“At Love’s Bidding” ~ Book Review

Feb 1, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Regina Jenning’s book, At Love’s Bidding.


As is my custom, if I could ask Regina one question about At Love’s Bidding it would be — “How did you come up with the idea about an ‘upper crust’ auction and a cattle auction?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

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 furious family, her grandfather tracks it to the Missouri Ozarks and makes an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house if they promise not to sell anything until he arrives.

Upon their arrival, however, they discover their new business doesn’t deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its manager, ruggedly handsome Wyatt Ballentine, is frustrated to discover his fussy new bosses don’t know a thing about the business he’s single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more cattle than they can count–but no mysterious painting–Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and salvage a bad situation getting worse.

Regina’s books always thrill and cause for “laughing-out-loud” reading! There is always humor entwined in each of her books and the characters came to life. This was a book that had you waiting with anticipation hoping that Miranda and Wyatt would just SAY how they felt instead of beating around the bush.

I loved the noticeable change that occurred in Miranda’s demeanor and attitude. Some characters just don’t seem to change — or at least, you don’t care if you do. But Miranda was different. When she first arrived in the Ozarks, Miranda was stuck up and she judged people on how they dressed and acted. I loved that through the course of the book, you could see WHY Miranda acted the way she did and that her change was visible, sincere, and realistic.
