Litefuse Blog Tour: Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings


She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home... How Far Will She Go to Save It?

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. Read an excerpt.

My Review:

Regina has woven a delightful tale in this book. You will want to get lost in the lives of Rosa and Wes.
There is the dilemma of Rosa and her Mother-in-law Louise, trying to earn money enough to pay the taxes and keep their small 60 acres ranch. Rosa is a busy beaver and supposedly still in morning for her husband, they had been married a month, and her father-in-law who were killed in a mine collapse in Mexico.
You will Love the characters of Aunt Mary, and Uncle George and family. They welcome young Rosa with open arms...she married a Garner and she is now family. When she comes to town she puts a lot of people noses out of joint, including the gossipers at Church.
Loved when Louise sends Rosa in a last ditch attempt to save the Ranch to Wes...with reminding her of Ruth, Naomi and Boaz. This passage will end up haunting her. The Lord knew what he was doing, of course!
A really great fast read, enjoy!

I received this book from the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
