At Love's Bidding by Regina Jennings

I, Halita Wilson received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. 

From the back of the book:

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 furious family, her grandfather tracks it to the Missouri Ozarks and makes an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house if they promise not to sell anything until he arrives.

Upon their arrival, however, they discover their new business doesn't deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its manager, ruggedly handsome Wyatt Ballentine, is frustrated to discover his fussy new bosses don't know a thing about the business he's single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more cattle than they can count--but no mysterious painting--Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and salvage a bad situation getting worse.


I have to be honest and say that at first I had a hard time getting into the book but I pushed on. Now I can't put the book down. I am currently on Chapter 20 but decided to go ahead and place my review. It took me until about Chapter 6 to get into the storyline. Once I reached this point, I read from chapter 6 to chapter 19 in the span of about three hours which is a HUGE deal for me. 

I struggle with reading because I usually end up with re-reading the same paragraph over and over again. 

I at first didn't like Wyatt Ballentine at first but he has won over my heart as I continue to read this beauty written by the amazingly talented Regina Jennings. Miranda Wimplegate has even had me laughing in certain parts of the book. This book came to me at a time when I was considering with my family running a farm and realizing I had no idea about doing it so Miranda's reaction to the chicken spoke volumes to me. 

I can't wait to finish this book but I would HIGHLY recommend reading this book. It's such a treat and my first read by Regina Jennings. I give the book 5 stars. 

Now my review on Regina Jennings herself:

Regina Jennings is beautiful, talented and down to earth. She really takes times to develop her characters and to build the story around them. She even takes time to make pinterest boards based on who she sees as the Characters in her mind. I have a big feeling that Regina Jennings is going to be a favorite for me.
