Overview

A Week from Sunday by Dorothy Garlock

Adrianna Moore has just had a double shock: the death of her father and the discovery that he has left his entire estate to his lawyer. The lawyer, a repulsive social climber, tells her that to regain her inheritance, she must marry him A WEEK FROM SUNDAY. Adrianna takes off, driving desperately to a new life. Caught in a violent rainstorm, she collides with an oncoming truck. Quinn Baxter, the driver of the truck, demands repayment for his lost cargo. They reach a bargain: she will live in his home, tutor his bedridden younger brother, and play piano in Quinn's tavern to pay off her debt. Drawn to the rugged Quinn, challenged by the interaction with the tavern patrons, she also must deal with an intractable foe--Quinn's housekeeper who is scheming to become his wife. And all the while, the spurned lawyer is following Adrianna's trail, determined to find her and force her to marry him.

I am an avid reader who sometimes get stuck with the same authors. I look forward to the discounted books as it gives you the opportunity to experience new authors. This book was an easy read to the point I became a part of the charaters. It was a page turner and I read it in one day. I just could not put the book down. It is a must read.

I couldn't put it down once I was past the 2nd chapter. One of the best books I've read in awhile.

Twenty-one year old heiress Adrianna Moore has no time to grieve the death of her father when she learns he placed the family fortune in a trust fund totally controlled by his former banking partner attorney Richard Pope. To make matters worse for the despondent Adrianna, Richard blithely informs her she will marry him next week. --- Adrianna refuses to allow an odious lecher like Richard run her life. Instead while he is away on business, she flees her home only to lose control during inclement weather and crashes into a truck in Louisiana. The truck driver Quinn Baxter offers Adriana work while her automobile is repaired and to pay off the damage she caused to his vehicle she will play the piano in his bar and to help him and his nasty Cajun housekeeper Lola Oxnard with his teenage handicapped brother. As Quinn notices how kind Adrianna is to his sibling, they fall in love. However, Lola tries to destroy their relationship as she intends to wed the bar owner sans his brother and Richard is coming for his ¿fiancée¿. --- Dorothy Garlock fans will appreciate this entertaining romance in which extreme good battles against excessive evil. Adrianna is a wonderful person who refuses to be pushed into a marriage she does not want nor allow anyone to hurt Quinn¿s brother. Besides the bad duo having no redeeming qualities and deserve each other (not sure why Quinn employed Lola), the relationship between the lead couple is pleasant to follow as Adrianna brings a caring heart to the Baxter brothers. Readers will enjoy this Bayou battle. --- Harriet Klausner

I thought this book was very good eventhough, I guessed she would never leave. It is easy to read and keeps you interested. I have read Dorothy Garlock books before and have never been disappointed.

This is a typical Dorothy Garlock book. I love her accuracy in telling about life in the early 1900's. This is one of those books that you don't want to put down at night , but yet you don't want it to be over either. It has all of Dorothy Garlock's trademarks, romance, humor, suspence, murder, all leading up to a climatic but happy ending. She knows how to write about romance without TOO much of the trashy sex scenes that so many other authors feel is needed. I have read nothing but Dorothy Garlock books for the past 6 to 8 months and have become hooked on her style.

¿An Author to Watch¿ 5 stars
Adrianna¿s wealthy father passed away. The day of the funeral, she is told that she must marry his attorney, who she detests with every reason to do so. She runs away to a small, poor town. She meets a man who is rough around the edges but sweet in the middle. Will she choose love or money? Will she be able to avoid the forced marriage?
Books such as this spurred my love for reading many years ago. It is always such a joy to see an author who can engage a reader from the first sentence. Garlock is one of those authors. This is one to read and recommend.

Dorothy Garlock is one of the romance suspense writers masters. She creates stories with twists and turns that keeps you turning pages. Adrianna Moore learns after her father¿s death he¿d made his attorney the executor of his entire estate. The attorney tells Adrianna if she wants to enjoy any of ¿her¿ money, even though she¿s of age, she has to marry him A Week from Sunday. On the way to her aunt¿s home she drives her car, head-on, into Quinn Baxter¿s truck destroying all his stock. Quinn is not hurt but his piano player Roy is. He tells Adrianna she has to pay to replace the stock and she tells him she hasn¿t any money but she¿s willing to pay her debt by playing the piano in his tavern until Roy is able to play again. He agrees. The attorney, looking for her, stumbles into the tavern and is surprised to see her sitting at the piano playing. He tells her she¿s to come with him. She declines and Quinn chases him off. In the meantime, who¿s feeding Adrianna poison? Adrianna wasn¿t written as the little helpless female but as a strong female who fights back.
