Review: The Texan's Twin Blessings by Rhonda Gibson

My rating: 3 stars / I liked it


Stand-In Father

As temporary guardian to his twin baby nieces, William Barns barely knows a diaper from a burp cloth. The well-meaning but meddling neighbor ladies suggest a wife—namely Emily Jane Rodgers. Although William isn't in the market for a bride, he needs a loving woman to watch over the children, and Emily Jane fits the bill nicely.

Emily Jane agrees to care for William's nieces—not become his betrothed. Fully determined to find her own way in life and to open her own bakery, Emily Jane isn't looking for a husband. But no matter how hard she resists, Emily Jane is roped in by the twins' little hugs and William's tender regard. And soon she longs to be a permanent part of this ready-made family…

My Review

This is a sweet story with the potential for a marriage of convenience, but Emily Jane fights it with everything she has. She has her own dreams and from her past experiences it doesn't occur to her that she can have both a family and bakery with a supportive husband. I admired that she was so willing to sacrifice and help William with the twins- and I felt like he took her for granted a bit. Their proximity with taking care of the twins together gave them the opportunities to get to know each other better, although it was a rocky path. It was inspiring to see Emily Jane's perspective shift as she learns to trust and believe in God and others.
