A friend recommended this series a LONG time ago and I finally found one of the books. Ivy and her sister Mattie leave their coastal town in Maine and travel to California after seeing an advertisement for women to come west to be brides. Both girls were eager for a chance to start over in life after their family financial troubles, their father's death, and Ivy's boyfriend leaves her for a life at sea.

Single girls from the east coast move to the California mine fields seeking husbands. The series Brides of Wildcat County tells each brides story. Audacious: Ivy's Story is about a quiet proper school teacher who writes adventure stories she sells to a Boston paper featuring the daring, talented Audacious. Ivy's writing career is discovered and her first love appears in town which causes a scandal. This a very light love story.
This book is probably the dumbest in the entire series. Ivy is such a pushover, and she just gets on my nerves. It's very annoying.

And seriously. Her pen name is Audacia El Dorado. Really.

I can't move on to the next book quick enough
A sweet little YA historical romance, this is a quick read. I enjoyed it for what it was and might consider reading others in the series.
