled and married and pregnant, thereby thinking her father can't make her come home, at which time she will only THEN tell her husband who she really is. (cue the eye roll)Walker is a well to do rancher in Wyoming. After being left at the altar he decides he is never going to get married. However, a freak accident involving a rampaging bull makes him change his mind, and he decides upon a mail order bride in order to "secure an heir" and continue his family lineage. His plan is to have a loveless marriage, produce and heir and maybe a spare and keep on rocking as he always has done before. No woman is going to make a fool of him again! (At this point I decided Walker is also 12 years old)Sara arrives, takes one look at Walker and decides she's head over heels in love. But since she knows nothing about running a household or even being a wife (her own mother died giving birth to her...sigh) she quickly makes a mess of most everything she attempts to do. But Walker overlooks most of it because, hey, she's a looker and he enjoys having a warm body in his bed at night, and besides, he has a housekeeper to run the ranch house anyway. At this point we throw in Walker's best friend Caleb, who keeps the books for the ranch. He's secretly stealing from Walker by doctoring the books. Sara realizes this because, whaddya know, she's a genius at math. She can't even boil water, but by golly the woman can do calculus in her head. Of course she tells Walker and of course Walker doesn't believe her because why would his best friend from the cradle steal from him?Just when you think it couldn't possibly get worse, the original mail order bride shows up in town. She's changed her mind and wants Walker after all. But wait! Sara has just found out she's pregnant! Cue the big dramatic scene in which Walker finds out! Watch him send the original bride home packing! See Walker disown Sara and refuse to talk to her! It truly became eye rolling at this point and I only kept reading just to see how cheesy it was going to get. There's a dramatic scene with Sara confronting Caleb on her way out of town, Caleb kidnapping her to "shut her up" with the subsequent Walker-coming-to-his-senses rescue.The entire book read like a really bad teenage romance. I know LC is capable of much better work and that's the only reason I gave this a 2 star rating.
Enjoyed It!!Sara wanted to be married,have a family Forever!She meets Olivia on the train. They decide to switch places and she continue as her to marry Walker,because Olivia was in love with someone else.I loved all the ups and downs of the story. Its sad, happy,all emotions, they have great sex scenes.He needs an heir, but he keeps the past and lets it interfere in their lives.She loves him with all her heart.Then Olivia comes back, what a PIA.Walker loves Sara too, but it takes him awhile to even know it himself.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the emotions and bumps and dips in the journey. I liked all the characters and didn't see it coming with Olivia. Totally blindsided. What a B. I felt what Sara felt and was by turns exasperated, angry, sad, happy and ecstatic. I would definitely read this book again. This book is a keeper. The ending was perfect and left a smile on my face after reading it. It was page-turning and aggravating, delicious and soothing. I loved every minute spent reading it and couldn't put it down. Enjoy!
