Another fun book by Debra Clopton. Set again in Mule Hollow, Dream a Little Dream focuses on reporter Molly Popp and Bob Jacobs. Molly has been writing about Bob for months... how perfect a husband and dad he is going to be one day and how he is ready for a wife. So why isn't she trying to fill the position? Molly has big plans... a career as a serious journalist travelling all over the world... and nothing is going to get in her way. Bob grew up in a single parent home living in a boarding school while his father travelled the globe working, so he wants none of the lifestyle Molly is seeking. Bob is ready to put down roots and raise a family in the heart of Texas. Enter several large mail bags full of love letters, a few crazy lovesick women looking for a man and a wild bull and you have the fixings for one crazy ride! Molly and Bob learn that God has a plan for each one of us and it might not fit in with our plans, but it is the best one there is!
It was just a local newspaper column, right? But when reporter Molly Popp touted the marriage-worthiness of local rancher Bob Jacobs, would-be wives descended on his Mule Hollow ranch by the busload. Molly felt guilty for the ruckus she'd caused-- especially when Bob was injured rescuing an overzealous admirer from a bull. There was nothing else city-slicker Molly could do but pitch in and help Bob out.
That is, until word of her column brought the job offer she'd been praying for and a choice she never thought she'd have to make: a Manhattan byline or Mule Hollow's most eligible bachelor.
