This will be one of my last posts of 2021, but I wanted to take a moment to show you a wonderful new book that would be Perfect for your TBR pile next year. So without further ado, let me take you to the beautiful Crystal Cave that’s discovered in Proposing Mischief by Regina Jennings!

From The Back Cover
Maisie Kentworth is being forced to stay on her parents’ ranch. After a short-lived relationship with the wrong man, she’s worried about inflaming things further between her former beau and her protective family. Left to rue her mistakes, she keeps busy exploring the idle mine at the edge of their property, where she discovers a great treasure.
Boone Bragg is also stuck. With his parents on vacation, the management of Bragg Mining falls on him, and one of his advisors wants him as a son-in-law. One wrong move, and Boone will end up either offending an associate or marrying a woman he can’t endure.
While closing up a spent mine, Boone gets two surprises. One is a spitfire farm girl who’s trespassing with a pickax, and the other is the amazing crystal cavern that she’s discovered. Suddenly Boone sees a way to overhaul the family business. With part of the cavern on Kentworth land, Boone makes Maisie a proposal that he hopes will solve all of their problems. Instead it throws Joplin into chaos, and it will take all of Maisie’s gumption to set things right

What Did I Think?
This is the second book in the Joplin Chronicles and although it can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading book one (Courting Misfortune) first because it gives you insight into the short-lived relationship she had with Silas Marsh. I always like reading about the Characters that Regina Jennings creates, but I have to say that I love Maisie! She is so sweet, yet kind of Tom-boyish and I love how she isn’t afraid to say what’s on her mind (which makes for some HILARIOUS situations!!) I also loved reading about how Maisie and Boone started their marriage as a business proposal and yet, start to fall in love while wrestling with each other on the floor. Another awesome detail is the Crystal Cave that Maisie and Boone found because it was a real attraction! Regina Jennings described it in such a way that I wish I could have seen it because I feel like it would be the most remarkable sight!
Overall, this book is hilarious and was so good that I read it in one afternoon. I loved everything about it and it’s definitely going to be one I read over and over. This book was also a great reminder to me that God has a plan for each of us, even when we don’t see it and it also reminded me that when you find the person God created just for you (husband or wife), they won’t want to change you, because they love you for just the way you are. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to anyone!
