The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan

Goodreads | Amazon
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.

Maggie Brendan’s The Trouble with Patience is an all-around delightful read. Patience Cavanaugh and Jedediah Jones both hope for love and romance in their futures, yet find events of their pasts getting in the way. As these two strong-willed characters continually cross paths in the most unlikely of circumstances, their developing relationship with accompanying feelings provides thought-provoking challenges they must work to overcome. Their story is entertaining and humorous, with many sweet moments, and I certainly enjoyed it. I would recommend it for fans of historical romance and now look forward to reading more from Maggie Brendan in the future.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of The Trouble with Patience and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
