I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Sixty Acres and a Bride - Regina Jennings

Widow Rosa Garner returns to Texas from Mexico along with her widowed mother-in-law Louise.  Upon their arrival, they come to find out that there is a rather large sum of money owed in back taxes. To make matters worse, they only have three months to pay it off or face losing the family ranch.  Rosa works hard to figure out ways to pay off the debt as well as adjust to the customs of her new country.  When the one honorable man she feels she can trust comes along her path she is torn between her feelings and repeating past mistakes. All is not easy for Weston either especially when his past is riddled with guilt that he cannot let go either.

From the very first words in the prologue, author Regina Jennings weaves a beautiful, different take on the biblical story of Ruth, Naomi & Boaz.  Rosa's Mexican heritage and free spirit often clash with her new home and the customs around her.  She is extremely passionate and her desire to save the land of her mother-in-law is incredibly noble.  Even at the detriment to herself.  The path towards love for Weston and Rosa is met with many obstacles including their painful pasts.  I devoured this book as soon as I opened it's pages. I found it hard to believe that this was Mrs. Jennings very first novel. I would highly recommend this novel and will most definitely read more from her!!!
