Fall for Love. Take a Chance...

City girl Connie Oliver has a hard time hanging on to men, grooms in particular. Just nine weeks before her wedding, she's seen another one slip away. To make matters worse, her ailing grandfather's eightieth birthday is approaching, and he has one final wish: to see his last granddaughter married in the historic wedding gown that was first worn by his late wife and has been a family tradition for years. When her sister takes Connie on a girls' getaway in the wild to soothe her latest heartache, she quips that Connie wouldn't know a decent man if he fell on her. So, when a handsome stranger drops out of the trees, Connie's got to wonder whether he's some sort of madman - or an answer to her prayers.

Rugged outdoorsman "Mac" McCormack is down on his luck after having just lost his camping store in a forest fire. So he hits the trail to forget his woes and plot his next move. Little does Mac expect the fates to deliver an angel with a predicament in need of his skills. With Connie desiring a groom and Mac requiring a down payment, their meeting seems fortuitously timed. But how far will Mac be willing to go once he learns play-acting for the Olivers is not such smooth sailing? Despite the mishaps and mayhem that ensue, can Connie and Mac achieve an authentic happy ending? That all depends on whether both of their hearts can take a chance.

A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy.
Standard novella-length, approximately 25,000 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find a cozy chair, and prepare to be entertained 27 March 2015

This book is exactly what the description says - A sweet comedic tale about love and taking chances.

If you are looking for a feel-good, humorous, quick read, then you should enjoy this. Do not expect anything more than what is advertised. Simply sit back in a comfortable chair and have fun! So what if there are a few scenes that are a bit hokey, laugh about it and enjoy the moment. Since when does everything in life have to be serious?

I read all sorts, but I love to return to these types of books because I don't have to worry about turning the page and being offended with language, graphic sex, or other offensive content. This book is appropriate for all ages. It doesn't take long to read, so treat it as an entertaining interlude between other, more serious tomes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect prescription for my reading rut! 13 January 2016
By Dora Hiers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After her latest fiance dumped her (#3 or 4?), Connie Oliver needs a groom and a wedding to satisfy her beloved grandfather. Mac McCormack needs money to rebuild his camping store after a forest fire destroyed it. Their cute meet in the wilderness extends to Mac masquerading as her fiance in exchange for enough money to begin the rebuilding.

"Sometimes you had to make sacrifices in order to achieve your goals."

This was the first book that I've read by Ginny Baird, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Tagged "A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy" perhaps I should've, but this was laugh-out-loud funny!

At 113 pages, including previews of other books, Must-Have Husband is a quick read, definitely PG but not in a turn-the-page-quick kinda way, and not heavy or meaty in plot or character development or even romance. I would've liked more pages, more time for the romance to develop. But I've been in a reading rut lately. Sometimes you just need something different, you know? This short read was the perfect prescription for me.

Because of its petite size and zippy dialog, it's a light, fun read to while away an hour or so. I'll definitely look through Baird's other books for more laugh-out-loud enjoyment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Family heirloom 14 April 2016

Connie was the last Granddaughter to get married. She just kept loosening her grooms. Linda took her out to the wilderness for a sisters getaway. While hiking it got dark sooner than they expected. The rain hit. They left the trail to get some shelter. Not they are lost. They see a light. They find a camp but no one was there. A cute humorous story. Really enjoyed it. Hope you will too.

Ginny Baird has been one of my favorite authors from her first book. I've followed her career from the beginning, and I honestly can say her stories are sweet, thought provoking, and a must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good contemporary romance 4 August 2013
By Cindy DeGraaff - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think this is the first book I have read by this author, and I was favorably impressed. The story was well written, professionally edited, the characters were interesting and the plot, while revolving around the characters, was well done. I think every family has a person like Carrie, who is a bit of a late bloomer and has to try out a lot of career options before finding their specific niche. Pressure from the family never helps, and almost always causes them to try to fit the mold, but that just doesn't work for them, just like Carrie in this story. It took a rugged outdoorsman who ran a camping supply store, not a professor, doctor or lawyer to finally be the one for her. I also loved the idea of the heirloom wedding dress and the book of rules. The book of rules and the security parrot gave me a good laugh. This was a sweet, enjoyable read.

Heat factor mild.
