A Love Bidding Book Review

At Love’s Bidding
At Love’s Bidding (Bethany House, December 2015)
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 Review:
 Regina Jennings does something fantastic in " At Loves Abiding" when she uses the genre of historical romance and uses something like antiques to tell an amazing story that is charming, witty and delightful to read. Miranda has a heck of a time trying to figure out who this man is that ends up with an antique that wasn't for sale, but could this sale mean a romance for her? Or will she go on a wild ride looking at livestock to come up empty handed? You'll love the sense of adventure that this strong-willed woman pulls you along for as you embark on finding the man who bought something Miranda's grandfather auctioned off.  Miranda steps out of her comfort zone when she is forced to deal Wyatt and livestock instead of her usual antique world, which makes this book all the more fun! This book is charming, comical and by the end; you'll be happy you picked up this unusual historical romance.
