Publisher's Summary

Patience Cavanaugh has lost hope in romance. The man she yearned to marry is dead, and her dreams are gone with him. Now she is consumed with restoring a dilapidated boardinghouse in order to support herself.

Despite Patience's desire for solitude, Jedediah Jones, the local marshal with a reputation for hanging criminals, becomes an ever-looming part of her life. It seems like such a simple arrangement: She needs someone with a strong back to help her fix up the boardinghouse. He needs a dependable source of food for himself and his prisoners. But as she gets to know this "hanging lawman", Patience finds there is far more to him than meets the eye - and it could destroy their tenuous relationship forever.

With a keen eye for historical detail and a deft hand at romantic tension, Maggie Brendan invites you to a Montana gold rush boomtown where vices and virtues are on full display and love is lying in wait.

Good story, though it dragged in places.

The characters were interesting, the reading was done well. The flow of the story slowed down in places.

Likable Characters, But a Bit Too Sentimental

Overall, this is a good story with engaging characters. I liked that they were multidimensional. There's enough going on with the plot to keep your attention: romance, character growth, a bit of a mystery. However the overly sentimental tone really started to get to me after a while.

If you're in the mood for something in this vein, it won't disappoint. But if you get impatient with Hallmark movies, you might want to pass on this one.

P.S. The narration was great.

Another great Christian book

I loved this book. It was great to hear the author's note at the end of the book. to know that some of the places were real places and some of the people were real people. I really appreciated that it is a clean book. I highly recommend this book to one and all. I am waiting for Ms brennan to write more books.
