Forbes Guidry is well-known around town, both from family ties and the name he has created for himself as one of Bonneterre’s best lawyers. He also happens to be one of the Bonneterre’s most eligible bachelors.

Love literally walks into Forbes one evening in the form of Alaine Delacroix, a local tv news reporter. Before their relationship has a chance to develop, Alaine finds herself at odds with Forbes ~ his family owns a corporation that is threatening to demolish the community she grew up in, one where her family still resides and works. Alaine attempts to help her family by getting a pro bono lawyer ~ Forbes Guidry.

Forbes is put in a difficult position. He stands the chance of losing things that are precious to him ~ his lifelong ties with his family and his newly developed feelings for Alaine. Will God intervene and show him a way to keep both?

My Thoughts

From start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed this book ~ I even stayed up far too late in an attempt to read it in just one night. Dacus has created some wonderful characters that pull you into the story ~ from the immediate family members to the diverse ethnic community that is threatened with demolition.

Truthfully, I’m a little saddened that it is the last book in the series, because there are other family members that I would enjoy reading more about! A Case for Love is the third book in the Brides of Bonneterre series by Kaye Dacus, following Stand-in Groom and Menu for Romance

If you enjoy historical fiction, Kaye also has another wonderful series set in the early 1800’s ~ the Ransome Trilogy. The first book in that series, Ransome’s Honor is currently available and the second Ransome’s Crossing ~ I loved the first book so much I’ve already pre-ordered the second! 

Be sure to visit Kaye’s website where she shares writing tips and insights. Her site is one that I visit almost daily and really enjoy the various series that she has provided.

What {else} I’m Reading
Be sure to stop by and visit 5 Minutes for Books and their monthly meme called "What's on Your Nightstand?" and also the Saturday Review.

  1. I'll have to jot those names down on my list for the used bookstore. They sound good. The only problem is, the really good Christian fiction is always so expensive at the used bookstore. You might as well pay full price most of the time. I love a good romance, though, so I'll keep an eye out for those.

  3. I'd really like to read more of Lou Priolo's books. I'm reading "Pleasing People" by Priolo right now. Good but very convicting. Hard to read at times.
