At Love’s Bidding by Regina Jennings

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.

This was such a fun read for me. It was light hearted but the story was not lacking.  There was a couple times were I found myself really laughing out loud. My husband stopped and said “Wow it must be good because you are laughing out loud.” So I read him the part of the book I had just read and he agreed that it was quite funny. Which makes the book that much more endearing to me.  Very rarely will you hear me chuckling out loud but when I do you better believe its for good reason. 

This is the first time I had ever read anything by Regina Jennings and I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s fun, light and was very entertaining. You will definitely be finding this one on my recommendation list.  I really liked that this was a stand alone but apparently has a character from a previous story intertwined with this one.  She did a good job including her and yet not losing focus on the current story. I do hope she writes one about Betsy. I would love to see where her story might take her.
