Book Review: Marrying Mr. Wrong by Melissa Jagears

Can a man who’s completely wrong for her help her find Mr. Right?

Gwendolyn McGill wants to be loved and accepted for who she is, but that’s hard to do in a small town where everyone judges her by the scandal her father caused. Unfortunately, the man she hoped would sweep her away from all the wagging tongues is no longer interested in marrying her. Unable to leave town, she’s determined to prove she’s more than just a pretty face who knows how to bat her eyelashes.

For years, Timothy O’Conner has loved Gwen from a distance, knowing someone like her would never be attracted to a lowly ranch hand with a blemished face like him. When Gwen unexpectedly shows up at the ranch, asking him to help her learn how to attract a man of quality, Tim’s feelings become even harder to suppress.

When danger pushes them together, they discover there’s more to each other than either of them imagined. Though God is no respecter of persons, is the desire of their hearts strong enough to defy society’s expectations?

My Thoughts:

I have yet to read a Jagears novel that I didn’t love, but I wasn’t prepared to love this one quite as much as I did. I expected a fun love story, which I got. I expected a strong historical western setting, which I got. But I had no idea there would be such an adventure tucked away in the middle of this book! I won’t give anything away but it makes a great book even better. And the ending left me even more eager for the next installment.

Jagears does touch on physical abuse in a tender and encouraging way. And I appreciated the spiritual themes woven throughout the story.

Rating and Recommendations: I’m giving Marrying Mr. Wrong 5 stars. I highly recommend it to those looking for Christian Historical Romance, Christian Western Romance, or an opposites attract romance.
