A Suitor for Jenny by Margaret Brownley


After their parents died, Jenny felt responsible for seeing that her two younger sisters were well taken-care of. Tipped off by an article naming Rocky Creek the town with the highest number of eligible bachelors, Jenny rolled into this Texas town with a clear objective: find suitable husbands for her two sister and then start fresh somewhere far, far away.

Jenny believe that women who fall in love at first sight often wish they’d taken a second look, so she diligently begins to follow all the rules set forth in her handy manual on how to land a husband.

But while Jenny is interviewing the less-than-promising candidates, her sisters are falling in love the old-fashioned way--with men of their choosing. And the longer Jenny stays, the more her sense of control slips away. The town isn’t living up to her expectations, her sisters are rebelling against her practical choices, and soon her own heart starts to betray her, as US Marshall Rhett Armstrong stirs emotions in her that weren’t part of her plan.

To relinquish her control to God and calm her restless spirit, she’ll need to give her foregone conclusions about marriage, love, and faith.

My take:~

Margaret Brownley’s second novel is a delightfully humourous read that easily holds its own alongside stories from Mary Connealy and Karen Witemeyer. With all the usual ingredients to keep historical fans in raptures, the witty repartee between list writing Jenny and exasperated US Marshal Rhett Armstrong adds that little bit extra for those who love smiling their way through their romance. With fun and feisty characters, a fresh take on husband hunting and an attractive Marshal determined to keep his town in order, Margaret has produced an appealing and memorable story which will leave readers wanting to visit Rocky Creek again and again. For those tempted to skim over the quotes at the beginning of each chapter, don’t! A Suitor for Jenny is worth reading for those alone, making the story itself the perfect icing on the cake!
