About the book:
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 the restoration of a dilapidated boarding house in order to support herself. Despite her desire for solitude, Jedediah Jones, the local sheriff with a reputation for hanging criminals, becomes an ever-looming part of her life. It seems like such a simple arrangement: Patience needs someone with a strong back to help her fix up the boardinghouse, and Jedediah needs a dependable source of food for himself and his prisoners. But Patience gets more than she bargained for as she explores the depths of the "hanging lawman"--and finds both betrayal and love.
About this author:
This is the first book I have read by Maggie Brendan but it won't be my last! Patience is as spunky as they come and I love spunky, feisty leading ladies, and Patience is just one of those. Her name should be Impatient. Her and the sheriff hit it right off, and I'm being factious. The cover is adorable and the book is full of virtues and vices, the tag line of the series. Highly recommended!
