From the publisher:
Jenny Higgins is certain falling in love and finding a husband are matters of the mind. Her heart has other plans.

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 Review:
Is there anything more fun than reading about three husband hunting sisters invading an Old West town? In my opinion, no. When the Higgins sisters aka the "Hussy" sisters invade Rocky Creek, Texas, the male citizens must prepare for battle. The chaos that ensues is both fun and heartwarming.

As a reader I find stories set in the West with cowboys, outlaws and strong willed ladies often are the best reads. A Suitor for Jenny is definitely one of those good reads. As my first book by Margaret Brownley (although it's the second in the series) I was not disappointed in the least and her writing has lived up to the rave reviews that I have read. There are sassy sisters, a handsome marshal, an opera singing barber and a curmudgeonly older gentleman who looks out for the town men's best interests...or so he thinks. It's fun and has a ton of romance and even a little bit of drama. Throw in a lot of faith and you get one terrific book that will have you begging for more from Rocky Creek, Texas!

  2. Sounds good; I just read the first book A Lady Like Sarah which was pretty good although this sounds funnier.

  3. "Is there anything more fun than reading about three husband hunting sisters invading an Old West town? In my opinion, no." You are funny, Renee! And even the cover of this book is funny. This does sound like a good read. :)

  4. I can't believe I've never read a Margaret Brownley book! And Amazon compares her to some of my all-time favorites (like Laura Frantz). When I implement my wish list, which one should I start with?

  5. Hi Renee! I've heard great things about the first book, which I own but haven't read yet LOL. I don't know where you should start but it seems like the beginning of the series, A Lady Like Sarah would be the best place (unless you're like me who reads every series out of order LOL)!

    Here's the link to Margaret's review if you want to check it out! http://creativemadnessmama.com/blog/2010/01/22/a-lady-like-sarah-by-margaret-brownley-a-review/

  6. I've read the last book first of many a Christian fiction series. Except, of course, for things like Lord of the Rings or Narnia!
