“The Texan's Inherited Family” by Noelle Marchand

About the Book 

A Father in the Making 

Busy Texas farmer Quinn Tucker is used to raising crops, not children. So when four nieces and nephews are left in his care, it's not long before he realizes they need a mother. But his search for a wife leads to the least likely woman for illiterate Quinn—schoolmarm Helen McKenna. 

City girl Helen has been told she'll never have children—and, it seems, a husband. So she jumps at the chance to be a mother to Quinn's little family. Though he is far from her image of an ideal husband, maybe a marriage in name will blossom into something more…

My Review
“The Texan's Inherited Family” by Noelle Marchand is the first book in her 'Bachelor List Matches' which is a spin off from her book “A Texas-Made Match”. It is not important to read that book or the other books in the same series with that book, for this is a book that sets off something really amazing. I am really looking forward to the rest of the books in this series and frankly I wonder if I already see one couple being matched and if I am right about the couple that should be a pretty explosive relationship.

Here is a story that is all about overcoming misconceptions. Misconceptions of what one believes about oneself. Misconceptions of what one is told to be the truth. Misconceptions of what others think of oneself. Overcoming these misconceptions are not always easy and certainly not simple for the most part. In order for things to come together at the end a lot of things have to fall into place if people are willing to take that step.

It seems as if both Quinn and Helen have secrets that they don't want to come out even as they join forces for the sake of Quinn's nieces and nephews. Life is certainly not easy as they learn about family life that is for sure while protecting themselves from what they are so sure they know what is going to happen. Then things take a twist that oh boy did I never see coming that is for sure. When I say that I didn't see what was coming I have to say that with complete emotion for WOW that was a shocker that is for sure.

I have to say that there are quite a few things going on at one time throughout the story and is all written in such a way that really they all seem to blend perfectly with each other. There are the issues with secrets, issues with the kids, issues with job and issues with the past, yet it never seemed as if there was too much going on at one time so that there wasn't a moment when things seemed to be slow in the slightest.

I truly hope that all who read this book enjoys it as much as I did.
