Review of SAVED BY A TEXAS-SIZED WEDDING by Judy Christenberry
Harlequin American Romance #969, May 2003
When her cousin dies in a freak auto accident, Suzanne McCoy moves to their ranch in Cactus, Texas to raise their children. When she discovers her ranch hands are stealing from her, she fires them, but then realizes that she doesn't have a clue how to run a ranch--and whoever she turns to points her at handsome rancher Ryan Walker. Ryan has his hands full with his own ranch and with his three year old daughter, Beth whose birth mother abandoned them both over two years earlier. Suzanne's offer to handle housekeeping and babysitting in exchange for his taking over ranch management doesn't seem quite fair, but the matchmaking mothers of Cactus have him in their sights. And it isn't as if Suzanne is any hardship to look at. A marriage of convenience, with the emphasis on convenience, is perfect.
It doesn't take long for Suzanne to realize that her feelings toward Ryan are anything but convenient. She falls in love with his daughter--and him. But could he ever be willing to open up to her, let her inside his shields, and really love her? When an unexpected challenge comes into their lives, she fears that she may never learn the answer as they have to play the role of the perfectly married couple.
Author Judy Christenberry (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Christenberry) continually delights readers with heart-warming stories of marriage, children, and women who tame their men to some semblance of civilization. SAVED BY A TEXAS-SIZED WEDDING is a fast-reading pleasure.
