Holding the Fort, Book Review

Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings

Louisa Bell never wanted to be a dance-hall singer, but dire circumstances force her hand. With a little help from her brother in the cavalry, she's able to make ends meet, but lately he's run afoul of his commanding officer, so she undertakes a visit to straighten him out. 

Major Daniel Adams has his hands full at Fort Reno. He can barely control his rowdy troops, much less his two adolescent daughters. If Daniel doesn't find someone respectable to guide his children, his mother-in-law insists she'll take them.

When Louisa arrives with some reading materials, she's mistaken for the governess who never appeared. Major Adams is skeptical. She bears little resemblance to his idea of a governess--they're not supposed to be so blamed pretty--but he's left without recourse. His mother-in-law must be satisfied, which leaves him turning a blind eye to his unconventional governess's methods. Louisa's never faced so important a performance. Can she keep her act together long enough?

My Thoughts: I was so happy when the publisher offered to send me Holding the Fort to review because if there's one thing I like better than Amish Romance novels it's probably historical romance novels. This book is a fun read! There's so much history packed in that I feel like I'm learning about the time period as well as being entertained. The characters are great and the story is compelling, and the love story was one of the best I've read this year! I'm for sure going to be looking at more of Regina Jennings's books in the future.
