SIXTY ACRES AND A BRIDE
Jennings’ characters are well defined and thoughtfully planned out. Her historical details are rich and hearty without being over the top. Her writing will appeal to fans of Tamera Alexander.
Rosa Garner has returned to Texas a widow. Her mother-in-law is with her, not by choice, but for survival. Upon returning, she has found her renters gone and the county demanding money she doesn’t have for back taxes. Weston Garner is trying to move on from his lost love. He doesn’t want to get involved with another woman, he just wants to take care of his family and the ranch. His world is turned upside down when he meets Rosa, his cousin’s widow. Will Rosa and Weston solve both of their problems with a marriage of convenience? (BETHANY HOUSE, Feb., 368 pp., $14.99)
