    I really enjoyed this one! I thought it had an interesting premise and was carried out well. Regina (Reggie) has been taking care of her nephew for the past six years and wants to make it more official by adopting him. After writing her grandfather for advice she gets more than she bargained for when he sends three bachelors to Texas to marry her! He also sends along his steward Adam to oversee that she not only picks a man and marries him within three weeks, or he'll take the little boy away. I I really enjoyed this one!

He also sends along his steward Adam to oversee that she not only picks a man and marries him within three weeks, or he'll take the little boy away. I loved how Reggie handles the situation (although, at times she did come across a little cold), she doesn't cry about her fate, but takes matters into her own hands. I felt bad that none of the men actually wanted to marry her, in part because of her behavior, but I guess also they were just not a good match. It's obvious who the final guy will be, but it was still fun to see how things come together. I thought Adam and Reggie had a sweet relationship. I liked that Adam really took the time to get to know her and appreciated her quirks. The first half of the book was pretty lighthearted and fun, while the second half is a little deeper. (view spoiler)[Reggie chooses Adam, thinking he'd never say yes. He surprises her when he does accept and they are forced to marry. Before the wedding Reggie drops a bombshell and Adam is furious. Okay, so a part of me could understand why he was upset initially, but I thought he was really unfair about everything. Women back then had it really hard, they had very limited options. Under the circumstances I thought Reggie made a very good choice. Either option for her would have been hard, but in her option she was still able to be around and play a major role with the little boy. So, I thought Adam, who up until now had been pretty intelligent, was incredibly insensitive and narrowminded. Granted, he has a past hurt that explains his knee-jerk reaction, but still. Couldn't he see how different Reggie's situation was from his own? Couldn't he see that Reggie did abandon anyone or exit the scene, she played an active role and even stepped up when needed. She handled everything thrown at her with grace and courage. I also thought it was dumb that he wanted to see all this remorse from her, when everything that happened to her was seven years ago. She'd obviously moved on and came to terms with everything. I guess he just learned everything so it was a shock and took him some time to settle down and realize that Reggie did the best she could. (hide spoiler)] I thought the end was a tad rushed. There were three storylines that just came together rather quickly. (view spoiler)[The revenge/justice with his clearing his name was a little anticlimactic. I thought he made the right choice, but it still felt a little...abrupt. The whole story with the banker was a little surprising, not what he had done, that was obvious, but how he handled it was a little shocking. And then Adam's feeling shift about Reggie was a little fast. I wanted him to have a moment where he felt truly regretful for how he had judged her. I actually thought the Grandfather was going to have a talk with him and show him the error of his thinking. Owell. (hide spoiler)] Overall, a very enjoyable and well written story. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. I knew going into it that there would be four books and that the other three bachelors would get their own books. So, I was curious how the author was going to portray them in this book knowing they would eventually be the leads in their own book. I ended up being pleasantly surprised and liked how everything played out. Again, I look forward to reading their stories now. Content Romance: Clean Religious: Mild

    This book is the first book of the series “Texas Grooms.” It’s a Christian, Historical Romance novel with a simple but satisfying plot. Although the ending was totally expected and predictable, arriving at the ending of the book was a pleasure. What I liked: The characters were so real that you felt as if they were someone you knew.

I love the feisty way Reggie carries out her conniving schemes to eliminate the unwanted suitors her grandfather has thrust upon her. I also enjoyed the verbal sparring and the way she ignores and rebukes Adam Barr, who is only there to mediate between her, her grandfather and the suitors he has sent to woo her into marriage. What I didn’t like: The plot was simple, but not aggravatingly so, and I predicted the ending from the very first chapter. This story will leave you satisfied and content. It’s an entertaining book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I highly recommend it to anyone loving historical romances, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Overall, I give it five stars.

    This was a great story and very funny. It had me laughing out loud in places and I'm not one to laugh while reading. The way the heroine "tests" each suitor is hilarious. She's an unusual character who definitely knows who she is but has her own weaknesses and doubts too. You'll enjoy this.

    This book is more of a clean romance than a Christian one. The characters don’t really delve into Gods forgiveness as one would hope. The verses that are used and the Godly aspect are more of an afterthought than a driving force. I am.

It was very predictable who the couple would be due to the fact they were the most fleshed out. I would have loved to know more about the care takers Ira and his wife. All in all this is just the start of me reading this authors stories I think.

    It's nice , sweet and funny. Not too cheesy, only a few complaints. One was that 3\4th of the store is a bit of build up but there is only about 1\4 of the actual romance between the main characters and almost seems rushed. 2nd is I've noticed with a few stories that there isn't so much of a religious theme of focus but there always seems to add some kind of biblical reference towards the end I feel it doesn't fit but that's just me.

    This one was alright, we wasted a lot of time not having the couple fall in love. And the hero was very harsh toward the heroine through out most of the story. And did she ever tell her son the truth? That seemed like a sticking point that never happened. Eh, a bit long for my taste, and it got hung up on the wrong things but I think there is a good story under there.

    Texas Grooms #1 Handpicked Husband by Winnie Griggs was a wild ride from start to finish! I love books like this. It grabbed the on the first page and didn't turn me loose until the last. I laughed, I cried… I even sobbed. Here is my breakdown of the different aspects of what I feel is important in any good book: Ease of Readability - 9/10 Every now and then there was a POV change that was a little confusing/abrupt, but for the most part, this book was very easy-to-read. Uniqueness of Story - 9 Texas Grooms #1 Handpicked Husband by Winnie Griggs was a wild ride from start to finish! I love books like this. It grabbed the on the first page and didn't turn me loose until the last. I laughed, I cried… I even sobbed. Here is my breakdown of the different aspects of what I feel is important in any good book: Ease of Readability - 9/10 Every now and then there was a POV change that was a little confusing/abrupt, but for the most part, this book was very easy-to-read. Uniqueness of Story - 9/10 I found this story to be pretty unique. Small parts of it may have had only the barest similarities to other books I've read, but nothing about this book has been overdone. World Explanation - 9/10 Turnabout, in this series is the "World" this series is set in. I felt that Winnie did an excellent job of introducing us to Turnabout, Texas. I can hardly wait to read more. Storyline Expansion - 10/10 I felt that this storyline expanded very well. There were no over long delays in moving from one part of the plot the next. I never got bored, or thought that she should pick up the pace. Character Development - 10/10 I have to say that I loved the characters in this book! The 3 potential suitors were interesting enough that you like them, yet not once did you want Reggie to choose any of them over Adam. I'm hoping that the following books in the series, take care of getting brides for Reggie's three suitors, because I would like to see all three of them well-settled! Dialogue Plausibility - 10/10 I didn't have any problems with any of the dialogue! Plot Development - 10/10 I enjoyed the plot development in this book. It took twists and turns I wasn't expecting and always kept me wanting to move forward. I honestly didn't want to put this book down. Annoyance Factor - 0/10 I found absolutely nothing annoying about this book! :-) Interesting Characters - 10/10 I felt the characters in this book were very interesting, but Reggie definitely took the cake! I don't want to ruin anything by spelling it out, but from beginning to end Reggie is fascinating. Humorous Interplay - 9/10 There were a few parts of this book that were laughed out loud funny. This book had just the right amount of humor. Romantic Chemistry - 9/10 The romantic chemistry was there throughout, even when Adam was struggling with Reggie's past. Tear Jerkiness - 9/10 I cried, my heart broke, I sobbed! Enough said. Villain Scariness - 0/10 There was no real villain, unless you count the person that allowed Adam to be framed, tried, convicted and sentenced to six years in prison. However, if that is the villain then there is absolutely no villain scariness whatsoever! Biblical Use & Correctness - 5/10 The way that Winnie used the Bible in this story was 100% correct, but I didn't feel like she used it nearly enough.

She either marries one of the three men her grandfather sent as suitors or she loses her nephew. Her grandfather thinks she needs to have a husband in order to raise a child as well as to look after her. She is living in the small town of Turnabout, Texas while her grandfather resides in Philadelphia. She wants nothing to do with marriage and likes her independent life just the way it is. However, she will do whatever it takes to keep her nephew so she reluctantly signs the contract brought by her father’s man, Adam Barr. Too bad Adam isn’t putting himself forward as a potential suitor as she thinks he would make a good father. She has known Adam for about seven years and had a crush on him when she was a teenager. Now, she has a strategy mapped out that will hopefully discourage the suitors to return to the East Coast and leave her in peace. Adam Barr wants nothing more than for this three-week trial to be over. He is anxious to get back to Philadelphia to clear his name. He was wrongly convicted of embezzlement and spent six years in jail. He knows who the guilty party is, but he must find proof before making any accusations. He lost everything as a result of his imprisonment…his law practice, his home, his fiancée. He wants nothing to do with Regina Nash and her husband quandary, but he owes Judge Madison, Regina’s grandfather, as he is the only man in Philadelphia to stand by him throughout his legal troubles, still believing him innocent of the charges. Adam admires Regina’s spirit and dedication to her nephew, but he will uphold the contract no matter what as he gave the Judge his word. However, Regina’s decision must be made in two weeks and what she decides throws everyone for a curve. Reading this book was a great way to spend my Saturday afternoon. The plot was not complicated, the characters were likeable and the outcome a forgone conclusion, but I sure enjoyed the journey getting to the end. This is a light historical romance with a Christian theme, which I endorse wholeheartedly. The next book in the series is titled, The Bride Next Door, and I will be reading and reviewing that book soon on this blog. This is a feel-good romance that will leave readers smiling at the end. My rating is 4 stars. Note: The opinions shared in this review are solely my responsibility. Other reviews can be read at http://seekingwithallyurheart.blogspo....

And a man carrying a chip on his shoulder with revenge on his mind. Some of the towns people come to life as well. The gossip and snooty woman who thinks no man can refuse her.

It was a rather interesting read, funny and witty at the beginning of the book where Regina tries to get out of the arrangement by trying to put on tricks on the candidates and dark and gloomy when she finally revealed the secret that she have been holding to Adam. I was rather surprise with the twist of the story at the end of the book which i have no way of knowing (the author really good in keeping it) and expecting it. Overall, it was a good read with good story plot.

I have to admit that the first half of the story moved a little slowly to me. It was enjoyable and interesting, and it is when the courting was going on between the suitors and Regina. I simply wondered if the story was going to pick up the pace. Once I made it a little over halfway through the book, Regina made her choice, and oh boy! The pace really picked up and this became a book that I had trouble putting down. In fact, I stayed up late into the night to finish it! Secrets were revealed and a whole lot of tension erupted! I definitely recommend this story to readers of Christian romance. This book is the beginning of the series and I look forward to reading the other books.

Can't wait for the next in the series.

    I've been wanting to read this one for awhile and it didn't disappoint. It was definitely different as the book blurb suggested. A few things in the story were somewhat predictable but I liked how it got there. The rest of Regina's hijinks's were just fun. Adam had a job to do and he was as unmovable about it as a mountain. That still didn't stop Regina from pushing. The very last thing that she wanted was a husband. Freedom is what she had fought for and finally gained.

    Good read. The heroine's step-grandfather has sent 3 men from Philadelphia to her home in Texas (NE Texas) plus one guy to supervise the contract granddad has come up with. He's manipulating her into marrying one of them by threatening to take away the nephew she's raised since he was a baby.

    Winnie Griggs is an amazing author. This story finds us with a group of men traveling from Philadelphia to Texas. Three of them are on their way to being part of a "husband lottery". Regina's grandfather wants her to get married and by sending three men, at least she'll have a choice. But what does a girl do when she doesn't want to get married? Find the loop-holes. This is the first in the Texas Grooms series so we have at least 3 more stories to look forward to from Ms. Griggs.

    Wonderful book!! Brilliantly written. This whole book was a surprise since I've read many life-inspired books and this one blew me away. The suspense and the wait cinched the deal for me, and the whole book progressed nicely. It was a little rushed at the end, but other then that this book was great. Will definitely read more books by Ms.Griggs!

    I thought this was a great idea for a story, but the author's writing didn't do the idea justice. I wish she had collaborated with one of my 5 star authors, so that this could have been an outstanding book. Over all I've found that LOVE INSPIRED HISTORICALS books are semi-bland. They may be inspired by love, but fall short. Kinda like a low production made for tv movie.

    Another Love Inspired Book. I like this author and I am hoping she will do some more in this town. Good Book and I didn't have the plot figured out right in the beginning. I like that.
