A Sweet Misfortune

A Sweet Misfortune
Virtues and Vices of the Old West Book 2
Maggie Brendan
Rachel is left alone in town when her brother, Preston, heads out to find gold. The siblings lost their farm and Preston's friend John buys the land and agrees to sell it back to Preston if he can raise the money in a certain amount of time. When Preston learns that Rachel is working as a dance hall girl to earn money, he writes to John and asks for his help. At first Rachel is furious with John's interference in her life. But she soon learns to love the ranch and the family who is so graciously offering their home and their hearts.

The plot was easy to read and I was able to finish the book rather quickly. Several of the secondary characters were fun and added to the overall story. The author was able to bring the scenery alive so that I could easily picture the surroundings.

The romance between the main couple was really lacking for me. Several elements seemed added as filler and didn't really fit into the plot. There wasn't a lot of depth to the plot or most of the characters. The guys who were interested in Rachel were very superficial and moved on too quickly for their supposed interest.

Overall, it was a story that I enjoyed because it was entertaining and was a quick read. I would recommend this book if you want a fun way to pass the time.

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