From the back cover:
She Sells Priceless Antiques.
He Sells Livestock by the Pound.
Is He Really the Man to Make a Bid for Her Heart?
After helping her grandfather at their Boston auction house, Miranda Wimplegate discovers she’s accidentally sold a powerful family’s prized portrait to an anonymous bidder. Desperate to appease the people who could ruin them forever, they track it to the Missouri Ozarks and make an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house and all its holdings before the painting can move again.
Upon crossing the country, however, Miranda and her grandfather discover their new auction house doesn’t deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its frustratingly handsome manager, Wyatt Ballentine, is annoyed to discover his fussy new bosses don’t know a thing about the business he’s single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more heads of cattle than they can count–but no mysterious painting–Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and prevent a bad situation from getting worse.
One mix-up leads to another, landing Miranda and Wyatt in some awkwardly funny situations!
I love the humor sprinkled throughout At Love’s Bidding. Not only are the circumstances comical, but the characters are fantastic. From young Betsy, who manages to find her way into the middle of most everything, to elderly Elmer, bless his heart…
While we might not find ourselves in an auction house squabble, the lessons Miranda and Wyatt learn are certainly ones we might find ourselves learning, too. Courage, forgiveness, determination, and patience all play their part in the journey.
At Love’s Bidding is a wonderful story worth reading again. Having read the first book in this series (A Most Inconvenient Marriage), I enjoyed visiting “old friends” once again. This one could certainly stand alone, but you won’t want to miss the first book, as it is equally delightful. At Love’s Bidding is headed for my “keeper” shelf!
(I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts expressed here are entirely my own.)
