Always the groomsman, never the groom… It’s 1914, and Jake O’Farrell has gained an unusual reputation among the locals: He’s played the roles of groomsman and best man in all four of his older brothers’ weddings, but he’s never been able to find the woman to capture his heart. And now with the upcoming wedding of his best friend, Jake will become the last single man in the town of Groom. 

Anne Denning has made the difficult decision to move with her sisters to Texas, but a train derailment forces them to seek shelter in Groom, near Amarillo. Mrs. O’Farrell, hopeful that Anne will catch her youngest son’s eye, invites the girls to stay at her home until the train is repaired and ready to pull out. Anne has no idea of the blissful chaos that lies ahead!

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I purchased a copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I'm catching up a little on some of the older books that came out several years ago. Ms. Thompson is a prolific, fun, humorous romance writer and LOVE FINDS YOU IN GROOM, TEXAS is a good indication of her style. 

I enjoyed reading this historical and getting to know Jake and Anne. I like the faith message that Ms. Thompson works into her stories, too. I fell in love with Anne and her two younger sisters the moment they were introduced. I also enjoyed the cute journalist entries at the beginning of each chapter. 

If you are a fan of Ms. Thompson's wedding series and Hollywood series, you will love discovering her older books. Ms. Hanna is Ms. Thompson's pen-name so she truly is the same person.  A fun, rollicking, laugh-out-loud read that will keep you engaged until the end.

I appreciate your thoughts, Laura. I have so many older books to read which I'll eventually get to. God bless.
