Living with three brothers has taught me what I don't want in a husband. "Guys" who can only converse about farming, welding and hockey won't cut it. And those who perfer a rodeo to a symphony or dusty jeans to a nice suit are not for me.
A good book for a fast read.
Any Man of Mine by Carolyn Aarsen -- this is one of Love Inspired's Steeple Hill Cafe' books... I really like those books. They are very much "chick lit" and so enjoyable to read! Danielle is looking for a man.. NOT a guy... and there are none to be found in the small farming town where she grew up. So she has a plan... to move to the big city and find a real man.. cultured, sophisticated, able to read her mind. First, she has to get things in order for her father and 3 brothers... find a new job.... finish up her open cases at her current job... and then there is James... the new GUY in town.... who is doing his best to steal her heart. And Dani is doing her best to run from him. .. but in the end will the running take her from him or straight into his arms? A fun book to read!
Raised with 3 brothers, Danielle, finds it hard to imagine falling in love with someone as ordinary and "guy" as her brothers.
This is a really great book.
What I first liked about this novel is that it's written in the first person, which gives you more sympathy for the main character, a put-upon social worker named Danielle Hemstead. She's caring for her invalid father and dealing with three brothers who care more about tractor parts and calf roping than they do about people--or so it seems.
She's immediately introduced to James (aka Jigs), a handsome and rugged man who likes Schubert and poetry and can also ride a bucking bronc. Danielle is afraid that she'll end up with a guy (like her brothers): in her head, someone who trips over dirty laundry and doesn't know how to run a dishwasher instead of a man, someone who reads poetry and understands how to make a good cappuchino.
She wants to leave Preston, the small town she's lived in for the big city and a job with an adoption agency. But James and her brothers, not to mention her best friend Tracy, have other ideas in mind for her. Danielle is an appealing and funny heroine. She is absolutely real, and seeing her finally stand up for herself is great. James is equal parts tough guy and softie, as he aids his sister, Robin, and her new baby. Danielle's brothers initially come across as literary versions of the Dukes of Hazzard but eventually show their more humane side as well.
Living with three brothers had taught Danielle Hemstead what she didn't want in a husband. "Guys" who can only converse about farming, welding, and hockey won't cut it. And those who prefer a rodeo to a symphony or dusty jeans to a nice suit were not for her. Unfortunatley her hometown was full of guys like her brothers. Until a new man moved into town...a churchgoer who was cultured, wears suits, and most important is nothing like her brothers...is it meant to be?
Enjoyable - story about finding love near home while having faith in God.
