My Review: Jilly is the happiest girl in Mourning Dove Creek, she gets to spark with the handsome Jack Taylor. Jilly would never admit to Jack that he isn't the handsomest man in Mourning Dove Creek, but that honor belongs to Boone Ramsey. Boone is the one man in town that you can always count on to save you from any dangerous situation. Little boy in the fast moving creek, Boone pulls him out. Lost down a well or in a mine, Boone's your man. Boone happens to overhear Jilly's grandpa Doolin Adams worrying about what will happen to Jilly when he dies. He knows that the handsome Jack is not the marrying kind and worries that Jilly's fascination with him will get her in trouble. Boone made a promise to himself when he was a young man that he would never allow anyone or anything to hurt Jilly and he means to keep that promise. So he goes to Doolin and asks for Jilly's hand in marriage which Doolin gladly grants. Jilly is furious, she knows she wants to marry Jack. Her grandparents and Boone can all see what she can't that Jack is not the marrying kind. What will Jilly do, marry a man she hardly knows or a man that wants nothing to do with marrying her.
This was a cute novella. I liked that it was a quick, easy read. I liked the characters. I liked that I was sucked into the town of Mourning Dove Creek and cared about what happened to the people living in it. I really liked the skinny dipping scene, it made me laugh really hard to imagine it! I can't wait to read Marcia Lynn McClure's next book to see just what she will come up with next!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
