The Trouble With Patience

The Trouble With Patience
Virtues and Vices of the Old West Book 1
Maggie Brendan
 Patience lost the man she thought she was going to marry. So when she inherits her grandmother's boarding house she leaves home with the determination to make a new home for herself. Almost immediately she gets on the wrong side of Jedediah, the local marshall. She bakes him breakfast to ask his forgiveness and a tenuous arrangement is made. Patience will make breakfast for his men and Jedediah will help fix up her boarding house.

The story was sweet. It had a small bit of drama, but mostly it was romantic and fun. The author did a great job of making the two main characters engaging and entertaining. They both had flaws and issues they needed to work out, but this added instead of detracted from the story. It also made them more relatable. The secondary characters really help set the mood for the story and I look forward to reading more about them in the next few books. I liked how messages of forgiveness and faith were subtly woven into the story. If you are looking for a sweet, christian romance with a little bit of mystery than I would definitely recommend this book.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
