Loved the Wife Lottery Series by Jodi Thomas. Love her humor and insight. These books are what I consider easy reading and great to take on a trip. I love Jodi Thomas, either contemporary or old west novels.
Loved this book which is the second book of a series. The characters are wonderfully developed. The story captured my interest immediately and I just wanted to do nothing but read until I was finished. Each book in the series stands alone but if possible read all 4 books as characters from each book are common throughout.
tallaroo reviewed When a Texan Gambles (Wife Lottery, Bk 2) on
3 stars. Second in a series (The Texan's Wager; When a Texan Gambles; Texan's Luck). The main characters meet when he bails her out of jail in a wife lottery and marries her. The plot centers on their adventures avoiding and then going after an outlaw looking to do away with him. The story and the characters are great. There are no ugly surprises, and the love story is sweet; but the writing leaves a lot to be desired.
