I love stories where the daddy loves his kids to distraction. Trace knew how to play silly games and he really listened to them.
Geralyn mixes just enough fun with love and danger to keep my nose in the book until the end. She also makes the characters come to life so they feel like friends and family that I truly care about.
I enjoy Geralyn Dawson's stories and this era was new for me. It took alittle to get into the storyline but did become engrossed in it after a couple chapters. Very enjoyable read and am now waiting for The Bad Luck Wedding Cake. These take place in the 1800's for a different read. I highly recommend this series.
Jenny Fortune's dress shop is in trouble when Big Jack Bailey claims the wedding dress she made his daughters caused their bad luck. Everyone started calling it "The Bad Luck Wedding Dress" and her business dried up. The only way she knows to get her business back is to wear the dress at her own wedding and make it a good luck dress. Her quickest candidate for a husband is her landlord, Trace McBride, the widowed father of three young daughters. He definitely needs some help with the girls. Around town they are known for their antics and have been nicknamed the "McBride Menaces". Trace had never paid any attention to his tenant until his daughters point out that she would make them a good mother. Trace has no intention of ever marrying again, but can't help but admit that he needs help with the girls.
Trace is a hero with a dark past. He was burned by his first wife and is not willing to give marriage another try. Of course, Jenny is the perfect woman for him, winning his trust and his love. It took me a few chapters to get into this story, but enjoyed it once it got rolling. The mischief the girls get into is fun. I can't wait to see what they do in the next book. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
