Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings (Blogmas Day 6)

Sorry this is late. Also, I know this isn't Christmas but I couldn't really wait for this one. I hope you'll forgive me and enjoy it anyway! Look for Christmas stuff to come back tomorrow, and an interview very soon.

Louisa was the best singer the Cat-Eye saloon had ever had, but when she's replaced by someone younger, she has no place to go. Unless she goes out west to keep an eye on her little brother, who just can't seem to stay out of mischief! And then... horror of all horrors, she's mistaken for a governess. With her heart at stake, can Louisa keep up the act, or will she be turned away forever?

This book deserves 5 stars. If you've never read a book by Regina Jennings before (which I'll admit, was me...) this is a great book to make you a fan for life. I got to the end and searched frantically for some sort of blurb for a sequel. Thankfully this is book one in a series, because I'd go crazy if this was all I ever got to see of these now beloved characters. At first glance, you may think "Oh, been there, read that" but phooey on you. You haven't met the likes of Bradley Willis, impetuous but good, or Louisa, who is this strange dichotomy in and of herself. You may have met a doppelganger but each one is different. And the life at the fort, well, actually poor Louisa didn't get out much, so that takes backseat to the real issues here. I love seeing both sides of the Indian argument here. Or rather, many different sides, since there are rarely ever only two ways to look at an issue this big. I'm so glad i read this book, and you will be too! It's a treat, and I was hard-pressed to put it down. I hope you'll enjoy this book (With the beautiful lavender cover and the raised lettering) as much as I did.

Sorry, that's a terrible picture. Anyway, thank you to Bethany House Publishers for this book.
