"The Trouble With Patience," by Maggie Brendan

"The Trouble With Patience," by Maggie Brendan
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.

This is the first book in Maggie's series called "Virtues and Vices of the Old West."  It was a very nice book that I read over a couple of afternoons.  It kept me interested and it's a book, where you will figure out quickly what will happen in the end.  The lead up to the ending makes for good reading.  There is a bit of a mystery going on and again you will figure out what's what.

Stars out of 5 : 3.5  Will I remember this book next month; no.  It's one of those book's to read when you have a few hours to fill.  It's a pleasant read that won't stress you out and you can be thinking of other things.  The epilogue was a surprise in a sense as I thought Emily's quest to find love would be another book.  Again the author's note at the back provided a couple of interesting facts, worth reading.
