Heath is suspicious about a women in this likable episode
7 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Heath's friend, Jim North, sent off for a mail-order bride and she, Nancy, has arrived in Stockton. The letters the woman wrote advised that she wants to move to Stockton, marry Jim and teach at the local school.

Heath becomes suspicious of the Nancy at their first meeting. Seems that she looks like someone Heath has seen before but Nancy advises that they never met. After being told that she will be the new school teacher she becomes unsettled and says she has changed her mind about teaching.

Jim is so smitten with Nancy that he cannot see that she is acting much different than the letters indicated. And when a man appears at the door requesting to purchase land the viewers know that the story has taken a nasty turn. It will be up to Heath to find the truth about Nancy which will cause his life to be in danger.

There was little going on during the show until the last few scenes making it seem slow. Even with the slow action it was a likable watch for the viewer. Most notable for the guest actors that were perfectly cast in this episode.
