I have to admit: this wasn't my favourite book in this series. It wasn't even my second- or third-favourite book in this series. It may have been my least-favourite, which is saying a lot when the top-rated book came across as mediocre at best!

Ivy is a very, very, very sad teenage girl recovering from a scandal in Maine and trying to make her way in a mining town in California, when the opportunity for fame and fortune sneaks up right out of nowhere. Soon she has an alter ego, Audacia El Dorado

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.
