Having a father is a big responsibility.

And finding him a wife is a challenge eight-year-old Becky Jones takes seriously. Ex-rodeo cowboy Taggart Jones is adamant. No marriage. Been there. Done that.

Not even if Becky's dream candidate is her beautiful, blonde teacher, Felicity Albright, who knows about barrettes, patching up scrapes, and hates carrots as much as his daughter. Taggart’s still not interested. Much.

What's a daughter to do? Becky’s nothing if not ingenious, and she’s determined to convince a stubborn Taggart and a bemused Felicity that they really have met their match.

    Entertaining story with some comedic moments. Eight year old Becky has noticed a change in her ex Bull Rider father, Taggart and decided that what he needs is a wife. However there are very few single women in Elmer, Montana and those that are she wouldn't want as a mother, so she decides to pray and lo and behold, there is a new teacher at school! With the help of her best friend Susannah, Becky puts in play an elaborate plan for her father and new teacher to meet. Felicity lost the love of her life two years ago and has felt encased in ice since the accident that took Dirk from her but her move to Elmer, has made her come alive again. She's not expecting to find love again and so is surprised by her instant attraction to Taggart but whilst she is prepared to risk her heart again, Taggart having failed in his relationship with Becky's mother, feels he is not good enough for Felicity. Can his daughter and Felicity teach him the error of his ways? Believable characters, sweet story about second chance love and a cute daughter. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
