I enjoyed my time in Bonneterre once again. This is book 3, the final book in this series, and it has been several years since I read books 1 and 2, but as I began to read I remembered the Guidry family and enjoyed getting to know them all over again by reading "A Case of Love". Could be read as a stand alone, though you will appreciate getting to know the other family members better if you read the whole series.

This story was about the oldest son, lawyer Forbes Guidry, who seems to have it all - a good job at a prestigious law firm, voted as Bonneterre's most eligible bachelor, with the looks to go with it, and a family who seems to have it all together and where they all get along and enjoy being around one another.

Enter Alaine Delacroix, one of Bonneterre's most eligible bachelorettes, who has an image of having it all together on her news-magazine program. These two will meet and both share an instant attraction to each other, BUT when Alaine finds out her parents' home and small business it threatened by the biggest corporation in town (which has the Guidry name attached to it), things get a little heated.

Alaine must learn to trust and hires Forbes to go to court for her family, and Forbes takes on this pro bono case and will learn he can't control everything as taking this case will alienate him from his family and perhaps cost him his job.

I liked the way these two main characters interacted with each other. It was fun to watch. I also enjoyed both of their families and the close bond they all seemed to share. It was well written and although there was obvious tension at times in the story, for the most part it was a delightful story, watching two people fall in love amidst a lot of controversy. ( )

Kaye Dacus has a way with storytelling that I really enjoy. With that said, I was not quite a fan of this book. The other books in the series I really like and her historical series I love. "A Case for Love" was an uncomfortable read almost the whole way through and I found myself stressed out for the characters not knowing how anything could end well. I don't recommend this to be your first read from Kaye Dacus, but I do recommend her over all. ( )

The Brides of Bonneterre trilogy ends with A Case of Love. Having seen the romances of Anne and Meredith in the first two books, it is exciting to see a story from the male POV.

Forbes Guidry, perpetual bachelor, is a successful lawyer (partner in the firm). He sees his cousin Anne and his sister Meredith are happily married and at his age (near 40) decides that he needs to start seriously thinking about finding a wife.

Aliana Delacroix hosts a daytime news magazine at the local TV station. They've met a few times but when they are thrown together at a new dance studio the sparks begin to fly.

Aliana in the meantime is looking for a lawyer to help her parents and their neighbors defend their homes from a major development takeover. Forbes offers his services pro bono before he realizes that this will pit him against his family and the law firm he is part of.

Having read the first two in the series, I can honestly say that it saddens me that there is only a trilogy with these characters. The series was uplifting both spiritually and emotionally, the characters were people that I would like to meet and the town sounds like a winner... IMO the series definitely is! ( )

This is the 3rd book of the Brides of Bonneterre Series. I have not read the other two books in the series so you might want to check them out as well. Forbes is the older brother of Meredith from book 2 and cousin to Anne from book one. Alaine is a good friend of Merediths. She is a reporter and host of her own news show. She wants to climb the ladder and become a big time news anchor. Alaine finds out that her family’s businesses are in jeopardy of being shut down so that a new development can come in. She soon finds out the how this is happening is shady at best and works to find a lawyer to help her family and friends.Forbes is a lawyer and sometimes takes pro bono cases on the side and circumstances lead him to be the lawyer for Alaine’s family. The problem is its Forbes family business who is behind the take over. Will God help Forbes make the right choice with out losing his family and the women he loves?This book almost became a DNF. I had a hard time getting into it at first. I also found the plot some what predictable. But I kept reading and once I got about 50% in I started to enjoy it more. The ending was okay and I admit to tearing up at the happy ending but the ending felt rushed and maybe a little unbelievable. The characters where well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them. I also wanted to learn more about Anne and Meredith. I felt the author does a good job of incorporating the other two book characters with out over powering the story at hand. But in the end this was just a so so book for me. I don’t see myself picking up the first two books unless they are on sale or free at some point. *I received this book from the publisher to review through netgalley* ( )

This is the third - and final - installment in the Brides of Bonneterre series by Kaye Dacus. I enjoyed this story just as I enjoyed the first two. I've become attached to the characters, feel as if I've known them forever. So sad to not be able to follow them along the rest of their journeys (see? I think they're real people!).Kaye's stories are well written, easy to follow, with likeable characters that you can relate to. I look forward to reading more from her. ( )
