It is a rare occasion in which I finish a book (Well, technically a Novella) and feel at peace. In other words, don’t feel like the story ended too soon or wasn’t enough. This one gave me that feeling. Not only did it give me a feeling of peace after reading it, I was happy. Super happy for Jill and Boone, at the transitions they had adjusted to and the growing they had done as well as pleased with the way the story unwound itself. Marcia Lynn McClure brought out deep thought and introspection in a very pleasing manner. After reading A Bargained For Bride I slept peacefully and dreamt dreams of a woman who appreciated the love within her own life. If you are looking for a book to read and don’t have much time, this book is perfect. It will remind you how you truly feel about your loved one and give the desire for insight into the decisions of another time and place.
I truly enjoyed this book. I loved that it was short and I truly enjoyed the whole gist of the story. This is truly a good read, one that will help you relax. So, get your hot cocoa and a blanket and curl up with this one! You won’t regret it!
A Bargained-For Bride by Marcia Lynn McClure (Novella)
“You’re the sweetest girl in Mourning Dove Creek, you know?” Jack mumbled as he paused in kissing Jilly a moment.
Jilly smiled. “And you’re the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek, you know,” she flirted in return.
Jack smiled. “I do know,” he said.
Jilly giggled. Jack Taylor was so predictable—and a little conceited. He really did think he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove—and he was, for the most part.
Secretly, however, if Jilly ever allowed herself to be completely honest about it (which she tried to avoid), there was one other man in Mourning Dove who always crossed her mind when the subject of the handsomest man in town arose. Yet there was no lingering on thinking of that man—no sirree! Not for a moment! Not for any reason—ever. And so Jilly just kept telling Jack that he was the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek. Besides, it was almost true—being that the other man lived outside of town and not right in town the way Jack did
