Maggie Brendan writes with quite a bit of humor in her novels. She wants her readers to laugh at some of the antics of her characters and the situations that happen. She also adds a bit of suspense to her stories. She wants to keep her readers engaged in the narrative. She has done so with her newest offering--Trusting Grace.
Grace Bidwell would like to be married, but she's taking care of her father and her potato farm--there really isn't time to look for a suitable mate.
Robert Frasier has become the father of his late wife's three children. Robert doesn't have two dimes to rub together and his children need food, shelter, and clothing.
The two come together when Grace mentions to her friend that she needs a hired hand.
Maggie introduces her suspense in the character of Warren, who seems to be a nefarious type from the very beginning, and he lives up to his characterization.
This is a book that grabs the reader's attention and shakes it around before letting go. Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a potato farm to keep food on the table.
My thanks to Revell Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
