A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund | Kindle Fire Giveaway and Facebook Party! {5/8}

Michigan, 1880

Annalisa Werner’s hope for a fairy tale love is over. Her husband failed her in every way and now his death has left her with few options to save the family farm. She needs a plentiful harvest. That, and a husband to help bring it in. Someone strong, dependable. That’ll be enough. A marriage for love…that’s something she’s given up on.
So her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom.
Then a man appears: Carl Richards, from their home country of Germany and a former schoolteacher–or so he says. He’s looking for work and will serve on the farm until her husband arrives.
With time running out, she accepts his help, but there’s more to this man than he’s admitting. He’s also gentle, kind, charming–unlike any man she’s ever known. But even as Carl is shining light into the darkness of her heart, she knows her true groom may arrive any day.

MY REVIEW-I have read a couple of Jody Hedlund's books previously and wasn't too sure I cared for them. So I had mixed feelings when I opted to review this one. I enjoy her style of writing, her characters are well fleshed out and the plots are always interesting. I mean, a noble prince who happens to go undercover working a farm? Not everyday you get a plot like that:) But I have also had problems before with things that were put in the books that I felt were somewhat borderline on too much information. I am sure some of you know what I mean. Just a little more detailed than I am accustomed to.

This book starts out a little slow but quickly builds in intensity. You are drawn along wondering what will happen between Carl and Annalisa and if her real groom will appear before Carl feels led to marry her. And then the day he really arrives I about dropped. Not really but I wanted to slap them both and make them realize they were meant for each other. Carl was a little hard to like at first with his high ways but I really fell for him later. How he is with the children, pushing himself to work the land and then he up and leaves Annalisa. What a guy! LOL! There are several parts you might find yourself close to tears so make sure the tissues are handy.

So how did I like the book? I enjoyed it and would read another one of Jody's if given the chance! There were still a couple things but not as many and they were very subtle. Definitely not as noticeable. Great book Jody!
