*it with one *with one woman I don t usually have problems with a story that presents the less savory slices of life IF the presentation doesn t fall into predictable or feel contrived Unfortunately throughout the story I could predict when the next stumbling block would occur predict Maggie s overreaction with anger or fear predict the outcome when she met the mysterious stranger There were several moments where I just had to roll my eyes Left by her parents untimely deaths to take care of and raise her ounger siblings a poor white sharecropper s daughter is traveling with her mulatto former slavewe just start from there and go downhill A shooting a rape the condemnation of a very constrained and defined Christian household there were far too many ideas and elements thrown together to give any sort of validity to the feel of the story and reading after about 46% started to feel like a chore Sadly there was no surprise for me nothing to keep me intrigued and the story uickly faded from memory I received an eBook copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review All conclusions are my own responsibilit. G an empire in the South Maggie knows he wants the right kind of wife to overcome the shadows surrounding his birth someone like the well connected widow he's been courting Someone a million miles from a penniless outspoken sharecropper's daughter But neither jealousy family secrets nor long held prejudices will keep Maggie from following her heart. ,

was disappointed that this story did not live up to my expectations This is being published after the death of the author so maybe it didn t get all of the re write that it would have if she was still with usThere are other aspects of the story that I was not thrilled with but don t want to write any spoilers I did like the premise of the story but the execution of it was not good at all I Honestly Don T Know honestly don t know I will read anything else my this author or not after reading thisThanks go to eKensington for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review I haven t encountered too many romances set in the post Civil War South And I can fairly say that I haven t come across too many romances like The Right Wife either Readers should be aware that this book has its uncomfortable moments involving race together with some uncomfortably rapey moments and religious stereotyping There is something about it that really stands out though It s that vivid but difficult to completely categorize uality I like to call WTF eryWith her sharecropper father now dead 18 Convaincre en moins de 2 minutes year old Maggie Campbell now must find a way to provide for herself and her twoounger siblings When her aunt and uncle volunteer to take them Maggie agrees and as the book opens she is leaving Tennessee for Tuscambia Alabama At the train station the family is drawn into a

is left all atwitter about her brief encounter with the virile stranger And naturally Aaron and his friend Thayer are headed to Tuscambia themselves So what s the conflict Well we re going to have so many to pick from First of all Aaron has a somewhat mysterious and perhaps even shady past Maggie on the other hand is going to live with an aunt who is very religious and whose son is the local minister This isn t an inspirational so don t be surprised when aunt and son turn out To Be Narrowminded Hypocritical Prudes Oh And If The Religious be narrowminded hypocritical prudes Oh and if the religious isn t enough be warned that the author does use the offensive racial language typical of the book s setting at various points in the storyThis is a partial review You can find the complete
