The Trouble With Patience
Virtues And Vices Of The Old West book 1
by Maggie Brendan
-From the back cover-
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 Jone, 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.
Historical romance in the Old West
The Trouble With Patience was the first book I've read by Maggie Brendan and I have to say that it really was a sweet historical romance. In many ways it reminded me of those early historicals by Lori Wick etc. that I read as a teen.
I did catch a few historical inaccuracies but to anyone less familiar with Montana history they would likely go unnoticed.
