Stand-In Rancher Daddy I like historical romances and this is a sweet inspirational read, meaning there are references to church and everyone tries to behave well A widowed depressed father rides off and leaves his children with his brother, the rancher of the title, and a young woman neighbour who is also widowed has to help him mind the girls There is not muchto say about the romance, which is stretched out by the two adults wish not to get involved for personal reasons In those days I think town marriages I like historical romances and this is a sweet inspirational read, meaning there are

marriages were often arranged by what seemed fitting or needed and personal wishes didn t always count We see some nice sides of life but I tend to find the scenes with the children a bit tedious Girls in those days had to do as they were told, and the conversations with adults explaining right and wrong seem too modern But no doubt many women will enjoy the gentle read.I downloaded an ARC from Net Galley and wrote an unbiased review CJ is a rancher, not a dad But when his widowed brother abandons his twins, CJ is left with no choice but to step in and be a father He s incredibly thankful for the young widow Molly who has been helping out since the death of his sister in law Everyone in town thinks the two should get married It would solve so many problems But CJ thinks he isn

big family Nothing short of a community tragedy will bring them together.This was a sweet, fun book to read The characters were real and likable The author wove faith, the importance of family, forgiveness, and trust into a clean, romantic story that was both enjoyable and thought provoking I liked the elements of small town that the plot was wrapped around I think the author did a great job with the secondary characters as well and I can see several of them in the next book Overall, this was a great story that readers of historical fiction or Christian romance will enjoy.I received this
