Last winter I saw a recommendation on Facebook group for this rom-com. I listened to it on Hoopla and I am so glad I did! It was one of the funniest books I have listened to as the narrator’s characterization of each of the characters was perfect, especially Big Tim Creighton.
Wealthy Lady Sydney Hathwell left England to marry an American businessman after her father’s passing. With thoughts of love and a new life, Sydney is in for a rude awakening as her fiancé only sees their marriage as a business arrangement. Being totally repulsed by the thoughtless and greedy man, Sydney sees only one option: flee. Thus begins the adventure of “Syd” as she tries to pass herself off as a young man on her uncle’s Texas cattle ranch.
The funny things and misunderstandings that happen to Syd had me laughing throughout the book. Big Tim thinks Syd is a sissy and is trying to make “him” into a man, including putting weights on his hips to correct the way he walks. Syd finds purpose, love, and acceptance with the people of Gooding, Texas. After I finished listening to it, I wanted to start all over. It was that good.
If you are looking for a side-splitting, faith-filled book, then I think you will enjoy reading the first book of the two in the Only in Gooding series.
