sandy c4 Stars Out Of 5Sixty Acres and a BrideJanuary 26, 2021sandy cI really enjoyed this author. I have read a number of her books. Rosa was shown to be a compassionate and hard working woman. True to her ethnic background. The hero,I liked him too!
Little Miss Bookworm3 Stars Out Of 5An interesting twist to a biblical storyFebruary 28, 2017Little Miss BookwormQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sixty Acres and a Bride is loosely based on the Biblical story of Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz. Rosa Garner travels from Mexico to Caldwell County, Texas with her mother-in-law Louise in 1878. It is a classic "fish out of water" story as Rosa tries to establish a home in a community that isanything, but welcoming. She suffered numerous losses in her life, but is a combination of grit and vulnerability. Weston Garner is the epitome of the cowboy hero. His willingness to help those in need, help to bolster his personality. Both characters are scarred from prior marriages and are afraid to open their hearts to the possibility of finding love again.
I wanted to like this book with an unconventional heroine, but there were some problems. Despite a few humorous moments, I did not like how Rosa is ignorant of the way a proper lady should behave. I also thought there would be a little more backstory toher life in Mexico. While Rosa and Weston are interesting characters, I did not feel like the romance between them was developed enough. On more than one occasion, I wanted to shake some sense into the two of them.
Overcoming fears and embracing the future are two main themes in Sixty Acres and a Bride. It is full of romance, drama, humor, and danger that keep a reader hooked until the end. A solid start for Regina Jennings debut novel, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the "Ladies of Caldwell County" series.

The author does a wonderful job in bringing her characters to life. This is one of those books that draws you and doesn't let go, even for a moment. I chose a busy time of year to read this novel and it drove me nuts that my reading time was interrupted. I found myself slipping away for a moment or two to read another chapter.
If you are not familiar with Regina Jennings work, you are in or a fun surprise. She includes a little bit of everything in the story.
I especially enjoyed Rosa with her love of life. Even when she didn't fit in, she pushed onward and made the best of the situations.
I highly recommend Sixty Acres and a Bride for anyone who likes historical, romantic fiction.
