The story is easy to read, but it did not grab me quickly as others have. This was not my favorite book but I still enjoyed the Christian message and the love story that developed.
Regina has two weeks to pick and marry one of the three men that her grandfather has chosen for her. So that means that she has two weeks to get rid of her potential suitors! Adam is a New York lawyer who was wrongly convicted and wants to clear his name. Regina's Grandfather is the only person who believed in his innocence, so when he asks him to oversee the plan to get Regina married, he can't say no. But he finds Reggie crossing his mind more and more often...
What a hilarious adventure! I just loved how Reggie tried to get rid of all of her suitors, she was a genius and the things she did were a riot! There was a whole cast of characters, and they all interacted well. I was really surprised with just how much I liked this book and how I came to really like and admire a character that I wasn't sure that I would ever like.
This book was just delightful and possibly my favorite from this author, there was so much story to this book, even though it doesn't look like it's that long. The characters were well developed and the plot was so original, I loved how unpredictable many of the elements were!
This was also a really poignant read as well, with Reggie having a secret of her own, and the story of her past and how she needed to realize that God forgives all. I loved how thought provoking it was, and I kept asking myself "What if she'd done this instead?" Or "What if he hadn't reacted like that?" Because while they could have made different choices it all worked out for the best.
Overall and well written and satisfying read!
I received this ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Handpicked Husband by Winnie Griggs Texas Grooms Book 1 Adam Barr wants to find who set him up and clear his name. He had been an up and coming lawyer and ended up falsely accused and spent the past six years in prison, losing everything. The one person who stood by him the whole time was Judge Madison. So when the Judge asked Adam to take three men from Philadelphia to Turnabout, Texas so his granddaughter could choose one to marry….he did. Of course nothing in his life was ever easy and this hoyden surely wouldn’t make it any easier.
Regina “Reggie” Nash was happy. At twenty-three years of age she had decided to be a spinster aunt to young Jack. She has been taking care of him since Patricia, her step-sister passed away. Since the passing of her brother-in-law four months ago...Reggie has taken of full responsibility for the six year old. Telling her grandfather that she wanted to adopt Jack seemed like a non-issue until he sent the handsome Adam to Texas with an ultimatum. Marry one of the three men Adam had with him or lose Jack.
I enjoy all of this author’s books, this one included. It made me laugh and even brought a few tears. She brings her characters to life. Three men who really don’t want to get married but have been offered a deal too good to refuse. A young woman who has her own secrets and reasons not to marry. And a man carrying a chip on his shoulder with revenge on his mind. Some of the towns people come to life as well. The gossip and snooty woman who thinks no man can refuse her. Looking forward to the rest of this historical series. **Received through NetGalley for review
