At Love's Bidding: A Book Review
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.

With delightful characters like Miranda and Wyatt, strong storylines that kept my attention throughout and great writing style, At Love's Bidding was a fun read! While it did start a little slower than I typically like a book to start, by the time the first quarter of the book was read, I was drawn in completely. A lighthearted read that all fans of historical fiction will enjoy to be sure!
I highly recommend this book and give this book a huge thumbs up!
