Looking for a book where a man & his two children live out west(Montana, Wyoming, somewhere) & he sends away for a mail-order bride. They correspond & he's expecting a hard-working woman, etc. On the trip out west she dies & a young pampered woman takes her place. There is a chemistry btwn this new woman & the man but despite his feelings he needs a hard-working wife. So he sends her home, but she doesn't go, she stays in town & starts a hat and/or dress shop.... Cute story - tried to recommend it to someone & must've donated it & can't remember the title to save me! THANKS!
