Rachel Matthews isn't one to rely on others to take care of her. Homeless and alone, she still wants to make her own way and her own money to buy back the family ranch--even if she's forced into the life of a dance hall girl. Horrified by her circumstances, Rachel's brother, who is away mining for gold, sends a friend to rescue her.
Cattle baron John McIntyre is focused on acquiring as much land as possible in Montana and has little time to deal with a dance hall gal. Rachel isn't sure she can take one more day in John's home--especially once she discovers that he's the one who holds ransom the key to her family's future.
A Sweet Misfortune is another wonderful book by Maggie Brendan and the second book in the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series. I have to say I enjoyed it more than the first book in the series, The Trouble with Patience. I think the timing was better and the story kept my attention. The characters were really easy to connect with and it was fun to watch them interact with each other. A wonderfully written old west romance that you are sure to love.
5 out of 5. A sweet Afternoon Snack.
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
