This is one of Marica's best short stories! It's unusual since it's a modern-day setting but I loved it because I could totally relate to it! I'm sure many of us have had a crush on a boss or co-worker at one time or another. This is a great book to put in a gift basket at Christmastime for a girlfriend or in a fun "stress relief" gift basket.:) One of the best things about Marcia's books is that they are probably the most romantic I've ever read but they stay clean. That way, you feel comfortable recommending them to anyone. Thanks for another great read, Marcia!

Marcia McClure once again offers up and simply delightful and delicious romantic tale in An Old Fashioned Romance. To me this had all the earmarks of a great 'Hallmark' movie. Break McCall lives in the city but has country in her blood. She is the great-granddaughter of of Jackson McCall (from Desert Fire) and the niece of Michael McCall (from To Echo the Past). She has sweet childhood memories of going to her uncle's ranch with it's wide open spaces and seeing all the fun interaction of family and hearing stories of her great grandfather. She feels such a connection with that way of life. The one perk of working in the city however, is her boss, Reece Thatcher.

Reece Thatcher is a great investigator. Working for Wilson Investigations is something to be proud of. But he was beginning to hate his job. All he sees are the ugly things in life. Especially infidelity. He's not really a city boy at heart but he can't really go home either. Well, he can, but a certain memory prevents him from even considering it. He really likes Break McCall. She's been his assistant for awhile and she's different from other women he's come across. When her friends ask him to dress up like her favorite book character and come to the restaurant where they are having dinner something happens that will change the future for them forever.

I just LOVE the way this author writes. Reese was such a great guy. He loved his family and had such a great respect for them. He really is a hero. Breck was a fun character. The inter-play with her friends is a lot of fun and laughs. I loved the way she wrote into this story that Breck's favorite book was The Highwayman of Tanglewood. What a great touch.

An excellent display of the seasons of Autumn and Winter, naturally set in a modern day situation, with modern trials of the heart. It contains a great view of how both individuals see a relationship, as well as what each person is worth, and their views of the other. This book shows the simple, yet priceless, joys of life, and what it really is worth living for.

Marcia Lynn McClure definitely has a way with clean romance novels, unfortunately I think this one fell short of the mark. When Marcia writes about the old west she is amazing. I even love her romance novels with Dukes and Highwaymen. This book takes place in the current day and just isn't as exciting. Breck is the Great-Granddaughter of Jackson McCall who is the hero in Desert Fire which was a great book. She lives in a city and yearns for the country. She has a crush on her boss Reese who is a farm boy moved into the city. There are some cute parts but as with a couple of Marcia's books I feel like more character development would have held the readers interest better and made for a more endearing love story.
Final word: I love Marcia Lynn McClure books overall. I would recommend the old west ones before this one though.

So in this book we have Breck McCall who is in love with her gorgeous boss Reese Thatcher. Breck doesn't see herself as someone who would catch Reese's eye. She is a honest, sweet and caring person. A country girl trapped in the city, Little does she know that Reese is just a country boy lost in the city too. Thanks to some sneaky work by her good friends, they arrange for Reese to surprise Breck on her birthday as a character out of her favorite book. The night of her birthday they share a kiss and this opens up the opportunity to explore something more than a employee/boss relationship. They proceed with their relationship, even spending the holidays with Reese's family. After spending Thanksgiving at his family's farm Reese realizes what he wants most and that is his country life back with Breck by his side.

Mrs. McClure's books are new to me. I am not one who tends to read books that have a religious tone to them, but I loved this one. She did an awesome job at writing this one to appeal to all audiences. She did not compromise the integrity of her work to do so and I applaud her for that. She kept the clean format but the romance was still in the forefront. Her characters have depth and and are easily relatable.
I like the joke she had in the book about the McCall Ranch. It is call El Costa Lotta McCall Ranch. Reese said he didn't get it at first and sadly neither did I. I admit it that one went over my head. (:
Kay is like me, an avid reader and wanted to tell the world about the books you read. That's why I started a blog. All of Breck's friends, or as Reese calls them the Pumpkin Sweater club, are great friends that we all wish we had.
I liked the romance between Breck and Reese.
