Lyn Reviews Author Becky Wade’s Meant to be Mine & a Couple More Images for Feedback

Meant to be Mine (Porter Family, #2)Meant to be Mine by Becky Wade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was my first Becky Wade romance, but not my last! Meant to be Mine started out with a wedding, not at the right place but with the right guy OR at least the heroine thought so at the time. In the morning light, everything unravels.

Surprise babies are a staple of romance fiction but that doesn’t mean that they ever lose their appeal. After all, a baby changes EVERYTHING–as anyone who has become a parent knows.

And this unexpected baby becomes a little girl Addie about to enter kindergarten–before the daddy ever finds out that she’s been born.

Sometimes I think that the heroes in stories that are so angry that no one told them about the baby don’t ring true. There are so many dead-beat dads in this world. But Ty Porter is not one. He was totally believable as a man who wanted to know his child. Well done, Becky.

I love the other characters especially Celia’s surfer uncle and his mishaps trying to find his Ms. Right.

The highest compliment I can pay a book is that I’ve already read it again. And Meant to be Mine is one of those!

PS: This book was a finalist in Oklahoma RWA’s National Reader’s Choice Contest in the inspirational category!

Now for another couple of possible images for my holiday novella.

How about focusing on the hero instead of the heroine since he’s the one coming home?

Does his face draw you in, make you want to know more about him?

Hero image?


And how about this heroine? I’m thinking of cropping most of the background out and just focusing on her face. How does she stack up to last week’s two heroines?

    I’m not too for the guy or the girl. Don’t know why…exactly

  2. Melinda M. says:

    No to the hero and the girl only if you crop the picture and use the head.

  3. Barb says:

    Lyn, My favorite of the four is the girl in the snow from last time. The guy doesn’t appeal to me at all for some reason.

  4. June says:

    I do like the guy cover. Still feel like the girl looks pretty young. Cropped would look nice though. Maybe it’s her posturing that comes across as young. Close up on her face doesn’t feel quite so young.

  5. Amanda Nixon says:

    I agree with Pauline. I like a more rugged look and longer hair on the girl =)

  6. Pauline Osborne says:

    They look so young, what age were they? I like my men more rugged looking,handsome but rugged….long flowing hair on a young woman too, guess I am just more for the older ones….

  7. Diane Blaser says:

    No on the hero, yes on the photo cropping.
