A Suitor for Jenny

Author: Margaret Brownley
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
September 2010
ISBN: 978-1-5955-4810-8
Genre: Inspirational/historical

Jenny Higgins read in the newspaper that Rocky Creek, Texas, is the ideal place to look for husbands. Desperate to get her two sisters married off to wealthy men, the three of them arrive in town and Jenny sets up interviews, following strict guidelines.

But it isn’t as easy to find suitable husbands as it was supposed to be. The men folk of the town are upset because only the wealthy ones are considered. And those that look good on paper don’t look so good in person.

Marshal Rhett Armstrong has his hands full trying to keep an eye on Jenny and keep the town calm after she acts up. But he can’t help but care for her. Jenny needs all the friends she can get, but will she have any luck finding mates for her sisters?

A SUITOR FOR JENNY is the sequel to A Lady Like Sarah but it easily stands alone. I was instantly captivated by this book, and laughed out loud in several spots. I literally couldn’t put this book down and feel that out of the two books I’ve read by Ms. Brownley, A SUITOR FOR JENNY is the best.

Jenny is a very strong-willed heroine, not willing to let anyone get the best of her, so it was funny when people did. I also enjoyed getting to know some of the secondary characters in this quirky town. I highly recommend A SUITOR FOR JENNY and am looking forward to the next book by this author. $14.99. 320 pages.
