Hattie Walker dreams of becoming a painter, while her parents want her to settle down. As a compromise, they give her two months to head to Denver and place her works in an exhibition or give up the dream forever. Her journey is derailed when a gunman attacks her stagecoach, leaving her to be rescued by a group of Arapaho . . . but she’s too terrified to recognize them as friendly.
Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home–and plead his case once more.
He’s stunned to run into Hattie Walker, the girl who shattered his heart–but quickly realizes he has a chance to impress her. When his plan gets tangled through translation, Jack and Hattie end up in a mess that puts her dreams in peril–and tests Jack’s resolve to remain single.
Genre: Historical fiction.
My Rating: 4 stars.
My Recommendation: 15 up because of romance.
My favorite character: This one goes to Jack, sheesh does he deserves it after the start of this book!
My verse for Jack is Ecclesiastes 3:4
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: This book! It is another enjoyable historical read by Regina Jennings, a little like When Calls The Heart which is funny because one of the characters is named Jack. Can I just say how much I love historical fiction, and this book is a very good historical romance, and an enjoyable romance at that! Jennings didn’t focus solely on romance she took romance and wove it into a realistic, funny, and yet serious novel all wrapped up in a bow, eh, uniform.
Something that made it even more enjoyable was how accurate it was and that it showed throughout the whole book even the characters and their interactions! I think this pushed Jennings into my top 10 favorite historical authors!
And When Calls The Heart fans will love this book!
P.S. The cover has my favorite color which made me love it even more! 😉
I received this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it!
