I am going to giveaway my copy of The Proper Wife so be sure to leave a comment at the end.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This wasn’t my first Winnie Griggs’ Love Inspired Historical. Winnie appears to excel with stories where a free-spirited heroine meets an uptight hero or vice versa. This book is a story of the former romance. Sadie Lassiter is the free-spirited heroine and Eli Reynolds is the uptight hero.
Eli wants and thinks he needs to find a proper wife who will be a good step-aunt to the little sister in his care. And Sadie is not even on his long list much less his short list. She’s too carefree and too casual and not the least interested in housekeeping.
Then a storm strands them together for a night and the gossips put their heads together. Eli’s plans and Sadie’s plans go out the window when Eli proposes marriage to avert scandal.
However, it seems that this marriage might be in God’s plans for both of them.
A fun read with a delightful heroine who is a match for the very proper Mr. Reynolds!
