Overview

A sweet comedic tale about love and taking chances. Based on a true tradition! 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.

    ~My review~
    By Ana Rodriguez.
    Once I started reading My Lucky Groom by author Ginny Baird, it was nearly impossible for me to put it down and stop reading.
    This book is a short story in Ginny's Summer Grooms Series.( Book #2)
    Back to my review. Ventura finds herself in Washington, DC. for an opportunity in finding a job in journalism because she has a master's degree in journalism. Leaving from home for the first time and feeling overwhelmed being on her own,Ventura felt a bit scared.
    Being new to Washington and now sitting in a café were she was serviced by a waitress named Mary.
    A clumsy accident in front of her taking place. Ventura hears a mans voice.
    “I’m sorry! Are you all right?”, he asked.
    Ventura nods her head completely taken off guard watching.
    I found this scene a bit funny as I read it, I was laughing out loud as Mary the waitress shooed the man away from Ventura. Mary was being protective of Ventura. Girls have to stick together. Every character had a unique playing role in this story, that came perfectly.
    The character I loved the most was Mary in this story. Mary was like Ventura’s savor taking her in and give her a place to live. I found Mary supporting role in guiding Ventura in any way needed.
    Richard Blake a single father and a handsome bachelor in need of a nanny for his kids. Jason the assistant to Richard Blake.
    Richard was very grateful to have Jason as an assistant and friend.
    Jason would pick up some nanny duties in addition to his demanding job.
    To me Ventura seemed a bit naive to the new world in Washington.
    Her parents broken marriage pushed her on her new journey adventure in a new city, without a job.
    Ventura had a job interview. As she looked at the map she had in her hand she knew she was lost. Ventura was not going to make her interview on time or at all.
    “Need help?” a man’s voice asked.
    “Richard!”
    “So where you headed?”
    “I have an interview on K Street.”
    I found it funny on how Richard slipped in and told her he had an job opening at home.
    Richard explained to Ventura he needed a nanny for his kids.
    Ventura turned him down on his job offer.
    After having no luck with any job at all Ventura swallows her pride and calls Richard for an interview.
    Richard hires Ventura as his new nanny for his five year old twins, Ricky and Elisa.
    Ventura’s adventure starts after that in her new nanny job.
    Soon she learns Richard’s kids are no angels. Since it’s a short story I don’t want to give it away.
    But just let me say that the attraction with Ventura and Richard blooms fully unto a great story.
    It’s not every day that I come across a story that I absolutely can’t stop reading.
    Having twins of my own as I read, I found myself smiling throughout the story and Ventura's adventures.I think Ginny Baird did great in writing out each character in this book.
    While reading this story , I enjoyed on how real the story seemed.
    Ventura’s fate was Richard and the love that blossomed was their fate. I finished reading this book with a smile on my face.
    I recommend this book for any one up for a great love story.
    You'll be happy you did. I was.

    MUST-HAVE HUSBAND By Ginny Baird ¿Mac¿ McCormack is at his frie

    MUST-HAVE HUSBAND By Ginny Baird

    “Mac” McCormack is at his friend Hank's lodge and is going to do some hiking and camping. His store burned down and the insurance company says there's a clause about forest fires.
    Connie Oliver is at the mountain with the girls. A girls weekend and she is then to be married. Problem is Walt has moved onto somebody new already and moved in with her.
    Their grandfather raised all the girls and he wants to see this last one married wearing the hand me down wedding gown. He's just 80 now...
    Mac's friend is always trying to set him up. Connie's sister is always trying to set her up, with a date.
    Connie and her sister Linda are lost in the forest and it's raining and lightening. They search and walk around and find a campfire and a coffeepot brewing.
    Love hearing how he kept the wood dry and hoisted his food up into the tree on a pulley, good skills.
    Mysteries of a rope burn and a noose get hem thinking.... Connie wants to rent him and bring him to the family party in Napa where the family owns a winery. Linda doesn't think that's such a good idea.
    Connie makes Mac the proposal and he accepts, he can use the money for his business, now he has to pretend to be her fiance. Love the grandfather's tradition on his birthday when it comes to the meal.
    Such a fun light reading book to immerse myself into. Love the locale and tips for hiking..
    When the magical dress arrives her mother has a new plan of action.... Love how the story is told and in only 59 pages. Another author would drag it out over 300 pages. Can't wait for the other books in this series.
    Love Connie's choice of a career and the ending where the author tells us more about the book, tradition and the series.
