Alaine attempts to help her family by getting a pro bono lawyer ~ Forbes Guidry.Forbes is put in a difficult position. He stands the chance of losing things that are precious to him ~ his lifelong ties with his family and his newly developed feelings for Alaine. Will God intervene and show him a way to keep both?My ThoughtsFrom start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed this book ~ I even stayed up far too late in an attempt to read it in just one night. Dacus has created some wonderful characters that pull you into the story ~ from the immediate family members to the diverse ethnic community that is threatened with demolition.Truthfully, Im a little saddened that it is the last book in the series, because there are other family members that I would enjoy reading more about! A Case for Love is the third book in the Brides of Bonneterre series by Kaye Dacus, following Stand-in Groom and Menu for Romance. If you enjoy historical fiction, Kaye also has another wonderful series set in the early 1800s ~ the Ransome Trilogy. The first book in that series, Ransomes Honor is currently available and the second Ransomes Crossing ~ I loved the first book so much Ive already pre-ordered the second! Be sure to visit Kayes website where she shares writing tips and insights. Her site is one that I visit almost daily and really enjoy the various series that she has provided.
Wonderful book! I have enjoyed every book in this series and can only say "please write more!" Forbes is probably my favorite hero among the three books, even though I love all three of the men. One can really tell that Kaye Dacus has done research into the workings of a law office and court; television reporting and the goings on behind the scenes of the running of the television station. The characters are so real and so much like friends that I would like to meet. I don't want to part with them! If you are looking for real people with real situations; some problems(not large hang-ups);beautiful spine-tingling-bring-a-smile-on-your-face-and-leave-it-there-for-the-next-two-days clean romance then this series is for you!
The characters had interesting occupations and the story was interesting. It was nice to see some of the characters from the first two books as well. I enjoyed this and wouldn't mind seeing more in this series.
