This review is for the book "At Love's Bidding" by Regina Jennings. Miranda Wimplegate helps her grandfather run their Boston auction house. One day she realizes they have made a huge mistake and sold a prized portrait which belonged to one of the most powerful families in Boston. The family begins their threats, so Miranda and her grandfather take off in search of the portrait. They find themselves in Missouri, at the smelliest livestock auction house they could ever imagine. Miranda's grandfather bought the auction house without seeing it, so now they are stuck. Even worse, the man who runs the auction house, Wyatt, seems to be completely out of control.
Miranda desperately tries to track down the missing portrait as her grandfather seems to get in more and more trouble. Everyone seems to be in danger, Miranda can't figure out who to trust, and her grandfather is acting confused and violent. They head home, only to have the mystery solved right under their noses.
I enjoyed this book. I will admit the character of the grandfather really aggravated me, but I think the author was trying to show that his character was changing quite a bit from his "normal" personality.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
