After a broken engagement, marriage is not in Della’s plans. And Hank Lamson isn’t pleased—with his parents, with his unexpected guest or with Della’s unfairly appealing smile.

IN MY OPINION
In The Rancher’s Want Ad Mix-Up, readers get a twist on the mail order bride trope along with a hint of marriage of convenience.
Megan Besing’s debut novel includes engaging characters, some nice twists to the romance genre, and some matchmaking-minded parents. Hank is so focused on his oil ranch and keeping his family safe, he sometimes misses the more important things with his three boys. Enter Della, a woman whose sole focus is on being the best teacher possible to Hank’s children.
This novel includes some light-hearted moments between the boys’ antics and the determined ladies from town. There are also tense moments of disagreement between Hank and Della as they doubt each other and themselves. But it was Wallace’s fast love and acceptance of Della that stole my heart in this story.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Despite always adoring happily-ever-afters, Megan Besing didn’t unlock a love for reading until her mid-twenties, which quickly expanded into writing. Her own stories have won many awards, including the Selah for her novella, Perfect for the Preacher, along with the Pre-published Maggie for The Rancher’s Want Ad Mix-up. And now she’s thrilled to be a Sunrise Publishing author. However, her most cherished achievements are being a wife and mother. She lives in a pocket-size Indiana town, centered around extended family, where she’s always planning a road trip with a view. Yet, her favorite place may just be on her front porch drinking tea.

I’m looking forward to enjoying a more than pleasant time reading this one with the children and “determined” town ladies.
