Book Review: The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan

Since all Patience's hopes for love are dead, she has decided to make it on her own. Since she has inherited her grandmother's boarding house, she plans to put her all into making it a thriving business. She has no time for anything that would stand in the way of that goal.
But it seems that the town's sheriff is always finding ways of being part of her life. He needs her help with food for his posse and prisoners, and like it or not, she needs help fixing up her boarding house.
As they get to know each other, they can't doubt the attractions, but will secrets from their past drive them apart or bring them together?

I enjoyed this cute historical romance. It was a quick read and even though it was slightly predictable, I still thought it was pretty good. Stories like this always make me hungry - seems someone is always making fried chicken and biscuits back in that time period :-) I really enjoyed reading about Patience and her relationship with her mother. Sometimes, I prefer those even more than the romance itself. I also really like when authors include some true facts from their story's time period at the end of the book - it really helps the historical part come to life for me and I appreciated that Brendan does that.

Thank you so much to Revell Publishing for a free copy of this book to review.
