In Search of a Groom
After a life of drudgery on her family's farm, Cassie Lynn Vickers relishes her freedom working in town as a paid companion for feisty Mrs. Flanagan. When her father suddenly demands she come home, she has no choice. Unless she can find a husband. If only she could convince handsome town newcomer Riley Walker to marry her…
Riley is on the run. He's desperate to keep his niece and nephew safe from his crooked half brother. But a delay in Turnabout, Texas, shows him everything he didn't know he was missing: home, family—and Cassie Lynn. Can he find a way to become her Prince Charming…and build a real family with the children and Cassie Lynn?
It was so easy to immerse myself into the world of Turnabout, Texas. I found myself reading the story where ever I went, since I couldn't put it down. There's something sweet, innocent, and hopeful about the story. The west is still young, people are working hard, most of them have respect for others, and the kindness overflows.
Both Cassie Lynn and Riley have a deep faith in God, believing that He will provide and guide them. In times of trouble, as well when in peace, with a thankful heart they prayed to the Lord.
The relationship between Cassie Lynn and Riley seems to be taking time, when in reality, it was just a few days. But they had their time to get to know each other. I enjoyed how their feelings grew, got deeper with time, and the sweet moments with just the two of them were adorable.
How the tension, danger, and fear was built through the tale was clever. It gave another dimension to the story and more into the plot.
Genuine, sincere, and endearing story, with life and love, and guiding faith
