THERE'S A FOX IN THE HENHOUSE
Inheriting the most notorious house of ill repute in Texas can spell trouble for a girl's reputation . . . especially when she's Elizabeth Murphy, Bramble's prim and proper librarian. Yet when she discovers a buck-naked cowboy handcuffed to a four-poster bed, she forgets all about the town gossips. Elizabeth has sworn off men, but the stranger's kisses melt her resolve faster than ice cream on a hot summer day.
Waking up in Miss Hattie's Henhouse isn't how Brant Cates reckoned on getting to the bottom of his great-granddaddy's murder. The plan was to solve the centuries-old crime, then get the heck out of Dodge. But after meeting Elizabeth and discovering that the buttoned-up beauty is a sexy siren in disguise, he just can't pull himself away.
Now Brant needs Elizabeth to finally put his past to rest, but is she willing to risk her future on Bramble's newest bad boy?
For inquiring minds.... This is the fourth book in the author's "Deep in the Heart of Texas" series. I have not read the other three, but this book stands on its own. I must say that now that I fell in love with this one, I am going to scoop up the other ones. I seem to be adding Western Romance to my genre; there is something about a man with in a cowboy hat...
This was a quick and fun read. I found myself in stitches within the first few chapters. Here is this strong, hunky man taken down by a three aging women. Three "living in the past" ladies, they are trying to revive the "Hen House", a place of haven for troubled women or those escaping an abusive relationship. Don't judge a person by where they may reside, these ladies are a class act. Too funny for words. The author also threw in a mystery murder in the midst of this laugh out loud book. This book grabbed my attention ifrom the very beginning and kept it the entire time.
This author is new to me, but rest assure that I will add the rest of the books in this series to my pile. I loved the banter between the characters, the secondary characters stole the show for me. I can't wait to see what else she brings us in this series...
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
