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


My Thoughts

Love has a way of finding us at the right moments.

This was a sweet and tender story of young love. I liked how the story was able to portray both sides of romance heartbreak and real love. The characters had to go through a bit of a growing up phase. Jilly learned the hard way the difference between fake love and true love.

Jilly was a sweet, but naive girl in the beginning. I liked that we got to see her grow from the beginning of the book to the end. She was definitely a wiser and much happier person by the end. She also learned that appearances can be deceiving.

The romance was nicely paced and although marriage came first the characters still had time to get to know each other before getting serious. I loved the interactions between Jilly and Boone, they were quite the pair!

Boone was a sweet man and very honorable, but he was also a bit antisocial. (Which I can totally relate with) it's because of this that Jilly is a bit wary of him at first. I really enjoyed getting to know him. I also liked finding out a bit more about his and Jilly's past as the story progressed.
