Sixty Acrse and a Bride review and Kindle Fire Giveaway

About the book:
She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home... How Far Will She Go to Save It?

With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.

Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention. 

Where some offer help with dangerous strings attached, only one man seems honorable. But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future. Read an excerpt: http://ow.ly/9sK2C.

My Review:
I’m so excited that I got a chance to discover and read “Sixty Acres and a Bride” by Regina Jennings! She has created such a wonderful historical romance that is full of lively characters and real life struggles. I loved getting to know Rosa and felt at times connected to her fears and struggles. She was completely charming and I just got a kick out of tom-boy ways and sassy Mexican attitude! You can’t help but to fall in love with her!

Rosa and her mother-in law are trying to make a new name for themselves back where her mother-in law used to live and this adventure is filled with many bumps along the way. They’re about to lose the only property they have to their names, they have about 120 days to come up with the taxes owed on their property. Not only that but they are both in mourning after losing their husbands and Rosa is not exactly fitting in being the only Mexican in the town.

Weston is the perfect hero. He is a quiet cowboy that keeps to himself after the loss of his wife. He takes care of his family and feels strongly about protecting Rosa. He isn’t without faults but he sure is swoon worthy!

This story is written in such a way that you find yourself wanting to reach through the books and slap Rosa and Weston at times. Their romance has many bumps along the road and a lot of times it had to do with their own stupidity. I loved that the heroine was a Mexican girl. It very rare that the main characters are of a different ethnicity and I enjoyed reading more about her culture, beauty and character! There is also a touch of suspense to add to this great historical! I loved this book and I look forward to reading more by this new author!!
