#BookReview: For the Record by Regina Jennings

29 Dec


I love reading Regina Jennings’ stories because I know they will bring smiles and laughter, and For the Record did just that! While it is the third book in the Ozark Mountain Romance series, this novel reads as a stand-alone story.

Rich characterization and romantic chemistry bring Joel and Betsy’s story to life, and I delighted in their antics. The adventures in Pine Gap continue as a thread of mystery weaves its way through the narrative, adding an element of intrigue to the entertaining story line. I thoroughly enjoyed this cleverly crafted tale and can’t wait to read more!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.


About the book:


Betsy Huckabee might be a small-town girl, but she has big-city dreams. Writing for her uncle’s newspaper will never lead to independence, and the bigger newspapers don’t seem interested in the Hart County news. Trying a new approach, Betsy pens a romanticized serial for the ladies’ pages, and the new deputy provides the perfect inspiration for her submissions. She’d be horrified if he read her breathless descriptions of him, but these articles are for a newspaper far away. No one in Pine Gap will ever know.

Deputy Joel Puckett didn’t want to leave Texas, but this job in tiny Pine Gap is his only shot at keeping his badge. With masked marauders riding every night, his skills and patience are tested, but even more challenging is the sassy journalist lady chasing him.

At Love's Bidding

At Love’s Bidding by Regina Jennings

Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/1QJGxOK


She sells priceless antiques. He sells livestock by the pound. Is he really the man to make a bid for her heart?

After helping her grandfather at their Boston auction house, Miranda Wimplegate discovers she’s accidentally sold a powerful family’s prized portrait to an anonymous bidder. Desperate to appease the people who could ruin them forever, they track it to the Missouri Ozarks and make an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house and all its holdings before the painting can move again.

Upon crossing the country, however, Miranda and her grandfather discover their new auction house doesn’t deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its frustratingly handsome manager, Wyatt Ballentine, is annoyed to discover his fussy new bosses don’t know a thing about the business he’s single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more heads of cattle than they can count—but no mysterious painting—Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and prevent a bad situation from getting worse.


My thoughts:

At Love’s Bidding is a cleverly crafted historical romance! Book 2 in the Ozark Mountain Romance series, this novel reads as a stand-alone story. However, those who have read A Most Inconvenient Marriage will enjoy revisiting some beloved characters.

I delighted in Miranda Wimplegate and Wyatt Ballentine and their auction house adventures! The thread of mystery that brings these two characters together adds an interesting element to the story line and to the romance that develops. While Miranda and Wyatt’s story is filled with humor, it also shares some poignant moments as well.

At Love’s Bidding boasts its own unique charm, as only Regina Jennings can create. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to more!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.  All thoughts expressed are my own.

Review: A Most Inconvenient Marriage

A Most Inconvenient Marriage

A Most Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings

With few options of her own, nurse Abigail Stuart agrees to marry her patient, a gravely wounded soldier calling himself Jeremiah Calhoun. They arrange a quick ceremony before he dies, giving Abigail the rights to his Ozark farm and giving Jeremiah the peace of knowing someone will care for his ailing sister after he’s gone–a practical solution for both of them.
After the war, Abigail fulfills her side of the bargain–until the real Jeremiah Calhoun shows up, injured but definitely alive, and wastes no time in challenging Abigail’s story. Abigail is flummoxed. After months of claiming to be his widow, how can she explain that she’s never seen this Jeremiah Calhoun before? How can she convince him that she isn’t trying to steal his farm? And will she find a way to stay, even though this practical arrangement has turned into a most inconvenient marriage?


“Sometimes the best gifts aren’t convenient at the time.” 

I was immediately drawn to this book, first by the cover and then by the title.  As I read the back cover, I knew this was a story I would love! 

I enjoy Civil War era stories and I was quickly captivated by this one.  The historical details are rich and the Ozark Mountain setting is vivid.  Abigail Stuart and Jeremiah Calhoun are engaging characters and their story, with its unique circumstances, is full of emotion, from heart-wrenching to heartwarming.  This delightful tale has it all- trials and tribulations, humor and hijinks, faith and forgiveness, and a stirring romance.  I loved A Most Inconvenient Marriage and can’t wait to read more from this incredibly talented author! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Bethany House Blogger Reviewer program.  All thoughts expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
