"A Suitor for Jenny" by Margared Brownley
"The Bible says that no matter your plans, it's the Lord's plan that prevails." pg. 175
Rocky Creek, TX, will never be the same. "Colonel" Jenny Higgins loves her sisters and promised her father she would take care of them, so she brought them to Rocky Creek to find husbands. Can manuals give the right advice in husband selection? Or should they consult God and His plans for their lives? And, what would happen to all of Jenny's plans if her sisters followed their own hearts and strayed from her carefully laid path? Jenny is also alone, but feels certain she can take care of herself and doesn't need a husband. Until Rhett steps into her path. Will love find a way, or will the past haunt both of them? "Guilt was more isolating than prison bars, self-punishment the worst possible kind." pg. 306
I was privileged to receive a copy of this book through the Book Sneeze program, and totally enjoyed it. The cover was the first thing to draw me in, then the cast of colorful characters and scenes carried me along to the end. I was cheering for all of them, wondering how each bit of the story would be worked out. I had never read anything by Margaret Brownley, but am now a big fan. Her books are on my gift and recommendation lists!
