Book review: At Love’s Bidding by Regina Jennings
One look at the cover of At Love’s Bidding will tell you that this book is going to be fun, and author Regina Jennings does not disappoint. The contrast from Miranda Wimplegate’s life in an austere auction house in Boston to the hills of the Missouri Ozarks, where her family has purchased a livestock auction, makes for an absurd situation to begin with. Add to that a colorful cast of locals, and you are in for a delightful read.
Miranda was a very likable heroine, whose loyalty to her family carried her through difficulties she faced and decisions that she made. Wyatt Ballentine, hardworking and compassionate, struggled with his identity and expectations placed on him. He always had others’ best interests at heart. When Miranda and Wyatt finally figured out that each other were not the enemy, their mutual attraction was sweet. But they both were keeping secrets from each other, which threatened to drive them apart forever.
This is the second book of the Ozark Mountain Romance series, but it stands tall on its own. A few characters showed up from the previous book in the series, but anyone who hadn’t read that book wouldn’t have noticed.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and recommend it to those who like romance and historical fiction. It is a lot of fun, and will make you want to read the next one soon!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
