Litfuse Review- At Love's Bidding by Regina Jennings

Hey everyone!! Happy New Year! It' s the first Monday of the year. How is that going for you? Are you getting some much needed down time, or is it back to the same old grind? Unfortunately, today was designated as "dismantle Christmas decorations" day. I absolutely think that is the most depressing day of the year. 


She Sells Priceless Antiques.
He Sells Livestock by the Pound.
Is He Really the Man to Make a Bid for Her Heart?

After helping her grandfather at their Boston auction house, Miranda Wimplegate discovers she's accidentally sold a powerful family's prized portrait to an anonymous bidder. Desperate to appease the people who could ruin them forever, they track it to the Missouri Ozarks and make an outlandish offer to buy the local auction house and all its holdings before the painting can move again. 

Upon crossing the country, however, Miranda and her grandfather discover their new auction house doesn't deal in fine antiques, but in livestock. And its frustratingly handsome manager, Wyatt Ballentine, is annoyed to discover his fussy new bosses don't know a thing about the business he's single-handedly kept afloat. Faced with more heads of cattle than they can count--but no mysterious painting--Miranda and Wyatt form an unlikely but charged partnership to try and prevent a bad situation from getting worse.

                             *My Thoughts*

What to say, what to say...

I was drawn into the first book in the series like a magnet...the second? Not as much. In the end, I was glad I picked it up. In fact, I eagerly await the third book with an interesting dose of anticipation. It just wasn't as...captivating as the first. 

The characters were both charming in their own way, each with their own struggles. I have to say, I really struggled with the secrets they had to keep from each other. As an avid reader, I knew that would cause strife and my heart hurt for them. They each were searching for something and they had to make hard decisions.

All in all, I think the book was good, it was just more drawn out then the first. Part of that was the subject matter. Regina decided to try something a bit different in that, this book, had a lot to do with antiques. There were a lot of facts about it that I learned so this would be an antique/historical lovers dream.

There was also a decent dose of humor that I was thrilled with. What else would you expect when and antique auctioneer accidentally purchases a cattle estate!

In the end, I flew through the last quarter of the book and ended up surprised. I enjoyed the story but for me, a little more romance and less facts, would have gotten me more into the story.

             *My overall thoughts*
Overall, this novel was a well written, enjoyable read, if a bit slower at first. If you're interested in this novel, I would definitely advise you to stick to it. Besides, who wouldn't love to read about all those awesome antiques?!

                                   *My Rating*

  I give At Loves Bidding by Regina Jennings...


                                  4 stars!! 

*I received this book from litfuse, the publisher, and the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

Happy Reading,
