Fancy Pants {book review}

Well, I did it!  I reached my goal of reading 12 books this year {1 per month} and it's only June 13th! 
Who would have thought I could do that?  Maybe I will have read 24 by the end of the year {but I highly doubt that.}?!
I have a list of "to read books" on my phone that I am trying to get through. {It's funny that the more I read, the more books I discover that I WANT to read!} We headed to the library and none of those books were available.  They have a bunch through their e-lending library but you can only borrow those for 7 days {which I would have to cram to read it all}, and I really do like holding a physical book better. So I grabbed this book, knowing nothing about it.
It was tagged as a Christian book, I liked the title, the cover was cute and the author is from Anaheim, California.  Therefore it MUST be a great read, right?  It's like women choosing which football team they are rooting for based on the colors of their uniform . . . not that I've ever done that before!
I LOVED this book!  Without giving away too much, it is set in 1890.  So imagine Lady Sybil {from Downton Abbey} being sent to America for a potential arranged marriage.  She devises a plan and ends up in Texas pretending to be a young man working on a ranch just to avoid that marriage.  Of course there's more to the story. But you will have to read it for yourself to find out! 
I give it 5 stars!

Go read it and tell me what you think?
