really liked it

Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings is exactly the type of book my mother would have loved, and I think it was for that reason I picked it up to read. That and the beautiful cover, and I know you are not supposed to judge a book by it's cover! In this case, though, I am glad I did.

I loved the setting of Prairie Lea, Texas for this book. It was a place of love and romance, but also a rough town where people just tried to survive. And like today, many were just after their own agenda. I saw in this book the re-telling of the story of Ruth and Naomi. I laughed at the antics of Rosa, the main character, just trying to fit into a brand new culture after leaving her native Mexico. She was a character I just rooted for and wanted the best for. I love it when an author can make me feel so attached to the characters. She also created a “good” bad guy in Jay Tillerton. Now there is someone you love to hate!

Reading stories set in the old west makes me both wish I could have lived back then, and very glad that I didn’t. Sixty Acres and a Bride comes highly recommended from me, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

This book was provided to me free from the publisher, in exchange for my honest review.
