Groom by Agreement

A real home--it's what Vienna Howe dearly wants for her young daughter. Yet the ramshackle property she just inherited hardly qualifies. She can't afford the repairs--until foreman West McCall suggests they start a dude ranch together. For propriety's sake, they'll need a marriage in name only...a practical solution for two wary hearts.

Years ago, West convinced Vienna to marry a man of means, never realizing how cruel her husband could be. Guilt-ridden, he intends to secure the lovely widow's future. But despite his reluctance to get close to anyone, this union might do more than fix Vienna's ranch. It could open the door to a warm, loving future...

My Review: 5 Stars

Henrie has found her niche writing Westerns and this sweet historical romance is fantastic! The characters are so likable, hardworking, and have hardships to overcome, making them realistic. Vienna wants to make a life on her own with her young daughter, Hattie, and they are definitely sweethearts. West wants to run his own ranch, so a mutual arrangement is most beneficial to all parties involved. The emotion that results from this agreement is unexpected to them, but predictable for the reader, but delivered in a way that really rooted this book into my heart

These are the types of characters who come full circle and steal your heart in the process. Life is hard in the west and West and Vienna prove they are more than capable of handling it. I loved the glimpses of previous characters (it can stand alone) and enjoyed watching the diligence pay off.

This book *almost* makes me long to live in this time and place, forging my own way in life and having the satisfaction of doing so. I'll take my modern luxuries, but I sure did enjoy my time spent in Wyoming.

Content: mild romance; mild religious elements.

*I received a complimentary copy. This had no influence on my opinions, which are all my own and were not compensated for in any way.*

The Pinkerton agent that Edward Kent hired is intelligent, capable—and unexpectedly female!

And if that means a temporary engagement to give Maggy a cover story, he’ll play along with the feisty detective.

Maggy always gets her man—at least when it comes to solving crimes. The young widow refuses to marry again and land under another husband’s thumb. Unmasking Edward’s enemies will earn her a longed-for promotion…but the heart has its own mysteries. Could working together with the handsome English aristocrat spark a real and loving partnership?
