BOOK REVIEW- Handpicked Husband (Texas Grooms)
BOOK REVIEW- Handpicked Husband (Texas Grooms)- Can she drive away not one, but three suitors? Free-spirited photographer Regina Nash is ready to try. But unless she marries one of the gentlemen her grandfather has sent for her inspection, she'll lose custody of her nephew. So she must persuade them—and Adam Barr, her grandfather's envoy—that she'd make a thoroughly unsuitable wife.
Adam isn't convinced. Regina might be unconventional, but she has wit, spirit and warmth. His job was to make sure Regina chose from the men he escorted to Texas—not to marry her himself! Can they overcome the secrets in her past, and the shadows in his, to find a perfect future together? AMAZON
I've been wanting to read this one for awhile and it didn't disappoint. It was definitely different as the book blurb suggested. A few things in the story were somewhat predictable but I liked how it got there. The rest of Regina's hijinks's were just fun. Adam had a job to do and he was as unmovable about it as a mountain. That still didn't stop Regina from pushing. The very last thing that she wanted was a husband. Freedom is what she had fought for and finally gained. Freedom with her beloved nephew, Jack. Regina/Reggie was quite the clever lady and her reluctant suitors were so different from each other too. This story made me smile often but also caused some some lumps in the throat a few times too.
For those who want to know, there is scripture in the story but not so much as to overtake the story. I think that even non-Christians might enjoy this book.
