For the Roses by Julie Garwood , 497 pages, read by Angie, on 05/28/2012

Four young boys are living on the streets of New York when suddenly a woman throws a basket into their alley. The basket will change their world. The basket contains a baby girl. The boys decide to leave the city and raise the girl. They end up in Blue Belle, Montana and the become the Clayborne family: Adam, Douglas, Clay, Travis and Mary Rose. Together they build a life and a family, but it is all going to change when Harrison McDonald comes to town. He is looking for the long lost daughter of his employer and thinks he has found her in Mary Rose. But he has also found the woman he loves and wants to spend the rest of his life with.

This is a fun, easy romance book. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters; everyone has their own voice and they are all interesting and entertaining. The romance and the story progress naturally and in a fun to read way. Mary Rose and Harrison are obviously meant for each other they just have to figure out how to live with each other. Julie Garwood is good for historical romances and this one doesn’t disappoint.
