book review: "sixty acres and a bride" by regina jennings

"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."

You can read an excerpt from the book and read other reviews in the tour. You can buy the book and learn more about Regina.

I really liked this book! I'll definitely be reading her next book! I liked the parallel to Ruth and Naomi - I've read other books based on the story but Regina was able to put her own spin on it. There were times when I thought things were moving a little slow but I was soon swept back up into Rosa and Weston's journey. One of my favorite scenes was when Weston said he was taking the canopy off of his bed. He knew Rosa was claustrophobic and though things between them were still rocky, he was preparing. I thought it very sweet :) I liked Weston. Though he had his own issues to sort through, he wanted to take care of Rosa. Overall a good book!
