The Trouble with Patience: A Book Review
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.
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.

Oh Patience and Jedidiah are absolutely my most favorite characters of any fiction I have read this year! They were so fun to read about and what their interactions throughout the book. It was delightful to watch their relationship and I absolutely love a strong female character in a fiction book. The book was a quick read, and very easy to read. Perfect for a weekend read with a cup of tea and cozy blanket!
I highly recommend this book and I give it a huge thumbs up!
