Book Review: The Trouble with Patience

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.

Another book full of wonderful imagery, even when it's the imagery of just how tough it was to have lived in a time and place that was at times, anything but sunshine and roses. The characters weren't the type that I immediately fell in love with. In fact, it took me a bit to warm up to them. The story, however, pulled me in from the first page and didn't let me go until the last. I will say that the story did drag in parts, but not enough that it made me put it down or walk away from it. Did I mention that there's a mystery that needs solving? You know my weakness for mystery and romance...heck, if this was somehow a cookbook too, I'd never put it down!
