Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings ~ Litfuse Blog Tour & Review

Sixty Acres and a Bride

My Review: A well written tale that only got better, the more I read!

Sixty Acres and a Bride is something of "a marriage of convenience" tale, and while it does have elements of the Biblical story of Ruth interwoven into the tale, I would say that this is a whole different story. While the Ruth influence is evident, I wouldn't recommend going into this book and expecting an exact re-telling, matching up the characters and so on. Sixty Acres and a Bride is a totally fresh tale filled with moments of humor and intensity, about overcoming fears and embracing the future.

Sixty Acres and a Bride was a slow starter for me, but that changed the more I read. Getting to know the characters took a bit of time, but they were so well done! It took awhile for me to realize that both the main characters were pretty reserved people, so it made perfect sense that they took some time to get to know. One of the things that I liked most about this story was how I got to see how the two different cultures clashed, and how it could cause some problems--some of them humorous :)

Overall, this was a lovely read, that I would happily recommend to others. Ms. Jennings does a wonderful job, paying close attention to imagery with vivid descriptions. I definitely be picking up more books from Ms. Jennings in the future.

About the Book:
She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home... How Far Will She Go to Save It?

With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.

Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention.

Where some offer help with dangerous strings attached, only one man seems honorable. But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future. Read an excerpt: http://ow.ly/9sK2C.
