Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson $25 Amazon or Paypal Giveaway
After years of pinching pennies and struggling to get through art school, Emma Makie’s hard work finally pays off with the offer of a dream job. But when tragedy strikes, she has no choice but to make a cross-country move to Colorado Springs to take temporary custody of her two nieces. She has no money, no job prospects, and no idea how to be a mother to two little girls, but she isn’t about to let that stop her. Nor is she about to accept the help of Kevin Grantham, her handsome new neighbor, who seems to think she’s incapable of doing anything on her own.
Fun, compelling, and romantic, Prejudice Meets Pride is the story of a guy who thinks he has it all figured out and a girl who isn’t afraid to show him that he doesn’t. It’s about learning what it means to trust, figuring out how to give and to take, and realizing that not everyone gets to pick the person they fall in love with. Sometimes, love picks them
A USA Today bestselling author, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating
My Review: Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson
I enjoyed reading Prejudice Meets Pride. It was a quick romance story. The two little girls were so cute.
I liked the other characters too. This is a clean read.
Emma Makie is single and she has moved into her great Aunt's house in Colorado Springs with her two nieces.
Emma does not like to take charity or help. She is full of pride. She also does not see how turning her life inside out to help take care of her nieces is helping and giving to her family. Emma does not have a job and has credit cards. She does have a house that has not been lived in for a year. Emma is a talented artist. She hopes she can get a teaching art at a local school. I would love to have the girls room when she got it done.
Kajsa is six and a half. Adelynn is fourteen months younger. They are good friends and miss their dad.
Kevin lives next door. He is a children's dentist. He likes order but is willing to help when he can. Kevin's idea of helping and Emma's idea of not taking help crash into each other.
This is a charming read. As Kevin, Emma, Kajsa and Adelynn get to know each other better. They draw closer and closer.
Noah is the girl's father. He was a Mr. Mom while his wife finished school and became a lawyer. Then she died. Noah found a construction job away from home that had long hours.
Becky and her daughter Sam welcomed Emma and the girls into the neighborhood. Sam volunteered to baby sit the girls when Emma needed her to.
Their are going to be two other books in this series that I can't wait to read and see what happens next.
The setting for the book is Colorado Springs neighborhood.
I liked all the giggling in this story.
I was given this book to read for purpose of giving honest review of it and being part of its blog tour.
