Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for A Bargained-For Bride by Marcia Lynn McClure. I'm doing a review. If you'd like to see the other stops on the tour, check out the schedule below. Don't forget to enter the draw at the bottom of the post.
Excerpt “You’re the sweetest girl in Mourning Dove Creek, you know?” Jack mumbled as he paused in kissing Jilly a moment. Jilly smiled. “And you’re the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek, you know,” she flirted in return. Jack smiled. “I do know,” he said. Jilly giggled. Jack Taylor was so predictable—and a little conceited. He really did think he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove—and he was, for the most part. Secretly, however, if Jilly ever allowed herself to be completely honest about it (which she tried to avoid), there was one other man in Mourning Dove who always crossed her mind when the subject of the handsomest man in town arose. Yet there was no lingering
on thinking of that man—no sirree! Not for a moment! Not for any reason—ever. And so Jilly just kept telling Jack that he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek. Besides, it was almost true—being that the other man lived outside of town and not right in town the way Jack did
This was a sweet, simple romantic novella in a Western setting. It’s a great book for a quick read, knowing you are going to get a happy ending. I always like that the man who gets the girl is such an honourable fellow.
The story is written simply, and the plot is easy to follow. The characters are well-defined and for the most part, the pace is good. My favourite character was Boone Ramsay who was a gentleman through and through. He is kind, caring and gentle, putting Jilly’s needs before his own pleasures. I wish all men were like him.
This book makes a good break from more intense reads. I gave it three stars.
I received a free copy of this book for my fair and honest review. All thoughts are my own.
