The Rancher's Want Ad Mix-Up

The Rancher's Want Ad Mix-Up 
By Megan Besing 

Della Mae Wagner thought her dream of being a teacher had finally come true. The want ad she answered took her from Indiana to Missouri, but it wasn't a teacher that Roy and Alice Lamson were looking for but rather a wife for their widowed son and a mother for their grandsons. Della is shocked and dismayed to learn the truth. 

Hank Lamson is more than a little perturbed at his parents' underhanded method of attempting to find him a new wife. Worse he doesn't see the need of hiring a teacher - not with his ma handling the boys' schooling. Giving her seven days to prove herself seems the perfect way to get rid of her. After all, he knew what his boys were capable of and he knew how teachers could rile up a boy with their keeping of order. Nope, he'd soon be rid of Miss Wagner.

The Rancher's Want Ad Mix-Up is a sweet read. All isn't happy as Hank works through his broken heart at the loss of his first wife and the stream of "ladies" wanting to be the next Mrs. Lamson with access to his money. Della has her own heartbreak that she has had to deal with. It is interesting to see how they both deal with life so differently. Hank has turned his back on God, while Della sees Him in the everyday. I loved the way Hank's boys and parents came to appreciate and love Della. And then there is Mabel, who just might be my favorite literary chicken character ever.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.

After a broken engagement, marriage is not in Della’s plans. And Hank Lamson isn’t pleased—with his parents, with his unexpected guest or with Della’s unfairly appealing smile.
