About the book:
Jenny Higgins is certain falling in love and finding a husband are matters of the mind. Her heart has other plans.
After their parents died, Jenny felt responsible for seeing that her two younger sisters were well taken-care of. Tipped off by an article naming Rocky Creek the town with the highest number of eligible bachelors, Jenny rolled into this Texas town with a clear objective: find suitable husbands for her two sister and then start fresh somewhere far, far away.
Jenny believe that women who fall in love at first sight often wish they’d taken a second look, so she diligently begins to follow all the rules set forth in her handy manual on how to land a husband.
But while Jenny is interviewing the less-than-promising candidates, her sisters are falling in love the old-fashioned way–with men of their choosing. And the longer Jenny stays, the more her sense of control slips away. The town isn’t living up to her expectations, her sisters are rebelling against her practical choices, and soon her own heart starts to betray her, as US Marshall Rhett Armstrong stirs emotions in her that weren’t part of her plan.
To relinquish her control to God and calm her restless spirit, she’ll need to give her foregone conclusions about marriage, love, and faith.
About the Author:
Margaret Brownley has penned more than twenty historical and contemporary novels. Her books have won numerous awards including the Reader’s Choice. Though successful, she decided to leave behind the secular publishing world to follow God’s will for her: to write inspirational fiction. Happily married to her real life hero, Margaret and her husband have three grown children and live in Southern California.
After reading A Lady Like Sarah, I just HAD to read this! I love the history elements, the spunk of the characters that Margaret creates and the wonderful love God that flows through her books. This one in particular certainly did not disappoint!
Through amazing ability, Margaret Brownley takes us on a whirl wind adventure ride as we read about Jenny’s matchmaking efforts for her siblings. All the while, God has other plans for this witty young woman. God’s plans for Jenny don’t really add up to her own, and it makes for a humorous, laugh out loud fun story.
Rhett’s character was charming. He was on the side of the law (of course, being a law man, he would HAVE to be!), but he was also on the side of Jenny….the side he didn’t want to be. But, ever the heroic man that he was, he was bound and determined to get on the side of Jenny that he DID want to be!
This is another 5 star historical read worth checking into! A sweet, laughable story of following God’s will for your life and forgiving the past, this story is for anyone, young and old! Definitely a wonderful book to get for someone as a Christmas gift if they like romantic, historical comedy.
